Of the many bombs dropped during today’s Nintendo Direct, the most shocking (and exciting) may have been Ace Attorney Investigations Collection, a compilation of the two Investigations spin-off titles in the Ace Attorney series.

Ace Attorney Investigations Collection is due out on September 6th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and the Microsoft Store. Pre-orders are up digitally, with the game priced at $39.99 USD.

The especially juicy part is that Ace Attorney Investigations 2 is finally getting an official English localization. To start, it’s been re-christened as Ace Attorney Investigations 2: Prosecutor’s Gambit. Everyone knows a well-regarded fan translation’s been around for years, but I think hardly anyone would object to a Capcom-approved release.

Check out the Ace Attorney Investigations Collection reveal trailer below, and read on for more information and some screens!

Ace Attorney Investigations Collection Overview

Eureka! Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth and Ace Attorney Investigations 2: Prosecutor’s Gambit are coming together in one highly anticipated collection! Initially released for Nintendo DS, iconic crime scene examinations and witness confrontations return with new and improved features. And for the first time ever, Ace Attorney Investigations 2: Prosecutor’s Gambit will be available in the West after only being available in Japan. As a prolific prosecutor, Miles Edgeworth is in pursuit of the truth throughout intense investigations. Prepare to confront witnesses, find evidence, and use the power of logic to solve mysteries in Ace Attorney Investigations Collection starting on Sept. 6, 2024.

This fully remastered collection will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Windows and Steam. Pre-orders are also available now with a bonus of five specially arranged music tracks!

Additionally, this collection brings suspense and surprises from both Ace Attorney spin-off titles. In Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, players control Edgeworth as he puts his investigative prowess to the test, determined to reveal the truth no matter the cost. In Ace Attorney Investigations 2: Prosecutor’s Gambit, players must prepare for an even bigger challenge as Edgeworth faces off against new nemeses and battles for his right to remain a prosecutor. Throughout these cases, players will also learn to find inconsistencies in witness statements, put together evidence piece by piece, and uncover hidden information in Mind Chess!

Players can also investigate this collection’s intriguing cases even further with newly updated features, including:

  • Enhanced In-Game Look & Feel: Experience new HD visuals created by the original character designer from the series, more fluid character animations, and richer expressions with the option to switch between new and classic sprites.
  • History Functionality: Never miss an incriminating detail with the ability to review your conversation history to uncover inconsistencies and clues that might have been overlooked.
  • Story Mode: Immerse yourself in each case with an updated Story Mode that keeps the plot flowing seamlessly by automatically going through the gameplay on your behalf.
  • Gallery Mode: Dive into a packed catalog of illustrations, character animations, accolades, and soundtracks, including sketches, promotional art, and all 106 in-game background tracks. Gallery mode also includes 23 orchestral tracks, one completely new track, and five arranged tracks from the original Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth.
  • In-Game Soundtrack: Play using the original soundtrack or swap in the five newly arranged tracks. Pick the “Arranged” soundtrack through the Options menu’s “Soundtrack” setting to experience in a fresh new way!*

The fact we’ll be able to switch between the new and original sprites is an amazing touch. And the arranged soundtrack looks killer, though I do wish it was more substantial!

(We thought it was a very strong game.)
