DO NOT CHECK THE ACE ATTORNEY WIKI IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. SPOILERS ARE RUNNING AMOK WITH NO PRIOR WARNING, YOU WILL GET IMMENSELY SPOILED IF YOU DO SO MUCH AS CHECK UNRELATED PAGES

--

DAI GYAKUTEN SAIBAN



Platform: 3DS, Android
Genre: Adventure Game
Director: Shu Takumi
Developer: Capcom​

PATCH

https://scarletstudy.gq/2019/03/30/3ds-only-full-game-release-android-slightly-delayed/


So, here are some things included in this (3DS!) release:
– A fully translated script, complete with all UI stuff and credits in English.
– A vast rewrite of episodes 1 and 2, with the number of ellipses cut down hard.
– Some miscellaneous fixes throughout the game.


In order to update your 3DS installation of The Great Ace Attorney, you’ll have to download the new patch files and the new patcher from the Github release (see the bottom of this post). That last part is important, so don’t skip it, please.


As for the Android release, we’ll be making a new, small post when that’s ready. But users who already have IrisMobile installed can just check it once in a while over the next few days, and it should let you know when there’s a new release out.


Here’s a list of things to be included in a future “fix all the things we messed up” release:
– Some missing minor features, like the 3DS’s manual feature.
– Corrections on whatever issues are sure to pop up after I submit this post.
– MORE removed ellipses, woo!

I just played the first hour of this after picking up physical copies of DGS1&2 Best Price on an Amazon Japan sale a few months back.

I’m really happy that I waited for the Case 1&2 improvements as this is perfect. It reads like a professional translation and I really just can’t wait to play more.

So, do I need a Japanese 3DS and copy of the game to make this work then?
You need a modded 3DS and physical copies of the games. Region for the system doesn’t matter.

Alternatively, you can wait for the final version of the Android patch releasing soon and buy the Japanese version off the google play store with the instructions on the Scarlet Study site. The Android version also works on PC via Bluestacks.

Man... If that's what it takes, I guess I'll have to eventually. Want to hear what people think of this localization, since the AAI2 one was quite good.

Screw Capcom.

Aaaand I bought DGS. My Japanese is still far from being usable to read games and such.

Hmmm I may be tempted to do this and then buy a copy of the game. AAI2 was great. It’s a shame capcom have a tendency Not to localise them. Is it relatively straight forward to do ?
Depending on your firmware, it may or may not be straight forward to do. In terms of ease, the Android version on android or PC (via Bluestacks) is your best bet.

What are the differences between the Android version and the 3DS version? And is the Android version landscape?

Can't wait to try the second one. Watched the english translation of the first on youtube and it was pretty good.

Awesome news! Does this work with the digital version of the game? I don't want to pay too much with shipping and stuff.

So I don't need the separate games, can I buy the 1+2 version? Or that has two cartridges?

I've been waiting for the full release so I'm excited to finally start it once the Android patch is out

I'm nearing the end of case 1 and it is quite good. I love how Naruhodo acts in trial

Did Nintendo ever give a reason as to why they never brought this over.
It's kinda weird.

The first one is like a prologue to the second game. I have a lot of qualms with the new systems, but I have to say the overall story is the best in the series.

This isn’t the best ace attorney game but I’m still glad that people get a chance to play it. AAI2 is my favourite ace attorney game though and the translation patch for it was really good too.

Really impressive that they managed to translate the entire game, that’s really not an easy process.

It’s a damn shame between I2 and both of these we have to rely on the fans to bring them over.
On one hand, at least we're getting them. And at least AAI2 had fantastic fan translation, so hopefully that's also the case with DGS.

But on the other hand, it's really stupid that it's come to this. Capcom continues to dilute the notoriety of the Ace Attorney franchise in the West, and it only makes things harder moving forward.

Had no idea there was a nearly complete fan translation for this! Excited to play it soon. How hard is it to hack a 2ds?

Nice to hear. I have the previous translation patch installed on my smartphone, but haven't felt like playing it for some reason. This sort of procrastination is good because eventually I'll have both games, which is basically the full story, available in one go and it'll be just like the vacation in 2011 when I beat JFA and T&T back to back :)

Capcom never gave a specific reason but given Capcom's history and conservative attitude we can figure it's due to a few factors:

-The two GAA games sold pretty terribly in Japan, and the series was already on a discouraging decline at that point, not even getting physical releases overseas for the two most recent titles. The recent Ace Attorney Trilogy remake is going to play a big part in whether the series continues or gets shelved for a while.
-While the character 'Sherlock Holmes' is not an issue for copyrights, some of his later stories are. Some of which are referenced in these games. But more than that, the Conan Estate does love to challenge even safe use of the characters. Even if it's an easy win for Capcom to beat the Estate in court, that still costs a not small amount to do.

But ultimately the simplest answer is probably the best: Capcom doesn't think it's worth it. We love the idea of some dramatic, Hollywood reason why a company doesn't do something we like such as "it's the Conan Estate's fault!" with a 'villain' but you have to remember that AAI2 wasn't localized either and there isn't a single thing offensive or copyright related in that game that could hurt it or Capcom. Capcom simply didn't think it was worth it financially to put together the localization team again to bring it over.

Probably too much work to try and make a game as Japanese as this appear like it's set in America like they do with the main games.
Ugh. I'm really exhausted of the "Eat your hamburgers, Apollo" meme. Took a funny a joke and ran it directly into the ground until it was a bloody smear.

The factual relationship between Japan and England at the time is a massive part of the story.

Awesome! I expect great things from an Ace Attorney localization, so I'm excited to see how this stacks up.

If they were to localize this, it's very doubtful that they'd need to consider setting the game in America. The reasons for no localization are definitely elsewhere.

Talking about Miles investigation 2, is there a fan translated patch too?

I am an idiot and I still have hope that they will realease a port for the switch with a translation but that is really good news, I loved the AAI2 fan translation and I hope this is as good, screw Capcom for making us AA fans suffer so much without a localization
