Last September it was announced that the upcoming Ace Attorney 5 would be making it over to Western shores. However, since then news has been relatively thin on the ground...

Hold it!

It appears Capcom's senior vice-president Christian Svensson has left some evidence in the Capcom Unity forums. In a small post he declared that more news on Ace Attorney 5 will be coming soon.

We'll have new AA5 news in the not so distant future to share though. We did confirm it was coming Westward back at [Tokyo Game Show].

An interesting clue from Capcom, we wonder what the news will bring. A release date would be very nice indeed.

The last time we saw a game from the Ace Attorney series in the West was in 2010 with Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, and we haven't seen Phoenix Wright as the main protagonist since Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations.

While the West has been deprived of the spiky-haired lawyer, he's been teaming up with another gaming icon in Japan in Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney. We've still not heard anything on the localisation of that one.
