'Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney' (NDS) - Screens

by Rainier on Aug. 2, 2005 @ 11:04 a.m. PDT

Not everyone is innocent until proven guilty! Players star as a defence attorney, who must prove his seemingly guilty client's innocence no matter how dire the circumstances may seem. The game presents twisting storylines and intriguing gameplay in a comical anime style. Players must collect evidence, weed through inconsistent testimonies, and overcome corrupt agendas to ensure that justice prevails.


  • Play from the first person perspective through five intriguing cases
  • Two distinct gameplay segments:
    • Investigation phase - survey crime scenes, interview witnesses and gather evidence that will be used in court
    • Court phase - present findings from the investigation to support your case, listen to testimonies, examine witnesses, and determine what is fact from fiction so you can prove your client's innocence
  • Colourful cast of characters
    • Phoenix Wright - the game's main character who is an accomplished defence lawyer with a keen sense for discerning fact from truth
    • Maya Fey - a bright young girl that aids Phoenix in his trials; she is learning to harness her psychic powers which will prove useful in a pinch
    • Mia Fey - an ace attorney who taught Phoenix everything she knows about the courtroom and continues to support him as a mentor
    • Miles Edgeworth - Phoenix's arch rival, this slick prosecutor has never lost a case; his intense hatred for criminal behaviour drives him to use any means to ensure a guilty verdict
