The official website for Japanese video game news magazine Famitsu posted a preview of its next issue on Tuesday, offering a glimpse of the new rival prosecutor (pictured right) from Dai Gyakuten Saiban -Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Bōken- (Great Turnabout Trial: The Adventures of Ryūnosuke Naruhodō), the newest game in the Ace Attorney franchise.
In the game, Phoenix's ancestor Ryūnosuke comes to London and meets Sherlock Holmes. The game 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.
The game is scheduled to be released in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS on July 9. Original franchise developer Shu Takumi is participating in the game as the director, and he emphasized that while this game is not part of the numbered Ace Attorney series, it is also not a side story. Shintaro Kojima will serve as producer of the game.
