Ace Attorney Investigations Collection launches for Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC worldwide on September 6

Capcom has confirmed that they will release Ace Attorney Investigations Collection simultaneously worldwide on September 6. After originally revealing the compilation at the June 2024 Nintendo Direct, the company added that it will also be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and Microsoft Store in addition to Nintendo Switch.

This compilation will feature both entries in the Investigation spin-offs starring the prosecutor Miles Edgeworth. The confirmation of this release is huge since that means we finally get to see an official English localization for the second game, which shall now be known in English as Ace Attorney Investigations 2: Prosecutor's Gambit. In doing so, Capcom is also preparing new official localized names for the game's original characters whom some of the series fans have already grown accustomed to with the fan translation patch.

In the following list, you can check the original Japanese names, the unofficial English names from the fan translation patch, and the new official English names for several AAI2 characters that we have spotted in the compilation's trailer and website:

  • Tateyuki Shigaraki --- Raymond Shields --- Eddie Fender
  • Hakari Mikagami --- Justine Courtney --- Verity Gavèlle
  • Yumihiko Ichiyanagi --- Sebastian Debeste --- Eustace Winner
  • Tei-kun Ou --- Di-Jun Huang --- Di-Jun Wang
  • Mikiko Hayami --- Nicole Swift --- Ms. Lloyd (first name yet to be known)
  • Manosuke Naito --- Horace Knightley --- Mr. Knight (first name yet to be known)
  • Gai Tojiro --- Ethan Rooke --- Mr. Rook (first name yet to be known)

In addition to that, this compilation will also feature new HD sprites for characters in the exploration mode. Capcom will even retain the pixel art from the original DS releases, so players will be able to choose their preferred styles. Both games will also feature separately selectable voiceovers and subtitles in Japanese, English, French, German, Korean, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese.

You can find the official trailer and fact sheet for Ace Attorney Investigations Collection right below. With the six mainline Ace Attorney entries and the Victorian-era The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles released earlier, that means Capcom will soon finish bringing all of the in-house, non-crossover Ace Attorney titles to PCs and ongoing console platforms.
