Sony Playstation is bringing the franchise of “murder mysteries and courtroom dramas” to the PS4. The game console is adding ‘The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles’ to their catalogue of video games.
According to a post on the Playstation Blog, the new addition will be a combination of two of the fan-favorite video games.
“Rewind the clock to the courtrooms at the turn of the 20th century with two amazing games in one,” they write. “This collection contains The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures and The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve, both being released for the first time outside of Japan as part of this collection. Set at the turn of the 20th century Japan and England, Chronicles introduces a robust cast of quirky and unusual characters, with tons of drama, comedy, and mystery. Get ready to crack some of the wildest legal cases in the world of fictional courtrooms.”
Previous Ace Attorney entries had Phoenix Wright as the legal-eagle, Chronicles will focus on his ancestor Ryunosuke Naruhodo.
“Much like previous games, Ryunosuke will also investigate criminal cases with his comrades, such as his legal assistant Susato Mikotoba, and overeager detective Herlock Sholmes,” the entry continues.
“While retaining the classic investigations and trials gameplay, new features have been added to the mix incorporating more variety to investigations and courtroom battles,” they add. “For example, the Dance of Deduction gameplay has you working together with Herlock Sholmes, identifying contradictions in the detective’s overeager (and usually incorrect) logical deductions to uncover new facts about the case.”
The game will feature two new features. The first is called Summation Examination, which will allow you to reconnect with the jury if they start to doubt the innocence of your client. The second is an optional “Story Mode” which allows you to watch the adventure. You’ll be able to toggle it on and off during gameplay.
‘The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles’ will also feature bonus content including alternate costumes and will be released July 27th.
