What is Anime: Ace Attorney about?
Ace Attorney, the first season prepared by the Japanese A-1 Pictures studio and the second season by the Japanese animation studio CloverWorks, is based on the first 3 games of the video game developer Capcom’s series of the same name.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice for All
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials and Tribulations
Based on these 3 games, the anime series takes place in an alternate world where decisions are made in 3 days in the first degree courts. Our main character, Phonix Wright, is a rookie defense lawyer, while her mentor Mia Fey is murdered. Maya who is Phoenix bestfriends her younger sister, is a spirit medium-in-training who can channel the spirits of the dead. With the support of Maya difficult times await Phoenix, who defends his clients in lawsuits at Law Offices Wright & Co., especially when his childhood friend Miles Edgeworth stands in front of him.
Is season 3 confirmed by the producers when will it be?
The anime series, which was written by Atsuhiro Tomioka, who also wrote Pokémon Generations, said goodbye to the 23rd episode of season 2, Bridge to the Turnabout – Last Trial, in March 2019. Since this date, no approval has yet been received by the producers for the 3rd season of Ace Attorney anime series.
There is no way to know there will whether be a third season of the anime series at this stage. When we review all the known things about the series, we see that it is not very possible for the 3rd season to come out. The anime series was mainly created as a marketing tool, therefore its first two seasons covered the entirety of the original Phoenix Wright trilogy, this period was important to promoting and marketing.
At this point, possibility of 3rd season seem to be linked to the series launching a new game. If there is a need for re-marketing with a new game, maybe we can see the third season of the series. Still a remote possibility. Unfortunately, there is no news of a new game at the moment, in this case, it is not possible to see a possible new season of the series before the 2021 4th quarter.
