Dai Gyakuten Saiban Screens Reveal New Trial, Hero Must Defend Great Japanese Writer Natsume Soseki

A new batch of Dai Gyakuten Saiban: The Adventures of Naruhodou Ryuunosuke screenshots reveals the fourth episode of the game, in which protagonist Ryuunosuke must defend a new client: great Japanese novelist Natsume Soseki.

The request comes from the Chief Justice himself, as no other lawyer seems to want to defend the writer. Soseki is accused of attempted murder of a woman walking through a foggy London town. As he immediately emerged from that area, he was named a suspect on the spot.

Just as his real life counterpart, Soseki is very timid and shy. However, in the game he opens up to Ryuunosuke quickly due to their shared Japanese heritage. He also has a habit of expressing himself by using the four kanji making up his name in various idioms.

Check out the gallery of screenshots below.
