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

Featured article
Lotta Hart OA

Lotta Hart is a fiery-tempered photographer who appeared as a witness in several of Phoenix Wright's cases, with much of the photographic evidence in said cases coming from her.

According to her, Hart was born and raised in the "Heart of the Heartland". She was originally at college, but after believing to have taken a picture of a "yoofoh" (U.F.O.) in her sister's graduation photograph, she left college to become an "investigative photographer".more

Featured article nomination discussions

If you choose "Other" in the poll (and even if you don't), you are encouraged to try to nominate the article that you want featured. Do this in this page's talk page. Post about an article that you think should be featured in the future, and give good reasons for your choice. Wikipedia's guidelines are good considerations for nominating articles. At the very least, though, the article should be complete as outlined in the manual of style. This basically means that it should give a complete general description of its subject by itself.

I'm just a lowly security guard, so... ... I'm not sure what I should do with that other than to guard it!
