Ace Attorney may receive other chapters with cross-over special ad “historical” setting such as the recent The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, considering that producer Yasuyuki Makino has proved somewhat of a possibility on the matter in a recent interview.
From the new issue of Edge there are some indications on the future of the Ace Attorney series, given the presence of an interesting interview with Yasuyuki Makino, which among other things spoke of a possible continuation of the cross-over initiative seen in the recent The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, which staged a story set at the end of the nineteenth century between Japan and London.
Although the original crossover was partially marred by the need to transform Sherlock Holmes into Herlock Sholmes in the western version, due to the difficulties that arose in the management of copyright on the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the idea was still very interesting and well characterized the new chapter.
Makino simply said that the use of new cross-overs with different historical settings “it’s a possibility”, an idea that is by no means excluded by Capcom, although there will still be a more careful consideration of the issue.
As demonstrated by the name change for Sherlock Holmes, the cross-over obviously determines additional difficulties, but this does not exclude that there may also be simply a historical setting with some particular theme in the next chapters of the series. We definitely liked the idea, however, as demonstrated in our review of The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles.
