Series creator Shu Takumi is at work on a brand-new Ace Attorney game that takes the series more than a century into the past.

According to details from the latest Famitsu (as translated by Siliconera), The Great Ace Attorney is set during Japan's Meiji period, which took place from 1868 - 1912. Players will assume the role of Ryunosuke Naruhodo, an ancestor of Phoenix Wright (whose last name is Naruhodo in Japanese).

The game is set to come to 3DS and will be directed by Takumi. Also involved with development is producer Shintaro Kojima, whose previous work includes the Monster Hunter series.

Valve officially announced Source 2 at GDC this year, and they're giving it away for free:

The value of a platform like the PC is how much it increases the productivity of those who use the platform. With Source 2, our focus is increasing creator productivity. Given how important user generated content is becoming, Source 2 is designed not for just the professional developer, but enabling gamers themselves to participate in the creation and development of their favorite games. We will be making Source 2 available for free to content developers. This combined with recent announcements by Epic and Unity will help continue the PCs dominance as the premiere content authoring platform.
