Take That! Ace Attorney 5 Coming Out In Japan This July

By Spencer . April 11, 2013 . 3:32am

imageCapcom inadvertently revealed the release date for Ace Attorney 5. A page for a Nico Nico Q&A session says the next installment will be available in Japan on July 25. I should say "said" since Capcom deleted the release date, but we captured a screenshot before that.


Phoenix Wright returns for Ace Attorney 5 with a new assistant who can listen to character’s hearts. Apollo Justice is also in the game and he looks pretty beat up. Capcom said they will release Ace Attorney 5 in North America, but have not announced a release date. We played the game at Tokyo Game Show and matched wits with Winston Payne’s younger brother. You can read our impressions of Ace Attorney 5 here.

    …and now begins the year long wait for the localized version. I hope I can avoid spoilers until then. I got spoiled for AA4 the day it came out in Japan. ;_;

      You should follow these steps next time.

  • MrJechgo

    Cool, but we still don’t know when Ace Attorney vs Professor Layton will ever come out thouigh :(

  • British_Otaku

    Pretty soon (for Japan).

    Here’s hoping that it isn’t that much longer for the rest of the world.

  • Go2hell66

    Wow that is much sooner than expected, hopefully a localisation will follow not too long after that

  • Ceci “Ruzuzu” Kiyomizu

    This game is going to make me eat my 3DS.

    YEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSS! Probably going to Japan this summer, so I can pick this up :)

  • Göran Isacson

    I hope for a winter release at the very LEAST for the localized version. Having some more Phoneix Wright to carry me through the dark months will be most appreciated.

  • AlteisenX

    Now if only Capcom followed Atlus by announcing localization for Professor Layton X Phoenix Wright and shortly after Phoenix Wright 5… Though it would now have to be vice-versa I guess lol… Oh well, at least we’re getting Phoenix Wright 5. (Hoping this sells well enough to warrant the localization of Miles Edgeworth 2… Still sour about that one)

    • J_Joestar

      To be fair, i believe that Capcom has left that up to Level-5 to handle at their discretion.

      Register and follow the Miles Edgeworth 2 fan translation:


    • WarioFan63

      The crossover is more of Level-5′s deal and I imagine it will release here this year as 2013′s Layton game of sorts with Layton 6 localization in 2014.

    Time to get your spoiler dodging caps ready. Only the strong will survive.

      Ohh ! O~ooh~ Wrestle~ma~ni~a! Yeah this is our nigh–”

      Oops, wrong topic, carry on XD

  • CirnoLakes

    It’s at least nice to know that Phoenix Wright is still doing well and Capcom loves it.

  • Taylor Davis

    I hope (at least) we get this year. Also I would like to have Professor Layton Vs. Ace Attorney please! It suck that its region lock *cries*. We’re missing out on games (well some games, anyways) Like for example beyond the labyrinth. *sigh* I’ll just have to wait, or maybe import a 3ds Japanese version one day.

  • ChromeH34rts

    I’m pretty excited for this! It’ll be interesting to see what the story will be like PLUS ( or hopefully) the 3D features will make it better. I’m curious as to whether or not the old characters might make an appearance… and an explanation for Apollo’s badass appearance.

  • Tiduas

    Seems it’s time to speed up that japanese studying.

  • Christian Lowe

    OBJECTION! Apollo Justice WILL be playable in Phoenix Wright 5! Heres my DECISIVE EVIDENCE! TAKE THAT!
