Capcom will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its cult visual novel with a symphonic concert broadcast from Tokyo.
The players of Ace Attorney know the pleasure of listening to the original soundtrack of these games which always knows how to hit where it is needed and when it is needed. Nothing is more satisfying than hearing the first notes of the theme “Cornered” after an OBJECTION! shouted by our spiky-haired protagonist.
Capcom knows the attachment of its fans to these few iconic notes, and will celebrate the anniversary of its investigation and trial visual novel license with a concert to honor its soundtrack which deserves a symphonic treatment.
Last year, a similar event was held to celebrate the remasters and the first Western release of the spin-offs. The Great Ace Attorney which feature Phoenix Wright’s ancestor, Ryunosuke Naruhodo.
A live broadcast event
If you are currently in Japan, wherever you are on May 7, you may have the chance to head to Bunkamura Orchard Hall in Shibuya to attend the concert in person, tickets for which are already on sale.
But if, as for us, Shibuya is not next door, know that it will be possible to attend the concert online via a livestream. This one will not be free and requires buying a virtual ticket to attend the performance live or in replay.
If you are a big fan of the series and want to bless your eardrums with symphonic orchestrations of your favorite music, know that it will still cost you the sum of 3500 yen either more or less 25 euro.
To make no further hesitation, Capcom already offers the list of music that will be performed there to find out if your favorites are there:
- Phoenix Wright – Objection!
- Apollo Justice – A New Era Begins!
- Ace Attorney Investigations Suite – A Grand Legacy
- Godot – The Fragrance of Darkness; That is Coffee
- Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy – Courtroom Suite
- Ace Attorney Series – Charmingly Captivating Suite
- Ace Attorney Series – Revolutions and Successors Suite
- The Great Ace Attorney Suite
- The Great Ace Attorney – Great Trials of Resolve Suite
- Trials and Tribulations – Ending
A short excerpt from last year’s concert also gives an idea of what Capcom has in store for this year’s concert.
And if concerts are not for you, but you want to (re) immerse yourself in these cult games, know that The Ace Attorney Collection and The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles are all available on PC, Switch, and PlayStation.
