I'm going to revisualize the case from start to finish!

A revisualization sequence in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies.


A revisualization sequence in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice.

Revisualization[1] is a plot device used in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice. It occurs at a critical point in a trial, when the protagonist is backed into a corner and has to review his or her thinking to reach a decisive conclusion that turns the case on its head. Thematically, it is similar to the logic epiphanies in Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth and Gyakuten Kenji 2. Mechanically, it is essentially a series of multiple choice questions about items and evidence connected to the case. There are unique responses to every answer, including the incorrect ones, and no penalty is incurred for choosing incorrectly. The music that plays when Revisualization is used is titled "Thought Route ~ Synaptic Resonance" (カンガエルート ~シナプスの共鳴).
