The Ace Attorney games are the only ones we know of that put players in the role of defense attorney. It helps that all your clients are innocent—it would be a little too weird defending real murderers.

Anyway, the plot has become a little twisty over the year, the suffice to say that Phoenix Wright himself is back in the defense attorney's seat for Ace Attorney 5

And now Capcom has confirmed to Pocket Gamer and Kotaku that the game will be headed stateside, saying they'll "have more news soon."

Have you stayed up to date with the series? Are you glad Ace Attorney 5 is headed to the US?
