The next entry in Capcom's Ace Attorney series takes the franchise back to Japan's Meiji period. Dai Gyakuten Saiben 2, or Great Ace Attorney 2, was announced on stage at Tokyo Game Show this weekend and will pick up shortly after where 2015's Great Ace Attorney: The Adventure of Ryūnosuke Naruhodō left off.

Capcom didn't provide much in the way of detail on Great Ace Attorney 2, other than to say it was in development.

The original Great Ace Attorney was set near the end of the 19th century and starred Ryūnosuke Naruhodō, an ancestor of Phoenix Wright, and Sherlock Holmes. The original Nintendo 3DS game was never confirmed for release in North America.
