Judging is completed - there's just a few technical issues to work through. Thank you very much for your patience!

This version's Watson is an eight-year-old girl.<br /><br />Both characters were silhouetted on the official site recently:<br /><br><br><strong>Quote:</strong><table border='0' cellspacing='0' cellpadding='3'><tr><td bgcolor='#EFEFEF'><font color='#000000' size='-2'><img src="http&#58;//www&#46;capcom&#46;co&#46;jp/new-gyakuten/images/index/images_all&#46;png"></font></td></tr></table><br><br /><br />For now, best to treat this as a rumor, but it does seem just crazy enough that Takumi would do it.<br /><br /><b>Update:</b> enough other sources are picking this up that we're calling it confirmed.

However, that doesn’t seem to mean the pair will be together at all times.<br /><br />Famitsu also introduces a new element called “Joint Reasoning.” As Naruhodou and Holmes work together to solve mysteries, players will point out where Holmes is taking his reasoning further than the truth in order to get to the bottom of what really happened.<br /><br />As far as the game’s flow goes, it will be similar to previous entries in that it follows detective and courtroom parts. This time, however, it will have both 3D characters and 3D backgrounds. And the actual depth of the background will be utilized (meaning, the character can actually go into the background).<br /><br />The Great Ace Attorney is due out for 3DS in Japan in 2015.</font></td></tr></table><br><br /><br /><b>Update 2:</b> First scan of Holmes (thanks Mijimaru):<br /><br />[spoiler=scan"><img src="https&#58;//pbs&#46;twimg&#46;com/media/BxKKsPvCYAABxXR&#46;jpg" alt="" />[/spoiler"><br /><br /><b>Update 3:</b> Some scans and screenshots <a href="http&#58;//kotaku&#46;com/first-look-at-sherlock-holmes-in-the-new-ace-attorney-1632889180/all" target="_blank">over at Kotaku</a>, including a look at Watson!<br /><br /><b>Update 4:</b> Full scans, and some new info:<br /><br />[list">[*">Ryuunosuke begins the game in Japan, where as a college student he’s involved in a certain case that puts him on the path to becoming a formal attorney. To better study law, he transfers to England along with Mikotoba, where he meets Holmes.[/*"><br />[*">Most of the story will take place in London, with Japan serving as the setting for Ryuunosuke’s first case.[/*"><br />[*">Court and investigation proceed in mostly the same way, but during investigations Ryuunosuke and Holmes will use “joint reasoning” - a system where, as Ryuunosuke, you must point out any inconsistencies in Holmes’ rapid-fire reasoning. (The example shown is Holmes accusing a witness of being a certain revolutionary.)[/*"><br />[*">Part of the reason they settled on 3D was to allow for a very dynamic camera to match Holmes’ high-speed thinking. Takumi jokes that Holmes really set the stage for the game![/*"><br />[*">Takumi has a deep love of the Sherlock Holmes stories, so he’s trying to respect the character. Holmes is described as falling somewhere between the “storybook Holmes” and a “real Holmes” - a man who focuses maybe too much on his investigations, but isn’t a bad person at heart.[/*"><br />[*">Ryuunosuke and Holmes’ meeting is a key point of the game.[/*">[/list"><br /><br />[spoiler=Scans"><img src="http&#58;//i&#46;imgur&#46;com/fVQCBLC&#46;jpg" alt="" /><br /><br /><img src="http&#58;//i&#46;imgur&#46;com/bo2ExTP&#46;jpg" alt="" /><br /><br /><img src="http&#58;//i&#46;imgur&#46;com/uMmrVVm&#46;jpg" alt="" />[/spoiler">
