Capcom announces The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles

Although Capcom is best known in the West for its Horror series Resident Evil, they also have several other successful brands to their credit, including Ace Attorney. These are visual novels combined with an adventure from the legal environment. The first episode, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, was released in 2001, and this year the series celebrates its 20th anniversary. The developers have prepared a small surprise for us, even though they, unfortunately, missed a few months ago during the hacker attack on Capcom. However, we have now received official confirmation.

Capcom has announced The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, a collection of two games called The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures and The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve. The first mentioned title was released in 2015 and the second two years later, however, both games were released only in Japan at that time. That is changing now because the collection will also be released in the west, so of course, we will also get English subtitles and dubbing.

Both parts take place at the end of the 19th century and the main character is Ryunosuke Naruhodo, the ancestor of Phoenix Wright. We will look to Japan, but also to England. The content of the game remains the same as in classic works. First, we set out to investigate the crime scene and then we examine witnesses in court and look for contradictions to prove our client's innocence.

In these plays, moreover, the character of Sherlock Holmes appears, but due to licensing problems, it could not be under this name in the version for the Western market, and so the famous detective became Herlock Sholmes. Capcom must be told that this is a very interesting and funny way to avoid problems.

In addition to the content of the original games, the collection will also bring several bonuses. We can look forward to a few artwork, special videos, and 8 mini-episodes called Escapades. If you would like to enjoy only the story and are not tired of searching for evidence, the developers have added Story Mode, in which the game is basically played by itself.

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles will be released on July 27 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
