Game company CAPCOM has recently released a brand-new gameplay trailer for upcoming video game The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles.
The new trailer focused more on the core gameplay and the new gameplay mechanics featured in the new game. It showcased the classic Ace Attorney courtroom and investigation sequences while delving into two new gameplay experiences. These two new gameplay mechanics are Summation Examination and Dance of Deduction.
The latest trailer also reveals the vibrant world of the game, captivating characters, and thrilling gameplay. Players will be taking on the role of the aspiring Japanese attorney named Ryunosuke Naruhodo. This is the ancestor of the courtroom legend Phoenix Wright. He is assisted by legal aid Susato Mikatoba and London’s great detective Herlock Sholmes. Together, they 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.
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles will be available in North America and Europe on July 27. The game will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam.
