Capcom and Bunri have announced an educational collaboration featuring the Ace Attorney series. The companies will set up a special website accessible for a limited time. Although they have provided a link to the website, it will only be available from February 1 to April 30, 2022. [Thanks, Game Watch!]
When the site goes up, it will feature two educational quizzes aimed at Japanese junior high students. The first one will take loose inspirations from the Ace Attorney games’ cross-examinations. Students will have to find a contradictory statement from the witness testimony and then press the “Objection!” button.
In the other quiz, students will help Ryunosuke Naruhodo form correct English sentences during his stay in Britain. The site will provide several English words and students have to form a sentence that correctly translates to the given Japanese example. They’ll submit their answers with a “Take That!” button.
Capcom and Bunri will gradually add new questions to both quizzes every Tuesday and Friday from February 15 to March 18, 2022. After adding all questions, the contradiction quiz will have eight stages in total, while the English quiz will have thirty levels. Students who can correctly answer everything will receive commemorative smartphone backgrounds as a reward.
The Ace Attorney series had its 20th anniversary in 2021. Compilations of the first three Phoenix Wright games and the two Great Ace Attorney titles are available on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC. The Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is also on the Xbox One.
