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 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.

Random quote
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?
Gaspen Payne
With me as an adversary, who wouldn't want to feign illness in order to escape?
Athena Cykes
(What?! The nerve of that guy! I'm going to give him a piece of my mind! W-Well, I would if I wasn't so nervous... Argh! This arrogant jerk!)
Widget
You arrogant jerk!
Athena Cykes
N-No! Widget!
Gaspen Payne
Is my hearing getting worse? I could've heard the defense say something just now.
Athena Cykes
N-N-No! You didn't hear anything at all! Especially not from me!
Judge
Hmm... How odd... I could have sword I also heard something...
Athena Cykes
...Oh , that would be my indispensible [sic] partner, Widget. He... sometimes blurts out what I'm thinking.
Gaspen Payne
Heh heh. Well then. If that's the case, then it's a clear contradiction to what you just stated!
Athena Cykes
(A contradiction?)
Gaspen Payne
You just stated that you said nothing. However, if that device of yours says what you're thinking... then you indeed said I was... what was it? Elegance at work?
Athena Cykes
Eeep! (Actually, it was arrogant jerk...)
