News Judgment: 'The Great Ace Attorney' Starts New Series

A new Ace Attorney game was recently announced called The Great Ace Attorney, and the announcement revealed that the game would be a pretty big departure for the series. The game is set to take place about a century before the current Ace Attorney games and will star an ancestor of Phoenix Wright. Now, the series creator Shu Takumi and producer Shintaro Kojima have revealed that this will be the start of a new series.

Kojima said the following in an interview with Famitsu:

“While it’s not a main-numbered Ace Attorney title, it’s the start of a new series called The Great Ace Attorney. I believe that it’s becoming something that can show that it’s not simply just a derivative title. We can’t say too much about it for the time being, but we’ll be revealing more on the characters and their backgrounds next time, which we hope you all can look forward to. It’s really becoming something that we have high expectations for, so please look forward to it!”

Condemn (OR) Condone:

I really like that the series will be going in a new direction without casting aside the original series. It’s really good news to hear that this won’t be a one-off effort, and we’ll actually get to see a less technologically-advanced world be fleshed out. Judgment: Condone.

New Ace Attorney Game Set A Century Before Current Games In Series?

The Ace Attorney creator Shu Takumi is working on a brand new Ace Attorney game called The Great Ace Attorney, but has revealed that this one will be set 100 years in the past and will star an ancestor of Phoenix Wright.

Famitsu (via Siloconera) revealed that the game is set during the late 1800‘s and stars a character named Ryunosuke Naruhodo, though it is expected that the character’s name last name will be Wright in the American release.

The Great Ace Attorney is set to release for the 3DS, although an official release date has yet to be announced.

Condemn (OR) Condone:

This sounds like it could be a breath of fresh air for the series. Imagine having court cases and investigations without the technology that exists today. Now *that* would be pretty cool to see!
