The Great Ace Attorney gets a debut trailer

Is set in early 20th century London.

The Great Ace Attorney, the 3DS Phoenix Wright prequel set in the early 20th century, has debuted its first gameplay footage.

It's all in Japanese, but there are some things we can still glean from it. We knew before that Sherlock Holmes and an eight-year-old female Watson would make an appearance and now we know that it's Phoenix's ancestor Ryunosuke Naruhodo who sails to London rather than Sherlock coming to Japan.

Sherlock also seems to deduce that a very obviously Japanese woman clad in a kimono is in fact Japanese. No s***, Sherlock. But I'm sure there's more to his deduction that I'm not grasping as my knowledge of Nihongo is Nihonlow.

The Great Ace Attorney is due out in Japan in 2015 and has not yet been announced for a western release.
