Ended up splurging and getting the last three Ace Attorney games.  As far as I can tell, they're the best prices they've ever seen, and they all get really good reviews, so that should keep me busy for quite a while (as if my backlog wasn't already huge enough)

Anyone heard any actual rumors about the 3DS Phoenix Wright games getting ported? I'd much rather play them on Switch but I want to play them eventually somewhere and if that needs to be on the 3DS that's fine. I'll feel stupid if I buy them now and they get ported but I'm leaning toward grabbing them.

I feel like if you want to play them in the near future, you should grab them. The trilogy has been on 3DS and iOS forever, and it took Capcom until just recently to actually start porting it to other systems; there’s always the chance that they’ll be faster to port the other entries now that they’ve gotten started with the trilogy, but that’s counterbalanced by the fact that the newer entries aren’t as popular as the trilogy.

If anyone is looking for a cheap entry point to the 3DS library, GameStop is running a deal where you can get a new Scarlet Red 2DS system with a new copy of New Super Mario Bros. 2 plus a new select Nintendo Selects title for $79.99:

 

https://www.gamestop...89410 or 189412

 

Select Nintendo Selects titles include Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Starfox 64 3D, Super Mario Maker. and Super Mario 3D Land.

 

Let the complaints about the 2D system's design commence!  I have one as a backup system in case my original 3DS ever fails, and it's decent enough for what it does.

I'm sorry, but the regular 2DS is garbage.

Agreed unless you're giving it to a child who you know will drop it. It's a more resilient system from what I've heard.

The odds of it going lower digitally in the near future are much lower than the odds that the physical copy will get boosted in the next GS stealth bump. It was on the stealth bump list in April. I would personally take that chance. I'm still kicking myself for not buying a digital copy of BOTW when it was on sale for $39.99. This is Capcom though, so another sale is probably inevitable


I hear you. The problem is, I also want to "convert" my PS4 copy of FFXII to a digital Switch copy, but that gap is even larger.

Oh I know... I’ve got two of them lying around for just such an occasion. I think it is built more to be replaceable than it is durable. The hard plastic can shatter and the single “split” screen can get deep scratches easily.
