It will be a while before we can count our thoughts The Great Ace Lawyer Chronicles, which comes out after a six-year wait on July 27th. But, thanks to this six-minute game trailer, we’re done port we say that we are incredibly excited to meet Ryunosuke Naruhodo, the nervous ancestor of Phoenix Wright, who opposes contradictions by saying “Yes!”, and his friend Herlock Sholmes, who is called Herlock Sholmes.
Of course, almost six minutes of in-game footage could ruin the story shots, so don’t worry unless you’re too annoyed about the minor’s revelation, or unless you have a brain like a sieve.
For those of you who want to stay pristine and clean for your first game of the game, here’s a spoiler-free summary of the trailer:
- Much like past Ace Attorney games, you’ll be penalized for wrong investigations, with five “lives” to lose
- The evidence you have in the Court Registry can be examined in detail to uncover evidence
- The “Present” and “Print” features fall within the TGAA’s cross-examinations
- Witnesses will often be on the stand at the same time as other witnesses
- Sometimes non-speaking witnesses will react to the testimony of others, and you can use a new feature, “Hunting,” to reveal their potential objections.
- You will expect to have the evidence examined by yourself, then the judge will ask you to present an exact proof of your claims indicating the areas of evidence.
- Because much of this game is set in England, there is a jury, and you have to convince them as the judge.
- “Press” and “Pursue” can also be used on jurors
- The inquiries are based on “Move,” “Examine,” “Present,” and “Converse,” an old replacement for the usual “Talk.”
- Herlock Sholmes will help you out on the occasion with his “Logic and Reasoning Show,” even if it’s not … healthy clear what it is too
- Susato, your assistant as Maya, will help you go through the facts to discover new information
There are quite a few beautiful historical details to note as well, from the dungeon-like prison cell that replaces the Detention Center to the plethora of British details about the characters and origins. A man is pictured brandishing a cone of french fries like a bouquet of flowers. We love it.
Interestingly, the entire trailer itself is presented on a movie screen, with rows of seats pointed at it. Maybe this is just a stylistic thing, but it could also imply that these scenes are pre-recorded and available to watch in-game. We just don’t know!
