Ace Attorney 6 announced for 3DS; confirmed for western release

Capcom is getting ready to unveil its next numbered Ace Attorney game and has also confirmed we can expect a western release.


Ace Attorney 6 has been teased in the latest issue of Famitsu.

The next numbered entry to the popular Ace Attorney series will feature a new game system that enables quicker gameplay, although additional details are scarce at the moment of this reveal.

Ace Attorney 6 will be playable at this year’s Tokyo Game Show with Capcom giving those who demo the game a collection of stickers. Capcom will also be hosting stage events during TGS and will show a “special court video.”

Famitsu will publish an interview with members of the development team and we expect to learn more about the new characters and the game’s setting.

Capcom has confirmed with Shacknews Ace Attorney 6 will be receiving a western release. The company says, "Ace Attorney 6 (working title) will be coming to the west. We’ll have more information on the Western release soon."

Update: We're learning more information regarding Ace Attorney 6. Siliconera translated scans of the Famitsu magazine and reveals the game will take place in a mysterious country outside of Japan, which is a first time for the main-numbered series. While he's traveling outside of the country, he finds himself involved in a case in an area where the people have a belief in the supernatural.

The courtrooms in the game will use some kind of "Water Mirror" that's located on the ground, which will be used as part of its gameplay. The upper portion of the screen will have images and keywords on the water, while the lower portion has parts of the testimony and an option to present.
