CAPCOM began streaming the video it unveiled at Tokyo Game Show 2014 for Dai Gyakuten Saiban -Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Bōken- (Great Turnabout Trial: The Adventures of Ryūnosuke Naruhodō), the newest game in the Ace Attorney franchise. The promo stars Hiro Shimono (Tonari no Seki-kun, Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts) as Ryūnosuke, and Kana Hanazawa (Tonari no Seki-kun, Kobato.) as Susato, as well as Misaki Kuno (Galilei Donna, Selector Spread Wixoss) as Iris.

Ryūnosuke: Yes!
Text: Ryūnosuke Naruhodo - The "ancestor" of the hot, turnabout spirit.
Ryūnosuke: I will become a lawyer... Without a doubt.
Text: Susato Mikotoba - The Yamato Nadeshiko (perfect Japanese woman) judicial assistant.
Susato: If you need legal basis, please leave it to me.
Text: With hot hope in his heart, the youngster travels to the "world!"

Sherlock: Reasoning is an art of logic. Hit or miss, it doesn't matter.
Text: A doctor of medicine and A Literary Girl - Iris Watson
Iris: Oh, so my stories are even read in the Orient!
Text: Begin reasoning! The game is afoot!
Note on hand: Chocolate, cookie, biscuit, egg pudding
Sherlock: Now, let's begin the reasoning, Mr. Naruhodo. First, look here. There's a note written on her hand in small letters. It looks like Japanese. What does it say, Mr. Naruhodo?
Ryūnosuke: Chocolate, cookie, biscuit, egg pudding.
Sherlock: A sweet-toothed girl from Japan. Next, look here. It appears that she is hiding something in her sleeve. Looking at the lump it leaves, without a doubt, I can say that this is the code of law of the Great British Empire.
Ryūnosuke: You can tell that?
Sherlock: She loves laws, no matter what kind. Look! Her gaze lifted to the left! It's proof that her logical thinking is very strong.
Susato: I am quite famished.
Ryūnosuke: Um, she's thinking about sweets.
Sherlock: In conclusion, this girl's identity is... A Yamato Nadeshiko judicial assistant.
Ryūnosuke: well, that's how she was introduced to you just a few minutes ago...
