For the first time in the West, Console and PC Players will finally be able to get their hands on The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, which was originally only available In Japan. It is a bundle of two games( The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures and The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve) where you take on the role of Phoenix Wright’s ancestor, Ryunosuke Naruhodo. In typical Ace Attorney fashion, you will have to engage in courtroom escapades after gathering evidence to ensure that justice prevails.
Taking place in the late 19th century during Japan’s Meiji Period and England’s Victorian-era The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles follows courageous student Ryunosuke Naruhodo as he pursues justice, seeking evidence and testimonies to clear his client’s names. As players unravel the mysteries behind 10 gripping cases, they will encounter a cast of eccentric over-the-top characters– including the local ace detective Herlock Sholmes and famous novelist Natsume Sōseki.
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles introduces two new gameplay experiences that up the stake both in and out of the courtroom. While working with Sholmes, Ryunosuke will be able to engage in a “Dance of Deduction” to identify mistakes in the detective’s overboard logic and uncover new facts. While “Summation Examinations” will allow Ryunosuke to point out juror discrepancies in hopes of achieving a coveted “Not Guilty” verdict. With these new mechanics, prospective attorneys will experience investigations and courtroom spars like never before.
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles will also feature bonus content, including eight mini-episodes and three alternate costumes. The collection also provides an exclusive look at the artwork, music, and voice recordings of the games through the newly added Art Gallery and Auditorium.
The collection will be arriving on Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, and Steam on the 27th of July. A digital bundle featuring both The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy will also be available.
