Capcom began streaming a new video preview of its upcoming Dai Gyakuten Saiban -Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Bōken- (Great Turnabout Trial: The Adventures of Ryūnosuke Naruhodō) Nintendo 3DS game on Tuesday. In the video, game director Shu Takumi and producer Shintaro Kojima introduce the game's version of Sherlock Holmes.
In the game, Phoenix Wright'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.
The game is the newest entry in the Ace Attorney franchise, and it will ship for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan on July 9. The e-CAPCOM limited edition will include a case shaped like Sherlock Holmes' "private trunk" (briefcase), 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 special binding version (pictured above) will include an illustration collection and mini soundtrack CD. The e-CAPCOM and special binding editions will also be available together.
