I don't see it as one, honestly. The main character is quite relatable to Apollo in the way that they're both beginners who start out unsure of where they stand in the law. However, he is also more relatable to Phoenix in that a friend of his ends up being the reason he becomes a DA at all.

And while the overall tone of AJ:AA is pretty grim, given the rise of the "DAoL", the tone set throughout DGS is one more of confusion. Aside from the confusion Holmes himself brings to others in general, Ryu himself comes off as a lot more indecisive than any of the rookie attorneys up to now. Not to mention, there's a lingering "darkness" over the usually chipper London that Holmes brings up, but we don't go into it. It's probably being saved for the sequel.

In any case, AJ was planned to be the start of its own trilogy, and yet even with Takumi's help, the team (or the next, for that matter) couldn't really find a way to let it continue. In this case, he couldn't find a way to squeeze everything in one game. I'd say from a developmental standpoint, they're on opposite ends.

Couple questions. Is this game worth getting? I have a Japanese 3DS (or about to have one) so I don't have region locks to worry about. Second, I don't know any Japanese, so will it be hard for me to play through?

There's a lot of unanswered questions left at the end, but otherwise it's a really good game. So if you really hate open endings and need closure, I'd wait until the sequel comes out, but otherwise it's definitely worth a buy.

Of course, considering it's basically entirely text-based, it'll probably be really tough if not impossible to play if you don't know Japanese.

I see. I'm not that worried about unanswered questions, but the Japanese part is probably what'll get me. Guess I'll wait on this then.

The street in London where Holmes and Watson live? Or do you perhaps mean in Japanese? It's bēkāgai (ベーカー街).

Is there any point in the game with an special bad ending/game over if you make a wrong choice or fail a cross examination?

What happens in the game overs for case 2, if it's investigation-only?

No bad endings in particular.

Usually, when Joint Reasoning fails, it's a standard game over, where you're immediately shut out from the case and given the option to "start the reasoning over" or "start from the very beginning". With Holmes' last Joint Reasoning segment, however, should you reach zero at a particular statement, he gets mad at you and demands that you return to that statement and present the right thing. (I'm not sure if your bar is reset to full or just back to one, though.) The line in question is:
Spoiler: Case 2

Without having played DGS this I agree with too, and probably will forever even if future games are insanely good.

I like to think the "virgin effect" as George Wiedman calls it, was in effect as I played PWAA first, and everything was original, whereas to my knowledge every sequel or spinoff has to some extent reused ideas or fallen into tropes.

AAI2 is actually one of the more original games in terms of feel but it still had a lot of baggage from past games and stuff like XY-Z incidents.

Has there been news of a sequel? Or did Takumi shoot himself in the foot and we might not get one?

In an interview, Takumi said DGS was going to be a trilogy, and this seems to be the case, since DGS1 has many plot holes and unanswered questions.

It's obvious just from playing the game that Takumi wants and intended a sequel, but the important thing now is what Capcom and the producers will allow.

After DGS came out they let it have its time to shine, but after giving it a couple of weeks Capcom started pumping out hype and info for AA6. Even if they've already approved DGS2, I think they're going to hold off announcing it until a more "appropriate" time, as they don't want to split excitement between AA6 and DGS2.

Figures. I thought we'd at least have something vague like Takumi saying he's hard at work on his "next project" (which everyone would know what it was)

I should know better than to discuss spoilers I know nothing about, but does DGS actually have plot holes? Too often, people confuse "plot-hole" with "open-ended".

A plot hole is continuity errors or contradicting events that breaks the narrative, not unexplained developments.

There's one visual goof in case 4, but no legit plot holes.

I haven't played the game either. But I heard many people complaining about the fact DGS had "plot holes" and an open ending. However, I think they meant "unanswered question" rather than actual "plot holes".

Just a yes/no answer please

Spoiler: Spoiler?
1. Does the English language ever come into play to provide a clue/evidence for a mystery?

2. If yes, is this something that could be translated/localized for a Western audience in a sensical way?

Thanks. One more thing: What are the murder methods? (Don't reveal the "true" answer if the method was fabricated)

For example, if I asked this for DD, the answer I want would be

Spoiler: DD
Case 1: Blunt trauma or explosion
Case 2: Stabbing
Case 3: Stabbing
Case 4: Stabbing
Case 5: Stabbing

The closest I can think of is case 2... but that's still Japanese and Russian, and the clues were also simply the fact that the things were written in those languages, rather than being a clue based on the content of the words or some sort of pun/dual meaning/whatever.

Spoiler:
But the names of the books didn't matter at all (plus they were only ever given in japanese/katakana, weren't they?), and someone's initials are the same in every language, aren't they (even if the characters you use to represent them may differ depending on the alphabet you use)?

I mean, there's nothing like Kindaichi Shounen's Bizarre Circus Murder Incident or Hyouka's titular mystery, which is what I imagine JM is asking about.

Considering that Capcom's marketing push is real big for AA6 right now, upon the game's launch period, I've been wondering how much they actually pushed for DGS? Did they spoil as much as they did for DD/AA6? I seem to recall DGS steathily slipping under the radar probably because it hadn't been announced for the west, but also because it was new and Capcom didn't see as big of a $$$ potential in it.

It slightly annoys me, as cool as some of the details are, to get so many things spoiled ahead of the release by the marketing for AA6, like Blackquill being a witness and then at the defense's bench etc.

DGS promotion was ridiculous. Details of chapter 4 were announced, and the final trailer even featured the name of the last case. Besides promotion involving revealing the contents, there were the usual promotion campaigns, and more. Exclusive promotion videos with city-specific skits written by Takumi. Lots of interviews with mystery writers and Takumi. It might not have been an entry in a main series, but they sure didn't pull any punches.

I'm not sure though how Capcom organizes its marketing (by which I mean specifically: to what extent the producers have anything to do with marketing). It might have something to with the fact AA5/6 have a different producer than DGS, it might. Same with the older games; I don't think that AA1DS or AA4's marketing under Matsukawa were noticably different than Eshiro or Kojima. Limited editions, commercials done by famous people, web content, most of the basics have always been the same.

Wow, that's pretty excessive, almost. It's a shame that they can't find interesting ways to sell the games without spoiling so much. I did like with the latest games how they often create false demo gameplay where the dialogue and scenario is just a bunch of random fluff though, because then they can showcase the game without spoiling anything except some of the cosmetic aspects.

Marketing can be ignored of course, but if you're excited for something it's really hard to do so, and in a sense I feel marketing should be part of the product, because it creates expectations and good marketing is designed to be that way. I think for this series the marketing has definitely gotten more spoilery since the 3DS era.

I do not know if I am posting correctly, but I've noticed something.
Spoiler:
In case 3, when first talking to Vortex, he mentions that it is quite difficult for the defendant to be found guilty. He says this around 12:04 in this video. The line he says is "However, in the unlikely chance should the defendant be found guilty...". In the trial, though, all the evidence points towards the defendant being guilty. The defendant is saved by the fabricated bloodstains. Did Vortex know there was going to be a fabrication mid-trial? Was he somehow part of this plot? This puts some suspicion on him. I want to know if this is explained at some other point in the game or if there is an explanation that does not make him suspicious.
