Take that! Ace Attorney 5 going west


Well this is something of a surprise. I assumed Ace Attorney 5 would be getting an English language release, but I didn't expect Capcom to actually go ahead and confirm it so soon.

Multiple sources (KotakuPocket GamerSiliconera) have confirmed with Capcom that Ace Attorney 5 is going westward. A Capcom representative also added that they use the "west" to refer to both America and Europe, so take that as you will.

This is great news for English speaking fans of the series who I'm sure were concerned about the fate of Phoenix and company. Considering folks outside of Japan never got Ace Attorney Investigations 2, I can understand why folks might have been a bit worried about this. 

Additionally, Capcom has opened up an Official Website for Ace Attorney 5, complete with tons of images and some extra gameplay details. There are a couple of shots of the new system that allows you to change the expression on your face in an attempt to get the witness to respond.

I don't know about you guys and gals, but I'm fairly impressed with the 3D models. At this point the only thing I'm concerned about is the animation.

Expect more details in the coming weeks.

EDIT: Added a few more images from Andriasang
