After spending months translating a Japanese Ace Attorney game on YouTube, two fans had their subtitled videos taken down by Capcom.
Each year, a ton of games are made and released in Japan. But many of them don’t come out in the rest of the world at the same time—and others never leave the island nation at all. So with that in mind, here are the best Japanese games of 2015 that have yet to come west.
Ever wanted to know what Ace Attorney would be like if it took place in 1901? Well, if you speak Japanese you can—and it’s awesome.
The new Ace Attorney, Dai Gyakuten Saiban, is full of the over-the-top courtroom drama you know and love. But outside of the courtroom, you have to prepare for the trials—mainly by proving how terrible a detective Sherlock Holmes is.
Dai Gyakuten Saiban, the latest game in the Ace Attorney series is set not in the near future but over 100 years in the past. The game never gives an exact year for its setting—but that doesn’t mean you can’t figure it out using a bit of real-world information.
Some of the most enjoyable parts of the Ace Attorney games are the crazy characters you encounter and their equally crazy animations. Here are a few of the best from the first chapter of the newest game in the series, Dai Gyakuten Saiban—in gif form.
With the release of Dai Gyakuten Saiban in Japan, there are now nine games in the Ace Attorney series. And one of the coolest things about the series is how they take the songs and remake them while still keeping a common musical theme from iteration to iteration.
