Complete Android Release for The Great Ace Attorney!

Complete Android Release for The Great Ace Attorney!

Hey boys and girls, we’re back with the mobile release. Sorry again for the delay; we’ve taken some measures to make sure this doesn’t happen again.

If you happen to already have IrisMobile and the previous Android release installed, just open IrisMobile and it should prompt you to update.
If you don’t have the Android release yet, check the Buying Guide link to get started; after you finish buying the game, a link to the patch itself is at the bottom of that page, along with further instructions. This DOES work on Android emulators for PC like BlueStacks! See the IrisMobile page for more info on that.

Some sidenotes and near-future plans

  • Yes, the plans for the English dub are on track. More info very soon™, in its own post.
  • There’s a big demand for retranslating our translation into other languages. We dig that, but we want the translation to stabilize before we open it up. This means waiting for feedback from our users and for the rewrite that started some time ago to finish. We’ll let you know when we’re ready.

But wait, there’s more!

The 3DS demo for The Great Ace Attorney 2 – The Resolve of Ryuunosuke Naruhodou is now released, as well. It requires the original Japanese demo to be installed. Unfortunately, there is no such demo for the Android version of the game. But if all goes well, it won’t be long before both 3DS and Android players have something to sink their teeth into, if you catch my drift.

By the way, we’re looking for an ARM reverse engineer or two to help us out with TGAA2 and AAI2 and an Android frontend developer who knows Xamarin. Contact us if you’re interested!

Hey boys and girls, it’s time for some pretty great news and some suboptimal news. First off, the pretty great news: it’s release time. The Great Ace Attorney is complete and we’re here to offer…the 3DS release. For now. This is the suboptimal news: due to some issues – unforeseen, as they often are – we’re not quite ready to toss out an Android release yet. But rest assured that we’ll have it out very soon; we just couldn’t hold in the 3DS release any longer because we’ve been buzzing about this for a while.


So, here are some things included in this (3DS!) release:
– A fully translated script, complete with all UI stuff and credits in English.
– A vast rewrite of episodes 1 and 2, with the number of ellipses cut down hard.
– Some miscellaneous fixes throughout the game.

In order to update your 3DS installation of The Great Ace Attorney, you’ll have to download the new patch files and the new patcher from the Github release (see the bottom of this post). That last part is important, so don’t skip it, please.

As for the Android release, we’ll be making a new, small post when that’s ready. But users who already have IrisMobile installed can just check it once in a while over the next few days, and it should let you know when there’s a new release out.

Here’s a list of things to be included in a future “fix all the things we messed up” release:
– Some missing minor features, like the 3DS’s manual feature.
– Corrections on whatever issues are sure to pop up after I submit this post.
– MORE removed ellipses, woo!

Script work in TGAA2 is moving at a breakneck pace compared to previous episodes, so unless someone important gets hit by a bus, hopefully me or someone else will be writing up another one of these lame release posts soon.

Big thanks to the following individuals, groups, and communities:
