The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles will finally bring two 3DS classics to the west July 27

No objections here

Prepare to don your Herlock Sholmes hat and re-open your basement detective agency. Capcom has announced that The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles will be bringing its old-school, period-sleuthing ways onto PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch this summer.

Previously spotted by the Taiwanese Game Rating Committee, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles collates two classic Nintendo 3DS releases: 2015’s The Great Ace Attorney Adventures and 2017’s The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve, both of which are being officially localized in English for the very first time, giving Ace Attorney fans the opportunity to plug that frustrating gap in their franchise resume.

Set in Japan’s Meiji period, which took place at the tail-end of the 19th century, The Great Ace Attorney titles transport the series’ mystery, investigation, and accusation process to a quaint, sepia-tinged world of yesteryear. Players step into the role of Ryunosuke Naruhodo, great ancestor of the famous Phoenix Wright, as he embarks on 10 globe-trotting cases. The period might be unfamiliar, but the series’ eccentric characters, intense courtroom battles, shifty witnesses and complex, dramatic cases are all present and correct. After all, justice is timeless.

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles launches July 27 on PS4, PC (via Steam), and Nintendo Switch, priced at $39.99. An “Ace Attorney Turnabout Collection” featuring both The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy will be available digitally for $59.99.
