About this image

The lobby of the Gatewater Imperial Hotel was the would-be location of a fateful and sudden press conference by the Nickel Samurai, which would have taken place after the 2018 Hero of Heroes Grand Prix hosted by the hotel. The actor who played the Nickel Samurai, Matt Engarde, was due to appear in costume and reveal something to the awaiting crowd. However, it was actually a plan concocted by his rival, Juan Corrida, and Engarde's manager, Adrian Andrews, to destroy Engarde's reputation. The press conference was canceled when Corrida was murdered prior to the appointed time.

Aftermath of Corrida's murder[]

Main article: Farewell, My Turnabout

Phoenix Wright, Maya Fey, and Pearl Fey were attending the Grand Prix and had congregated in the lobby when Corrida's murder was discovered. Just as they were set to investigate, Maya was informed by a strange-looking bellboy that she had a telephone call. This caused her to leave Wright and Pearl and resulted in her kidnapping, with the ransom being Wright securing Engarde's acquittal for the murder.

Throughout the investigation, Wendy Oldbag regularly guarded this area, armed with her "laser gun", wearing a bizarre spacesuit uniform, and constantly hampering Wright's investigation.
