Series creator Shu Takumi is at work on a brand-new Ace Attorney game that takes the series more than a century into the past.
According to details from the latest Famitsu (as translated by Siliconera), The Great Ace Attorney is set during Japan's Meiji period, which took place from 1868 - 1912. Players will assume the role of Ryunosuke Naruhodo, an ancestor of Phoenix Wright (whose last name is Naruhodo in Japanese).
The game is set to come to 3DS and will be directed by Takumi. Also involved with development is producer Shintaro Kojima, whose previous work includes the Monster Hunter series.
