[QUOTE] As much as I like Takumi, I have gained some faith in Yamazaki since playing the fan translation of Gyakuten Kenji 2. So right now I'm kind of in the boat that any Ace Attorney [/QUOTE] I heard very good things about Kenji 2. And I really need to play the fan-translation. But I mean that shows you that Capcom can be selective in their localization choices, preferring more "marketable/western-friendly" games, and skipping otherwise (see also EX Troopers being skipped over because who would want that when we have the amazing Lost Planet 3, right?) [QUOTE] Also I'm actually not sure if this means Capcom is skipping Daigyakuten for localization or not. I haven't seen them outright deny the possibility, so maybe it's just taking them a while to figure out how they want to approach it and they want something to distract the fans' attention in the meantime. That's kind of how it went with Dual Destinies and Layton vs. AA.[/QUOTE] Yes, Layton vs Phoenix Wright did come out in the west after Ace Attorney 5 despite being released in Japan in 2012. However, that was a Nintendo/Level-5 published game. And Capcom doesn't have much control in dictating that game's western release (I mean, it was out in Europe months before it got released in North America, that is totally a Nintendo Of America way of managing niche titles). There is hope though. Etrian Odyssey Untold 2 was localized after Etrian Mystery Dungeoun, despite being in reverse order from their Japanese release. I imagine localizing Untold 2 was a more tasking process since the Untold remake sub-series adds in a lot more story than your average Etrian game. So in a sense maybe the same is the case with Dai Gyakuten since that's more period related and it would be a harder task to have to start all over establishing everything in another language. I mean with Ace Attorney 6 you already have so much established, like character names and whatnot. [QUOTE] What worries me the most about this announcement is whether it will have an impact on Dai GS2. On one hand, we need it. On the other, it's difficult to have alternating storylines within a franchise like that. On the other other hand, there isn't room on the market for 2 Gyakuten games per year. Of all the franchises, I didn't expect GS to be the one following the L5 business model... It feels like they decided to milk it dry like they did with Bio Hazard. On the fourth hand, what's up with GS6 going to Ghibli Tibet. I guess it the answer they found to how making the game easy to localize without impacting the original version? I'm very confused. And running out of hands. [/QUOTE] It is very weird that GS is now a series that has multiple in-house teams working on seperate entries simultaneously. And they're both full original entries. It makes me wonder if Capcom has dedicated all this to GS then why not make another linked "trilogy" with linked cases across all games. Also, we did get Kenji 2, a sequel to a sub-series on GS. I suppose it's in Takumi's hand whether he want a sequel to Dai GS or not.
