April 21st, 2021After a 6 year wait, the original Dai Gyakuten Saiban game and its sequel have finally been announced for the West, in the form of The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. The package will be released on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Steam on July 27th. The collection includes both games along with some additional DLC. One mode completely new to the series is a story mode which eliminates the need for puzzle solving and evidence hunting.
You can watch a trailer for the games and find out new information here, and we will keep you updated on new information regarding the game as it is announced. Toatali
April 10th, 2021New details about the oft-rumoured localisation of the Great Ace Attorney games emerged at tonights Ace Attorney Orchestra Concert. This includes the name of Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2 as "The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve", the name of one of the defendants as Albert Harebrayne and the central new mechanic as "The Dance of Deduction".
An official announcement is expected to come soon. Toatali
February 13th, 2021After three months of biting our tongue and talking around certain illicitly-acquired leaks, it's good to finally have a more official source for things: Gematsu reports that The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles has been rated in Taiwan for PC, Switch, and PS4!
It's been a long, long road, and we're still waiting on an Official Official announcement, but it looks like after six long years, Ryunosuke and co. are finally heading west. Bolt Storm
November 16th, 2020People keeping up with gaming news may have seen recently that vast amounts of data were stolen from Capcom's servers for the purposes of ransoming the company. Some of that stolen data, which apparently includes highly sensitive information about Capcom's financial operations and employees also includes news about upcoming games, one of which appears to be a localised port of Dai Gyakuten Saiban 1 + 2 for the PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
We will not be posting any information or screenshots ourselves because of the way this information was gathered, but it can be found on the internet if needed. Most importantly, however, we would like to reiterate that these are leaks and so not confirmed. Plans at Capcom may easily have changed, or could change in response to this. It's not too long ago that we reported on seemingly reliable leaks from Kotaku which ended up not materialising, so we would urge as always that a heap of salt is always necessary for things like this.
[UPDATE: More information has come to light which makes the leaks seem much more solid. This is not to say anything is confirmed or plans haven't since changed, but the likelihood of the DGS ports has now greatly increased. Other AA related leaks have yet to be solidified in such a manner."> Toatali
June 2nd, 2020With apologies for the inexcusable delay, we'd like to share our support for the Black Lives Matter movement, and give some links where you can support the protests as well (bailproject.org and blacklivesmatter.com to start). Court Records aims to create a space where all of our users can be safe, including and especially users of color and black users. We apologize for any ways we've failed to do that in the past, and promise to do better in the future.
To that end, please let us know if there are things that need to improve.

July 17th, 2019If it seems all quiet on the Ace Attorney front, that's because it has been. However, there's still been a little trickle of news coming out of Japan.
- If you're a big fan of the lads from The Great Ace Attorney and are willing to pay a staggering price, you can now purchase 75 cm plushies of Ryu and Asogi from eCapcom in Japan.
- There was an Ace Attorney rock concert a couple of days ago, and you can see a snippet of rehearsal footage for that here (including some impressive accordion playing to make Weird Al proud).
- Don't forget that the 2019 orchestra concert CD comes out on the 24th - you can purchase it here or here, and thanks to WarChild on the forums, the track list seems to be

Hopefully we'll see some more news on the future of the Ace Attorney series some time this year, but in the meantime we'll just have to patiently wait and replay the Trilogy again. Toatali

because what else could get me to post news again than new AA music
After skipping a release for the 2018 concert, Capcom's announced a CD release of the Ace Attorney orchestra concert that ran earlier this year! In addition to including the orchestra tracks, it will include a recording of one special track where Ryuunosuke's voice actor Hiro Shimono acted out a certain DGS2 scene in time with the music.
While there isn't an official tracklist yet, a 4Gamer report on the concert listed the following tracks:
[list">[*">Ace Attorney 1-3 Suite[/*">
[*">Ace Attorney Investigations Reasoning and Pursuit Suite[/*">
[*">Apollo Justice ~ A New Chapter of Trials![/*">
[*">Ace Attorney 1-6 Beautiful Suite (Maya, Pearl, Trucy, Athena, Dahlia, and Rayfa's themes)[/*">
[*">Villains' Suite (villains' themes from 1-5, 2-4, 3-2, 3-3)[/*">
[*">Great Ace Attorney Suite, Continued 2019 (main character themes, incl. DGS2 songs)[/*">
[*">[DGS2 spoiler track performed with Shimono">[/*">
[*">Ace Attorney Revolution and Inheritance Suite (AA5/AA6 music, Apollo, Dhurke, Nahyuta's themes)[/*">
[*">Ace Attorney 3 ~ Ending[/*">
[*">Miles Edgeworth ~ Great Revival[/*">
[*">Steel Samurai's Theme [/*">[/list">
Additionally, the evening performance had an alternate DGS suite and an AA4 suite instead of the AA1-3 suite.
Since we couldn't hear last year's performance, it's good to know we'll at least get this year's! Bolt Storm
June 4th, 2019Although not strictly Ace Attorney related, at around this time of year a bunch of AA fans gather together to watch companies that aren't Capcom showcase their latest offerings, all while asking each other where all the lawyers are.
That's right, it's E3 time, and as always Court Records will be hosting live viewings of each of the major conferences. While we don't normally expect AA news at any of these except maybe Nintendo's, it's always a fun time chatting about the more general state of the gaming world with like-minded people, so please make sure to join us there.
Here's a list of timings for each of the E3 showings, but also make sure to follow us on twitter to see when we're going live. As always, the streams will be hosted on our cytube page.

May 19th, 2019This isn’t exactly news anymore, but Court-Records is looking to make the second major overhaul in its history, and we need your help to do it! We're currently working on a redo of C-R's main site that aims to not only give a fresher look to the game content and coverage you know and love, but also gives the fandom a place to share, search, and discuss their fanworks and theories.
We are looking for a web designer who has experience both in design and implementation. You would be looking at the backend components we have in place with our backend dev, Henke, and working with Cyreb on our frontend to come up with an improved design to represent them, and implementing that design with Henke providing the hooks to the backend.
Some questions and answers:
Q: What skills/experience will I need?
Q: What is the timetable for this project?
A: At present, we don't have a set date for this release. However, we will be doing our best to compartmentalize the work such that you'd only need to be taking part in the development of the site layout and wouldn't be bogged down by other elements (such as content generation.) Ideally, this will only be a few months on your part, but months turn into years pretty easily with this project.
Q: Didn't I see an ad like this about four years ago?
A: Cyreb’s still with us, but his new job limits how much he can do for us, so we figured we should get a new styler to keep him from exploding from overwork. If you applied last time and weren't selected, feel free to drop us a line again!
Q: Is this a paid position?
A: Court-Records runs on a bit of a shoestring budget, so we can't provide professional-level compensation; you'd be doing this for love of the series and some AA swag, like the rest of us. Sorry - we understand for a lot of people this is their job, and if you can't do the work for financial reasons we don't blame you. If you're cool working like this, you'll of course be credited on the site.
Q: Are there other ways I can help?
A: We're currently reviewing what needs to be done for the project, and may open up additional slots (copywriters, etc.) in the future. For now, though, we're focusing on getting a frontend dev first and foremost.
If you're interested, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org (no, there's no s in that) with examples of your work. General Luigi
May 19th, 2019In other news, there's a continent to the west of Europe. I'll let our Minister of Copywriting take it from here.
[quote="Lumos"">Oh look, we’re recruiting for copywriters again. Ah ha ha.
We’d love it if you guys would be willing to help out! You’d be writing up small things like episode descriptions and character profiles — hopefully not too involved. If there are people who would be willing to type up transcriptions of the games as well, I would probably pledge my allegiance to you forever.
If you’re interested, shoot us an email at email@example.com (There’s no “s” at the end), and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Croik's Current Priorities
The last of the GS1-3 sprites are going up. Before I move on to GS4 I'm taking a break from sprites to update the scripts.
