A few days ago, a user on the Capcom Unity forums asked if the West would ever see games like Monster Hunter and Ace Attorney ever again. Christian Svensson, the Senior VP of Planning and Business, took the opportunity to give Western fans of these franchises some hope.

He said that both the Monster Hunter and Ace Attorney franchises are still very important to Capcom in the West. He followed that up by saying, “You should read into that exactly what you’re hoping to (though I have no announced titles to point to at this time).”

Hopefully, we will hear some announcements about these franchises at this year’s E3.
