New Ace Attorney trailer is packed with Meiji Japan style

How are they going to un-Japan this one?

When we told you about the announcement of a new Ace Attorney 3DS game, Grand Turnabout Trial - The Adventures of Naruhodou Ryuunosuke, I mentioned that I thought it would be pretty difficult for Nintendo's localization team to rewrite the script in a way that would take the game out of its Japanese setting. This new one is set in Japan's Meiji era, which would make things especially tough. This is going to be so much more of a challenge than onigiri jelly donuts.

A new trailer from Capcom Japan for Naruhodou shows some lovely artwork that looks like it's right in line with their early 20th century target. Gorgeous stuff for sure. And I'm a sucker for games set in this time period.

This is a short one, but given that the game was just announced, you can be sure a juicier trailer with some real gameplay is in the works already.
