Capcom recently revealed their latest Ace Attorney game in the form of The Great Ace Attorney, which will take place in the Meiji period of Japan (1868 – 1912). As reported earlier, it will feature an ancestor of Phoenix Wright’s, who aims to become a lawyer. The game’s first trailer shares a glimpse of what it will be like.

The story of a miraculous encounter will be told.
The trailer also reveals the full title of the game as The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures of Ryuunosuke Naruhodo.
