It looks like The Great Ace Attorney series is on its way to PC. It’s different from the great Ace Attorney series, which was already released on PC in 2019. Let me explain.
Gematsu has discovered that The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles has been rated on PC by the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee. The Great Ace Attorney games are spin-offs from the Phoenix Wright detective games.
This is not a big surprise, as the existence of The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles was first revealed as a consequence of the Capcom data breach in November 2020. Chronicles would collect The Great Ace Attorney: The Adventure of Ryūnosuke Naruhodō and its sequel, The Resolve of Ryūnosuke Naruhodō, much like the Ace Attorney Trilogy, put together the first three games for PC.
The Great Ace Attorney game shifts the courtroom investigations to the main series to the beginning of the 20th century. They were released as Nintendo 3DS exclusively in 201
Unlike the fourth game, Apollo Justice, these spin-offs both feature Shu Takumi at the helm, who was the director and author of the original Phoenix Wright trilogy. At the same time, it adds juries to trials instead of just a single judge, a feature first introduced in the fourth Ace Attorney game.
Hopefully the package will be officially announced soon so we can all pretend to be surprised. In the meantime, check out Katharine and Matthew’s joint review of the Ace Attorney trilogy. They love these games so much that I feel like I’m writing this story just for them.
