Famitsu recently published a couple of interviews with Shu Takumi, the creator of Ace Attorney. In case you missed it, we posted the first part here. We’ve also been working on a translation of the second interview, which was much larger in scope. Due to the length, we’ll be posting it in two parts.

Below, you can read up even further on the creation of the Ace Attorney series. Takumi talks about what the first game’s prototype was like and the team initially thought that development could have been suspended, how Maya and Mia got their roles, and more. You can read our latest translation below, but if you haven’t played the series, you may want to pass on it for now due to some light spoilers.
