An anime based on Capcom’s Ace Attorney series was just announced at the Tokyo Game Show. Along with the news, it was confirmed that the show will kick off in Japan in April 2016. More details will be provided in the months ahead.


Capcom has announced the latest Ace Attorney title in this week’s Famitsu. It’ll be titled “Dai Gyakuten Saiban”, and is set in the Meiji era.

The new Ace Attorney will be a 3DS-exclusive title. You can find a scan showing art above.


Thanks to a new interview conducted by ONM, we have several new comments from Ace Attorney creator Shu Takumi about voice acting in the series. Takumi discussed the game’s original Japanese recordings, how he himself became involved as Phoenix Wright, and Hideki Kamiya’s involvement. Head past the break for Takumi’s quotes.

Initially, Phoenix Wright creator Shu Takumi intended to end things after the third game’s release.

He explained to ONM:

“I felt that Phoenix’s story had been told, and that the series should not continue. Knowing when to end a story is very important and I wanted to avoid dragging it out and having it become a shadow of its former self.”

We did eventually end up getting Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney. Phoenix Wright wasn’t playable, but he did appear in the game – a result that came about as a request from Takumi’s colleagues.

“Years later, when it was decided within Capcom that Ace Attorney 4 would go ahead, my position was that we should change the main character and tell a new story. I didn’t plan to have Phoenix in the game, but my colleagues said they wanted him to appear in some form, which is why he ended up being the accused in the first case in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney.”


Sku Takumi has reconfirmed development of a brand new Ace Attorney game. During today’s Nintendo Direct, Takumi teased that the project – which he’s working on personally – will be completely different from past entries. No further information was provided.

I’ve always had a soft spot for the Ace Attorney games. Their combination of legal drama, an exaggerated anime style and frequently hilarious dialogue resulted in some of the most memorable adventure games on the original DS. After passing the protagonist baton for a few entries, the original Ace Attorney —Phoenix Wright— returns to the courtroom with a fresh look and a few new faces. Unfortunately, I have a few objections to this new entry in the series. Phoenix might have retained his aptitude at bluffing his way through trials, but there’s a sense that the game’s writers have lost some of their ability to string together a cohesive story with interesting, well-developed characters.

Capcom intends to share news about the new DLC case for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies “very soon”. That’s according to a tweet published on the official Ace Attorney account yesterday.

The message reads:

It just so happens that a Nintendo Direct presentation is being streamed tomorrow. Might we hear something about the DLC then?
