The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles Brings Order to the Court This Summer

No objections here!

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles


It’s been a while since we’ve had any new Ace Attorney content over here in the West, but it looks like that won’t be the case for much longer as Capcom has announced today that The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles will officially be releasing later this year.

Set in the late 19th century during Japan’s Meiji Period and England’s Victorian era, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles puts players in the shoes of Ryunosuke Nauhodo—an ancestor to Phoenix Wright—as they collect evidence, question key witnesses, and defend their clients in the courtroom across two different games: The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures, and The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve. Players will also be able to meet, and even team up with, plenty of unique characters, including the local ace detective Herlock Sholmes!

If two brand-new Ace Attorney titles isn’t enough to get you excited, don’t worry; Capcom was sure to sweeten the deal as much as they could with this upcoming release. In addition to the two aforementioned games, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles also comes with plenty of bonus content, including eight additional mini-episodes,  three alternate costumes that were previously released as DLC in Japan, plus Art Gallery and Auditorium modes.

Shu Takumi, the director of the original three games in the Ace Attorney franchise, personally announced the upcoming The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles global release 20 years after Ace Attorney’s Japanese debut back in 2001. “Available in English at last, players from around the world will finally be able to enjoy this game as well.”

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is slated to make its Western debut on July 27 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC. Are you looking forward to finally being able to play the Ace Attorney games that we originally missed out on? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
