Though series fans may object to the original's continued absence from Western shelves.

At this year's Tokyo Game Show, Capcom announced that a sequel is in the works for 'Great Ace Attorney,' a 'Phoneix Wright' spinoff that takes place during the Japanese Meiji period (rougly equivalent to the English Victorian era).

The spinoff stars defense attorney Ryūnosuke Naruhodō, an ancestor of mainline series lead Phoenix Wright, and is set in both Meiji Japan and Victorian England. The sequel's announcement trailer also reveals the return of a steampunk-y Sherlock Holmes and his young assistant, the 10-year-old girl genius Iris Watson, both of whom were featured in the first game.

The original 'Great Ace Attorney' remains unreleased outside of Japan, but you can still catch the sequel's reveal trailer below.
