Despite previously being open to a physical release of the upcoming Phoenix Wright game, Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, those dreams seem to be officially dashed. Series producer Motohide Eshiro confirmed, as a part of a fan Q&A session, that Dual Destinies will be a digital-only release.
Eshiro expounds that, due to the fact that localization takes time, and Capcom’s warnings about physical copies possibly compromising the price that the game is at now, it would not be a wise move to release the game in stores. This way, manufacturing the game will be quicker, allowing it to land in the hands of fans much sooner.
Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies is due to hit the Nintendo eShop in the west sometime in the fall. No concrete date has been announced as of yet.
