[UPDATE] Sherlock Holmes Investigates The Great Attorney

So, uh, Sherlock Holmes is in The Great Ace Attorney.

No, really.

You guys, I’m totally serious. This week’s Famitsu magazine ([UPDATE] now with scans) reveals that the world’s most famous detective will be appearing in Capcom’s upcoming 3DS title. And Watson? He’s now an eight-year old girl, so that’s cool? She’s still a full-blown doctor though–y’know, at the ripe old age of eight. Yeah, I don’t know what Shu Takumi is doing either.

During investigations, players will utilize a new feature called “Joint Reasoning” where the protagonist Ryuunosuke and Holmes collaboratively unravel mysteries and reach out to the–er, I mean, discover the truth.

Unlike past entries, The Great Ace Attorney will be entirely rendered in 3D. Characters, settings, backdrops, it’ll all be in the dazzling third dimension. Last year’s Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies was mostly comprised of 3D models and environments, but it sounds like its Meiji-era successor will take it a needed step further.

The Great Ace Attorney hits Japan sometime in 2015, and I’d wager my deerstalker cap that a western release will release shortly thereafter because doing so is elementary, my dear Capcom.
