    Years after the games’ original releases on the Nintendo 3DS, Capcom is finally ready to bring the two Dai Gyakuten Saiban games over to the west. Set to package the two previously Japan exclusive games, The Ace Attorney Chronicles will see an official translation and localization of The Great Ace Attorney and The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve. Both titles take place in the same universe as other Ace Attorney games, but these are set in the 20th century. Fan translation projects have been in the works for years now, with the first game being entirely playable start to finish in English. The official translation will launch on July 27th, for PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4, priced at $39.99. A physical copy will be available, but will be limited to the Switch platform.

    isn't this series just a visual novel? why would it run at 30fps?

    Why? While Nintendo is being mocked for it, Sony and Microsoft have a whole lot of ports from older games too.

    Porting a game is easier and cheaper that making a new game, more so if the changes in the port are minimal to non existent.

    A full remake like the Spyro and Crash trilogies is not usually what is done.

    Okami for the PS4 is Okami for the PS2 run on emulation and with a graphic filter for example.

    It was unexpected because Capcom have said several times in the past the games would never ever come west because of some bullshit about them being near impossible to translate due to the fact they rely on a lot of Japanese cultural references or something along those lines.

    At the very least, I hope that its release date will help finish the Fan Translations on the 3DS version.

    Then those who would prefer playing the original 3DS over the Switch version of the Game, with full English Translations, finally can.

    Fantastic news. Feel kind of bad for the guys doing the 3ds version of the second game, though.

    I can see the translation team soon receiving a C&D from Capcom's lawyers.

    That despite several games of the same franchise already being released in English?

    The other games in the franchise were set in the present day. The two getting realesed now are set a hundred years or so ago and have many cultural and historical references of the time people who aren't Japanese wouldn't probably know about. I guess they have worked out a solution to that problem.

    Also the other games are mostly set in America and feature mostly Western characters and cultural references where as these two games have a fair few Japanese characters ect ect.

    I didn't see this coming, considering all the Japanese culture that western countries wouldn't get. We already have fan translations, but still, official localizations will let more people play it, which is good.
    I think those were the words of the fan translation team, not Capcom.

    Capcom were saying as far back as 2015 the game would never come west. Here is one such example
