Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Aug 042017

Well, the second Dai Gyakuten Saiban (The Great Ace Attorney) game is now out in Japan.

Most criticisms I’ve seen about the first game concerned its loose ends and lack of resolution. It seems like it was written with a sequel in mind, and this game should bring everything together.

Look at that cover! It’s so cool! From the first game, the vampire-like prosecutor was enough to make me desperately want the game, but now he’s joined by several other awesome-looking characters in the background.

Unfortunately, there still has been no localization announcement.

For a while now, my hope has been that once the sequel came out to wrap up those loose ends, Capcom would consider it worthwhile to finally localize both games. If a significant amount of time passes now, and there’s still no news… it really starts to look unlikely. Whether the problem is copyright issues with Sherlock Holmes or something else, we might have to give this one up.

On the positive side, if it’s a copyright issue, we can start hoping again in… 2023.

What do you think? Do we have a chance of seeing Dai Gyakuten Saiban 1 and 2 (officially) in the West?
