Any reason why the Phoenix Wright Trilogy isn't coming to Vita?

suitup19 posted...With as strapped for cash as Capcom is why would they port it to vita? It already is a niche title, putting it on a struggling handheld is just a dumb idea. iOS makes sense because of the amount of people with Apple devices. I love my vita but why do people on this board have to ask dumb questions so much?
5 million games over 15 releases. Sounds niche to me. Also it's huge compared to Vita games but compared to 3DS games in Japan it's dwarfed by much more popular games and an overall healthier software market. It's just a decent sized niche series.
There's advantage in making exclusive games.
Between a great exclusive and a great multi-plat, which one you think a console manufacturer would advertise in its e-shop? AA5 and MH3U spent a lot of weeks on the 3DS main page, for example.
Another big aspect are the console wars or just recommendation. Whenever people discuss whats the best console/handheld, they always come to exclusive games list. 2 pages of one about 3DS vs Vita and you likely see people talking about MH3U and P4G (good or bad). Had both being multi-plat (with no big problem) they would hardly be mentioned.
There might also be deals between the companies, though I don't think its the case here, because Nintendo doesn't even include 3rd party games in their ads, I doubt they would pay for them to be exclusive...
I don't get why Japanese developers in general don't go multiplat. Maybe the overlap of Vita and 3DS owners in Japan is just so big that it's not worth it? Western devs can do timed exclusives but they always come to the other platform still.
I like the second screen in these games and it would feel weird to me not playing them on a double screen device but apparently it works well on iOS.
Kind of lame with a last gen port to a backwards compatible device tbh but I can understand Capcom wanting some of that digital distribution cake.

It's kind of a Nintendo franchise. It may not be a first party one, and it has appeared on iOS and Phoenix has been in MvC, but as far as consoles go, it's kinda Nintendo exclusive.
So that's your reason. Another would be that Capcom clearly has little to no interest in supporting the Vita, plus the audience for PW is pretty firmly rooted on Nintendo consoles. So it is what it is.
Asking for an Ace Attorney game on Vita is like asking for a Danganronpa game on 3DS.
I think some of the reason that Capcom don't want to release on Vita, could be:
1) They will need to "re-paint" the game again but in HD, the previous games always was just simple "ports" of the DS game (even the Wiiware version), so technically it will take time to develop, not counting the add of touch controls of Vita and the others feature/gimmick that the console have
2) Actually i don't think if the game will be well received on Vita, i remember that was a Harvey Birdman game for PSP that was quite similar or a "response" of a Phoenix Wright game on a Sony handheld and wasn't very good
In any case it would be good if come to Vita, but if its 3DS only, I'm OK with that too

Exactly, Final Fantasy had "always been on Nintendo" prior to FF7. Tales jumped to Sony after the first game, same with Star Ocean. The Metal Gear Solid (solid games not the others) series got big on the Playstation, but that didn't prevent it from going to the Xbox and the Gamecube remake. The Gamecube remake would be the exact same situation of a very popular title getting an exclusive entry on a platform with a smaller user base, and it seemed to be a very big budget remake as well. The only explanation to TCs question really is exclusivity contracts and money, to this day there hasn't been a port of MGS: The Twin Snakes on any system. Same thing with the Resident Evil gamecube remake, which had fantastic looking pre-rendered backgrounds.

You missed the whole point.
That's a heavy dose of salt right there.
It's a forum about games. People often ask this sort of question - Halo on Sony, Dead Rising on Sony, GoW on 360, etc etc etc etc etc.
