Ace Attorney - Phoenix Wright | oprainfall

For those of you who have been waiting for the next Ace Attorney title, wait no longer! This weeks Famitsu revealed that that a new game is in the works for the Nintendo 3DS. However, it’s a bit different than you may expect. The new game is titled Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Ryuunosuke Naruhodou no Bouken, which translates to something along the lines of “Big Ace Attorney: Ryuunosuke Naruhodou’s Adventure”. Unlike the previous games in the series, which take place sometime in the future, Dai Gyakuten Saiban will take things in a totally different direction as the game will be set in Meiji era Japan.

The game’s protagonist Ryuunosuke Naruhodou will be an ancestor of Phoenix Wright (who’s name in Japanese is Ryuuichi Naruhodou). The game will be produced by Shintaro Kojima and directed by Shu Takumi, the creator of the series. As mentioned, the game will be released for the Nintendo 3DS, but beyond that no other information is currently available.

As per usual, there’s no news of a Western release for this game. I’ll be interested to see how this one unfolds since Capcom has been pretty set on Westernizing the previous games in the series (i.e. name changes, setting the game in Los Angeles), and it would be pretty darn hard for them to relocate a game set in Meiji era Japan to California. But I will keep my fingers crossed and, as always, oprainfall will keep you up to date on the latest news. So be sure to stay tuned!

    They wouldn’t necessarily have to relocate it though. Since it’s set in the past and is about Phoenix’s ancestor, who’s to say his ancestors weren’t from Japan and immigrated to the states later? It wouldn’t be all that hard to port it if they did it that way. 🙂
