Ace Attorney 5 confirmed for 3DS

According to the latest issue of Japanese weekly gaming bible, Famitsu, Capcom has officially confirmed Ace Attorney 5 for the Nintendo 3DS, as well as the fact that Phoenix Wright will be the main character alongside a mysterious new female costar.

Unfortunately, they weren't willing to comment on the game any more than that. Ace Attorney 5 was previously announced way back in January, but zero details were revealed for the next installment in the cult classic series. 

The same issue of Famitsu also appears to peg Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney for a November 29, 2012 release date, though that remains unconfirmed.

    Until they express intent on localizing, I'm not getting my hopes up.

    It should be noted that AAI2 had problems due to interest, considering Phoenix Wright had lots of Interest nowadays and that professor Layton vs Ace Attorney is building the interest even more for both, they would definitly Localize, Level-5 in charge of PLvsAA is already gonna localize it considering their history so theres that.

    Apparently Payne's brother will be filling in for the original. Hopefully he's just as dim as Winston.

    I saw this at FREAKING AWESOME There was Info, Apparently Wrights back, but its a Year AFTER Apollo, where he gets his badge back, he's accompanied by a new female, and the first case will have Payne's Younger Brother. It will use the similar Incredibly detailed 3D model style used in Layton vs Ace Attorney and TGS will have a 15 minute demo on it. There were pics, you should REALLY post them.
