HandyGames on why they're bringing 11 games to the Switch

HandyGames has gone all-in on the Switch, putting out a press release stating that 11 titles from them are heading to the platform.
It certainly seems like a big gamble, but Chris Kassulke, CEO of HandyGames, has sat down with GamesBeat to explain why they made the move.

“It’s not too many games. We plan to release different games for different genres. We see the demand for building up strategy or even god games. Several games we develop are co-op multiplayer titles and they are not simple ports. The Switch is a perfect platform that just perfectly fit to our games.

...We like the Switch because consumers are paying for content on the platform. If we start a new venture, we have to kill off something else. We’ve been a mobile first company, but that changed completely this year with the Switch. We try something out. We’re flexible. We go for the next hot shit.”

Capcom blog update - Court Files: The Characters of Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, Vol. 2

Court is back in session with Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney out now on Nintendo 3DS in North America! As with last week, we’re taking a look at some of the loveable characters that make up the world of AJ:AA. If you’re new to the franchise, just need a refresher, or see some familiar names from more recent 3DS entries like Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies or Spirit of Justice, now is a great time to get caught up before diving into Apollo’s early court cases.

If you haven’t caught up on Apollo and Trucy yet, give that article a read before continuing! This time around it’s a trio of characters that will be central to finding the truth.

Even if you’re not that familiar with the Ace Attorney series, you likely know Phoenix for his bright blue suit, his rousing “OBJECTION,” and the pulse-pounding music that plays when you’re in pursuit of the truth. Having learned from the original Ace Attorney, his mentor and friend Mia Fey, Phoenix was a rising star in the courtroom, well-known for his ability to turn things around and secure a “not guilty” verdict in his endless pursuit of the truth. He never wavers in believing in the innocence of his clients.

Several years have passed since Phoenix’s debut in court, and it seems that he’s fallen on hard times. A court case gone wrong left Phoenix disbarred, unable to practice law and completely out of a job.
