Remixed tracks did little for me either as they sound barely different from their original counterparts but the variety is appreciated. Special notice that two of the tracks are locked behind a ‘day-one dlc’ code for first print orders which is a scummy practice regardless. One of these tracks is from a prominent game’s locations so can’t unlock it otherwise. This commercial approach is very questionable.
Story explanation is not necessary as you can read it above. It really has that good ol’ Phoenix Wright vide to it which newcomers will surely enjoy and existing fans will appreciate even more. The actual narrative is very good from start to finish and it is presented in bite-sized chapters, never too long or short. Part mystery visual novel and part puzzle solving game both elements mix surprisingly well. There were only one or two out-of-place instances that reminded me that I was in fact still playing a game instead of experiencing the narrative.
The real star of the show is no doubt the HD graphics. They are fantastic to look at and are a huge leap from the handheld’s original. It is noticeable that this is a port as some animations looks less graceful than the others in higher resolution, but that is in no way a deal-breaker. Game’s presented in a letterbox which can be customized with unlockable backgrounds on both sides of the screen. You get a bunch extra with the music dlc code but sadly one among those outright spoils the game’s ending if you are not careful!
Closing thoughts is that this game is absolutely worth experiencing either for the first time or once more if you, like me, have not touched it for years. I fell once more in love with Sissel and his last night on earth to solve the many mysteries behind his death. I would have appreciated voiced narration but that's a tall order for this quirky little port.
The remaster is great.The music has been given a slight upgrade, with each track getting a new arranged version (you can switch between the old version and the new one).The original 256*192 resolution is now full HD. New control system keeps the same feel and intuitiveness of the original touchscreen controls.
Thanks to Capcom and passionate fans ,we can now play this little gem on modern hardware.
