    Happy New Year, fellow Ace Attorney fans!

    We'd like to kick off the new year by releasing a taste of what's to come with the translated Demo of The Great Ace Attorney - The Adventure of Ryuunosuke Naruhodou. We're sorry we couldn't finish Episode 1 in time for New Year's, but please enjoy this until it's ready. Let us know what you think.

    This free fan-translation uses the dialogue font of Dual Destinies, so you will need to own a version of it in order to play our patch. Team If would like to remind you that we DO NOT condone piracy - so please, please don't share a completed CIA with other people. We know the patcher is not very user-friendly yet, at the time of the release it was less then one day old. It will be much better in time for our Episode 1 release.

    Fellow fan-translators: we would absolutely love to see The Great Ace Attorney translated into many, many more languages, so fans all around the world can enjoy it. We're working on a program to take in "representatives" of other groups to work closely with our translators, so you can get all the nuances right in your native language. We're currently not sure when we can start with this program, because it shouldn't interfere with our releases of the English Episodes, so please be patient and don't just steal our work.

    Regarding voice-acting: we're not sure what we're going to do here, to be honest. We may offer an alternative patch with voice-acting in the future, but no promises yet. We'll see.

    It's no secret among Ace Attorney fans that our decision not to localize character names and re-locating the story to the US is controversial. We hope you will understand our decision (which was unanimous among our translators), after you've played Episode 1. We still tried to keep the typical "Ace Attorney feel" and we do try to localize jokes and references so they work in English, but the nature of the Game - in our humble opinion - makes white-washing the main cast impossible. Yes, we're aware of a completed translation script that does exactly that. As a team, we disagree with the direction it went, we believe the "liberties" it took to fit the Game into previous localisations were way to drastic, even for Ace Attorney standards. The resulting change of atmosphere and even character's personalities were simply too much for us to accept. You can form your own opinion on this matter by playing our take on the translation before condemning it.

    Remember - we're fans, too!

    -- Team If - DGS Division

    Most of you probably already know this, but you can install CFW on all 3DS firmwares up to 11.3 now: https://3ds.guide/ - if you updated to 11.4 (without A9LH), there's currently no way for you to play this patch!

    Install instructions - PLEASE READ THEM

    Last, but not least: we are still looking for a skilled reverse engineer (knowledge of ARM ASM and the 3DS in particular would be great) to help us figure out some of the remaining mysteries of the game. Other helping hands for inserting and proof-reading text can apply as well, but please note that we do not take testers.

    FAQs - PLEASE CHECK HERE FIRST BEFORE POSTING

    Our friends of LJT asked for permission to translate our DEMO to (European) Spanish and just finished with a little help from us:
    http://aceattorneyspain.foro.bz/t913-traduccion-the-great-ace-attorney#16701

    PS: Yes, "People", not "Profiles"...
    PPS: Yes, "Post Mortem" - it's not a complete autopsy and the Japanese word was different, too...

    Mods: I asked @Chary for permission to post the patch itself. It doesn't contain a single byte of copyrighted code. Only delta patches...

    Personally, I'll be doing what I did for Ace Attorney Investigations 2, which is to wait for the full thing to be completed before playing it, but congrats on getting a playable demo out and good luck with the rest of the translation!

    Nice, but I find the process to use the demo very complicated, I'm going to wait to a friend who is going to help me later. Good job everyone!

    You can find the demo on FreeShop but you're going to have to find it yourself since FreeShop got a DMCA takedown.

    Nice!

    Although, I won't be playing it immediately as of now (I already installed the cia anyway.) since it's 30mins away before New Years' in my timezone. GMT+8:00

    Oh hey. Happy New Year everyone!
