After Capcom confirmed its upcoming Ace Attorney 6 will be getting a Western release, many fans of the series were hoping this meant a translation of The Great Ace Attorney (Dai Gyakuten Saiban in Japan) was also in the works. Unfortunately, it looks like that doesn’t appear to be the case as Capcom France has confirmed there currently are not plans for The Great Ace Attorney to be release in the West.
Responding to a fan’s question on Twitter for more information regarding The Great Ace Attorney, Capcom France responded with the following, translated from French by Bing, “Unfortunately the title is not intended for released in the West.” While the translation may be a little wonky when translated to English, the message is very clear: don’t expect The Great Ace Attorney in the West.
It's a shame Capcom doesn't plan to release The Great Ace Attorney to the West as it appears there's a large community of Ace Attorney fans who would purchase a translated version of the game. We've reached out to Capcom to see if we can get a concrete answer as to why the game won't be released in the West and will update this story accordingly.
