The Dai Gyakuten Saiban Takes Us Back To The Past!
The latest Gyakuten Saiban is finally announced with quite a bit of information following it. No, it doesn’t feature our favourite protagonist lawyer, but the protagonist is VERY closely related to him.
Meet Naruhodo Ryunosuke, the person who will be the ancestor of Naruhodo Ryuuichi! With the tagline saying “I will become a lawyer…definitely!”, he is definitely very passionate about the profession. Judging from his attire and this tagline, he is definitely much younger than Naruhodo and perhaps maybe in his high school. I’m interested to see what that katana he’s carrying can be used for.
Naruhodo Ryuuchi will have also an assistant, much like his descendent, who is named 御琴羽. I won’t attempt to romanize this or give the assistant any English equivalent yet, because we know how Gyakuten Saiban loves wordplay, so most likely than not, the name is not going to sound like what it seems. Not much is known about this assistant, not even the gender, though 羽 SEEMS like a female name, but I suppose it can be gender-neutral.
Since the game will be focusing on Naruhodo Ryuuichi’s ancestor, the game will of course be taking place in the past or more specifically the Meiji period.
The Gyakuten Saiban series has always been a little futuristic, in terms of forensic technology, especially after the fourth instalment. So it will definitely be pretty exciting to see what new and refreshing gameplay elements Takumi Shu can bring to this game! I’m actually looking forward to the court system as well and THE JUDGE. I wonder if it is still going to be the same old Judge (just you know, the Judge’s ancestor.)
Yes, Takumi Shu will once again be directing the game, along with producer Kojima Shintaro (E.X. Troopers and Monster Hunter Tri). The game will of course be for the Nintendo 3DS.
This game will most likely be a main feature of the next Nintendo Direct, so fans can look forward to that in the future!
