Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2: Naruhodou Ryuunosuke no Kakugo (大逆転裁判２ -成歩堂龍ノ介の覺悟-; lit. "Great Turnabout Trial 2: The Resolve of Ryūnosuke Naruhodō") is an upcoming prequel game for the Ace Attorney series of text adventure video games. It is the eleventh installment overall in the series, and the sequel to Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Bōken. Like its predecessor, it is published by Capcom, produced by Motohide Eshiro, and directed by Shu Takumi, with Kazuya Nuri heading art and Yasumasa Kitagawa composing the soundtrack. The game was announced at Tokyo Game Show 2016 on September 17.
Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2 takes place shortly after the first game, near the the end of Japan's Meiji period. Although Susato Mikotoba returned to Japan in the first game, she ends up meeting Ryūnosuke Naruhodō again. It is implied in the announcement trailer that Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2 would tie up all the loose ends and lingering questions introduced in the previous game.
Three episodes from the main story have been revealed thus far. Like Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice, there will be two short non-canonical "what-if" scenarios available to those who pre-order the game.
- Two months after Susato Mikotoba's return to Japan following the events of The Adventure of the Unspeakable Story, one of her friends is put on trial for a murder that occurred at a beach house. She takes the defense's bench disguised as "Ryūtarō Naruhodō" (成歩堂 龍太郎).
- The Reminiscence of the Clouded Kokoro (吾輩と霧の夜の回想; lit. "The Memoir of the Foggy Night and I"): The day after his trial for the attempted murder of Viridian Green, Sōseki Natsume is accused of murder once again when a fellow lodger is fatally poisoned. Sherlock Holmes takes interest in the case due to Natsume's insistence that the apartment is cursed. Ryūnosuke Naruhodō takes the case to court against Prosecutor Barok van Zieks.
- During the London's World Fair, German scientist Benjamin Dobinbough is arrested when his experiment, a teleporter, ends up exploding, killing the man inside. Hart Vortex has Naruhodō to investigate.
