After its announcement the other day, we now have a trailer and other new information on Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Ryuunosuke Naruhodou no Bouken (Big Ace Attorney: Ryuunosuke Wright's Adventure), the next entry in the Ace Attorney series.

The game will be set during the Meiji Era in the 19th century in Japan. The hero, Ryuunosuke Naruhodou (Ryuunosuke Wright), is an ancestor of our present-day objection-yelling attorney.

In an interview with Famitsu, series' creator Shu Takumi discussed the idea behind the game. He said, "While making games, I usually think 'to make what I currently think is the most fun thing in the best shape possible,' which is the major premise This might be a bit different from the rest of the series, but our concept this time around is about making a new Ace Attorney for fans and those new to the series [as well]."

Shintaro Kojima will be producing the game, and he had a little bit to say about how he will tackle the job. "I'd like to make an environment that would allow director Takumi to think of all kinds of ideas in full-swing. While it is an Ace Attorney game, it’ll also be a new project, so while we would naturally want Ace Attorney fans to find it interesting, I also believe that it will be important to show its charm off to those who’ve yet to play an Ace Attorney game."

Takumi also mentioned why he chose the Meiji Era as the setting for this next title. "A big part of it came from wanting to make it different from the main games. When we first started this project, we thought about all kinds of ways as to how we could make it different from the main games. At first, we thought about having civil trials, but that would have made it difficult to show a decisive victory or defeat. That would have made things about compensation instead of guilt and innocence, so in the end, we thought that [having them say] 'court established settlement!' would have been a bit too much," Takumi said with a laugh. "In the end, we kept the focus on the mystery part of it, and thought that simply changing the era would be good enough."
