The Great Ace Attorney: First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies Saturday, September 13, 2014

In the latest installment of Capcom's much-beloved Ace Attorney series, we not only revisit the Meiji Period for the Phoenix Wright's ancestor aspiring ancestor Ryuunosuke Naruhodou as the new protagonist, but also an encounter with The Great Detective Sherlock Holmes himself in Victorian London. 

As far as finger-pointing antics are concerned, we here at The Daily Zombies have our fair share of coverage of the popular Ace Attorney video game series from Capcom. From his live-action adaptation by the notably prolific director Takashi Miike to the unlikely crossover with Level-5's Professor Hershel Layton himself in Professor Layton VS Gyakuten Saiban (レイトン教授 VS 逆転裁判), we were of the opinion that we have seen it all with the (overtly) enthusiastic defense attorney, Phoenix Wright. Until now.

Set to be released in Japan exclusively for Nintendo 3DS (as always) in 2015, the latest chapter of the much-beloved Ace Attorney video game series will be a prequel that will place the player back to the Meiji Period to play the role of the ancestor of Phoenix Wright, Ryuunosuke Naruhodou. And if you think that pretty much covers most of the novelty factor of this latest installment, you are just plain wrong. As the Great Detective himself will be showing up to meet the Great Ace Attorney. Yes, we are talking about Sherlock Holmes, and of course, his trusty sidekick, Iris Watson. 

Iris Watson? But of course, for this age of renewed interest in Sherlock Holmes thanks to Benedict Cumberbatch's epic portrayal of the Great Detective, it is rather fair for us to expect a little gender switch here. Okay, more than a little here.

Check out the trailer (without Sherlock Holmes) right below for the antics of the hot-blooded Great Ace Attorney in Meiji Period.

And here are the official images followed by some official descriptions.

Descriptions for protagonist Ryuunosuke Naruhodou, his assistant Susato Mikotoba, Sherlock Holmes and the young Iris Watson

Ryuunosuke Naruhodou - The protagonist. A student of the Imperial Yuumei University of the Empire of Japan. Taking advantage of a certain event, he aims at becoming an attorney. To learn the ways of the new justice system, he travels to the British Empire as a exchange student with the fire of justice burning in his chest.

Susato Mikotoba - A young girl who supports Ryuunosuke as a “Legal Assistant” because of certain circumstances. She enjoys reading foreign detective novels and is a virtuous woman of old Japan with big dreams of leadership.

Sherlock Holmes - The most famous detective in the world. With his excessively sharp powers of observation and inference, to seek the real truth, sometimes he must go to the opposite side of reality. “The Rampage of Ethics” has already begun. A miracle meeting between the great detective and a certan attorney sparks a major turnabout in the courts of London.

Iris Watson - A young girl who lives with Holmes. She is only eight-years-old, has a medical doctorate, and has penned the popular London novel series, “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.” Her power of reasoning is rumored to surpass that even of the great detective.

And here are the screenshots of the title.
