The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles’ third case, “The Adventure of the Runaway Room,” launches you into a trial in London and introduces the ability to pit jurors against each other. Our The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles guide explains the case solutions, noting when you have to present evidence, press for more information, and which jurors to set up.

Our walkthrough is as spoiler-free as possible, meaning that we will not 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 third case’s four parts. “The Adventure of the Runaway Room” doesn’t really have a formal investigation, but the first part does involve chatting with an NPC before the case.
