It's hard to make good comparison between 3rd parties that don't even belong to the same dev/publisher at least, but given they all share the same genre (well, Layton debatably, but it's just as wordy, story driven and ridiculous in its twists), I think it's reasonable to throw all these 3 franchises on the same pit, and I simply don't see how DR outdoes either AA or Layton. Both have stronger ties to Nintendo with every mainline entry being available on its systems, Layton is particularly big in Europe (I believe it might even outsell AA and DR combined? not too sure on this), Ace Attorney is the most historic of the bunch and I'd imagine influenced VN more, and while they're all niche, I think it's safe to say Objection is probably the most iconic thing to come out of any of these franchises combined. At most, I'll give chunsoft that it hasn't been disconfirmed by our leakers so far, but unlike Capcom, I don't think that means much when they where never speculated around much.
