The Japanese market sure loves a marketing slow burn with drip-fed information, and Capcom has now kicked that off with another entry in one of its most beloved franchises. It's been confirmed in Famitsu Weekly that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 6 is in development for the 3DS and will feature "a new system for quicker play"; that appears to be the extent of the announcement.

It's pleasing news, nevertheless, and shows a continuing commitment from Capcom to keep the quirky series going on Nintendo's portable hardware. Its most recent release in the franchise was The Great Ace Attorney, which has performed reasonably well in Japan; we're still awaiting localisation details which, based on recent precedent, will likely be for an eShop-only release.

The 3DS has had a decent batch of Ace Attorney titles, overall - released globally we've also had Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy.

Are you pleased to hear that another entry is in development, or perhaps simply eager to hear localisation details for The Great Ace Attorney? Let us know.
