Capcom France Rep Says The Great Ace Attorney Won’t Be Localized

Just as the upcoming Ace Attorney 6 has been confirmed for western release, the fate of series spin-off The Great Ace Attorney is more uncertain. A Capcom France responded to a Twitter question on whether The Great Ace Attorney would also see a western localization, to which he responded that it wouldn’t.

@capcom_france Awesome! But about Dai Gyakuten Saiban (in the past) you don’t have any info?

@ktouktou Unfortunately the game isn’t planned for a Western release.

The Great Ace Attorney, or Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Bōken in its Japanese title, was released in Japan this past July for the 3DS. Featuring similar gameplay to the past Ace Attorney games, it takes place in 19th century Japan and stars a detective in the mold of Sherlock Holmes.

The last Ace Attorney game to not be released in the west was 2011’s Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edworth 2 for the DS. The latter game has been fan-translated since then, so if The Great Ace Attorney were to skip the west, it may see new life in a similar fashion.

For now, the Capcom France rep’s comments should be taken with a pinch of salt. Keep watching for more news on Capcom and the state of The Great Ace Attorney‘s western release if it becomes a reality or stays inside Japan.
