This was expected given the official site's planned update date, but Famitsu has made it official - DGS2 will be featured in this week's issue. Pictured in the preview above is a new piece of background art that seems to depict a certain tower that was under construction in DGS1...

The article promises new information, including a reference to a certain "cursed room for rent" (most likely Souseki's from DGS1-4 going by the pair of DGS1 screenshots provided). Two editors from Famitsu will also be providing their "joint reasoning" about what may happen in the game (e.g. speculation).

Update: Famitsu leaks are out (though not scans). It sounds like there's not a ton of news in the issue, but:
  • Takumi is the game's director (of course) and Eshiro is the producer.
  • The story will again take place in both England and Japan.
  • The World's Fair mentioned in DGS1 will play a key part in the story, as well as the aforementioned "cursed room for rent" and the scene of Susato visiting a grave seen in the trailers.
  • The mysteries from the first game will be resolved as well as new plot threads.
  • Development is at about 35%.

Update 2: Full scans below - be warned, they're huge:

Spoiler: Scans

The fulls scans show screens of Ryuunosuke, Susato, Holmes, and Gregson investigating an apartment where a case took place. Going by the decor, it appears to belong to the blonde-wigged actor who made a cameo in DGS1-4. The scans also allude to a letter from Susato to Ryuunosuke discussing a certain case that she had been hiding from him - and a new case that the letter sets off.

Update 3: Official art of Ryuunosuke and official summary from the DGS2 site:

Spoiler: Ryuunosuke

The end of the 19th century. The last and greatest World's Fair of the 19th century is due to open in the English capital, London. But beneath the surface of this symbol of industry, a shadowy web of connections beckons another case. A tremendous story linking Japan and England once again begins to move. The curtain rises on the second act of Ryuunosuke Naruhodou's grand courtroom drama!

Those spiral cathedral tops... That's Russia, isn't it? But at the same time, there is a Chinese style pagoda...

It's an event that was already mentioned in the first game. In fact, I remember it said it was scheduled to take place half a year later, so I guess that kinda hints at the timeframe of this game.

Well, it is the World Fair, so there's probably a Russian showcase and a Chinese showcase in it (and other countries).

That said, I'm curious what kind of case would involve the World Fair and the Crystal Tower. Assassination of an important political figure? Sabotage? Terrorism?

Oh boy, the Garrideb's flat. I bet those two mysterious men are gonna be involved in that case!

Looks like there's already leaks from Famitsu and... either the leak is incomplete, or there isn't really much in this week's issue.

3DS『大逆転裁判2 -成歩堂龍ノ介の覚悟-』
発売時期・価格未定


今作でも弁護士・成歩堂龍ノ介が19世紀末の日本と倫敦を舞台に奇怪な事件の真相を追求していく

もちろん、シャーロック・ホームズら強烈で魅力的なキャラクターも登場

今作では前作で語られなかった事件や謎に加え、新たなエピソードが紡がれていく

物語のカギとなる万国博覧会や”呪われた下宿”、そして龍ノ介のよきパートナー、御琴羽寿沙都の墓参りシーンが明らかに


開発状況35%


Development is 35% complete, so maybe not a July release. Then again, those dev. % Famitsu always give are confusing as hell.

Are we to take this to mean they're hoping for a trilogy after all? Whether or not DGS3 becomes a reality remains to be seen, but I'm sure Takumi has plenty to cover that can be pushed ahead into a third game.

Which already places GK3 in a state of limbo. Especially that Eshiro is producing for this game as well. Too bad, I was looking forward to what new investigative mechanics we could play with.

I imagine they have to close up all the plot threads from DGS because of the backlash, so this is probably gonna be the original plan for DGS2+3 in one game. I'd imagine that means less filler cases?

That doesn't rule out DGS3 though. He can still leave one plot thread hanging (like Morgan at the end of 2-2) and address it then. And Takumi has gone on record saying that he wishes he made 1-2 the finale of the first game, 1-4 the finale of the second, and 2-4 the finale of the third, so he can always just do what he did for the original trilogy and pull out an unplanned finale for the third game that brings everything together

My device can't zoom in and keep the quality so I can't definitively tell but
Spoiler:
do I see Ms. Garrideb and the stereoscope guy from case 5 in the jury picture, bottom right? I hope we see some more new jurors if we're getting old ones on top of it.

I think those are all just reused screenshots from the first game.

Eshiro as the producer of a Takumi game? Hmm. Interesting. This is actually the first time the two have really worked together on a game, even though Eshiro has produced tons of Ace Attorney titles. I wonder whether Kojima was forced to move away.

He worked on JfA though. And he's produced the DGS skits.

Post subject:  Re: Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2 in Famitsu 1/26

I don't say they have not worked even once, but never on a game. Eshiro was producer of the DS ports of AA2 and 3, but Takumi was busy working with Matsukawa on AA4 at the time. Takumi had nothing to do with those ports (Takumi wasn't even supposed to have anything to do with the port of the first game, if not for the insistence of the producers to add an extra DS episode).

And source on Eshiro working on DGS skits? Because you'd expect the producer of the game in question to be in charge of those skits (the Five-City tour skits were obviously made for Kojima to take along). Showing trailers and skits doesn't mean they are the persons behind them.

But Kojima was announced as the producer back in September, wasn't he? Maybe Eshiro is filling in until MHXX (that's he's producing) is out, or they have two producers (precisely because Kojima is busy with MHXX).

Kojima's Twitter profile doesn't mention DGS2 at all, if that's anything...

Magazine's out. Don't have time to generate scans at the moment, but it shows a run-down apartment filled with props. It looks like it belongs to a certain "mysterious man" who made a cameo appearance in DGS1-4.

Whichever one was wearing a blonde wig.

And on that notes, scans added to the first post! Sorry for the delay, but on the bright side, they're much higher-res than what we used to get.

Sorry, Bolt, that was a trick question.

It's been a while since I've last caught up on the many different plays by Shakespeare, but I think we can expect something out of Midsummer Night's Dream from maybe this case or another. Dunno how much Shakespeare will apply in the World Fair, but there ought to be a performance awaiting the world's audience.

And I can't help but feel that Holmes will come up with some odd conclusion about that room like, eh, satanic circus fun house and suggest that they just burn the place before the curse spreads.

Indeed. They're not just there for haunted attractions. Susato's a big fan of horror, though.

According to Takumi's headcanon, Phoenix was an aspiring Shakespeare thespian while he was studying the arts in university; so perhaps he got that after hearing about some tales about his ancestor :P

Now I'm awaiting Ryunosuke attempting to perform some Shakespeare at some point. It's probably going to end badly.

The picture scans look awesome! This should be a great game, especially DGS2 will be like a continuation of DGS1. Looking forward to finding out the answers in DGS2 to those unsolved mysteries that were left in DGS1!
