Operation Backlog Completion 2024

There was an Ace Attorney concert this past weekend, and many fans thought a new game or collection might be announced at it.

Following the reports from the ransomware attack on Capcom that Dai Gyakuten Saiban 1 & 2 would be released in a new collection and localized, together with Taiwan rating The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles earlier this year, fans have been eagerly waiting for an official announcement.

The concert seemed likely, especially since the concert announcement said it would feature music from Ace Attorney and The Great Ace Attorney, the first time the English title for Dai Gyakuten Saiban had ever been used by an official Capcom source.

Well, the concert came and went without any announcements.

However, it did leave us with more reason than ever to believe the localization news is real. At the concert, they used several titles from Dai Gyakuten Saiban that weren’t direct translations of the Japanese titles, and even referred to a character specifically by the localized name “Albert Harebrayne.”

What makes that even more significant is that Albert Harebrayne was one of the localized character names from the leaked (stolen) data.

So while The Great Ace Attorney collection hasn’t officially been announced yet, let alone its localization, it’s all but official at this point. I feel like it’s safe to say Capcom knows that we know and is just waiting for the right time to announce it. Personally, I can’t wait to finally get a chance to play the Dai Gyakuten Saiban games in English!

Do you think we’ll get Dai Gyakuten Saiban localization news soon?
