Episode 4: Farewell, My Turnabout is the fourth and final episode in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Justice For All. This episode marks the return of Miles Edgeworth from abroad and features a special investigation mode in which Phoenix Wright uses a frequency detector to sweep for bugs at the scene of the crime. A similar mode is featured in Bridge to the Turnabout. This episode marks the début of Adrian Andrews (who reappears in The Stolen Turnabout) and Shelly de Killer (who reappears in Turnabout Target) and also features the return of Will Powers and Wendy Oldbag from Turnabout Samurai.
In the darkness, a drum roll starts and an announcer begins to speak:
|Now! The moment you've all been waiting for! Who will be this year's Grand Prix Champion? Who will be our "Hero of Heroes"!?|
As an image of the moon appears, the sound of an audience applauding and cheering can be heard. The view pans down to reveal a number of costumed characters. In the center is a figure wearing blue armor with a shuriken on his helmet. As the spotlights play over this figure, the announcer ponders:
|Will it be last year's runner-up, Jammin' Ninja!?|
The spotlights move on, with the announcer introducing each of the colorful contestants in turn:
|Or maybe Captain Saipan all the way from the lovely tropical island of Saipan!? I see the students of a certain Starry School are raring to win! And Global Hero Onyankopon doesn't want to go home without the prize! We hope lady luck is with all our heroes tonight!|
The drum roll begins once more as the moment of the announcement approaches.
|And now! The winner of the third annual Hero of Heroes Grand Prix...|
Suddenly, a voice interrupts:
The image of the moon is suddenly sliced in two and a figure drops down from the ceiling while the theme music from The Steel Samurai: Warrior of Neo Olde Tokyo plays. The announcer reacts in surprise as the figure opens a giant fan with "Hero of Heroes Super Hero" written on it while the other competitors react mainly with shock, apart from the Jammin' Ninja, who looks furious.
|Whoooooooooa! The true hero of the night has appeared in our midst! It looks like this year's Grand Prix goes to this fantastic warrior! The Nickel Samurai! Too bad, Jammin' Ninja. Looks like the title eluded you again this year!|
In the luxurious Gatewater Imperial Hotel's Viola Hall, Phoenix Wright, Maya Fey, Pearl Fey and Will Powers reacted to hearing that the Nickel Samurai won the Hero of Heroes Grand Prix in their own ways; Maya with excitement, Wright with apathy, Powers with pride that the Nickel Samurai was "doing the series justice" and Pearl with confusion. She asked if the person everyone was cheering for had won, and Maya told her that he had. When Pearl revealed that she watched Kids' Masterpiece Theatre rather than The Nickel Samurai, Maya tried to persuade her to change. Pearl wondered if Wright watched the show, but Maya told her that he was an "old fart" who wasn't allowed to watch it anymore, and he stated that he preferred Kids' Masterpiece Theatre. Pearl was annoyed that Wright and Maya were not sharing the same interests, but was told to give it a rest by Maya.
Powers was pleased that they were all having such a good time and was glad to have invited them, although he felt sorry for the Jammin' Ninja, who had lost to The Pink Princess: Warrior of Little Olde Tokyo the previous year and to The Nickel Samurai this year. At this Maya and Powers talked about how odd it was that the Jammin' Ninja was missing his signature bright red guitar, while Wright despaired at "these people and their shows". He thanked Powers anyway for inviting them, but was told it was nothing since Powers owed him for defending him in court two years earlier. Maya interjected to tell Wright that they should head for the hotel lobby since there was a post-ceremony stage show due to start soon and Powers told them that there would be a press conference after that. Wright wondered if something was to be announced, but was told it was supposedly something about the Nickel Samurai confessing something. Maya and Pearl told the pair to stop talking and start moving, with Wright wondering what the rush was about since the show wasn't due to start for another 20 minutes.

After Wright went to and returned from the bathroom, Powers gave the group tickets for a press conference that Matt Engarde, the actor of the Nickel Samurai, was scheduled to hold after the post-ceremony show. Shortly after, Wright, Maya, Pearl, and Powers went to the lobby, only to learn shortly after from the P.A. that the post ceremony show had been canceled due to a request from the police. Worried, the group started to move back towards Viola Hall, only to be stopped by the security guard, Wendy Oldbag. Wright, Maya, and Pearl managed to elude the guard and continued towards Viola Hall. Upon entering Viola Hall, they were stopped by a bellboy, who told Maya that there was a call waiting for her at the front desk. She said she would catch up with Wright later, and left with the bellboy.
Moving into the hallway, Wright heard two familiar voices and saw that Lotta Hart was trying to get information from Dick Gumshoe. When both noticed Wright had appeared on the scene, they both attempted to pressure Wright into siding with them in their argument. In doing so, the detective let it slip that a murder had taken place. Satisfied, the investigative photographer ran away in delight, beginning to spread the news. After the detective hung his head at his blunder, he proceeded to inform Wright of the events that had transpired.
The murder victim was Juan Corrida, the actor of the Jammin' Ninja in the television show of the same name. The estimated time of death was 8:15, immediately after the awards ceremony. Gumshoe didn't mention any more at the time, but he also let slip that Matt Engarde had been arrested on suspicion of murdering Corrida.
Wright and Pearl returned to the lobby, where a distressed Powers was waiting for them. Wright told him the details: that Juan Corrida had been murdered, and that Matt Engarde was the suspect. Powers groaned, commenting on how these events were just like last year. He then gave a radio transceiver to Wright, telling him that a bellboy had said it was for the attorney. Pearl was starting to wonder where Maya had gone, as it had been a long time since she had gone to answer the telephone. At that moment, the transceiver began beeping. Wright asked who the man on the other end was, but was told that he should be worried about more important things. At that moment, Maya's scream rang through the radio, yelling for help from Wright. The caller threatened to kill her if Wright refused to cooperate.
|What is this called again in your fancy lawyer terms?|
|..."Kidnapping for ransom"...|
After regaining his composure, Wright immediately asked, "H-How much!?" The kidnapper congratulated Wright on his swift grasping of the situation, but then told him that what he wanted wasn't money, but was a complete acquittal for Matt Engarde. The kidnapper went on to say that Matt Engarde hadn't killed anyone, but that someone was trying to frame him. The kidnapper told Wright that the trial was due to take place in two days, and that Wright must procure an acquittal for Matt Engarde on that day, or Maya would die. In one last act of desperation, Wright asked who this person on the other end was.
|Alright, I'll tell you that much. My name is... De Killer.|
The call was then disconnected.
Powers immediately suggested that Wright tell the police, to which Wright responded that, if something of the sort happened, Maya would die. Pearl then asked if they could trust Detective Gumshoe. Agreeing, Wright ran back to the hallway to inform the detective of the situation. The detective subsequently offered his help, but told Wright that he would probably be in the hotel for the rest of the night. However, he managed to obtain permission to let Wright and Pearl leave.
Pearl woke Wright up, hoping that they could see Engarde. However, visiting hours did not begin until 9 AM so they would have to wait. Pearl then asked Wright if he was going to represent Engarde. The latter responded by saying yes, partly because he was forced to by the kidnapper. However, when she asked him about Engarde being the real killer and still considering the idea to give him an acquittal, Wright suggested they ask Engarde first, stating that thinking "bad things" wouldn't change a thing.
When they arrived at the detention center, Wright immediately tried to comfort Engarde, in which Engarde assumed Wright was a life insurance salesman and a fire extinguisher salesman later on. Wright denied the ideas and introduced himself. Engarde then called his manager. Pearl commented him on being a strange person, while Wright thought "strange" was an understatement. Engarde finished his call and told them they arrived at the right time because his manager needed a good lawyer. When Wright decided to ask him a few personal questions, this resulted in Engarde calling his publisher. Wright tried a different approach and asked him about the murder. This made Engarde think Wright is doing this for a tabloid. When Wright asked him about the press conference, Engarde denied its existence. Engarde then told Wright he didn't need Wright to represent him. As a result, Wright suddenly blurted out De Killer's name. When Engarde heard the name, he immediately accepted Wright's terms. Engarde told Wright about his job as the Nickel Samurai and why he was suspected. He then asked why he would kill Corrida if he himself had won the Grand Prix by storm. Pearl still did not trust Engarde, so Wright decided to ask him if Engarde really did kill Corrida. When Engarde clearly stated he did not kill Juan Corrida, no Psyche-Lock appeared. Pearl then deemed him trustworthy.
Trial day 1Edit
Upon entering court, Wright saw that von Karma not at the prosecutor's bench. Miles Edgeworth then entered with terrible news; on the way to court, von Karma was shot and hospitalized. Wright realized it was the "present" de Killer promised. Edgeworth stated that he will be taking her place.
Edgeworth starts off the trial by summoning Gumshoe to the stand. Gumshoe begins by explaining that the murder had happened after the Hero of Heroes ceremony, with Corrida found dead in his hotel room. A later investigation had revealed that the guitar case in Corrida's room, initially suspected to be involved in his murder, was later concluded to be irrelevant to the murder.
During the cross examination, it was revealed that Corrida had not died of a stab wound, but rather strangulation by his bandana; the knife found in his chest was revealed to have been stabbed in by someone after Corrida had died. The guitar case was suspected by the police for the fact that the signature guitar of the Jammin' Ninja, which was carried with him everywhere, was not in the case; it was later found out that Corrida had left it at Worldwide Studios, meaning that the guitar case was already empty before Corrida even arrived at Gatewater Hotel.
Edgeworth then cuts in, summarizing the points so far. He then posed the question of why Engarde was arrested, to which Gumshoe testified again.
According to Gumshoe, Engarde and Corrida had been rivals with each other, thinking that the other party was "in his way", providing a motive for murder. A button of the Jammin' Ninja's costume was found on the "hakama" of the Nickel Samurai, and the knife found at the crime scene was covered with Engarde's fingerprints. Gumshoe then boldly exclaimed that the knife was bought, hence it was a premeditated murder, to which Wright immediately objected, showing that the knife, which had "Gatewater" engraved into it, was hotel property and not bought, hence it wasn't a premeditated murder. Edgeworth however simply laughed creepily, before saying that "the defense is too careless". He admits that the knife was hotel property, but he also points out that the knife was from Engarde's room, where two plates and two sets of utensils were placed on the table... but a knife was missing: this was the knife found at the crime scene. He then stated that as Engarde had gone to Corrida's room holding a knife, that was more than enough intent to murder Corrida.
Mia, who had been channeled by Pearl earlier, notes that Edgeworth apparently had this planned from the start, causing Wright to realize that he had fallen into the trap Edgeworth had set for him. The judge, now convinced of Engarde's guilt, was prepared to lay down the verdict, only to be stopped by Edgeworth, who invites Wright to present evidence that has yet to be presented to the court. Wright then presents the wine glass found in Corrida's room (presentation of any other evidence would cause Wright to lose the case immediately). The wine glass was found on the dresser intact, even though all the other objects originally on the dresser (a vase, makeup, etc.) were all found to be on the floor, shattered and in a mess.
The Final ConfrontationEdit
With Edgeworth unable to ask any more questions and thus unable to uphold his stance, the Judge was forced to believe that de Killer was telling the truth and that his client was Adrian Andrews. He informed Wright that, under these circumstances, Engarde would be found innocent, and Andrews would be charged with Corrida's murder instead. He then instructed that Engarde be bought to the stand.
Once Engarde took the stand, he quickly revealed his disgust not only at his own "refreshing like a spring breeze" slogan, but also the way that Wright had acted, calling him "atrocious as a lawyer". However, he remained satisfied that his defense attorney would give him the "not guilty" verdict he needed. The judge, although shocked at Engarde's change in attitude, asked Wright for his final thoughts.
Wright knew he had run out of time, but he did not know what to say, and Mia was unable to give him any advice either. If he were to side with justice and declare Engarde guilty, then Maya would be killed. If he were to save Maya and declare Engarde innocent, however, then Andrews would be found guilty for a crime she didn't commit. The judge eventually forced him for an answer and, whispering an apology to Maya, Wright made his choice.
Just before he could make his statement, von Karma burst into the room. She had located Gumshoe (who's injuries were only minor) and bought his trenchcoat, which contained the valuable pieces of evidence, to the court in his place. Wright quickly told the judge that "the defense's final pieces of evidence" were in the coat. The judge was initially reluctant to view them, as in his mind, the trial was already over, but Edgeworth persuaded him to do so. On the condition that they would only be accepted if they bought up a new lead, the judge agreed.
Von Karma then revealed that three pieces of evidence had been left behind by de Killer; a pistol, a video tape and a bellboy's uniform. Although a proper test had not been performed on the pistol, von Karma believed that the pistol was the one de Killer used to shoot her. The bullet, which she had kept as a momento, would be useful for a ballistics test. The police had had no time to examine the contents of the video tape, but de Killer had returned in an attempt to reclaim it, injuring three officers in the process. The bellboy's uniform came with a pair of black leather gloves, leading von Karma to believe it was used on the night of the murder. In addition, one of the buttons was missing.
Despite this, the judge would not accept the items, as they did not answer the question of who de Killer's client actually was. Wright, distraught by this, began to believe that miracles didn't exist after all, but Mia comforted him, explaining that miracles had to be made to happen, and urged him for her sake to try and make a miracle happen. She explained that there were two ways to defeat Engarde; either make him wish for a guilty verdict or make de Killer break his contract. Wright saw both of these as impossible, but Mia insisted that it truly would be a "miracle" if either were to happen. She then urged Wright to turn the situation around, as they had done countless times before, as although the judge was not willing to accept the items, someone else might be.
Spurred on, Wright told the judge that although the court had seen all the evidence, he wanted to show them to another person, someone who had not seen them. The judge decided to allow Wright to show one piece of evidence to one person, but told him it would be the only chance allowed, otherwise Engarde would be declared innocent. Thinking back through everything that had happened up until now, Wright made his decision: to show the newly acquired video tape to Shelly de Killer.
Contact was re-established with de Killer and Wright asked him about the tape. He confirmed that he had returned in an attempt to retrieve it and that he had done so on a request from his client. Wright then asked about the contents, but de Killer admitted he didn't know, as he had been told not to watch it. Wright then second-guessed that the video contained the murder of Corrida by de Killer. He told the assassin that a camera had been set-up in the room and that the only person who could have done that would have been his own client. Furthermore, de Killer had been given a specific time and place to murder Corrida, for the sole purposes of being filmed.
De Killer, shocked by this revelation, demanded to know why his client had done this. Remembering his talk with Engarde the night before, Wright explained that de Killer's client didn't trust him at all, and had every intention of using the video for blackmailing purposes. In fact, the client had never trusted anyone and used anyone to get their own way. This enraged de Killer, as far as he was concerned, his client had broken their bond of trust and was now a traitor. Edgeworth, remembering that de Killer despised traitors, asked him what would happen if one of his own clients betrayed him. De Killer revealed that, if that was the case, he would break their contract and then hunt them down as his next target, no matter how long it took (Wright realized at this point that this was the "miracle" Mia had told him about). De Killer then officially broke his contract with Engarde and informed Wright that he would return Maya to him, much to the attorney's relief.
Engarde was then bought back to the stand. He had overheard de Killer's statements and desperately pleaded Wright to help him. Wright told him (either directly or indirectly, depending on the player's choice) that even if Engarde were given an acquittal, he would be at risk from a betrayed de Killer the moment he stepped out of the courtroom. Realizing there was only one way to save his life, Engarde desperately pleaded guilty, screaming loudly and scratching new scars into his face.
As Engarde was lead off by von Karma, Andrews was bought back to the witness stand. She explained that she intended to pay for her own "crimes" and admitted that she had felt "hopeless" when Edgeworth had challenged her. Her time in the detention centre made her see herself for what she really was, however, and admitted, with a gentle smile on her face, that she felt she had been "saved" when Wright and Edgeworth had teamed up to convict Engarde. She thanked both of them profusely, and the judge, although still very confused over the matter, decided to adjourn the court whilst everyone was in good spirits.
Wright headed back to the defendant lobby. Von Karma then entered the room and told Wright that his perfect win record was soiled, and that his celebration was strange. Edgeworth entered the room, explaining why he left the office. He realized being a lawyer is not about being perfect, but finding the truth. Angry about Edgeworth having lost his title of being a von Karma disciple, Franziska von Karma stormed out, leaving her whip and her Gumshoe tracker behind.Edgeworth took the tracker, while Maya entered the room to have a heartfelt reunion with Wright and Pearl. Maya declared that she is starving, so the group left for dinner at the Viola Hall. They discussed the trial, Wright gave Edgeworth the whip and, after some urging, Phoenix Wright said his catchphrase one last time.
The game then cut to the credits.
During the credits, Phoenix meets with all the people he met during the course of the game; e.g., Maggey Byrde tells him how she means to become a waitress, and the members of the Berry Big Circus tell Phoenix about how they plan to tour the world.
After the creditsEdit
After the credits, Edgeworth meets von Karma at the airport. He tells her that she will be a prosecutor no matter what, and returns her whip. von Karma tells Edgeworth that she was never a genius, which she always knew. However, she goes on to say that Edgeworth had always left her behind. Therefore, her revenge would be to defeat Wright in court and thus be better than Edgeworth. Edgeworth tells her that, if she quits prosecuting, the two will part ways. Von Karma begins to cry, and, through tears, tells Edgeworth that she will not be left behind. She still goes on the airplane, but says that she will deliver the fourth piece of evidence to Wright herself, when they next meet.
The final piece of evidence is revealed to be something that Maya drew while imprisoned - a picture of Wright drawn on one of de Killer's shell cards, with the word "Nick" on it.
References to other casesEdit
- The Gatewater Imperial Hotel is owned by the same company that owns the Gatewater Hotel from Turnabout Sisters. Wright also mentions the bellboy from that case if the Viola Hall is examined and mentions that he was given something "fancy" by the latter the previous year during the events of the episode.
- There are numerous references to Turnabout Samurai during the episode since The Nickel Samurai is a sequel of sorts to The Steel Samurai: Warrior of Neo Olde Tokyo and The Pink Princess: Warrior of Little Olde Tokyo. Will Powers and Wendy Oldbag made their debuts in Turnabout Samurai as well.
- Wright recalls his nightmare from the beginning of The Lost Turnabout.
- There are a couple of references to Turnabout Big Top during this episode, with Wright commenting that the Hero of Heroes Grand Prix award ceremony held on the Viola Hall stage was "fabulous" which Pearl says reminds her of the circus, along with the circus itself being the last hiding place of Shelly de Killer and the kidnapped Maya Fey. Also, if Wright examines the bears in Juan Corrida's hotel room, a flashback will be shown with Moe the clown telling a joke, and then laughing.
- This is the first time in the Ace Attorney series that the player is able to control another character, with Maya Fey being briefly controlled at the end of each chapter. It is also the first of only three times (the other two being Lamiroir at the finale of Turnabout Succession and Detective Gumshoe during The Imprisoned Turnabout) in which a non-attorney character is playable, although there are very few options in terms of control.
- This case acts like a reunion of sorts for some of the characters who appeared in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney including Lotta Hart, Wendy Oldbag, Will Powers and Miles Edgeworth.
- This episode is the only one to end in a guilty verdict in the Ace Attorney series so far. The only other case Wright did not win can be found in Turnabout Succession, due to no verdict being declared. It is also the only one where receiving the "Not Guilty" verdict results in losing the game (but not the case).
- De Killer's pistol resembles the real-world Luger P08.
- Franziska von Karma says that she will deliver the fourth piece of evidence, the vandalized de Killer calling card, to Wright when they next meet. However, at their next meeting, no mention is made of it.
- If Mia Fey and "Director Hotti" were included in the court record, this would have been the first case released to have two complete pages of profiles. This would later be accomplished in the Gyakuten Kenji 2 case The Grand Turnabout, which has another seven profiles after the first two pages, totaling 23 profiles altogether.
- This is the second case in which Mia Fey makes a significant appearance, but is not included in the court record (the first being Turnabout Samurai).
The player achieves this ending if Wright either presented any evidence except the video tape, presented it to anyone but Shelly de Killer, or said anything other than that Engarde "wanted blackmail on you".
Wright delivered a speech. Afterward, he fled the courtroom to wander the streets alone. Days after the trial, he heard the verdict of Adrian Andrews' trial, which was, of course, guilty. The miracle he had hoped for never happened, maybe because, as he concluded to himself, a "miracle" is something that doesn't exist. He never saw Maya again, but was sure that de Killer released her, as he was a man of his word.
- On the second day, after receiving Engarde's request to feed Shoe, Gumshoe will suddenly barge into Wright's office. After a quick chat with Wright, the player then can chose one of three topics: "The Future", "Edgeworth", and "Franziska". Midway though the "The Future" topic, Gumshoe will say, "I guess that means I'm just gonna half to work here at your place, pal!", instead of "I guess that means I'm just gonna have to work here at your place, pal!"
- During the first trial recess, Wright, Mia, and Engarde discuss the likelihood of Adrian Andrews being the murderer. During this conversation, Mia refers to her as "Mr. Andrews", instead of "Ms. Andrews".
- One of the English localization's most infamous typos occurs in the Nintendo DS version's "bad ending", when Wright says: "The miracle never happen." This error was corrected for the European version of the game, which instead has Wright correctly state: "The miracle never happened."
