Capcom has announced that Dai Gyakuten Saiban, or The Great Ace Attorney, will be getting a sequel in Japan, titled Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Kakugo. The title translates to “The Great Ace Attorney 2: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke’s Resolution” in English. No release date or platforms have been announced as of yet, leaving the door open for a Nintendo NX release.
Dai Gyakuten Saiban, which was released for 3DS in July last year, is a distant prequel to the Ace Attorney series. It is set in the late 19th century, and revolves around Naruhodō Ryūnosuke, an ancestor of Naruhodō Ryūichi (who is localized in English as Phoenix Wright). Capcom has announced no plans whatsoever to localize the game, or its newly-announced sequel outside of Japan.
Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2 will be set half a year after the end of the previous game. Apart from Naruhodō Ryūnosuke being back as the protagonist, the announcement trailer also confirms the presence of Mikotoba Susato, who serves as his assistant (and Maya Fey equivalent).
It is unclear as of yet who will be handling directorial duties for the game. While the mainline Ace Attorney games have been taken over by other directors, Dai Gyakuten Saiban was directed by series creator Shu Takumi.
