It has been a hot minute since my last “Ace Attorney” review has come out. I wanted to get this article out as soon as possible, but because of school, I couldn’t find the time to play this game. In case you missed the article where I mentioned why “Dai Gyakuten Saiban,” (“The Great Ace Attorney”) or simply “DGS,” won’t be localized any time soon, the answer is that there is no clear answer. Capcom has simply neglected to mention why this game failed to release outside of Japan, though many speculate that it is because of the copyright issues surrounding the Sherlock Holmes franchise. Thankfully “Scarlet Study,” a team of dedicated translators, took it upon themselves to not only translate the game’s text into English, but also the ingame graphics. “Scarlet Study” released two totally free patches for "DGS," one for Android devices, and the other for the Nintendo 3DS. Of course to legally use this patch, one must obtain a copy of "DGS" from either the Japanese Google Play Store or import a copy of the game from Japan. Because of this, most fans of “Ace Attorney” have neglected to play this game, outside of hardcore fans such as myself.
