“When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” – Sherlock Holmes

As the year draws to a close, the Great Detective makes his grand debut in this tale. We here at Scarlet Study are proud to announce the release of Episode 2 in our Dai Gyakuten Saiban fan translation, The Great Ace Attorney: The Adventure of the Unbreakable Speckled Band! As before, we’ve also included a special teaser for the next episode.

Here’s a quick summary of the changes: a full release of Episode 2; the teaser for Episode 3; fixes for dozens of bugs and typos present in our initial release; and the removal of anti-piracy measures from the patch, which will now also allow eShop buyers to use the patch. Our staff spent countless hours polishing this release to ensure that it is as high-quality as possible – in fact, you may be surprised to hear that initial translation for this episode was completed quite some time ago. Since then, our tireless team of translators, proofreaders, and editors have rewritten the entire script to preserve quality and consistency. Above all, we strived to find the best balance that we could between accuracy and clarity.

We have high hopes that you will all enjoy this game as much as we’ve enjoyed bringing it to you. May we meet again in London for the release of Episode 3!

  1. Thank you guys from the bottom of my heart for creating this translation! I had the Japanese game cart sitting on my shelf for years, hoping to be able to play it one day. And thanks to you this day has finally arrived! What a wonderful time to be a Ace Attorney fan. Thank you! 🙂

  2. Thanks for translating Episode 1 and 2, I enjoyed them very much. I hope you folks also considering translating the DLC Episode also. 😀

  3. Question; can this be used with flash cards (R4i Gold, for example.)? If not right now, will it ever be available to download for those? Thanks!

    1. You need an eShop copy or the original game card. To play our translation, you need to install Custom Firmware (CFW) on your 3DS.

      The best guide for that is here:

      It will never work with a flash card, since we had to modify the ROM to translate it, which invalidates Nintendo’s digital signatures.
