Capcom will resurrect a classic IP, announce next Ace Attorney and fighting game in 2014


It looks like Capcom has big plans for 2014. Game designers from the Japanese publisher recently sat down with 4Gamer (via DualShockers) to discuss their development pipeline.

First up, Deep Down Producer Kazunori Sugiura confirmed that Capcom wants to get back into the fighting genre in a big way. In addition to the release of Ultra Street Fighter IV, the company wants to “reaffirm its presence in the fighting genre” in 2014.

After that, Kenji Kataoka, a Producer on Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara, said that the company plans to resurrect another classic franchise in 2014. Expect an official announcement “when the weather gets a bit warmer.” So… E3 2014… maybe?

Finally, Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies Director Takeshi Yamazaki has revealed that his team has begun work on the next game in the Ace Attorney series. It’s still very early in development, and it’s unknown if he’s referring to Ace Attorney 6 or another spinoff, but work has begun.

I guess we shouldn’t hold our breath for a new Mega Man announcement… yet.
