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

Featured article

Joe Darke was a businessman who killed several people in 2015 in an incident known as the SL-9 Incident in police files. He was wrongfully convicted and executed for the murder of Neil Marshall — the only one of the victims that he did not kill — through fake evidence. The real killer was not arrested for Marshall's murder until two years later.

In 2015, the Criminal Affairs Department had a special team investigate the spree killings of Edward Jones, Jason Knight, Edith Kirby, Rachael Moss, and Jeb Bates. The team's working hypothesis was that, on his way home from work, Joe Darke had accidentally hit a man with his car, killing him. Events had then quickly spiralled out of control as Darke murdered a man who had witnessed the accident, followed by a lady who had witnessed this second crime, and then a child who had been walking by the crime scene at the time. A jogger had also stumbled across Darke as the latter was burying the bodies and was killed as well. However, this was all conjecture with no decisive evidence, until Darke turned himself in.more
