Capcom revealed new information about The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles during their E3 2021 showcase on 14th June. The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is a set that consists of two Ace Attorney titles previously only released in Japan: The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures and its sequel The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve. Both titles focus on Ryunosuke Naruhodo, a defence attorney during the 19th century and the ancestor of famed videogame lawyer Phoenix Wright. They also serve as a prequel to the Ace Attorney Trilogy.
During Capcom’s presentation, viewers were given a first look at two gameplay features new to the Ace Attorney series: 'Dance of Deduction' and 'Summation Examination'. 'Dance of Deduction' revolves around famed detective Herlock Sholmes as he makes deductions about certain situations and people while the player, as Naruhodo, must deduct the truth out of Sholmes’ flawed statements while dramatically conversing with him in a series of poses. Meanwhile, 'Summation Examination' features the player trying to convince six jurors of their client’s innocence in court by choosing two contradicting jurors and pitting them against each other.
Capcom also announced that The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles will feature 10 new cases and eight new mini-escapades.
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles will be available for PS4, Steam, and Nintendo Switch on 27th July and is available for pre-order now.
