The Great Ace Attorney

The Great Ace Attorney debuted in Japan last year. Sadly, there hasn’t been any news about it heading west. That’s not due to a lack of interest from Capcom though.

Speaking with GameSpot, Ace Attorney series producer Motohide Eshiro mentioned that Capcom wants to localize The Great Ace Attorney. However, “a number of circumstances” are preventing that from happening at the moment.

Eshiro said:

“Unfortunately there’s a number of circumstances… We absolutely do want to bring it to the West, but unfortunately due to these circumstances right now… I’m really really sorry! Nowadays on the Internet lots of fans are directly asking us, ‘Where’s Daigyakuten Saiban?’ On livestreams, even in the Japanese ones, people from the West will write in and ask where it is. Every time we say, we’re sorry! Certain circumstances are kind of getting in the way.”

Towards the end of last week, Capcom announced that an artbook for The Great Ace Attorney will arrive in Japan later this year courtesy of Dengeki. A specific date was not shared at the time. It will be your typical artbook, and will contain illustrations from character designer Kazuya Nuri.

There’s been lots of Ace Attorney-related news lately since the next mainline game was announced this week. However, the latest spin-off title, The Great Ace Attorney, is still trucking along in Japan. Today marks the release of its eighth and final round of DLC. The eighth issue of Randst Magazine contains the following:

– a short episode with Sherlock Holmes on trial
– Nintendo 3DS Theme featuring Kazuma Asougi
– concept-art for the characters Episode 3 and 5
– Behind the Scenes video for the game’s sound effects
– beta music for Naruhodou Ryuunosuke

The most interesting thing about it, however, is that it also includes this message from Shu Takumi, basically the creator of the whole Ace Attorney franchise:

great ace attorney shu takumi 2

“London, at the turn of the 20th century…
I hope you enjoyed your great turnabout voyage.
The team is looking forward to the day we can meet you again in Ryuunosuke’s next adventure.”

Does this mean a sequel to The Great Ace Attorney is in the works? We don’t know for sure, but it’s definitely a possibility. Sadly, a Western release for a possible sequel seems pretty unlikely, given that Capcom seems to have no plans to localize the first one.

Via Famitsu, Capcom announced Ace Attorney 6 today. And amazingly enough, it only took a few hours for the company to confirm a western release. But what about the localization of the previous entry in the franchise, The Great Ace Attorney?

Sadly, we may have some disappointing news to share on that front. Tweets from Capcom’s French Twitter account indicate that there are no plans to bring The Great Ace Attorney to the west.

Capcom has now published the results – the most popular character is Kazuma Asougi, a close friend of main character Naruhodou Ryuunosuke, who himself only came in fourth. Second place is claimed by Sherlock Holmes and Barok Van Zieks, the rival prosecutor of this game, placed third. Check out the full results in the gallery below.

There is still no word on a Western release date for this game. Hopefully we’ll hear about it soon.
