So, if you're in possession of a Japanese 3DS and you're not playing Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2 (or even worse, you haven't played DGS1), your life is a lie and you should stop and think about what you've done. It's not too late. There's a handy "DGS1+2 pack" available too! As a small reminder, DGS1's main flaw was that it was setting up a lot of things and resolved absolutely nothing, leaving everything for the sequel. Now is the time, and we'll see how everything pans out. Let's just say DGS2 has a LOT on its plate if it wants to resolve everything in a satisfying way. The first case starts extremely strong but ends up a bit dull. The second case is already starting full steam and I love it. I also love that the game doesn't have any new gimmick since the first one (that I know of): that means the main and only selling point of the game is the writing. No gimmick like 5-6 to hide poor writing, "wacky" new characters designed by commitee, or flanderization of established characters: the game will live and die by how it resolves its lose ends, and nothing else will count. Fortunately, Takushu is in full control, and the 30 seconds introduction alone were enough to hook me into playing all night. THAT is how you pick up the threads where you left them, without wasting time apologizing for the flaws of DGS1 or soothing things up for new players. These 30 introductory seconds alread rank very high in my personal "best Takushu moment" ranking. This is, of course, an illustrated meitantei novel, so as a reader you need at the same time enough suspension of disbelief and empathy for the characters to keep going. And yeah, for the moment, Takushu's writing is really good. You can feel that he's relieved to not have to worry about the main GS anymore, and his statements about wanting to finish DGS with the second game are really reassuring. This guy is just the best. Did you know that he's got two cats now on top of Missile? Obviously Missile is still the cutest, but the cats are cute too. Wait, what was I saying. Ah, yes. Susato was already the best female character of the whole Gyakuten series in DGS1, and she still the best for the moment. I hope everything ends up well for her. That is all for now.
