Miles Edgeworth 2

It's beginning to look like Ace Attorney Investigations 2 might not make it to North America.

The rumors began circulating when Capcom vice president of strategic planning and business development Christian Svensson responded to a fan's question on a recent Ask Capcom video by saying, "Is Ace Attorney coming to the U.S.?? I assume that means Ace Attorney Investigations 2. The answer is 'no.' Sorry about that."

More recently, he posted in response to a fan on Capcom's forums to clarify the matter a bit further.

"The costs of localization are higher than the forecasted return. And no, it wouldn't sell more than Okamiden (which has already sold more than the first Investigations)," he wrote. "Could this content show up on some other platform somewhere down the line? Possibly, but there's nothing on that front for me to talk about. I realize there are fans who would like to have this and I'll be sure to explore ways that could happen viably in the future with our strategy and R&D teams but no promises."

Svensson also told Siliconera that there are "no plans for a Western release at this time for AAI2." But he also noted that "plans change all the time."

Svensson's response isn't a definitive "no," and fans should take heart knowing that even games like Yakuza 3 eventually made it over to western shores. But at this point, a western release for the second Miles Edgeworth game is looking more and more unlikely.
