The Great Ace Attorney 2, or Day Gyakuten Saiban 2, has just been announced by Capcom at TGS during the “Ace Attorney Series 15th Anniversary Talk & Latest News Special Stage” event.We know little about this sequel, whose exact title is “Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke“. It is not known if it will come on 3DS  or on another platform, nor if it will make it to the West. The previous game had not been localized to the West despite  requests from fans.J anet Hsu, employee and translator at Capcom had explained the game had not been localized because of “a number of circumstances”. Ace Attorney 6 has just been released a week ago on eShop for $29.99 and features the adventures of Phoenix Wright in the country of Khurain, where lawyers are hated and trials resolved through a divination ritual. In addition to the trailer of Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2, Capcom also unveiled a video paying a tribute to the 15 years of the series. Dai Gyakuten Saiban is a bit different from other Ace Attorney Games as it tells the adventures of Phoenix Wright’s ancestor in the 19th century, during the Meiji Era.

    That really sucks; there’s no way we’ll get this in the West so I guess get ready for another long period with no Ace Attorney.

    • Hogtree Octovish

      Yeah, that’ll be three Ace Attorney games not released in either Europe or North America.
      Still waiting on Miles Edgeworth 2. 🙁

    • Panpopo

      You mean ace attorney investigations 2? There is a fan translation. Hopefully these two games get translated down the line.

    • Hogtree Octovish

      Yeah, that’s the one. Known as Gyakuten Kenji 2 in Japan.

      And, yeah, I know there’s a fan translation. But it just wouldn’t feel the same to me.
      I’ll check it out eventually, but I’d just prefer an official release.

    • Klagmar

      The fan translation is excellent and honestly to the same quality level as anything official Capcom might release. I just don’t have much faith in seeing a repeat with the Great Ace Attorney, especially since it is on the 3DS which is much harder to emulate.

    C’mon Capcom! Release this along with the first one. Better late than never!
