Ace Attorney Is The Video Game We’ve Been Hoping For

A clever box art mockup made by a fan has reimagined acclaimed Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul as an Ace Attorney game from Capcom.

A fan-made box art mockup reimagined AMC’s breaking Bad spin off Better Call Saul as an Ace Attorney adventure game from Capcom. Created by Dino Crisis veteran Shu Takumi, Ace Attorney centralizes legal drama with visual novel mechanics for an experience structured around the premise of being a defense attorney. The first entry, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorneyhit store shelves for the Game Boy Advance in 2001. Capcom has since published multiple sequels and several spinoff titles, quite a few of which have launched on other consoles and mobile devices.

Talented members of the gaming community think up creative mockups on an almost regular basis, making their dreams come to life in fan art or mods that showcase that which will never come to pass. One recent example involved graphic designer Rock Rider imagining an Injustice 3-style roster filled with Marvel heroes and villains, including the likes of Spider-Man, Kingpin, Captain Marvel, and Black Widow. Fans have even gone so far as to turn mockups into real products, as seen with YouTuber GingerOfOz’ portable and functional GameCube console.

One recent fan-made mockup from Twitter user Real Fake Licensed Games imagine the hit AMC series Better Call Saul as an Ace Attorney game for the Nintendo DS. Notably, the mockup comes complete with box art featuring Saul Goodman, Kim Wexler, Mike Ehrmantraut, and Chuck McGill. It’s the Ace Attorney spinoff that few knew they needed until Real Fake Licensed Games brought the idea to the forefront. Check out the art in the Twitter post linked below:

Suffice it to say, Better Call Saul would make for an interesting Ace Attorney-like visual novel, especially when taking Saul Goodman’s often over-the-top courtroom antics into consideration. And given the sheer number of popular TV series that have received video game adaptations in the past, it would not come as too much of a surprise if the breaking Bad spinoff did one day receive the interactive adventure treatment.

The most recent Ace Attorney experience, The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolvehit stores for Nintendo DS in 2017, then migrated to Nintendo Switch, PC, and PS4 platforms a few years later courtesy of The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles compilation. Now, fans of the series patiently await the release of a seventh mainline installment, which may take place after the events of 2016’s Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice. Reportedly, pre-production kicked off in 2019, with the project entering full development by 2021. Capcom has yet to confirm release plans for the long-awaited sequel, however.
