A couple details and a single scan have popped up regarding Shu Takumi's new Ace Attorney game. All we know so far is what's revealed in Famitsu:
These details come from Famitsu...
- Titled Dai Gyakuten Saiban - Naruhodou Ryuunosuke no Bouken (Grand Turnabout Trial - The Adventures of Naruhodou Ryuunosuke) - Shu Takumi is leading the project - Takes place during Japan’s Meiji period (late 19th-century Japan, when the country first transitioned from a feudal society to its more modern form)
Click the above to check out some character artwork!
- roughly translates into Big Ace Attorney: Ryuunosuke Wright’s Adventure - set in Meiji era Japan - stars new protagonist Ryuunosuke Naruhodou - he is an ancestor of Phoenix Wright - Shintaro Kojima is producing - series creator Shu Takumi is serving as director - no release date announced
It would be such a bummer if we don't get that unique prequel. I love the character designs and concept based on the bits of media I've allowed myself to take a peek at. Not only that, but it was directed by Shu Takumi! An Ace Attorney entry directed by the creator of the series shouldn't be denied a localization. Hopefully that's not the case and Capcom is just waiting to announce it at a later date.
