Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations is the third game in the Ace Attorney series, and the last entry in the original Category:Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy. In addition to three episodes in which Phoenix Wright faces off against a mysterious new prosecutor named Godot, the game also features the first two cases of Mia Fey's law career. The game's original release on the Game Boy Advance marked the first time an Ace Attorney game contained more than four episodes.

As with the previous two games in the series, Trials and Tribulations was brought to the Nintendo Wii as a downloadable title via WiiWare. It was released in Japan on February 23, 2010, priced at 1200 Nintendo Points and in North America on May 10, 2010 for 1000 Nintendo Points and on May 21, 2010 for Europe at the same price. The game is also available on the Nintendo 3DS as part of the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy.


  1. Turnabout Memories: When a young college student named Phoenix Wright is accused of murdering fellow student Doug Swallow, rookie attorney Mia Fey takes on his defense in what will be only her second trial.
  2. The Stolen Turnabout: Wright defends Ron DeLite, who stands accused of being the infamous thief Mask☆DeMasque and stealing the legendary Sacred Urn of Maya Fey's hometown of Kurain Village. Facing him in court is a mysterious new prosecutor called Godot, who for some reason appears to have a grudge against Wright. However, Phoenix's defense backfires when an alibi established for DeLite gets him accused of a murder that happened at the same time, forcing Phoenix to prove his client's innocence once again.
  3. Recipe for Turnabout: Maggey Byrde is found guilty of murder due to Wright's shoddy defense work. However, the first Wright hears of this is when an angry Dick Gumshoe confronts him, and soon realizes that someone had impersonated him. Defending Byrde for a second time, Wright pursues the truth behind the incident to bring his impersonator to justice.
  4. Turnabout Beginnings (takes place before Turnabout Memories chronologically): In her first case, Mia Fey, along with Diego Armando, defends Terry Fawles, an escaped prison convict accused of murdering police detective Valerie Hawthorne, leading to her first encounter with Miles Edgeworth and Dahlia Hawthorne.
  5. Bridge to the Turnabout: Wright, Maya Fey, and Pearl Fey take a trip to Hazakura Temple, a location with strong ties to the Fey clan. However, events soon spiral out of control, with Maya going missing, Wright falling from a bridge into a raging river far below while trying to reach her, and the children's author Elise Deauxnim being found dead on the temple grounds. Garnering help from an unexpected ally, Wright now pursues the truth of the Fey clan.
