The 3D Leap of Ace Attorney: A Visual Upgrade Worthy of OBJection! 💥🎮

Capcom had no reason to object after the crossover title

The Ace Attorney series went 3D thanks to Professor Layton’s persuasion.

Have you ever wondered why the iconic Ace Attorney series made the switch from its beloved 2D graphics to stunning 3D visuals? Well, it turns out that Professor Layton played a significant role in influencing this transformation. In a recent interview with Kenichi Hashimoto, the producer of the upcoming Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy, the reasoning behind this bold change was finally revealed.

🔍 As reported in the latest issue of Play Magazine (Issue 36), Hashimoto stated that the team initially had no plans to shift to 3D during the development of Apollo Justice. However, everything changed when the crossover game, Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, was released in 2012. They were blown away by the success of the 3D visuals in this unique collaboration.

Hashimoto reminisces, “During the development of the fifth game, Dual Destinies, we saw how successful the 3D visuals were in Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney. Combined with the capabilities of the then-current Nintendo 3DS hardware, we felt that we couldn’t ignore the 3D possibilities.” This pivotal moment led them to experiment with a visual style that combined 3D models with the charm of 2D art, resulting in an even better outcome than expected.

➡️ It wasn’t until 2013’s Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies that the Ace Attorney series finally embraced 3D graphics. Similarly, Level-5, the developer behind Professor Layton, decided to incorporate 3D animation for all subsequent Nintendo 3DS games after the success of their crossover endeavor.

Now, fast forward to the present day—we’re on the brink of a brand-new adventure with the upcoming release of the Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy on January 25, 2024. Excitingly, this trilogy will be available not only on Nintendo Switch but also on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, ensuring that fans of courtroom drama can experience it on their preferred platform.
