Main characters teased in new announcement trailer.

The Ace Attorney series travels to Japan’s past in an upcoming installment from Capcom for the Nintendo 3DS: Dai Gyakuten Saiban - Naruhodou Ryuunosuke no Bouken. Development will be led by series creator Shu Takumi.

Set in Japan’s Meiji era, sometime between 1868 to 1912, the game focuses on Phoenix Wright’s ancestor, Naruhodou Ryuunosuke. The announcement trailer below showcases the architecture of the era, when Japan was transitioning between feudal and modern society, and two new characters.

The game currently isn’t confirmed for a western release. Check out the announcement trailer and let us know what you think!

Well, there goes my interest in the series. I was really hoping to see where the series would go post-Apollo Justice, but despite Ace Attorney 5 it seems Capcom still doesn't have an answer to that question.  Sadly, I've had more than my fill of the over-exposed feudal era in Japanese games & anime, so I think I'll pass.

Uh... the feudal era was much earlier, like Medieval times.

*looks up the era*

*shrugs* Eh...for all intents and purposes, late 1800s Japan wouldn't look that different, at least based on the screenshots I've seen.  In any case, my problem with the series was Capcom literally taking the series backwards, and that still stands.

The meiji era is actually not THAT well represented.  Think the clash between classic and modern, a la BRISCO COUNTY JR.

I guess this is another countless example of broodwars complaining about something despite that he has no idea what he's talking about.

I'd be much more interested if they set it in the future, and all the attorneys were cyborgs of some kind and there are all kinds of unnecessary blue lights everywhere.

It's late 19th century Japan, a country that was backwards even then. It might as well be the feudal era. And by the way, fuck you.  ;)

I'd be content just to see actual ramifications from the final case of Apollo Justice, where they introduced the Jury system.

That's like saying the Shakespearean era is the same as the Elizabethan era. Just admit your mistake, genius-level IQ. ;) ;) ;)

Um, I don't think you know your history as well as you think you do. They are not the same, even in the slightest. If I was Japanese, I'd probably take offense to that.

Oh dear, I've offended the Japanese, one of the most xenophobic cultures in the world. WHATEVER shall I DO?!!! *shrugs* And yeah, I've never claimed history was my forte. Whatever. By all means, keep dancing around my actual complaint about Capcom being petrified of moving the series forward.

And this is why I usually don't try writing posts on my phone. -_-

What if it only seems like the Meiji era and instead it's actually the distant future and it's basically the same as the Meiji era except the world is ruled by apes?

Can someone change Broodwars tag to "Hates Japan"

I daresay the sheer number of anime series. RPGs, and Vita games I talk about on NFR would imply otherwise.

I'd think a safer and more accurate title for him would be "Hates Everything."

I really liked Brisco County Jr.  back in the day.

Also I can't wait to see what Meiji Era California looks like.

Ian SaneApril 28, 2014

It's a nifty idea but I'm concerned that making the series even more Japanese is going to hurt the likelihood of it getting localized.

CericApril 28, 2014

I find it being Japanese one of its more appealing things.  That way we can all Feel Smug that are Justice system is at least better than that.

OblivionApril 28, 2014

Just because a culture is relatively xenophobic (and you're generalizing here), doesn't mean you should do the same.

Insano's right; just change your tag to "Hates Everything". :P

broodwarsApril 28, 2014

I don't hate everyone, just you. You know who you are, unless you're that guy. That guy's OK.  :P:

Thanks! ;D
