This week’s issue of Famitsu contains the announcement for The Great Ace Attorney. As part of the “reveal”, series creator and director Shu Takumi and producer Shintaro Kojima shared a few words about the game.

Here’s a roundup of what was shared, courtesy of Siliconera:

Takumi on what kind of character Ryuunosuke Naruhodo is…

“Well, the two keywords are ‘Meiji Period’ and ‘Phoenix’s ancestor’ so you might be able to get an idea from that.”

Kojima on new heroine Susato Mikotoba…

“She’s basically the type of person that she appears to be. Pretty much a graceful Japanese woman, a proper girl who does everything the proper way.”

Takumi on whether or not Susato will be taking care of Ryuunosuke in such a manner…

“The Wrights will be Wrights. I’ve barely met these characters myself, so I can’t exactly say too much about them. I think that we’ll get a better understanding as we go on with production. Some characters show up more while writing the scenario, sometimes when they speak their lines, so we’re kind of waiting for that as we write, for now.”

– Current challenge is getting the proper Japanese dialect and expressions right
– During the Meiji Period, it was a time where there was a lot of focus of jumping into the “new world” of westernization
– Occupations such as lawyers were a new thing at the time
– One thing they’re being careful of, is not to lose the balance of words and expressions that might be either too old-fashioned or too modern for the era

Takumi on whether The Great Ace Attorney’s game flow will be similar to past games of the series…

“I can’t say anything about that for now. However, the image and feel behind its play will be quite different from all the other Ace Attorney games up until now.”

– Will be showing screens/info in the near future

Message for the fans…

Takumi: “It’s been a while since I’ve participated in making a new Ace Attorney game, and things are a little different from the earlier days; however, as usual, I’ll be doing my best and putting all my effort into it, so that this one [The Great Ace Attorney] won’t lose to the past games I’ve worked on.”

Kojima: “While it’s not a main-numbered Ace Attorney title, it’s the start of a new series called The Great Ace Attorney. I believe that it’s becoming something that can show that it’s not simply just a derivative title. We can’t say too much about it for the time being, but we’ll be revealing more on the characters and their backgrounds next time, which we hope you all can look forward to. It’s really becoming something that gives us high expectations for, so please look forward to it!”


Mikotoba Susato is a new character in The Great Ace Attorney. As described by Court Records, she’s “an ideal Japanese woman, lover of foreign detectives and a progressive dreamer”.


A few details have leaked out of Famitsu regarding The Great Ace Attorney (otherwise known as Dai Gyakuten Saiban).

The game stars Ryunosuke Naruhodo, who is the ancestor of Ryuichi Naruhodo. It’s worth noting that Naruhodo is the name for Wright in Japanese.

Shu Takumi will be directing this new Ace Attorney project. Shintaro Kojima, who previously worked on E.X. Troopers and the Monster Hunter series, is producing.


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.
