A parody of a famous character fits the AA verse better than the genuine article anyway.
I was gonna come in to say this. Herlock Sholmes fits the AA universe naming convention.

Other than that, I'm glad that we're finally getting these games. one of the good aspects of these titles is that they're directly worked by Shu Takumi, Ace Attorney's former Director (he left after Apollo Justice).

True, it does fit with the idea of Japanifornia in the Western release, but if they kept Holmes’ name as is, I personally think it’d be a nice throw back to this line.

Also the fact that the murder victim in Great Ace Attorney’s first case is John Watson. Unless they rename him too, it’s a missed opportunity. But we’ll see how it goes if/when the game comes out.

Really hoping we do get the Great Ace Attorney games here in the west, that would be awesome! I'd given up hope on those like I had Yakuza Kenzan and Yakuza Ishin.

Herlock Sholmes is officially what I'll call anything related to Sherlock Holmes from now on.

It's imminent. What I wonder is if they'll make a physical run or funs will have to buy the Japanese version that could come with English writing/voice.

I also wonder that. Since the HD Trilogy got stuck with digital only here in the west, I feel like there's a chance the same could definitely happen with these. I'll hold out hope for physical, but if push comes to shove I'll live with digital.

Physical on Switch in North America. Digital for PS4 / elsewhere.

Well, assuming that screenshot is legit, I’m disappointed. Not surprised with the name change, just disappointed. I guess this means John Watson will be Wayne Jottson or something like that now?

Iris will probably have to have her name changed too, since there’s already a character with that first name in the AA series. That, I can understand. Though the only thing that’d make Sherlock’s name change even more ridiculous is if the estate of Maurice LeBlanc decided to come and claim that name too. Probably not going to happen, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

Forgot to post this in here.

There's an official concert happening this weekend. It's a Japanese live stream but the English Capcom account has promoted it WITH the hashtag #TheGreatAceAttorney


It's happening folks. Years of waiting and waiting for this game will soon be over!!

I can't wait for HERLOCK SHOLMES to make out with Naruhodo-san.

We have our trailer. And.. it is indeed Herlock Sholmes😑 And Iris Watson is now Iris Wilson. While I really don’t like the name change, I get why they did it. Doesn’t mean I like it, but I get it. Though I am glad they kept the Japanese characters’ names intact. Maybe this’ll help marry the Japaniforia aspect of the original series English localisation with its Japanese roots.

This and Neo Twewy both come out about a week before my wedding. I want to buy both, but certainly don't think I'll have time for both :/ We'll see.

Anyway, this is super hype though, and a physical Switch release in North America! Hell yeah!

Honeymoons are overrated anyway ;)

Pre-orders went up digitally yesterday. Probably the fastest I've ever done a digital pre-order. Only $60, which is a great price for two games.
