Dai Gyakuten Saiban OST announced - 7/15, 2 CDs Bolt Storm Thu, 23 Apr 2015 22:03:40 EDT Always-eagle-eyed @hoso_boso spotted an Amazon listing for a <a href="http&#58;//www&#46;amazon&#46;co&#46;jp/dp/B00WKYT7M6/" target="_blank">2-CD Dai Gyakuten Saiban soundtrack</a>! What's really interesting is the release date - it's set to be released on July 15th, less than a week after the game. Depending on when a tracklist is announced, we could wind up getting minor spoilers from an OST before the game's even out!<br /><br /><b>Update:</b> Capcom's <a href="http&#58;//www&#46;capcom&#46;co&#46;jp/dai-gyakuten/topics/soundtrack&#46;html" target="_blank">official site</a> confirms the release will have 67 tracks composed by Yasumasa Kitagawa (composer for the <i>Ace Attorney</i> half of <i>Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney</i>) and Hiromitsu Maeba (new to the AA series, composer for <i>Sengoku Basara 4</i> and other titles.)

There will be two separate Capcom livestreams - the standard Capcom TV stream, which will be available on NicoNico and YouTube, and the MH4/DGS-exclusive channel, which will be available only on NicoNico. There will also be a NicoNico-based stream for the final stage show. Each day has a different URL, so with that in mind, here are the various streams to keep an eye on:<br /><br /><b>MH4 and DGS Channel: April 25th</b><br /><a href="http&#58;//live&#46;nicovideo&#46;jp/watch/lv215803825" target="_blank">NicoNico</a><br /><br /><b>Capcom TV: April 25th</b><br /><a href="http&#58;//live&#46;nicovideo&#46;jp/watch/lv215807703" target="_blank">NicoNico</a><br /><a href="https&#58;//www&#46;youtube&#46;com/watch?v=TTPUqK_sd54" target="_blank">YouTube</a><br /><br /><b>MH4 and DGS Channel: April 26th</b><br /><a href="http&#58;//live&#46;nicovideo&#46;jp/watch/lv215804068" target="_blank">NicoNico</a><br /><br /><b>Capcom TV: April 26th</b><br /><a href="http&#58;//live&#46;nicovideo&#46;jp/watch/lv215807805" target="_blank">NicoNico</a><br /><a href="https&#58;//www&#46;youtube&#46;com/watch?v=AhEyGkaxQfk" target="_blank">YouTube</a><br /><br /><b>NicoNico Super Game Area: April 26th</b><br /><a href="http&#58;//live&#46;nicovideo&#46;jp/watch/lv217597443" target="_blank">NicoNico</a><br /><br />Now, the schedule.

Bear with us while we translate, but in the meantime, click the box below to view:<br /><br />[spoiler=Scans"><img src="http&#58;//i&#46;imgur&#46;com/pxeUOuG&#46;png"><br /><img src="http&#58;//i&#46;imgur&#46;com/BORrHNs&#46;png"><br /><img src="http&#58;//i&#46;imgur&#46;com/IjlrH7u&#46;png"><br /><img src="http&#58;//i&#46;imgur&#46;com/Jnre0ng&#46;png">[/spoiler"><br />Summary of the info:<br /><br />[list"><br />[*">Baroque/Barock (we still don’t have a full transliteration) is described as a legendary English prosecutor said to never let a defendant escape. He’s returning to court after 5 years. Known as “The Death God of the Old Bailey”.[/*"><br />[*"> It took about a year to come up with the name of the prosecutor. At first it was “Prosecutor Rivaal”, but that was a bit… yeah. There is a proper name origin for the name, but Takumi finds it embarrassing to talk about. He has a different font for “objection” to convey the “English”-ness of him.[/*"><br />[*"> Jury Battle: Each of the jury members have their own ideas about the case and you can get the not guilty verdict by finding the contradictions in, and between their ideas (think PLvsPW’s testimony-vs-testimony mechanic). Ryuunosuke can walk around during the trial as he’s thinking. The last argument is where you have your last chance to convince the jury of your client’s innocence.[/*"><br />[*"> If all jury members decide on guilty, then it’s over, but as long as a majority votes not guilty after the closing argument, you win. Takumi had considered a multiple-ending game at first, but in the end, settled on this.[/*"><br />[*"> During trials, you can question multiple witnesses at once and yell “HANG ON!” if one is acting up, much like PLvsPW.[/*"><br />[*"> Special attention has been paid to camerawork, a sense of space and eye movements of the characters.[/*"><br />[*"> Case one is called “The Adventure of the Grand Departure.&quot; The prosecutor is Taketsuchi Auchi, Payne’s ancestor.[/*"><br />[*"> Case one’s waiter witness is named Satoru Hosonaga. A mysterious, elaborately-dressed woman is also shown without a name.[/*"><br />[*"> As DLC, a special episode focused on Ryuunosuke and Asougi will be available 7/9 to 7/19 for free. The episode is called “Randst Magazine Special Edition”, and though it’s called out as a ‘game’, it’s not clear if it’ll be a full case. Randst Magazine comes from Strand Magazine, where the original Holmes stories were published.[/*"><br />[*"> The game’s limited edition will include a 48-page artbook and 10-track CD.[/*">[/list"> Capcom TV April 1st summary Ash Wed, 01 Apr 2015 08:18:28 EDT Producer Kojima showed a little bit of the first trial (set in Japan). Ryuunosuke is suspected from a murder commited in a restaurant La Quantos (La Kuwantosu -&gt; La Gonna Eat) and there are two witnesses: the military man UZUMAKURU and the antiques dealer SONOHIGURASHI.<br /><br />* ASOUGI Kazuma's headband <i>always</i> dances in the wind (even if there's no wind in the courtroom...). He also grasps his sword occassionally to show his determination.<br />* Ryuunosuke's eyes move around nervously, which looks great. In fact, a lot of his facial expressions look great, like the moment when he first presents a piece of evidence.<br />* Kojima didn't show details of the case on purpose, and he stopped after the first piece of evidence.<br /><br />And then there's a bit about the escape-the-room game.<br /><br />But expect the important news to hit the street on April 2nd through Famitsu and updates to the official site. And in Japanese time, that's actually just a few hours away from now (Famitsu will sell digitally from 00:00 on, so details should come in quite soon).
