It didn’t take long after their recent announcement for Capcom to put out a trailer for their upcoming new entry in the Ace Attorney series, Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Ryuunosuke Naruhodou no Bouken. The title translates to something like “Big Ace Attorney: Ryuunosuke Naruhodou’s Adventure”, and, in case you missed the announcement, it will be quite a bit different than the other titles in the Ace Attorney series. Instead of being set in the future like the other games, the game will be set in Meiji era Japan and tell the story of Ryuunosuke Naruhodou, the ancestor of Phoenix Wright (Ryuuichi Naruhodou).
The trailer describes a new dawn of the law which arrives out of the upheaval of early 20th century Japan and the Meiji era. It also introduces Ryuunosuke Naruhodou, the game’s strapping young protagonist, along with the beautiful Mikotoba Susato, who presumably plays the role of Ryuunosuke’s assistant. Both characters are pictured above. Be sure to check out the trailer below for all the details.
Beyond that we don’t know much else except that the game will unsurprisingly be for the Nintendo 3DS. Of course there’s no news of localization, but as a longtime Ace Attorney fan I would like to make a desperate plea to any higher powers (like Capcom) that may be listening. Please, please, please localize this game.
