The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles Preorder Bonus
It’s more of an “early order bonus” than a preorder bonus. But! If you buy The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles before the end of August, you’ll get access to additional art and music “from the vaults.” These include the following:
- 25 additional pieces of art for the Gallery
- 29 additional pieces of music for the Auditorium
What is The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles?[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2021/04/21/the-great-ace-attorney-chronicles-western-announcement-trailer”]
As mentioned above, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is a collection of two previously Japan-exclusive Nintendo 3DS games. The first is 2015’s The Great Ace Attorney Adventures. The second is 2017’s The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve. Together, they contain 10 cases to solve, plus eight “slice-of-life episodes” called escapades.
The Great Ace Attorney games follow the adventures of Ryunosuke Naruhodo, an ancestor to Phoenix Wright, and take place in Victorian London and Meiji-era Japan. The gameplay is similar to previous games in the series, with investigations and trials, but players also have to convince individual members of the jury as they make their case in court. Capcom says there’s an overarching mystery that’s spread across the two games, which ought to make them fun to play in succession.
The collection also includes a Gallery feature, where you can find artwork for the games and an Auditorium where you can listen to the game’s soundtrack.[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=the-great-ace-attorney-chronicles-screenshots&captions=true”]
If you get stuck, you can turn on Story mode, which makes the game progress automatically, letting you off the hook about solving the puzzles and performing well in court. Dual audio tracks are also included, so you can choose between the English and Japanese audio.
Finally, the game will also be available in a digital Ace Attorney Turnabout Collection, which includes both The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, as well as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy.
