Great news for Phoenix Wright fans – a new Ace Attorney game has been announced for the 3DS, and immediately confirmed for an English language release.
You heard Wright! Ace Attorney 6 (working title), announced in Japan today, is also in development for the west!

The new game will be playable at the Tokyo Game Show from September 17 to 20, and reportedly has a new gameplay system that speeds everything up a bit (which is good news, because for all its numerous charms the last Ace Attorney game was a little slow-moving).
Sadly, there has been no update on whether Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Bōken – the Ace Attorney prequel that sees one of Wright’s ancestors teaming up with Sherlock Holmes to solve crimes, released in Japan in July – is coming west. Fingers remain crossed, as Kotaku’s Richard Eisenbeis’ recent review concluded that the game is “fantastic“.
