And here are full scans for Dai Gyakuten Saiban! In addition to giving us a decent look at the game’s visuals, there’s some new info as well:
- Ryuunosuke begins the game in Japan, where as a college student he’s involved in a certain case that puts him on the path to becoming a formal attorney. To better study law, he transfers to England along with Mikotoba, where he meets Holmes.
- Most of the story will take place in London, with Japan serving as the setting for Ryuunosuke’s first case.
- Court and investigation proceed in mostly the same way, but during investigations Ryuunosuke and Holmes will use “joint logic” - a system where, as Ryuunosuke, you must point out any inconsistencies in Holmes’ rapid-fire reasoning. (The example shown is Holmes accusing a witness of being a certain revolutionary.)
- Part of the reason they settled on 3D was to allow for a very dynamic camera to match Holmes’ high-speed thinking. Takumi jokes that Holmes really set the stage for the game!
- Takumi has a deep love of the Sherlock Holmes stories, so he’s trying to respect the character. Holmes is described as falling somewhere between the “storybook Holmes” and a “real Holmes” - a man who focuses maybe too much on his investigations, but isn’t a bad person at heart.
- Ryuunosuke and Holmes’ meeting is a key point of the game.
Here’s Sherlock Holmes in the Great Ace Attorney ⊟
The little girl is Capcom’s version of Watson, a pink-haired 8 year old. Don’t underestimate her, though — Iris Watson is a genius with a medical Ph.D., and the author of novel series The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.
The 3DS game is set to release in Japan next spring. Thanks to Kotaku for posting these scans and details from the latest issue of Famitsu.
Was at PAX this weekend, and someone yelled out OBJECTION at me in a familiar voice (while I was dressed as Apollo Justice). Turns out it was Orion Acaba, Apollo’s English VA!
The Dai Gyakuten Saiban site has seen an update in preparation for next week’s reveal, adding these two silhouetted characters!
Capcom has also announced that there will be a special stage show with director Shu Takumi and producer Shintaro Kojima on 9/20 and 9/21.
Looks like it’s finally time we get a good look at the game…!
the best part of apollo justice, giffed for your pleasure.
thanks to valant gramarye for making this possible.
I hope none of you object to this cover
