The lights are on
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies is not coming to retail, which has made us curious how much the game is going to cost. Capcom has revealed the game's price, and also offered a number of new screens.
The game will be $29.99 when it becomes available on the 3DS eShop, which is a little less than the average full retail 3DS release. Capcom has not unveiled an exact release date for the game, other than the ambiguous fall 2013 timeframe. Along with the reveal of the price on Capcom's blog, Capcom also offered up a handful of screenshots from the game, which you can see in the gallery below. In the screens you will get a good look at bad guy Simon Blackquill and his falcon pal Taka, and some kind of panda in a box.

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
Hmmmmmmm if only I had a 3DS.
Well, I guess this will only make it easier and cheaper to get the game.
Day one buy for me. I'm a bit bummed that I wont have a physical copy, but I'm sure i'll get over it as soon as I boot up the game.
Those screen shots have really funny dialogue.
Haha, that's a good screenshot of Apollo there...
Yes! I am so going to buy this! I'm still sad that we won't be getting a physical version, but i'm glad that we are at least getting the game.
I'm going to be a real nerd here, but if the bird's name is Taka, then it's probably a hawk of some sort, not a falcon, as taka is the Japanese word for hawk.
This has to be the highest priced Digital only game to date.
I'm disappointed that it won't have a retail release here, but I can't pass up a new Ace Attorney.
Nice. Very nice.
I still want a physical copy though..... wish capcom would just release a few physical copies the game.... oh well there goes a good game.
I'm still going to be buying this, even though I would much rather prefer buying a physical copy. The only thing protesting will do is make Capcom think "Nobody is buying this game, so we are not going to waste our money making anymore." Big corporations will pay attention to money way more then with complaints, so if you want boxed copies of this series, you are going to have to show Capcom that you really want this series to continue by voting with your wallet.
