Unfortunately, details are still pending on this (probably Japan-only) event, but the logo sure looks nice:
A "real escape game" is a type of live puzzle event, where participants work together to solve a mystery within a time limit, aided by clues left at the scene to be investigated. For more details, check this official site in English: http://realescapegame.com/whatisreg/
So... any chance this would actually hit San Fransisco some time? Reply || Read Comments By Rubia Ryu the Royal

DGS at Jump FestaJump Festa is currently running in Japan right now, and DGS is present both in playable demo and stage show format!
Most of the new info coming out of the show pertains to the game's first case. Let's start with some images, including our first look at the Japanese judge:
Spoiler: Case one characters
The solider witness' full name is Taizou Uzukumaru, while the old man is Sanmon Sonohigurashi. During the trial, Ryuunosuke yelled "SIR!" in place of "HOLD IT!" when pressing the witnesses, and even after consulting Asougi he wasn't able to come up with much in the way of useful questioning.
The case's defendant was also revealed (as Japanese-speakers will see in the above screenshots):
Spoiler: Case one premise
Ryuunosuke himself is on trial! The two witnesses testify to seeing a student who looked just like Ryuunosuke at the cafe where the murder took place. Details of the victim remains under wraps for the moment.
The playable demo featured an updated version of the Joint Reasoning demo from TGS, but attendees have been asked not to spoil the "Russian man"'s identity, so don't expect any new news there.
Finally, while no release date was announced, Takumi and producer Kojima stated that development is making significant progress, and that they hope to steadily provide new info in the new year. Hopefully a release isn't that far off! Reply || Read Comments By Bolt Storm

Dai Gyakuten Saiban: new Famitsu scans (new chararacters)Here's the latest scans from Famitsu magazine.
- Asougi Kazuma - Student of Imperial Capital Yuumei University (Teito Yuumei Daigaku, probably the precessor of Ivy University in GS3) and also an attorney. Close friend of Ryuunosuke. He hopes to improve the position of the defense attorney in Japan and plans to study in England to do that. He helps Ryuunosuke out in the first trial. Apparently the first trial is deemed 'a top secret trial' by the government.
- it's possible to cross-examine two people at the same time now.
- Mustache man's man Uzukmar (Uzukumaru, but I guess it's a German-esque name like for example Weimar).
- Autopsy report mentions someone dying at 2 PM. Cause of death: blood loss due to one gunshot. Bullet did not leave the body.
A bit too big, so I put the scans in spoiler quotes... but there's no spoilers, so nothing to worry: click away! Reply || Read Comments By L~A

The Writer Behind Ace Attorney's English Debut - Alex SmithAn interesting Interview with Alex Smith, the localiser for the first Ace Attorney game.
Something to highlight is that Phoenix's Name was initially put forward as "Roger Wright" with 'Phoenix' being low on the list of potential first names, but was picked by Capcom over 'Roger' as they liked the heroism of it. Reply || Read Comments By Mijumaru

Second Ace Attorney stage adaptation announced
Following up on 2013's Ace Attorney: Turnabout Spotlight, Capcom has announced that a second Ace Attorney play, Ace Attorney 2: Farewell, My Turnabout, will be performed from April 29th, 2015 through May 10th, 2015!
Despite the title, no information about the plot has been released yet, so we don't know if it's an adaptation of JFA's fourth case or not. The cast and additional information will be announced on December 18th, shortly before Dai Gyakuten Saiban is set to appear at Jump Festa. Reply || Read Comments By Bolt Storm
