The Great Ace Attorney 2 - new gameplay info, developer interview provides new insight

- the masked man seen on the cover art and in the trailers is confirmed as a compatriot of van Zieks
- the masked man and van Zieks are attacked by a mysterious group
- despite the masked man's skill, he has no recollection of his name or past, and nobody has seen his face
- roughly 30 hours to finish the game
- Nuri was the one to come up with the World's Fair theme, since he was tired of always drawing small locked rooms as murder scenes.
- Thomas Romain (who also worked on DGS1) designed several aspects of the World's Fair due to his history with mecha designs.
- Romain was also a big help in designing various London areas because he came from Europe.
- Takumi wanted to write cases that could _only_ happen in 19th-century London.
- Takumi had the general plot for the series outlined since DGS1, but writing DGS2 still took longer than expected. He'd hoped to finish the scenario before proper development began but instead went back and forth with the development team.
- As before, Takumi wanted to make a game that felt distinct from the original trilogy but also lived up to it. When discussing the scenario with his team, he would often take their guesses on where the story would wind up as a kind of challenge and strive to make the plot even better than they thought.
- The team was a little surprised by how popular Asougi was, but this time they feel all the main characters get spotlights and development a bit more evenly.
- Takumi enjoys the Holmes stories by Robert L. Fish for showing a Holmes who can be a bit nonsensical. He also recommends the first batch of Doyle's Holmes stories.
- Takumi's never been to London (though he asked if the team could go for, uh, "research".) Nuri visited once as a student. Eshiro went several times while working on DmC: Devil May Cry.
- Takumi recommends Asougi's fans play the Asougi Asinine Attorney mini-case... and van Zieks' play the Holmes mini-case.
