Fresh off the back of our review of Dual Destinies and the release of Professor Layton VS Phoenix Wright at the start of April, Capcom have unveiled news of a new Ace Attorney games in the works.
The new Ace Attorney title is reportedly going to be set during the Meiji era in Japan which ran from 1868 to 1912, rebuilding much of Japan’s society in to the more modern one which stands today and will have you take the role of an ancestor of Phoenix Wright, the series main protagonist.
Although the title has not been confirmed for a release here in the West, this would not be the first title in the Ace Attorney series not to be released here. The series has a cult following and is seen as more of a niche product outside of Japan, basically meaning that we miss out on the occasional awesome sequel.
For example, Ace Attorney: Miles Edgeworth Investigations, a spin-off to the main Ace Attorney series which was released in 2010, was given a sequel which never saw a release outside of Japan.
With this in mind and given that the latest entry of the Ace Attorney franchise – Dual Destinies, only made its release in North America and Europe as a digital download exclusive on the eShop last October, Ace Attorney followers will have to sit with fingers crossed yet again in hope that the fine folks over at Capcom will send the next entry in the court room battling series over to us fans in the West.
If not, Capcom should certainly expect fans to send over a serious OBJECTION!
