Why not sign up for a (free) account?
So it is an Ace Attorney game but set in the past?!

It's gonna be a lot tougher for the localization team to change the setting into America this time around...

Cool. Very cool. Sherlock-Holmes era but set in Japan? Me likey.

@nate38 Nah, they can just do what they did for the old games. Change nothing in the content, switch the city names to American names, and call it a day.

Japan gets this game in July. Hopefully we get it soon afterwards! Or, you know, at all.

In the mean time, enjoy some animations. They were so good in Dual Destinies, these might be even better.

More at Siliconera.

Looks so insanely good. Man I need to take like a month off and do nothing but catch up on Ace Attorney games... and I never finished Ghost Trick much to my shame.

I totally forgot this existed.

Me too. This is assuming I ever knew. I forgot, so I can't know for sure.

I like the whole Back to the Future thing. All of their ancestors look exactly like their descendents, and they still all travel in the same circles even hundreds of years in the past .

Japanese trailer with subtitles at Kotaku.

It launches in Japan in July. Still no word of a western release. Maybe at E3? Fingers crossed.

The next Ace Attorney game has been announced in Japan. And with no announcement of Dai Gyakuten Saiban for the west, that means we have been lapped by Japan. This sucks.

Uggggggg. At least do another digital only release Capcom!

So yeah, that's obviously fantastic. But still no word on Dai Gyakuten Saiban. Which would be a shame, it looked really good and I think got good JPN and import reviews.

So depressed.

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.

It wouldn't be that hard to localize, actually. Just say from the outset that Phoenix's ancestor is Japanese. Done.

Oh well.

Whoa! Really, AA6?? I'm VERY excited about this, I love the series and I loved Dual Destinies. And I have to admit, I was having a hard time getting excited for Dai Gyakuten Saiban.

Capcom says "circumstances" are preventing them from bringing this game to the west. Man I HATE circumstances!

I want to make a pithy joke about this but I'm too bummed.

The only circumstances I'll accept is if the localisation team is tied up with bringing AAI2 over.
