A brand new batch of screenshots for upcoming spin-off title Dai Gyakuten Saiban reveals the contents of the second episode, titled “The Companion and the Adventure of the Speckled Band.”
This new episode is based off one of the Sherlock Holmes short stories titled The Adventure of the Speckled Band. As such, it chronicles a bit of Holmes’s backstory in the game. The story takes place onboard a steamship during protagonist Ryuunosuke’s journey to England. Ryuunosuke is named a suspect in a crime that took place on the ship and branded a criminal before he even reaches the Empire.
During this episode, players must question passengers and gather evidence to clear his name. Sherlock Holmes himself happens to be on the train and, believing in Ryuunosuke’s innocence, decides to lend him his aid.
There are also two witnesses of note: 15 year-old Russian ballerina Nikomina and a senior crew-member of the steamship named Mitorof. You can view the gallery of screens posted just below.
