The Ace Attorney series may now be a download-only franchise in the West, but at the very least recent entries have still been localised. The rather intriguing The Great Ace Attorney (called Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Bōken in Japan) is a recent exception, however, having stayed in Japan to date. A sequel was even announced for Japan last month, but we're still hoping for the original.

It's not hard to see why it's on some wishlists; it's set in Victorian England, and features an ancestor of Phoenix Wright who teams up with Sherlock Holmes. That is a setting that begs for localisation, though a little over a year ago Capcom France seemed to suggest it wouldn't happen.

Now, Capcom UK has either done a fun teaser or trolled eager followers of its social media account. The focus is on a tweet for a competition that happens to use music from The Great Ace Attorney. When quizzed on it the host of the video (the Capcom UK Monster Hunter Community Manager) simply says "Busted!"

We want to believe that this is a tease, but we're genuinely unsure. We suggest a policy of having hope that it's a pointer to an upcoming announcement, but don't invest too much emotion into it; it could just be a community manager being playful.

There's little doubt that plenty replying to the tweet hope it's a teaser; we shall wait and see.

With thanks to Doctor Overbuild for the heads up.
