The latest trailer gives fans a look at the vibrant world, fascinating characters and exciting gameplay that awaits them in The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. Players will take on the role of an aspiring Japanese lawyer named Ryunosuke Naruhodo, the ancestor of courtroom legend Phoenix Wright. With the help of his legal assistant Susato Mikatoba and London’s great detective Herlock Sholmes, Ryunosuke will unravel the mysteries behind 10 high-stakes cases set in the late 19th century, Japan’s Meiji Era and England’s Victorian Era.
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles Takes the Series to a New Era
The core gameplay of the series featuring Investigations and Courtroom Battles returns. During investigations, players will visit the crime scene to gather evidence, talk to witnesses and look for clues. In a new addition to the series, Ryunosuke will be teaming up with Sholmes to appear in a show-stopping “Dance of Deduction.”. In these new sequences, players are tasked with correcting Sholmes’ bizarre conclusions to reveal the truth of the case.
The fate of the accused rests in Ryunosuke’s hands during the Courtroom Wars. In the courtroom, players must present evidence, question key witnesses, and make their case to secure a “Not Guilty” verdict. New to the series is the “Summation Examination,” where players must point out inconsistencies between jurors’ statements to move the case forward. Capcom also released the first video of the “Case Preview” series on Twitter and other social media platforms today. Fans can expect new case previews highlighting a different case in The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles each week until the game’s release.
The game is available for pre-order today on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Steam. Players who purchase the game by 11:59pm BST/CEST on August 31, 2021 will receive the “From the Vaults” Early Purchase Bonus, a collection of 54 music tracks featuring never-before-released content.
