The Great Ace Attorney games, a duo of legal-detective experiences situated in Victorian England and Meiji-era Japan, will be re-released globally this summer by Capcom. The game will be released on July 27 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC through Steam, and will include the initial Nintendo 3DS games (The Great Ace Attorney: The Adventure of Ryunosuke Naruhodo and The Great Ace Attorney 2: The Resolve of Ryunosuke Naruhodo).
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles Trailer and More Details
Players assume the position of a defense attorney in The game and are tasked with gathering facts, arguing in court, and ensuring a just verdict. The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles games were previously only available in Japan and feature newly recorded English voices. The Nintendo Switch, PlayStation®4 computer gaming system and Steam will all have the set for $39.99. The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy are available as a digital package for $59.99 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam.
In the trial, players will bring their legal skills to the test by gathering evidence, questioning key witnesses, and defending their clients. The first Ace Attorney game was published 20 years ago, and series director Shu Takumi says it’s a privilege to actually be able to release The Great Ace Attorney outside of Japan.
During the livestream, Takumi states, “Ace Attorney was first published in 2001, and amazingly this year is its 20th anniversary.” “I’m ecstatic to be able to declare The Great Ace Attorney’s global release at this critical juncture.”
We’re curious how well they’ve been ported from the 3DS to a single screen interface (I didn’t bother with the Trilogy because I still have the DS versions), but if done well and physically, I’ll be interested (opinion).
