New Ace Attorney Title Confirmed to be in Development
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Hopefully being pointed towards 3DS
Although its download-only release format won't have been to the taste of all series fans, gamers outside of Japan thankfully got a chance to play the latest entry in the Ace Attorney series — Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies — on the 3DS eShop; we thought it turned out rather well, awarding 9/10 in our review.
The Director of that game, Takeshi Yamazaki, has stated in a group interview with 4gamer that his team is already working on the next entry in the series, though there were no details confirming a platform. Ace Attorney series veteran and director of Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, Shu Takum, is also working on a new project, though no further information was given.
In a comment for retro enthusiasts old and young, meanwhile, Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara producer Kenji Sugiura has teased that another Capcom classic will be revived this year; considering the depth of the company's retro library that could be any number of things. We have a suspicion on what many fans would like to see, however.
This was a Japan-centric interview, so how many of these projects come to the West and in what form will be interesting to see. What classic game do you want Capcom to revive, and are you keen to play another Ace Attorney game on 3DS?
