When is the release date of Ace Attorney Season 3? Would a season renewal be possible?
Ace Attorney, otherwise known as Gyakuten Saiban: Sono “Shinjitsu”, Igi Ari! in Japanese, is an anime series that pursues the comedy, drama, and mystery genre and it revolves around the police theme.
The anime series narrates the story of Ryuuichi Naruhodou who had a dream since he was a kid to become a defense attorney to protect the innocent. As he finally got to fulfill his long-awaited dream, he was presented with many cases that require him to think out of the box, and critically in order to solve the mind-boggling cases, so that his intention of saving the innocent can be favorably achieved.
The anime series Ace Attorney is an adaptation based on Capcom’s video game of the same name. The adaptation was first announced at the 2015 Tokyo Game Show during the stage presentation of Capcom’s Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice.
The first season of the anime series is animated by A-1 Pictures, the studio that has an amazing presence in the community as they have released several popular anime series such as Sword Art Online, Your Lie in April, and The Seven Deadly Sins. Meanwhile, the second season was animated by CloverWorks, which also has an outstanding presence due to its capability of implementing wonderful art styles to their anime releases such as The Promised Neverland, Bunny Girl Senpai, Darling in the FranXX, and Horimiya.
When will Ace Attorney Season 3 be released?
The first release of the anime series Ace Attorney was in a form of a prologue episode entitled Ace Attorney 6 Prologue on Mar 17, 2016. It was then followed by the release of the first season on Apr 2, 2016, and the second season on Oct 6, 2018. The former had run for 24 episodes before concluding on Sep 24 of the same year of its first release, while the latter had run for 23 episodes before concluding on Mar 30, 2019.
After the second season has come to an end, many of the fans are craving a sequel. So, when will Ace Attorney Season 3 be released?
As of now, we haven’t received any words from Capcom or any studio related to the anime series regarding Ace Attorney Season 3. We don’t know whether the anime series will get renewed or canceled.
Is Ace Attorney Season 3 possible?
By the time of writing, it is unlikely for us to receive Ace Attorney Season 3. The main reason is that the anime series was made purely as a marketing tool to boost the sales of the game. Also, both the first and the second season has already covered the entire game series of the original Phoenix Wright trilogy. The first season adapted the first two games in the series, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice for All, while the second season adapted Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials and Tribulations.
However, contrary to the first point, there is still hope for us to have Ace Attorney Season 3. It is always possible, and if it turns out that any studio is in the work of making Ace Attorney Season 3, it would be announced alongside Capcom’s new video game. That said, a third season would likely be possible if Capcom decided to release a new game to their franchise and it would be most likely that the new season will serve to promote that new game.
At this point, the chances of Ace Attorney Season 3 are 50/50, so all we can do for now is to wait for it to be officially announced or confirmed by Capcom, or by any studio who decided to pick up the anime for a season renewal.
