Bloomberg reporter Takashi Mochizuki recently shared some Capcom highlights on Twitter, with one, in particular, being quite standout. The company reportedly plans to release a currently unannounced game that will sell millions by March 2024.
No further details accompanied this revelation, but it has, of course, caused waves of speculation. The most common guess we agree with is that a new Monster Hunter entry will be announced and released soon.
Monster Hunter World and Monster Hunter Rise were both monumental successes, but their post-launch content has ceased, so it’s only natural to think a new big-budget entry will grace fans shortly. Other possibilities point to Resident Evil, though we’ll likely need to wait longer, seeing as Resident Evil 4 Remake is still relatively recent.
Since the claim is that Capcom is expecting this mystery game to sell “millions,” you should probably, unfortunately, cross Ace Attorney and Mega Man off that list. For as much cultural presence these two IPs have, they don’t sell nearly as well compared to Capcom’s heavy hitters.
You know, though, Ace Attorney 7 being a Devil May Cry-like action game would go pretty hard.
Regardless, let’s all hype responsibly.
Mochizuki’s tweet on the matter is below:
-Sword Canes Studio has 22 employees, mostly animators.
-plans to release one unannounced game, which would sell millions, by March next year

The package features the fourth, fifth, and sixth mainline entries of the Ace Attorney franchise; Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice, respectively.
Taking place seven years after Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials and Tribulations, Apollo Justice joins the fray as a new defense attorney who finds himself grappling with the Dark Age of the Law, causing seemingly irreparable corruption across court proceedings and verdicts. Alongside the ever-familiar Phoenix Wright and new allies, the cast tries to bring stability to their clients’ lives in the wake of this chaos, even if Apollo battles multiple demons of his past in the process.
It is a bit odd that this is titled as an Apollo trilogy seeing as two of the three games here have Phoenix’s name on the title, but I’m sure not complaining. Apollo’s my favorite character in the franchise, so seeing him get respect is neat.
