Capcom is bringing back Phoenix Wright for Ace Attorney 5 on Nintendo's 3DS handheld, the latest issue of Famitsu confirms (via Andriasang). Wright will be joined in the new game by his new partner, "a mysterious girl who wears yellow." The story picks up one year after the events of Ace Attorney 4, with an explosion rocking the courthouse in the first chapter.
It's not clear what Capcom's release plan is for Ace Attorney 5 -- I'd put the smart money on an eventual U.S. release -- but we'll be learning more soon. Tokyo Game Show attendees can look forward to a 15-minute playable demo on the show floor as well as a proper introduction for Wright's new partner. We'll hopefully hear some more about Capcom is looking to put this game out as well.
What we do know is that longtime series writer/director Shu Takumi isn't heavily involved with this one, as he's busy working on Professor Layton Vs. Ace Attorney, which is due for a 2012 release in Japan.
