For those acquainted with Suda51’s previous work, the general tone of The 25th Ward will be very familiar. With a track record including, Killer Is Dead, Let It Die, and the No More Heroes Series, Suda51 excels at games focusing on colorful characters in absolutely bizarre situations. The 25th Ward certainly sticks to the usual Suda51 style of storytelling, with all of the good and bad that comes with that name.
The most notable deviation from previous works however, would be the gameplay. While most Suda15 titles focus on action to an extent, The 25th Ward is a visual novel. A visual novel is about exactly what you would expect from the title, as the genre primarily focuses on reading text boxes, while visual cues back up the scenes. Often times the game will switch to point and click segements that may seem somewhat familiar to the Ace Attorney series.
