Newsbrief: Capcom has made the decision to release the upcoming Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies, the latest in the popular court-room adventure game, as a download-only title for Nintendo 3DS. The game, previously known as Phoenix Wright 5, will be released this fall in the U.S. and Europe, and will only be available to download from the Nintendo eShop with no retail release planned. "Historically it's been tough to attract long term retail support for Ace Attorney titles," explained Christian Svensson, Capcom's senior vice president. "With the release of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies we wanted as many people as possible to be able to enjoy the game for as long as possible." He continued, "With that in mind we have opted for a digital only release via the Nintendo 3DS eShop." Svensson added that, while he was aware this may upset some fans, "we believe this direction is the best to take."
