Great Ace Attorney Chronicles Walkthrough and Court Answers


Hello, welcome to our Great Ace Attorney 2 guide. I’ve recorded my answers for others to view in case there is anybody struggling to get through the game.

We made this guide for the Japanese release of the game, but we’re updating the guide with English localizations so you can use it no problem if you’re playing in English.

These guides take a significant amount of time and effort to make, and anything that can be given is extremely appreciated. Even just a dollar from you can help, it adds up very quickly when many people contribute together.

If you prefer to watch videos, you can view a video walkthrough of this game on my YouTube channel, BAI GAMING, just search for Great Ace Attorney 2 on and feel free to view other walkthroughs on the channel too. 

The Great Ace Attorney 1 & 2 playlists can be found at: AND for the second game:

Also, I’ll point it out in this guide but you should always try to examine evidence whenever you have the opportunity. Sometimes you can present the correct evidence on the correct statement but still be penalized if you didn’t examine the evidence.

Examining the evidence will change the evidence by updating its description and changing it. To give a quick example, maybe you get a camera as evidence, if you examine it, turn it around and click it, you’ll get a photo in the camera. There’s a lot of evidence like this.

If you move to an area and a character is not appearing, it means you skipped one of the steps, go back to all other areas and make sure you’ve unlocked all dialogue options and have exhausted them and also double check you’ve examined the necessary parts in the room.

There are always areas to examine, but in general you only need to examine the area of the crime scene to proceed as explained in this guide, all other areas (like your own room) usually just have funny commentary on the setting.

*I’ve updated the guide to include the fan translation character names AND the official localized character names. The fan translation of the game only covered up to Episode 3, so I’ll have both names listed up to and including Episode 3, but only the official translation exists for Episode 4 and 5 so I’ll only use the official character names for those. (If you’re confused about what I mean, one example is that the fan translation used the name Vortex, whereas his name was officially localized to Stronghart.)

Since the game has been officially translated and localized, I recommend you purchase the regular copy of the game on the Nintendo Switch and not use the fan translation on the Nintendo 3DS. 

Our guide will have no story spoilers or commentary, only the court answers guide in a bullet format.
