The latest issue of Famitsu came with word of the latest Ace Attorney game, Naruhodou Ryuunosuke no Bouken, or Grand Turnabout Trial — The Adventures of Naruhodou Ryuunosuke. Shu Takumi, the original creator of the series, has returned to helm this entry, as teased in the Japanese entry of February’s Nintendo Direct.
The game has been confirmed to be a 3DS game set in the Meiji period of Japan’s history, between 1868 and 1912. The main character, Naruhodo Ryuunosuke, is Phoenix Wright’s ancestor. Naruhodo Ryuunosuke carries a sword with him (as was customary of upholders of the law in this era), has a strong sense of justice, but is prone to danger and blunders, much like his descendent.
Shu Takumi’s return to the mainline series has been waited upon by fans since the release of Apollo Justice. Takumi hasn’t worked on a mainline game since then, but did work on Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright. Takumi has often expressed interest in moving away from the Phoenix Wright character, so making the main hero Phoenix’s ancestor makes perfect sense.
Here is the full Famitsu page. More information will be added as more leaks.

What would an Italian Plumber do, if Shadow pulled a gun on you?
Oh well. We all have Monster Hunter Rise to distract ourselves now.
Not so wonderful any more, eh?
Goodbye to Super Mario, may he rest in pipes.
