The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles’ second case, “The Adventure of the Unbreakable Speckled Band,” focuses more on investigation without a trial. The case serves as a bit of a tutorial on how to investigate and move around outside of trials, but it has some tricky parts nonetheless. Our Great Ace Attorney Chronicles guide will provide a spoiler-free walkthrough for case two.

Our walkthrough is as spoiler-free as possible, meaning that we won’t write out the specific dialogue or choices. Instead, we’ll number them by the order they appear and let you know what to present or press. We understand that the Ace Attorney games are fun mysteries, and we don’t want to ruin that experience for anyone who just needs a little bit of help.

The steps below are broken up by the second case’s three parts. The game will prompt you to save, which indicates that you’re moving to the next part.
