Huge news for Ace Attorney fans — both games from The Great Ace Attorney spin-offs, The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures and The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve, will finally make their way to the West. The surprise announcement was first revealed through a heartfelt video from the director and scenario writer of the first three Ace Attorney games and both The Great Ace Attorney games, Shu Takumi.
The official Capcom Unity blog also revealed more details on what the bundle, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, will include, and an announcement trailer that shows off more gameplay and story.
The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures and The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve follow the escapades of newbie lawyer Ryunosuke Naruhodo, his trusty legal aide, Susato Mikotoba, the inimitable detective, Herlock Sholmes, young genius Iris Wilson, and a wide variety of colorful supporting characters. Ten cases spread across both games will be included in Chronicles, set against the backdrop of 19th century Japan and England.
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles will also include tons of bonus content. There’s an art and illustrations gallery with commentary from the art director, fully animated videos from the story, both 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 Days of Sin,” and three alternate optional costumes for The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve.
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles will launch for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC on July 27. While Japan will be getting a physical version on both PS4 and Switch, the West will only see a physical version for Switch. According to the bonus features page for the game, that physical version will include a digital code instead of a cartridge.
