Capcom is developing another entry in the mainline Ace Attorney series, according to a report from Famitsu. Ace Attorney 6, which is coming to Nintendo 3DS, is also making its way to the West, according to a tweet from the franchise's official Twitter account.

According to Famitsu, Ace Attorney 6 will include an option for quicker gameplay. Director Takeshi Yamazaki and producer Motohide Eshiro are both involved in the project. More details on the game are expected later this week.

The most recent entry in the main Ace Attorney series, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies, was released for Nintendo 3DS in 2013 and on iOS the following year. Read Polygon's review for more on that game. A spin-off set during Japan's Meiji period titled Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Bōken (aka The Great Ace Attorney) was released on 3DS in Japan this summer.

Ace Attorney 6 will be playable at this year's Tokyo Game Show. Polygon will be there to bring you the latest from the show. For now, take a look at Ace Attorney 6's Japanese logo.

Update: Capcom Japan launched the game's official website this week, offering a peek at the new game.
