Early copies of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu have begun to hit the internet, and with their translation comes news of a new Ace Attorney title. Capcom’s visual novel/adventure game isn’t just returning though–it’s bringing back Phoenix Wright. The new game, tentatively titled Ace Attorney 5, is “set one year after the events of Ace Attorney 4 and sees Phoenix Wright return to being a lawyer.”
The only other information we have right now is that “Wright has a new partner, a mysterious girl in yellow clothing.” We’ll likely know more in the next couple months, as official English information on the 3DS exclusive is made available.
Additionally, it seems as though an ad in the magazine contains a hint at a “November 29 release date” for Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney in Japan. This is consistent with the official “late 2012″ line. Rumors seem to indicate that the West will be seeing this anticipated crossover as well, although it will likely be a few months after Japan gets through with it.
