posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official website for Dai Gyakuten Saiban -Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Bōken- (Great Turnabout Trial: The Adventures of Ryūnosuke Naruhodō), the newest game in the Ace Attorney franchise, revealed details about the game's limited-edition and regular releases on Monday. The game is slated to ship for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan on July 9.
The e-CAPCOM limited edition (pictured above) will include a case shaped like Sherlock Holmes' "private trunk" (briefcase). The version will also bundle mini Sherlock Holmes and Iris Watson plushes, a set of six postcards, an A5-size notebook with a The Randst Magazine design, a Holmes business card sticker, and Ryūnosuke Naruhodo's university pin. The e-CAPCOM limited edition will cost 9,300 yen (about US$78).
The game's special binding version (pictured above) will include an illustration collection and mini soundtrack CD for 7,300 yen (US$61). The e-CAPCOM and special binding editions will also be available together (pictured below) with one game disc for 10,800 yen (US$91). The game's regular edition without bonuses will cost 5,800 yen (US$49). People who preorder any version of the game from the e-CAPCOM online store will receive an original Nintendo 3DS custom theme download code.
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, Kana Hanazawa (Tonari no Seki-kun, Kobato.) as Susato, and Misaki Kuno (Galilei Donna, Selector Spread Wixoss) as Iris.
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 the game's producer.
