No objections here!
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!
