It was revealed in the latest Famitsu that the famous detective Sherlock Holmes will be appearing in the latest Ace Attorney game, The Great Ace Attorney. This game features one of Phoenix Wright’s ancestors and takes place during the Meiji era in Japan. Sherlock Holmes, along with a little 8 year old girl named Iris Watson, will help out Ryuunosuke (it is worth noting that Phoenix’s Japanese name was Ryuuchi) in his investigations.

A new system introduced in this game is the “Joint Reasoning” which allows the player to prevent Sherlock from drifting too far from the truth. It was also revealed that the game will have both 3D environments and 3D models for the characters and that the dept of the backgrounds will be a part of the gameplay. For example, characters can now move in an out of the backgrounds.

The Great Ace Attorney will be released in the Nintendo 3DS in Japan in 2015. No word on a release outside of Japan yet.
