Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy (逆転裁判123成歩堂セレクション (Gyakuten Saiban 123: Naruhodou Selection); lit. "Turnabout Trial 123: Wright Selection") is a updated game compilation of the first three games in the Ace Attorney series: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Justice For All, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations. Initially released on the Nintendo 3DS, it is a graphical upgrade to the Nintendo DS and WiiWare versions of the trilogy, much like the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy HD compilation for mobile devices. The compilation also makes slight adjustments to localized scripts, including typo fixes. A new drama CD was bundled with limited edition versions of the Japanese versions of the game.[4]

The game was revealed on January 23, 2014,[5] and released on April 17 of the same year in Japan. The game was later announced for a Western release in the winter period as part of Capcom's reveals for E3 2014, and, like Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, is only available via digital distribution on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.[6] In all regions, the game features the option to switch from Japanese to English.[7]

Home console and PC versions

The game compilation was later released with redone HD graphics and interface for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam in 2019.[8] While this is not the first time an Ace Attorney game has been officially released on a system that is not from Nintendo, this is the first time it has been released on a non-Nintendo home console system, as well as the first time a non-Japanese version has been released on PC. This release later added localizations in French, German, Korean, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, making it the first time since the Nintendo DS releases that these games are made available in other languages besides English and Japanese.[9]


In the home console and Steam releases, there are multiple achievements available to get, many of which are carried over from the Trilogy HD release.
