The Great Ace Attorney

Capcom has released the debut trailer for Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Ryuunosuke Naruhodou no Bouken (which we’ll refer to as The Great Ace Attorney for now), its newly announced Ace Attorney for 3DS.

The game is set in the 19th century Japan, otherwise known as the Meiji era, in what was the dawn of law. Serving as the new protagonist is Ryuunosuke Naruhodou (or Ryuunosuke Wright), an ancestor of Ryuuichi Naruhodou (Phoenix Wright). He is accompanied by Susato Mikotoba, who serves as his assistant.

Series creator Shu Takumi is directing the title, while Shintaro Kojima is producing.

Watch the trailer below. While it predominantly covers previously known information, it closes with a line mentioning that the protagonist will have a fateful meeting with “the founder,” although just who the founder is or what he founded remains unknown.
