It’s been a long time since we last saw Phoenix Wright’s spiky-haired shadow cast shadow on our doorstep – six years, in fact – and although we do enjoy the age-old antics of the forerunners, his duty to Ryunosuke Naruhodo, but we have to wonder if we’ll ever get a new one. Great lawyer…and if we do, how will it hold up the rest of the game.
In hopes of enticing Capcom to make, announce, and release a new installment in the Ace Attorney series, we’ve ranked our 10 favorite cases from the games to date.
With all that cleaning up, let’s find out which games and cases took our breath away!
1. Time Traveler (SOJ-DLC)
the spirit of justice has a rather elaborate and ostentatious court system, thanks to the new setting in the kingdom of Khura’inese, where the law is dominated by religion, so it’s a relief to return to the comforts of a court “traditional” in the DLC Case after the entire game struggles with the stupidity of Khura’in’s Divination Séance (a mechanic who is How many times do you admit to being stupid in the game?).
Other than that, Turnabout Time Traveler is just a nice classic through the weird magical realism that Lawyer Ace cases sometimes bring to the table, with the glitz of a wedding, a group of people steampunk freaks, a pterodactyl and time travel. It’s almost like Phoenix’s crossover with Professor Layton had an effect on the types of cases he received!
2. Prelude (AJ-3)
Love it or hate it Justice Apollo, you can’t deny that this in-between case is a melodramatic one. A murder at a concert reveals the truth about smuggling, hidden identities, and the Interpol investigation, and if you play through the game a second time—know more about Apollo, Trucy, and Lamiroir—then there’s also an extra layer of dramatic and morbid irony surrounding the whole case.
It’s great when the killer is the one you least expect and discovers that it’s a member of the police and The prosecutor’s best friend is a pleasant surprise discovery.
However, the real reason this case is brought here is because the main serenade track – “The Guitar’s Serenade” – is the crux of the story. A comparison of the lyrics and music to the performance of the night reveals some inconsistencies, and the mechanics that can separate individual tracks offer a welcome change to the way the usual plays out. these lawsuits. Acclaim. Encore. Et cetera.
3. Goodbye rotation (1-4)
This OG Great lawyer the case had a lot of bangs, including the BANG of the shot that got Miles Edgeworth charged with murder. And you just met the guy! Plus, he’s a bit silly…so isn’t it okay to let him down for murder? Of course not! You are a lawyer who believes in your client, even if that client is a fool.
Set “almost Christmas,” Turnabout Goodbyes is filled with the twists and turns you’d expect from a brilliant Lawyer’s case, plus the creepy Manfred von Karma as a prosecutor. , and especially of the lawyer Ace: A case tied to a difference The case happened many years ago. In this part, it’s the DL-6 incident, in which Miles Edgeworth’s attorney father is shot dead, the Fey family’s reputation is ruined, and poor little Miles is traumatized.
The best part of this case? Realize that you can use a harmless piece of evidence – a metal detector – to prove that Manfred von Karma is the killer, because he still has the bullet in his shoulder. Great tool.
4. Trump Roundabout (AJ-1)
Knowing that Phoenix Wright won’t be the main character of the fourth game in the Ace Attorney series is one thing. Finding out that he has aged into a grumpy, tired father who has had his lawyer’s license revoked is another story. And defending him in your first case as the young attorney, Apollo Justice, is a shocking twist worthy of a late-game case—yet there it is, right in First case!
This case should also be seen as a gentle welcome into a Phoenix-free courtroom, because, of course, it is Not a courtroom without Phoenix. He’s always there, pulling you out of your Good Lawyer’s comfort zone and into the world of Apollo Justice. Just that one twist makes this only featured cases on this list, because they’re usually pretty dull and often involve Phoenix forgetting how to be a lawyer, but instead turning the bets high on Turnabout Trump from the start.
Little do players know that this case will eventually develop into a tangled knot of family relationships that will have a lasting effect on the entire series…
5. Escape room adventure (GAA-3)
After a serious and clear Japanese experience in court at the beginning Great ace, Ryunosuke Naruhodo is finally in the UK, and finally arrives in a UK courtroom to warm up. To players, this may seem like a long way off, especially if you know the game’s premise (all the promotional stuff is heavily set in London, after all), but for Ryunosuke, it was a new legal system overwhelming and confusing to get used to.
The jury system was clearly broken and broken from the start, but the novel mechanics put things together nicely for veteran Lawyers fans, allowing you to meet a variety of characters. weirder in quick succession, as well as a slight variation on the usual way the cases play out. After all, who doesn’t love to prove people wrong by intelligently applying logic and evidence? No more fun doing it with six
fools are easily swayed members of the public?
The most interesting part of this case comes near the end, when you realize that your client, Magnus McGilded, is clearly guilty. To protect him, though, you’ve essentially made him invulnerable, and he’s exonerated…
…just to get her desert in a mystery arson immediately after the end of the trial.
