Chris Svensson Leaves Capcom

 By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - This... is a problem.

As I've written about previously on KoopaTV, Christian Svensson is critical to fans of Capcom's greatest franchise, Ace Attorney. Poor Mega Man is ALREADY dead, and without some OBJECTION, Ace Attorney could be too. Luckily, up to this point, the Ace Attorney diehard community has been in close contact with vocalizing their wishes with Capcom USA's Senior VP. Or should I write, Capcom's FORMER Senior VP.

Now, unlike, say, Elizabeth Brett and Electronic Arts, we actually know the circumstances surrounding this key public relations link between the fan community and the corporation. Sven left voluntarily, and has wanted to do so for a while because of the direction Capcom has been going in. There was a senior management reorganization within Capcom, so that's what happened.

Sven was apparently the only one advocating for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies to be released outside of Japan, giving us digital-download only forme. He's also been advocating in Capcom for Ace Attorney Investigations 2 to be localized over the past two years. Hey, fanbase. I don't care if it's digital only. I like having all of the physical stuff for my "collection" too, but I'd also rather have the damn game in English than nothing at all.

Some people say it's good riddance, and that Sven has actually not accomplished much of anything concrete, pacifying the fanbase for years on mere "maybes". Some even speculate that the new guy taking Sven's place will fill his shoes, and hey, maybe even do something.

We don't know what would've happened to the Ace Attorney franchise if Sven stayed, but let us hope it hasn't met its end yet.
