Phoenix Wright leads the way in Capcom's plans for 2014.

A new instalment in the Ace Attorney franchise is one of several key games currently in development at Capcom, according to a recent group interview with the Japanese giant's senior directors and producers.

Takeshi Yamazaki, who directed Nintendo 3DS title Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies, stated in an interview with 4gamer.net that the company had already begun working on the sixth entry in the long-running courtroom adventure franchise.

In this same discussion, Ace Attorney creator Shu Takumi also confirmed another new, possibly unrelated, title being developed by his own team would be announced some time in 2014. Takumi has taken charge of the original Phoenix Wright trilogy and puzzle game Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective on Nintendo DS, while his latest project was Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, the 3DS collaboration with Level-5 that is scheduled for release in the West next year.

Other titles in development include a revival of a classic Capcom franchise, which is expected to be revealed next summer. This news came from Kenji Sugiura, who produced the Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara arcade combo pack that was released in 2013 on the Wii U eShop, among other platforms.

No specific details were divulged regarding any of these upcoming games, with more information expected over the next few months and beyond.

"...And Mega Ma... What? We're not concerned with that franchise anymore? Nevermind, folks."

Certainly no new megaman, thats for sure. I'd be willing to bet we get three new street ighter games though. >.>

Nintendo should offer to co-develop the next Megaman exclusively for Nintendo platforms.

Perhaps a new Resident Evil? Although it would appear that since Capcom is a Japanese company they will focus more on Nintendo's handheld systems for the bulk of their games. I wouldn't mind seeing that new Strider game some how be ported to the Wii U and 3DS though. Perhaps Monster Hunter 4 HD for the Wii U?

Releasing games people want to play? Good job, Capcom!

Well, now that Capcom's done their once-in-10-years engine update on the Phoenix Wright series, it seems that it's time for the flood of near-identical sequels. THERE'S the Capcom we all know and love!

Sure, we made a game that fully supports DLC an could easily accept more additional chapters, but F-IT! We're putting out a new game every year for the next three years or until you're sick of it.

And all the sequels... also digital only!  Makes me wonder what the "per chapter" cost turns out to be...

I'm still waiting for Dual Destinies to either go on sale or be available as a retail release.  Not holding my breath for the latter.
