Capcom Announces Gyakuten Saiban 5

Also known as Ace Attorney 5.

Believe it or not, the Ace Attorney series has just turned 10 in Japan. To celebrate the anniversary, Capcom held an event in Japan where they announced their plans to produce the fifth mainline entry in the series. The company offered no information about the game, simply the logo and that production has begun. Platform, international release, and protagonist are all currently unknown.

Known in Japan as Gyakuten Saiban, the Ace Attorney series began life on the Gameboy Advance. It has since gone on to become a big hit with international audiences on the DS, spawning a number of ports to other platforms as well as a spin-off series known as Ace Attorney Investigations. The second release in that series, known in Japan as Gyakuten Kenji 2 still has yet to hit American shores, so it's currently unclear if Gyakuten Saiban 5 will also be quarantined in Japan.

I love how this article has gotten no responses. I don't care for these games personally, but it was always my impression that they were pretty well loved. Is a fifth game too much? Are people ready for it to go on hiatus for a while?

You know, I never got a chance to play a game in the series.  This and professor Layton have been on my radar for a while, but I just never got around to picking them up.

Layton has really good puzzles, but I get tired of talking to NPCs I don't care about to initiate them...
