The Great Ace Attorney just got a whole lot more interesting as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson (in the form of an eight year old female medical student, of course) join the cast of the latest Ace Attorney game.  

Set at the end of the Meiji period, players take on the role of Ryuunosuke Naruhodou, ancestor of Phoenix Wright.  Naruhodou will have the help of the master detective of English literature, but Holmes isn't the best at making careful deductions about the truth.  Using the new "Joint Reasoning" system, players must help Holmes see the light of day and bring criminals to justice.  Further information about the cast of The Great Ace Attorney can be found on the game's website, though we won't post it here to help those who are avoiding spoilers.

The Great Ace Attorney is planned for release in Japan some time in 2015 for the Nintendo 3DS.  Be sure to check out our updated gallery, too!
