About Ace Attorney
GyakutenSaibanLogo

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

Bruce Goodman

Bruce Goodman was the head detective in the SL-9 Incident. He was killed when he tried to reopen the case two years later.

Bruce Goodman was the head investigator of the SL-9 case, tracking down serial killer Joe Darke, along with his fellow investigators Angel Starr and Jake Marshall. The detectives who supervised the investigation were the legendary detectives Damon Gant and Lana Skye. Darke escaped during questioning and attacked Lana's sister Ema Skye. The ensuing confrontation ended in the murder of prosecutor Neil Marshall. Goodman interviewed Ema, and her testimony assisted in Darke's conviction. The aftermath of the case saw Gant rise to the position of chief of police and Lana promoted to chief prosecutor.more

Shelly de Killer
Oh, yes, that's right. Now that I am playing the role of the kidnapper, I can't pass up this chance to say, "And don't even think about callin' the cops!" ...Hmm, not great, but you get the idea.

(Add your own!)

Can I quote you on that?

Well, it appears this line of reasoning has become unsustainable...

PWAADD Objection!

Well, it appears that I was mistaken...
