About Ace Attorney

Ace Attorney is a franchise centered around a series of visual novel / adventure hybrid video games developed and published by Capcom. It began as a trilogy of comedic legal thrillers known as Gyakuten Saiban (逆転裁判, lit. "Turnabout Trial") created by Shu Takumi and released for Nintendo's Game Boy Advance handheld in Japan between 2001 and 2004. The trilogy was later ported to the Nintendo DS between 2005 and 2007 and released internationally. These games follow the exploits of a passionate rookie defense attorney named Phoenix Wright (Ryūichi Naruhodō in Japan) who fights for his clients in a courtroom setting loosely resembling that of the Japanese legal system, using investigative skills, cross-examinations and evidence. Subsequent games have branched off and altered the formula of the original trilogy, as well as starring different protagonists. Among these, two detective games collectively known as Ace Attorney Investigations (逆転検事 Gyakuten Kenji, lit. "Turnabout Prosecutor") place the player in the role of Phoenix Wright's rival, a genius prosecutor named Miles Edgeworth, as he investigates crime scenes using evidence collection, logic and arguments. Also in progress is a series taking place in Meiji-era Japan and Victorian London, called Dai Gyakuten Saiban (大逆転裁判, lit. "Great Turnabout Trial"), starring Ryūnosuke Naruhodō and a version of the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. As well, the original trilogy has been ported to Microsoft Windows, WiiWare, iOS and the Nintendo 3DS, and the original Gyakuten Saiban formula has continued with Apollo Justice and Athena Cykes as new recruits seven years after Phoenix Wright's original adventures.more

Sacred Urn 1.png

The Sacred Urn is the most precious treasure of Kurain Village. The people of the Fey clan believe that it contains the soul of Ami Fey, founder of the Fey clan and the inventor of the Kurain Channeling Technique, and that their spiritual powers will last as long as her soul remains inside. However, the urn has been broken at least three times, and it was evidence in two cases that Phoenix Wright took on. It is usually kept in the Winding Way at Fey Manor.more

All you have to do is tell us only what you saw. Otherwise the mean lady might yell at you again.

Can I quote you on that?
Yes, well, I have a question of my own actually. That bullet that the mysterious figure shot... what did it hit, exactly?
Yuri Cosmos
............It hit me.
S-So does that mean you're a-a-a-a gh-ghost?!
Simon Blackquill
I was wondering when you would realize it, Your Baldness. Director Cosmos is an authentic, bona fide ghost. He can even pass through walls.
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeek! <hides behind his bench>
