Revisualization is a plot device used in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice. It occurs at a critical point in a trial, when the protagonist is backed into a corner and has to review his or her thinking to reach a decisive conclusion that turns the case on its head. Thematically, it is similar to the logic epiphanies in Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth and Gyakuten Kenji 2. Mechanically, it is essentially a series of multiple choice questions about items and evidence connected to the case. There are unique responses to every answer, including the incorrect ones, and no penalty is incurred for choosing incorrectly. The music that plays when Revisualization is used is titled "Thought Route ~ Synaptic Resonance" (カンガエルート ~シナプスの共鳴).
In the Japanese version of the game, this process is called "kangae ruuto" (カンガエルート, lit. "Thought Route").
- The Cosmic Turnabout is the only non-introductory case to not have a revisualization segment.
- Turnabout for Tomorrow is the only case that in which the revisualization segment does not occur near the end of a trial. Instead, it is done to break Athena Cykes' black Psyche-Locks.
- Turnabout Revolution is the only case to have two revisualization segments.
