Authored by Elly Vicieux
In an extensive group interview with 4gamer recently, some of Capcom’s lead developers have revealed the company’s plans for upcoming titles in the new year. Although a lot of the announcements were essentially teasers, some titles were more directly confirmed such as an upcoming Ace Attorney game. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies director Takeshi Tamazaki has confirmed that his team has already started working on an all new title for the Ace Attorney series.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 1-3 and Ghost Trick director, Shu Takumi, also confirmed that his team’s title will be announced in the new year. It remains unknown as to whether this upcoming title is a follow-up to Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney or a completely new IP.
Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara producer, Kenji Sugiura, has confirmed that yet another Capcom classic will be revived and rebooted by the end of 2014. Although the title itself remained unnamed, some speculate that Sugiura may have been referencing the upcoming release of the new Ghosts ‘n Goblins game.
Deep Down producer, Kazunori Sugiura also stated that Capcom is dedicated to reaffirming their presence in the fighting genre again, something that can be seen more noticeably with the upcoming release of Ultra Street Fighter IV next summer.
