Phoenix Wright’s latest adventure has a confirmed western release, though no dates at this time.
Ace Attorney fans were somewhat dismayed to learn that the most recently released entry in the series: The Great Ace Attorney, is not only set in a completely different time period of the other games in the series, but still has an uncertain fate for it’s western release. The good news is that Capcom has just announced Ace Attorney 6 – a direct continuation of Ace Attorney 5 – and has confirmed that it will get a western release.
According to reputable Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, Ace Attorney 6 will include an option for quicker gameplay, and will be worked on by series veterans Takeshi Yamazaki and Motohide Eshiro. That’s pretty much all we know for now – the article did not mention any further plot details or release dates, but given by the logo (above) we can safety assume the game will star Phoenix again.
Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies was the latest game released in the series (in the west, at least), and starred Phoenix along with cohorts Apollo Justice and new character Athena Cykes.
Ace Attorney 6 will be at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, which The Escapist will be attending, so stay tuned for more news!
