Capcom Announces ‘The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles’

by Sage Ashford

For everyone that felt there wasn’t enough Objection! in their video games, Capcom has confirmed that The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles are finally being brought over to America. The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles includes The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures and The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve, two games that originally released in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS as well as Android and iPhone.  The first game came out in 2015, and the sequel in 2017, but neither had been brought over to America. Set in the distant past of the Phoenix Wright series, The Ace Attorney Chronicles follows the adventures of Phoenix’s ancestor, Ryunosuke. More below:

“KURAE! The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles brings together two incredible adventures set a century before the events of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney! This special trailer features an introduction and closing statements from Shu Takumi – the director and scenario writer of the first three Ace Attorney games as well as both The Great Ace Attorney games – that Ace fans absolutely do not want to miss.

Never before released outside of Japan, both The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures and The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve follow the escapades of fledgling lawyer Ryunosuke Naruhodo, his trusty legal aide, Susato Mikotoba, the inimitable detective, Herlock Sholmes, young genius Iris Wilson, and a wide variety of weird and wonderful characters. Ten cases chock full of intriguing mysteries and courtroom mayhem await you, set against the backdrop of 19th century Japan and England.

Before Phoenix, there was Ryunosuke. Seems like being an ace attorney runs in the family after all.”

There’s also a message from series director, Shu Takumi:

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles will release for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC, July 27th.
