Ace Attorney 5 Announced for Japan—Will It Go West?

Capcom dropped a bomb today, announcing in Japan that Gyakuten Saiban 5 will be made. Known in the west as Ace Attorney, this is cause for joy among fans of the courtroom adventure series, but international release plans are unconfirmed.

While Ace Attorney has been solidly successful in the West despite (or perhaps thanks to) its unusual premise, not all games in the series have released outside Japan. Ace Attorney Investigations 2 is one such title.

Capcom also announced that the first three games in the Ace Attorney series will get high-definition re-releases on iOS and Android devices but, again, made no mention of international release plans for these versions.
