It’s Ace Attorney’s 15th anniversary!

…Okay, so the series’ anniversary was in 2016… but Capcom is still celebrating, this time with a special Japanese live stream on April 17.

This live stream is meant to commemorate the entire series, but in addition to discussing Ace Attorney overall and revealing the results of character popularity polls, they’ll also be featuring the next upcoming game in the series: Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2.

Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2, also known as The Great Ace Attorney 2, is the sequel to the as-yet-unlocalized Dai Gyakuten Saiban. Both games star Phoenix Wright’s ancestor.

Only a few details have been revealed about Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2 so far, but this live stream will include new information and its first live gameplay footage.

It’s probably too much to hope they’ll announce localization of the first game during a Japanese live stream, but I still believe the success of the sequel will improve our chances. (Unless copyright reasons are getting in the way, in which case we might not have a chance at all. But I prefer optimism!)

Are you interested in Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2? Do you think we’ll ever see The Great Ace Attorney released outside of Japan?

  1. If only? :/

  2. “Unless copyright reasons are getting in the way”

    Which ones are those?

    • The vast majority of Sherlock Holmes stories are in the public domain and can be used freely. However, 10 Sherlock Holmes stories are not–they’re still under copyright, and the author’s estate has gone after anyone who does anything that could be related to them. Unfortunately, while I don’t think it’s a main focus, Dai Gyakuten Saiban includes a couple small references to some of the copyrighted stories.

  3. I hope it comes to the US one day!
