The Great Ace Attorney is approaching its court date - oh alright, release date - in Japan, and Capcom is ramping up its marketing for the new 3DS entry. While we may be hoping for news of localisation, in the meantime we can enjoy the attention the game is getting in its homeland.
With a 19th Century setting and Sherlock Holmes appearing, it's not short of quirkiness, but some fresh videos promoting the title make sure to keep things lighthearted. Two rather loud but well known Japanese comedians have teamed up for the commercials below - Takeyama Takanori and Hironari Yamazaki; we rather like the results, reminding us a little of anarchic adverts we used to see worldwide in generations gone by.
If you prefer more conventional marketing, below is a TV ad followed by a three minute showcase of the game.
