Last year, during the Tokyo Game Show, Capcom announced a collaboration with A-1 Pictures to create an Ace Attorney anime. The series has now started in Japan, and as a special treat for fans around the world Crunchyroll will be streaming the episodes with subtitles for various different languages. There is even an option to have the localized English names instead of the Japanese originals, if you want a more authentic game experience.

You can check out the first episode here if you have a Crunchyroll subscription; those who want to view it for free will have to either wait till April 9th or register for a free trial.

If you watched the first episode and want to see more, make sure to check out the video below for a preview of episode 2:

The Ace Attorney anime is planned to run for around half a year, and will feature the stories of the first two games in the series: Ace Attorney and Justice for All.
