    To be honest I was surprised they even bothered to translate any of the games. The fact that you had a good run is pretty impressive for a series that's pretty goofy outside of the Japanese market.

    Perhaps you can find solace in that there might be a 3DS AA game in the works which might be worth translating.

    ALso, there's this from the director of the AA series:

    Which basically says: "Overseas fans are signing petitions to make overseas edition Ace Attorney Release available from Japan. (Signed e-mail address is required.)"

    The fact that he even knows about the petition give me even more hope.

    If the costs of cartridges, packaging, manuals, testing costs and marketing expenses, sales commissions, freight and overhead are so high, why not make a multi language localiztion in japan in the first place? People would then actually import these games, which Capcom will profit from.

    I think its more worrying that theres no information on the next main ace attorney game, in any shape or form.

    It'll be a real shame if we miss this part of the series. It also seems to indicate that the AA series isn't doing as well as it should be here in the U.S.

    A multi-language localization does not magically make those costs go away. There's very little overlap in terms of cost savings if you plan for multi-lingual localization. Most local costs need to be borne by the local subsidiary. Thus Capcom America needs to have its own marketing budgets, freight costs, etc. Same for Europe. Thus the number of units you are going to sell overseas really needs to make up for a lot of those fixed costs. If the numbers don't add up, then there's really not much point in doing the localization. Also remember that the AA series is first and foremost a Japanese franchise. It sells lots and lots of carts in Japan. I would consider it more of a 'cult classic' outside of Japan. A loyal fanbase, but certainly does not approach the numbers needed to sustain it, as has been indicated previously.

    most review say this is way better than the first one.

    Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth
    NA 157,884 / Worldwide 584,942

    AA3
    NA 265,277 / Worldwide 517,706

    AA4
    NA 233,825 / Worldwide 869,797

    Capcom really should the quality of Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth into account

    Ace Attorney Investigations 2 sold 211,238 copies in Japan in nine weeks. Consider what happened there recently......
