FAN ART OF THE DAY: Seanzy Adams –

The Great Ace Attorney is an adventure game in the Ace Attorney series, developed and published by Capcom. It was directed and produced by Shu Takumi and Shintaro Kojima, respectively. The game was released for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan in July 2015, with Android and iOS versions following in August 2017. The game carries on the courtroom style gameplay of previous installments in the Ace Attorney series, including the fully 3D environments and character models previously featured in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies. Like previous titles, the game is divided between investigation, in which players explore areas to gather evidence and testimonies, and courtroom battles, in which players must find contradictions in witness testimonies to find the truth behind a case. Similarly to Takumi’s previous game, Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, the player sometimes has to cross-examine multiple witnesses at the same time.

  1. I experimented some with the commentary audio this episode in an attempt to improve its quality. Mainly changes to the volume leveling, so that it is more even throughout. Does it sound better? Worse? Exactly the same? Let me know!

    Also, this case is awesome so far.

  2. Zieks: How impudent of me to shatter the Holy Grail in the Halls of Justice. I plead for your forgiveness. (stares back in his collection of grails within his large kitchen cabinet)

    Zieks: Yes, yes. Daddy needs to find a new one in the market again. Go back to sleep, my loves. (and then he slowly closes the cabinet, like a parent leaving their son's room in bedtime, staring back once more)

  3. Komaeda – Noisy
    Japanese Komaeda – Noisier
    British Komaeda – Noisiest

    I think we have just added a new comparative word into Nico's dictionary–

    Judge – Strict
    British Judge – Stricter
    Japanese Judge – Strictest

    …make that two

  4. 9:55 Those scales behind Judge Clause aren't just for show? It's also done after pressing a witness… Looks like a new way to punish pressing unnecessarily

    13:50 In before the "M" must be changed to "W" for Wumbo

    26:45 She smacks the book like Phoenix smacks the papers XD Adorable

  5. I find it funny because of what the third juror said he would have gotten a one way ticket to being kicked off the jury along with the first juror in America not to mention almost all of them have some conflicting interest with the accused and probably also wouldn't be allowed to be on the jury

  6. Maybe the old lady is a distant relative of Trucy since she was knitting those panties.

    The ability to throw Juror statements back at the others reminds me of the Copy Text feature in Danganronpa.

  7. You know what, Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice were really bad at giving us red herrings. Their trials only really had the relevant people, and maybe one other witness for you to grill, which made it extremely obvious who the killer was.

    This game has no qualms about throwing NINE new characters at you at once and saying "we might introduce some more, but we really have no idea who the culprit is".

  8. This is the first time I've seen this court system used in a AA game, and I've been super engaged watching it so far! After thinking about it a bit, I think I've boiled down what I like about it to 2 main reasons:

    1) In old AA games, most game play is done through witness testimony, which is always a dialogue between the defense and the witness, with the occasional interjections from the prosecutor. With the multi-witness system and especially the closing argument, you suddenly have a debate between a much bigger cast of characters. Instead of a back-and-forth between mostly 2 characters, you can now have a dispute between the jurors for example, which makes the script seem so much more dynamic. And considering the size of the cast, I was not expecting the jurors to have as much character and animations as they do, they're a lot of fun!

    2) Because most of the court game play in the old AA games was finding contradictions in witness testimony, virtually every witness had to be either lying, forgetful, or unreliable in some way to provide those contradictions. But now that we have multiple witnesses giving testimony on the same events, the game seems to have more room for legitimately honest and helpful witnesses, even if they don't necessarily have all the information. Hats off to Mr. Ladyfirst here! (but actually keep that hat on guy, it's driving me nuts)

  9. Half expecting a Spin off Ace Attorney game called Ace Attorney Symphony of the night where the vampire Htrowegde returns to London to kill his father Van Zieks and recover a missing Naruhodou

  10. I really like how Naruhodou and van Zieks seem to have both a unique animation for most actions as well as one based on the character they model.
    Naruhodou has both the “strong” slam and the “quiet” slam as Nico has put it — he has the animation where he sifts through papers, and the one where he taps it like Phoenix.
    van Zieks has a neutral pose where he stands normally, but with his arms crossed and his head tilted upwards, it’s almost exactly Edgeworth. And, of course, his first deskslam is just the single hand (like Edgeworth), and then…
    Well, van Zieks is van Zieks.

    It’s a nice little detail that establishes them as predecessors but also with their own identities.

  11. Is it just me, or does Van Zieks look so much like Miles Edgeworth that he could be his ancestor? He comes from Great Britain, and almost all of Edgeworth's English actor's voice lines were British. They both pretty much have the same hairstyle. And some of Van Zieks's poses look a lot like Edgeworth's.

  12. Nico – the English trials/judiciary are pretty much the same as the US – this game's mechanics and processes are just in-game weirdness but fun !
    So, no – sorry, we don't have floating flames to tip the scales of justice for veridicts. Plus, jurors (which should number 12) do not speak at all, except for the verdict.
    I know, I know – I'm disappointed too… Damn this boring reality !
    ( Oh & Btw, good English accent, in fact with so many in this game in real life you're soon gonna be adopting our accent in real life ! Wish I was there to see the moment you go to buy your groceries and thank the shopkeeper with a "Tally-Ho, cheers – you ol' bugger, byeee"

  13. Case 3 has been all sorts of fun. Having to learn about the case on the spot, the Jury and the Closing Argument (very Dangan Ronpa-like by the way), Van Zieks, etc.

    But what stood out to me was how utterly helpful Susato is. If she wasn't there to vouch for the Closing Argument, Ryuunosuke would've lost then and there. The way that she stood up to someone as intimidating as Van Zieks and the entire court of London and argue how the Closing Argument is in fact not an abolished practice was gutsy of her too.

    When she's in legal assistant mode, she's completely zoned into her duty, but she still has the same type of happy gestures that all the assistant girls have. I really like that, Susato might just be the best assistant in the entire series.

  14. I wonder, are there new juror every case or something.
    The fact that the jurors don't have names makes me think they're swapped out. That would be realistic.

    Also, it would be interesting to see how Nico handles that for the rest of this game & it's sequel.

  15. Gotta give kudos to the creators for thinking 6 steps ahead and creating a relationship between Naruhudo and Van Ziek.
    With the way how Van Ziek behaves during the trial is like Dracula. If you remember the stories of Dracula. You'll remember he has certain abilties. Dracula has the ability to charm or hypnotize his victims. Van Ziek persuaded or charmed Juror#6 by telling her that would convince her to vote guilty so that way he has all Jurors guilty vote. After a trial would end, Van ziek would hold a chalice or the holy grail and pour some kind of liquid that looked like blood into the cup and drink it like how Dracula would suck the blood of his victim. Dracula is a fearsome creature that every human feared and every monster serves under. So with Van Ziek given the title grim reaper. Every body in Britain fears him and he was probably able to scare everyone from doing a closing argument.
    With all the amazing powers that Dracula has he also have a crucial weakness and that weakness is holy power or the sun. Van Ziek keeps reminding Naruhudo and Susato they are from Japan also known as the Rising Sun. Naruhudo being the sun that cast a light in Britains court system and brought back the closing argument with the help of Susato.
    With this relationship between Van Ziek and Naruhudo. It's going to be a constant battle of Dracula versus the sun.

  16. Nico's Van Zeiks voice
    Me:its good…but I don't see why everyone is getting nose bleeds from it.
    Naruhodou's walking animation being smooth AF
