RUMOR - The reason why The Great Ace Attorney and its sequel won't be localized

Ace Attorney fans are quite upset that The Great Ace Attorney never got a release outside of Japan. While that wound is still festering, we now see that the sequel will most likely stay in Japan as well. Wondering why these games aren't getting localized? According to a new rumor, it all has to do with the games featuring Sherlock Holmes. It seems there's some dispute Capcom would have to deal with for the Sherlock Holmes brand outside of Japan, and Capcom just isn't willing to spend the time or money to fight it.
