2019 saw the re-release of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney TrilogyThe Great Ace Attorney Chronicles released in the West a couple of years later, and later this week, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy will be releasing, but though there’s been no shortage of Ace Attorney re-releases, the last time we got a new game in the series was all the way back in 2016 with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice.

How much longer are we going to be waiting for the next Ace Attorney game, then? The question to that answer remains unclear, but according to Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy producer Kenichi Hashimoto, the franchise is still very much in Capcom’s plans.

Speaking in a recent interview with Japanese outlet 4Gamer, when asked about the future of Ace Attorney, Hashimoto said (translation via Nintendo Everything), “At this time there is nothing to talk about, but we have gained a lot of knowledge about the RE Engine. I can say that the Ace Attorney series will not be stopping, so in that sense I think you can look forward to what is coming.”

How long it’ll be before Capcom is ready to unveil the next Ace Attorney game and what it will end up looking like remains to be seen, but clearly, series fans can take solace in the fact that, sooner or later, there will be a new Ace Attorney game.

Until then, you can look forward to Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy, which launches on January 25 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
