I still don't understand why it's only the first 3 games. I understand they're the most similar and form a semi-cohesive narrative, but I mean poor Apollo Justice is just constantly left hanging. Still just a DS game without voice acting or movie sections like more recent games, but apparently not classic enough to make it into the bunches of remakes and collections and ports the series has gotten recently. Why can't poor Polly get some love?

Gyakuten Saiban 4 was very, very poorly received in Japan when it came out. Yes, even though it sold well.

Apollo himself ended up being popular in the long run, but the supporting cast of GS4 didn’t follow him on that journey, which is why they have mostly been reduced to minimal cameos and why Trucy has not resumed a position as assistant (since that also gets questioned frequently.)

They're also the first half of a now six part franchise hence why four isn't apart of this collection.

.....none of the game's in any form have had full voice acting.

This was pretty damn blatant with their shifting focus back on to Phoenix hell even Athena wasn't spared the pickiness of the Saiban fanbase. That's why I dread whatever they intend on doing with 6.
