tldr: Should I buy Phoenix Wright on iOS right now and I'll be able to buy only the two last in july when all 3 will come out HD on iOS, or will I be stuck to buy the 1st one twice?

Hello Stackgaming,

I just saw that the first Phoenix Wright can be bought on iTunes. I wanted to get in this series for a while now (I don't have a DS) and this is my occasion.

I also heard that in july, capcom will re release all 3 Phoenix Wright's on iOS, in some HD collection.

Question is: If I buy the first one now, will I be screwed over when the triology will be re-released in july because I will have to buy the first one again or will they be 3 separate games, leaving me to only buy the two last?

Is the trilogy going to be the same app file? I rather doubt it, and as long as it's not, the games will be separate and thus getting one now isn't a problem. –  Ben Brocka Feb 29 '12 at 1:51
Thats the thing, I dont know if the triology will be 3 apps or only one. –  Fredy31 Feb 29 '12 at 2:00
This link makes it sound like the trilogy includes an HD version of the original game too: wireless.ign.com/articles/121/1217959p1.html sounds like waiting would be your best option regardless of whether it's 3 apps or 1 if you want the HD graphics. –  Ben Brocka Feb 29 '12 at 2:33
