Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney − Trials and Tribulations - Wikipedia
It is the third game in the Ace Attorney series, following Phoenix Wright: Ace . to end with Trials and Tribulations, as he had explored Phoenix's character fully used the case to explore the relationship between Edgeworth and Gumshoe. The closest thing we had was Daliah and it didn't end well. Given that Ace Attorney was inspired by Columbo, I hope that in a future game, Phoenix . Sibling-like relationships spiral into romantic relationships all the time. I have 1 of each * Ron and Desirée DeLite - By the end of the case you Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth - Prosecutor's Path* .. I also have to go with Phoenix and Edgeworth as my favorite platonic relationship.
When Phoenix returns, he explains that Elise is really Maya's long-lost mother, Misty Fey, and that her death was the result of a plan engineered by her sister Morgan to kill Maya with the help of the now deceased Dahlia, who turns out to be Iris's twin. Through cross-examination, Phoenix reveals that not only is Dahlia impersonating Iris, she is using Maya's body to do so. With Mia's help, Dahlia is exorcised from Maya and Iris is declared innocent.
Godot is revealed as the one responsible for killing Misty to protect Maya, leading to the discovery of his true identity: Having spent many years blaming Phoenix for Mia's death, he sought revenge, but concedes that Phoenix has done more to continue her legacy than him. Iris also reveals that she posed as Dahlia while Phoenix was attending college to protect him, ended up falling in love with him, and that she regrets her failure to stop her sister from becoming a criminal.
Reuniting with his friends, Phoenix celebrates finally being free of his past. Development[ edit ] The game was directed and written by Shu Takumi. Ace Attorney was finished, Takumi's boss, Shinji Mikamitold him that they should make an Ace Attorney trilogy, with a grand finale in the third game's last case. In the first game, Takumi had Phoenix being guided through his first trial by the judge and Mia, and for the second game, he had Phoenix suffer from amnesia; when writing the third game, Takumi did not know what to do, as it would not seem credible if Phoenix had amnesia a second time.
Eventually he came up with the idea of using a flashback to a case where Mia had just become an attorney; he developed this idea further, and ended up using flashbacks as a major theme for the game's story. Trying to come up with a way for a case in the past to work with neither of them winning or losing, he came up with the story for Terry Fawles, who dies during the trial. While he was writing the story for the game's final case, he thought of the idea to have Edgeworth become a player character; he liked this idea so much that he immediately started to rewrite the case.
In order to allow Edgeworth to be the player character, the first thing he did was to "get rid of" Phoenix by having him fall from a bridge into an icy river. He enjoyed writing from another character's perspective, who thought differently from Phoenix; he also used the case to explore the relationship between Edgeworth and Gumshoe.
To accomplish this, they made use of "tricks and workarounds" they had figured out since working on the first game: Takumi found these constraints fun, as it was a chance to improve the team's abilities and a source of inspiration for doing as much as possible within the memory limitations. The character Oldbag from the first game was first cut, then included as a cameo at the end when they realized that they had just enough space for her; Takumi wanted to have her wear a lei as she would have just come back from a Hawaii trip, but was unable to due to memory limitations.
Due to miscalculations of the game asset size, they had to make the character Bikini shorter in order to save some memory. He also drew the storyboards for the episodes' openings.

The first opening they did was for episode 2; it used animation a lot, and was liked by the development team, inspiring Takumi to make even better openings for the rest of the episodes and leading the team to think of movie effects that could be used.
For one opening, they gave it a "vintage movie feel": Takumi explained the role as a hard-boiled guy, so Kamiya decided to adapt the dialogue and shout "Objection, baby!
Takumi said that it was a good take, but that the in-game graphics just say "Objection! They changed several character names for the localization: Dahlia Hawthorne's English name came from the X Japan album Dahliawhich Hsu was listening to at the time of the localization, as well as the short story " Rappaccini's Daughter ".
Her nickname, Dollie, was a reference to an attempted fan translation of Trials and Tribulations, in which she was named Dolly. Because Alfonso, who is from Canada, wanted to "show his Maple Pride", it was decided to make the judge's brother a Canadian. Edgeworth tries to explain that he is as involved in the case as Lance, but Lang tells him to go back to his "precious courtroom".
After Devorae's body is discovered, but before Meekins is accused, Lang returns, notices Edgeworth with the body and asks him to remove himself.

Edit During the first Investigation phase, Von Karma appears and scolds Edgeworth for hesitating, stating that the case should have been resolved in less than three minutes.

After the first Investigation phase, but before Gumshoe is accused, Franziska declares herself "the victor", stating that Edgeworth is unworthy of the Von Karma name. During the Beginning chapter, after Gumshoe is accused, Edgeworth admits that he has nothing to counter Yew's claim, and Badd tells Gumshoe to come along quietly.
While investigating the hallway, Badd forces Edgeworth and Franziska to leave, claiming that they are in his way. While talking with the Judge in the courtroom, the Judge announces that he has to prepare for his next court hearing, but will arrange for Gumshoe's arrest.
Edgeworth protests, but the Judge sees no need to further prolong the issue and adjourns court. While questioning Gumshoe or talking to Kay in the courtroom, Yew and Badd appear and stop Edgeworth, stating that there is enough evidence to take Gumshoe into custody.

After Faraday has been cleared, but before Butz has, Lang quotes Lang Zi's "Expect everything from a criminal", as all their actions are suspicious, before proclaiming Butz to be overly so. Despite Butz's protests, Lang arrests him before telling Edgeworth he had hoped that he would have kept him entertained.
Edgeworth, unable to come up with a counterargument, watches hopelessly as Butz is arrested. While investigating the Rose Garden, Lang notices the time and suggests that Edgeworth go home and rest, commenting that he's just playing around, albeit unintentionally. While investigating Coachen's Office the second time, Shih-na appears and questions Edgeworth and Faraday's presence there, claiming they're wasting their time at best, and tampering with the crime scene at worst.
She then forces them to vacate the premises. During the "Middle, Part 3" chapter, Lang claims any further discussion to be a waste of time, before taking Edgeworth off the case on the grounds that he is losing his objectivity.
After Yew is arrested, but before Franziska is accused, Lang appears - to Edgeworth's surprise - claiming that he won't let him take his case away from him, before forcing Edgeworth and Franziska out of the building. After Franziska is accused, but before accusing Alba, Lang arrests Franziska, claiming to be tired of waiting for others to solve his case.
After accusing Alba, but before he "confesses", he forces everyone to vacate the premises, commenting that he doubts he and Lang will meet again anytime soon. After Alba's "confession", but before he returns, he reappears and forces Edgeworth out of the building. He comments that they will not meet again, but that he will pray for their success.

Special bad endings Edit All main series games except Trials and Tribulations feature a scene in their last case where fulfilling certain conditions will result in the game ending in an alternative and often dark fashion. This often occurs because the player has "lost" in a manner other than having his or her client pronounced guilty. Doing so will finger Ema Skye as the murderer of Neil Marshalland Lana Skye will be found guilty for the murder of Bruce Goodmanher motive being to cover up her sister's actions.
Farewell, My Turnabout Edit "The miracle never happened. Near the end, Wright is given the chance to present one piece of evidence from a choice of three to a witness. If he presents any combination other than Shelly de Killer's profile and the Video Tape or presents the Video Tape firstor answers the witness's follow-up question with anything other than "[Engarde] wanted blackmail on you", this ending is achieved.
Unable to support his claim regarding Matt Engarde 's guilt, Wright can only watch as his client is found "Not Guilty". Wright flees the courtroom out of shame and roams the streets alone, never to set foot in a courtroom again. He never again sees Maya Feywho had been kidnapped prior to the trial by Shelly de Killerbut knowing that de Killer is a man of his word, he is sure he has released her.
Days later, he receives news of the outcome of Adrian Andrews 's trial: The miracle he had hoped for never happened. A large part of this scene's infamy stems from a grammatical error in the American version of the Nintendo DS English localization of Justice For All, where the line reads, "The miracle never happen.
