New Ace Attorney to be set in Japan’s Meiji era

This week’s issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has the exclusive reveal on Capcom’s next Ace Attorney title, to be named as Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Ryuunosuke Naruhodou no Bouken.

Destined for the 3DS, it will take place during Japan’s Meiji era and will star Ryuunosuke Naruhodou, Ryuuichi Naruhodou’s (Phoenix Wright) ancestor.

The move perhaps takes a leaf out of Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, in which the defense attorney finds himself transported to a medieval city where the usual technological advances weren’t available to him.

Series creator Shu Takumi will serve as director, with Shintaro Kojima producing, although a release date wasn’t indicated.
