The Great Ace Attorney aims to spawn a whole series

"Will be quite different from all the other Ace Attorney games."

The other day Capcom announced The Great Ace Attorney, a 3DS Phoenix Wright spin-off set in the Meiji Period. As it turns out, Capcom is hoping to turn this period affair into its own series.

Series producer Shintaro Kojima said as much during an interview with Famitsu (translated via Siliconera). "While it's not a main-numbered Ace Attorney title, it's the start of a new series called The Great Ace Attorney," he stated. "I believe that it's becoming something that can show that it's not simply just a derivative title."

Series creator and director Shu Takumi noted that The Great Ace Attorney will have a distinct flavour from the rest of the series. "The image and feel behind its play will be quite different from all the other Ace Attorney games up until now," he explained. Let's hope for more old timey lawer speak.
