For many Ace Attorney fans, they never believed this day would come. Leaked information last year indicated a release was planned for The Great Ace Attorney duology following those Capcom hacks, but until now, there was no formal confirmation.
Now, Capcom has revealed that after 6 long years, both games are finally being localised for Western release, launching on July 27th. Calling this The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, both previously Japan-exclusive 3DS games are being bundled into a single package, releasing on PS4, Switch, and PC via Steam.

After 6 Years, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles Is Finally Coming To The West On July 27th
For the unfamiliar, The Great Ace Attorney serves as a Victorian era prequel to the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney series. We'll be playing as Phoenix Wright’s ancestor Ryunosuke Naruhodo, working to exonerate clients.
Leaning into the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ryunosuke is joined by iconic characters like Herlock Sholmes (we're not kidding), alongside the daughter of Dr
Watson Wilson, Iris. There's also a few new faces here, such as Susato Mikotoba and Asōgi Kazuma.
At the same time, Capcom also advised that The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is getting a separate bundle with the previous Ace Attorney Trilogy. Granting access to most main entries in one package, all that's left to complete this set is the sequel trilogy.
