KURAE! The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles brings together two incredible adventures set a century before the events of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney! This special trailer features an introduction and closing statements from Shu Takumi – the director and scenario writer of the first three Ace Attorney games as well as both The Great Ace Attorney games – that Ace fans absolutely do not want to miss. Never before released outside of Japan, both The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures and The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve follow the escapades of fledgling lawyer Ryunosuke Naruhodo, his trusty legal aide, Susato Mikotoba, the inimitable detective, Herlock Sholmes, young genius Iris Wilson, and a wide variety of weird and wonderful characters. Ten cases chock full of intriguing mysteries and courtroom mayhem await you, set against the backdrop of 19th century Japan and England. Before Phoenix, there was Ryunosuke. Seems like being an ace attorney runs in the family after all.

As stated in my Ace Attorney Trilogy review, I was never into the Visual Novel genre. Shu Takumi's Ace Attorney games changed that for me. It was honestly the most emotionally charged experience I've ever had. Not to exaggerate but everything about this duology is all condensed into one tightly packed story about Phoenix Wright's ancestor, Naruhodo-san.

The change in setting from Japanifornia (or wherever the original series was set) to London is a much needed addition, as it provides room for more realism in its history.

The courtroom dramas are improved to cater more than one person being questioned. The characters are memorable and their motives are sound, even the eccentric Herlock Sholmes. I'm giving this game a perfect score because it elevated the AA series to new levels, and I believed in Shu Takumi's talent.

If that bizarre collection of potential influences isn't enough to entice prospective detectives, perhaps it is sufficient to say that The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is, first and most importantly, a collection of stories that never wastes a player's time - and could, in fact, dramatically improve how they're spending it should they give it a chance.

There are many titles like The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles which never get localized for more fans to enjoy, and although it took six years, it’s safe to say it was worth waiting for. Perhaps the best part is regardless of one’s history with the series, anyone can give this entry a try as it’s a proper prequel that requires no prior knowledge in order to dive into right off the bat.

Ace Attorney as a whole feels like it’s in limbo now since we’re now four years past a brand new game being released in any territory, but hopefully this long-awaited localization is a sign of things to come. The Great Ace Attorney may not technically be a new game, but it’s still just as good as I would expect a brand new Ace Attorney to be after half a decade’s wait.
