Scheduling got in the way of Ace Attorney Investigations 2 localization
Ace Attorney fans have constantly asked Capcom to localize Investigations 2. It’s the series’ only game that never made it out in North America and Europe.
The lack of Ace Attorney Investigations 2’s launch overseas wasn’t related to concerns about sales, apparently. Series producer Motohide Eshiro told Kotaku: “The main reason was just scheduling.”
“The main reason was just scheduling. Also, the staff for Ace Attorney Investigations 2—after they finished developing the game, they were disbanded and went to different teams, so they weren’t in a position to localize.”
When asked if there is any chance of seeing Investigations 2 in the future, Eshiro said: “Can’t make any promises.”
