Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2: Naruhodou Ryuunosuke no Kakugo – Latest details
In the latest issue of Famitsu (released last week), Capcom shared some more details about Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2: Naruhodou Ryuunosuke no Kakugo. This time around, two new characters (who both happen to be coroners) are introduced:
- Courtney Sithe: head coroner at Scotland Yard (a position that was only recently created), who works at the forefront of forensic science. She may seem a bit blunt at first, but she takes her job pretty seriously, and consider it her own way of fighting criminals.
- Maria Goulloyne: Courtney Sithe’s daughter.
Naruhodou Ryuunosuke meets them during cases where more details investigation is in order (with fingerprints, etc.).
Capcom also shared details about a case taking place in a waxworks museum, and involving a “kidnapping”. In that museum, located in a remote corner of the Wolrd’s Fair, the works of the Rozaic family are on display.
The “kidnapping” bit refers to one of the statues depicting one of London’s major criminals (from the museum’s House of Horrors), which suddenly went missing. Sherlock Holmes is quite intrigued by Rozaic referring to that disappearance as a kidnapping, which eventually leds to a bout of Joint Reasoning.
At the trial, Rozaic reveals that whoever stole the statue has demanded a real fortune for its safe return, and that the statues are all made by taking a cast of the person’s directly.
Finally, Capcom shared some details about the two Asinine Attorney mini-cases, offered as pre-order bonus:
- Case 1: Kazuma Asougi takes on a case as part of his preparations for studying abroad. His opponent is no less than Taketsuchi Auchi (Winston Payne’s ancestor);
- Case 2: Iris Watson is arrested, and Sherlock Holmes steps in to defend her in court, with Naruhodou Ryuunosuke as his assistant.
