Many fans thought this game released in the west is impossible but not anymore.
. I am one of those fans who wished Ace Attorney vs. Professor Layton have a western release. It is the second game in the series to have 3d graphics.
The cast of the earlier games are mostly Japanese. They westernized for the global release because they want the non anime crowd. For Instance, Ryūichi Naruhodō is the original name of Phoenix Wright. Reiji Mitsurugi is the original name of Miles Edgeworth. This is the first Ace Attorney game to have the least 4kids style censorship.
Having two characters who look visually and culturally very Japanese is hard for translators to Americanize.
The game’s timeline is in Meiji Period in Japan and Victorian-era England. The main character will be Ryunosuke Naruhodo. He is the ancestor of Phoenix Wright. Interestingly, a descendant who doesn’t remember him will continue to cross the same career path.
Susato Mikotoba will join him on his quest for Justice as the Great Ace attorney. She will be his aide just like Maya.
The only character who got “4kids censored” on this game is “Sherlock Holmes“. He will be renamed Herlock Holmes in the western release. He is not yet a Public domain character in the west.
It is the first time where the Japanese characters of Ace Attorney will remain Japanese. His first name is changed into Herlock because of Copyright.
He is most likely an ancestor to Phoenix’s mother side.
Aside from the Launching trailer, Capcom’s E3 presentation released this Features trailer that explains the game’s mechanics.
This game follows a Jury System just like Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney.
Dance of Deduction is the most hype new feature of this game.
The Player will be able to solve the case using Abductive reasoning. With the help of Ryuunosuke’s logic and Herlock’s investigations.
