The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles E3 and New Features Gameplay Trailers

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles

Capcom have released a new gameplay trailers for narrative mystery game The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles during their E3 Showcase.

As previously reported, The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures and The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve originally launched only in Japan on Nintendo 3DS; showing the adventures of Phoenix Wright’s ancestor; Ryunosuke Naruhodo. The game is set in Meji era Japan (or Nippon as it was known), when the western world first began to influence the nation; along with their legal system. Ryunosuke’s first client to defend; himself.

His adventures take him beyond Nippon, traveling to England and meeting eccentric detective Herlock Sholmes. Set nearly 100 years before the events of the first Ace Attorney game- defend your clients across 10 chapters.

Find and examine evidence in the crime scenes, use the Dance of Deduction with Sholmes to gain new insight into the clues, present them in court, and cry out Objection when the testimony has a contradiction.

Along with the new E3 trailer, the new features trailer shows off the Dance of Deductions made with Sholmes (and guiding him on the right path to what he has concluded about a character), and the Summation Examination; how court battles are viciously conducted in ye olde England.


You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.

Immerse yourself in a dramatic yet charming and witty world of evidence-gathering, deduction and courtroom battles with this double-pack of the adventures of rookie lawyer Ryunosuke.

Set in late 19th century Japan and England, each title features five murder-mystery episodes filled with all the drama, laughs, twists, and “turnabouts” you’ve come to expect from the legally labyrinthine legacy of Ace Attorney. Join Ryunosuke Naruhodo, ancestor of series mainstay Phoenix Wright, as he attempts to uncover the secrets behind an international criminal conspiracy and solve a hauntingly baffling cold case, while tackling a series of tricky trials along the way. Dozens of hours of attorney action awaits you!

In the course of each case, you’ll speak to witnesses, examine evidence and clues, and attempt to deduce the dastardly intent behind the crime before proceeding to the courtroom. In court, you will hear testimonies, cross-examine witnesses, and present evidence. And of course, it wouldn’t be an Ace Attorney game if you couldn’t shout “OBJECTION!” when you know you’ve got the facts and evidence needed to contradict the prosecution’s claims and prove your client’s innocence.

The game includes a convenient assistance feature in case you hit a dead end in your investigation, so even if this is your first Ace Attorney game, you can get into your amateur sleuthing adventures with ease! Will you be able to crack these clever cases? The game is afoot!

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles launches July 27th on Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4.
