A few days ago we brought you the exciting news that Phoenix Wright would be returning in Ace Attorney 5, but were unable to confirm that the game would be making its way to the west.

We can now happily report that fresh evidence has come to light and a western release of the game is very much on the cards - and that's no idle speculation, but straight from the mouth of a Capcom representative.

"Capcom is planning to release Gyakuten Saiban 5 (Ace Attorney 5) in the West," is the official line according to Kotaku. "We'll have more news soon."
