*** Luke Atmey's original catchphrase before "Zvarri" was "Schwing"! Additionally, Godot was going to drink bourbon whiskey and smoke, but the production team worried it'd have a bad effect on kids.

Godot was going to drink bourbon whiskey and smoke, but the production team worried it'd have a bad effect on kids.kids, not to mention it would have bumped the content rating in the Japanese version. It was this experience of designing Godot's drinking habits that that later begat the grape juice drinking habit of Phoenix Wright.



* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: In some of his old developer blogs, Shu Takumi mentioned how he sometimes got stuck figuring out a way to resolve a case's mystery, only to have an EurekaMoment and figure out a solution. Examples of this are [[spoiler:Gourdy being Larry's air tank in 1-4]] and [[spoiler:Mia telling Maya to lock herself in a cavern and channel Dahlia Hawthorne in order to trap her]].

*** The UsefulNotes/NintendoDS remake of the original ''Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney'' was originally conceived as a straight simple port exclusively for the international market, with no extra case. Like most software projects however, it underwent a bit of feature creep, first by giving Japan their own version of the port with Rise of the Ashes exclusive to them, and then making Rise of the Ashes available to everyone. What began a simple port and localization project became the equivalent of developing a whole new installment in the series.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Canonically, the trilogy takes place from 2016 to 2019 (as proven by the date of the DL-6 Incident). However, the [[TechnologyMarchesOn technology featured in them]] matches up with the tech that was around in the early 2000s, the time frame when the games were made. VHS tapes, black-and-white photos, and old cellphones are still in use[[note]](negated slightly by the fact that in the real world, old-style cellphones actually ''are'' experiencing a revival in popularity, thanks to some people finding smartphones needlessly complex, and preferring the longer battery life of simpler phones)[[/note]], and digital cameras are still a new thing.

*** ''Justice For All'' was planned to have five cases, but the last had to be scrapped because of lack of memory. It was later reused as the third case in ''Trials and Tribulations''. The third game also had many things cut for memory reasons, including a design for a much-younger Gumshoe in the first trial and Oldbag showing up (there was just enough room for a cameo in the credits, and they were still unable to put her in a lei, which they wanted to do to suggest she'd been in Hawaii).

*** Maya originally being planned to be a lawyer-in-training under Phoenix. In [[http://www.capcom-unity.com/zeroobjections/blog/2014/09/12/the-early-days-of-ace-attorney a different blog post]], it was mentioned that Phoenix met her and Mia under ''very'' different circumstances, that Turnabout Sisters would have been the first trial of the game (it was bumped to second as it was felt it was too big to be a lead-in), and Phoenix originally would have been a detective who was arrested for murder after he walked into his office to find a corpse.[[note]]Which actually happened to Edgeworth [[VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth much later on]].[[/note]] He then would have taken up his own defense because of how incompetent his own defense attorney (who became Winston Payne) was.
