Capcom has released a new trailer today for The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. They state that this trailer showcases classic Ace Attorney courtroom and investigation sequences in addition to some new gameplay experiences, “Summation Examination” and “Dance of Deduction.” You can check out the new trailer down below and read a little bit about this collection of games. Don’t forget that The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles will be launching for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Steam this upcoming July 27th, for both North America and Europe.
Players will assume the role of an aspiring Japanese attorney named Ryunosuke Naruhodo, an ancestor of the courtroom legend himself, Phoenix Wright. With the help of his legal aid Susato Mikatoba and London’s great detective Herlock Sholmes, Ryunosuke will solve the mysteries behind 10 high-stakes cases set in the late 19th century during Japan’s Meiji Period and England’s Victorian Era.
The series’ core gameplay involving Investigations and Courtroom Battles returns. During Investigations, players will visit the scene of the crime to gather evidence, converse with witnesses and search for clues. In a new addition to the series, Ryunosuke will team up with Sholmes to engage in a show-stopping “Dance of Deduction.” In these new sequences, players are tasked with correcting Sholmes’s outlandish conclusions to uncover the true facts of the case.
The fate of the accused rests in Ryunosuke’s hands during Courtroom Battles. In the courtroom, players must present evidence, question key witnesses and make their case to secure a “Not Guilty” verdict. New to the series is “Summation Examination,” in which players must point out the inconsistencies between jurors’ statements in order to move the case forward.
