If you’re eagerly waiting for a new Ace Attorney game, the latest issue of the Japanese magazine Famitsu has something juicy for you, as outed by Twitter user Rokko, that managed to grab an early copy.

The new game will be titled Dai Gyakuten Saiban (Big Turnabout Trial) and will be set in the Meiji era, right in the middle of the power struggle in Japan between the Shogunate and the forces loyal to the Emperor seeking to bring innovation and change in the country.

The game will also be a 3DS exclusive, which is fully unsurprising.

One thing is for sure: I really want to see how Capcom will manage to westernize this one when localizing it for the west, if it’ll be localized at all, that is.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
