Capcom revealed a new Ace Attorney illustration featuring many characters from the series to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Unlike the artistic illustration revealed in October 2021, Kazuya Nuri’s new drawing gathered many characters from both the modern era and the past 19th century.

This illustration shows a gathering of characters from the entire Ace Attorney series. Characters from the original modern-era titles mostly fill the left side, while the other side features those from the 19th-century era of The Great Ace Attorney sub-series. Kay Faraday, who appears around the top left corner, is the only Ace Attorney Investigations debutant in this image.

The top right corner of this illustration also features Espella Cantabella, Zacharias Barnham, and Darklaw. They appeared as original characters in Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. Capcom made this title in collaboration with Level-5, which is why the latter’s copyright mark also appears at the bottom left corner.

Capcom has also opened pre-orders for physical releases of this illustration in Japan. It will come in two varieties. The high-quality framed art will have a price tag of 30,000 yen (~$260), and the smaller canvas art will be available at 8,500 yen (~$74). The company will close pre-orders on February 8, 2022, and release the finished products on April 21, 2022.

The Ace Attorney series started when Capcom released the inaugural title for Game Boy Advance in Japan in 2001. Most recently, the company released The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC simultaneously worldwide in July 2021.
