Wall Street Journal reporter Takashi Mochizuki, via Japanese news site Jiji, reports that Capcom is planning multiple Switch titles for the next fiscal year, including Ace Attorney.
The statement came from Capcom chief operating officer Haruhiro Tsujimoto, who was asked about Switch development. Tsujimoto explained that they have already begun development of games for the system, including a game in the Ace Attorney series for fiscal year 2019. Capcom’s fiscal year, like most Japanese companies, starts on the first day of April and ends on the last day of March, so any new Switch titles would come after April, if you take Tsujimoto’s comments literally.
Capcom infamously said recently that getting new software out for a system’s first year is not possible, but Ace Attorney is traditionally not an extremely resource-intensive title. Assuming they plan to keep the 3D models from the 3DS/mobile games, it should still look quite nice on the Switch.

The series has been up and down lately, but I am always down for more portable lawyering.
