Capcom released an update today for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, which includes German, French, Korean, and Chinese (Simplified, Traditional) support.

In other words, if you're multilingual, you could have up to 60 save files!

We got a hint of this information yesterday with news of the Japanese release, but now it's official. The North American/European release date for Devil May Cry has been confirmed, and it's set for launch on June 25th, 2019. More importantly, the game is going to be priced at $20, which seems pretty damn outrageous. We all saw it coming, but it's still a tough pill to swallow.

Capcom has surprise-announced a mobile-to-Switch port in Captive Palm, set to launch in Japan on Aug. 30th, 2019. Capcom is going all-out on this game, as they've announced a regular retail edition, a ¥6,468 yen Deluxe Edition, ¥9,709 Collector’s Edition, and even more expensive options on their e-Capcom site. That's not to mention the download version for ¥3,989, with two additional content packs at ¥1,500 each or ¥5,989.
If you haven't already guessed, Captive Palm is a romance title. The game has you on the hunt for clues to a crime, and you get them by spying on a prisoner with amnesia.
Interact with Haruto, a mysterious prisoner who has been involved in some sort of crime, and has been sent to prison on a remote island across the ocean. Your job is to fight through Haruto's amnesia and help him recover his memories of the crime. You can only interact with Haruto via a glass divider in prison, and you'll eventually place your hand on the screen to "connect" with Haruto.
Other portions of the game having you moving around the island, questioning locals, finding clues, and picking up items to give to Haruto. Haruto will also send text messages and leave voicemails.
Check out the official Japanese site for the game here. It features more screens, as well as some pics of various preorder bonuses for retailers.
We can also look forward to a NicoNico live-stream from Capcom on June 1st, 2019 which is sure to share more info.
Mortal Kombat 11 was the best-selling game on the Switch in the United States for April 2019. Seeing a third party title top the Switch list was pretty damn fantastic! Hell, seeing any third party title top the software list for Nintendo hardware is something that rarely happens. As a matter of fact, its been 14 years since it last happened!
NPD's Mat Piscatella revealed that the last time a third party title took the #1 software spot for Nintendo hardware was back in Feb. 2005, which is when Resident Evil 4 took that honor on the GameCube.
Time for another day-one sales data round-up for Japan! Check out the breakdowns for Assassin's Creed III Remastered, Resident Evil: Origins Collection, Team Sonic Racing, and Minna no Doubutsu Shogi below.
[PS4] [NSW] Assassin’s Creed III Remastered (Ubisoft) – 20%. Unexpectedly, sales are quite low
[NSW] Resident Evil: Origins Collection (Capcom) – 10%. Extremely poor debut, even for the late port of remasters, but not too surprising for a bundle with only one game on the cartridge
[NSW] [PS4] Team Sonic Racing (Sega) – 20-30%. Poor debut, especially as sell-through ratio is based on 3 days of sales
[NSW] Minna no Doubutsu Shogi (SilverStar) – No sell-through ratio provided, which is definitely not a good sign.
