Capcom has announced that The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures and The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve will be coming to the West, bundled as The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles.
Join Phoenix’s Wright’s ancestor, Ryunosuke Naruhodo, as he takes his first incredibly nervous steps into a courtroom in Meiji era Japan to defend his very first client: himself! Soon after, it may seem like you’ll be saying yoi tabi o to Ryunosuke as he leaves Nippon, but you’ll be joining him on his journey as he embarks on adventures that will take him overseas to England’s courts and back again.
Ten novel adventures await you, taking place about a century before the events of the original Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. As Ryunosuke travels from his home in Japan to foreign soil in Europe, he’ll make his case in court and defend the innocence of his clients. A different region – and a different time period – means a brand new cast of weird and wonderful people that will stand with, and against, Ryunosuke on his many escapades as well. Seems like being a magnet for peculiar characters runs in the family.
[…] While the faces, the places, and the era may be different, some things never change. You’ll still need to gather evidence at crime scenes and defend your client in court if you want to prove their innocence, and The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles offers classic gameplay with plenty of new improvements on both fronts!
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles introduces a brand new feature to the franchise for fans and newcomers who want to enjoy a more stress-free experience: Story Mode! Just as it says on the tin, this mode allows you to kick back and enjoy the story while the game effectively plays itself. No need to dig for evidence at crime scenes or find just the right piece of evidence in court; you can enjoy the game as if it were a visual novel or even a TV show. This mode is purely optional and can be toggled on or off whenever you wish during gameplay.
The collection also includes additional features:
- A gallery of art and illustrations, complete with commentary from the art director, and watch moving pictures (i.e. fully animated videos) from the story.
- Freely switch between English and Japanese audio
- Eight additional “Escapades” (mini-episodes separate from the main story), two “Special Trial” videos, thirteen video clips from “Ryunosuke Naruhodo’s Seven <_ of Sin”, and three alternate, optional costumes for The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles will released on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam on the 27th of July 2021.
