* RemadeForTheExport: The original game is not a 1:1 port of the Game Boy Advance version of ''Gyakuten Saiban'' due to the addition of "Rise From the Ashes", hence why it was released in Japan as "''Gyakuten Saiban: Yomingaeru Gyakuten''" (the subtitle being used as the Japanese title of the fifth episode). The second and third games were straight ports.

There's [[FanFic/ACompleteTurnabout a fan fic based on this premise.]]

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. He then would have taken up his own defense because of how incompetent his own defense attorney was.

Added DiffLines:

* BonusEpisode: "Rise from the Ashes". It was made as this for the DS version to show off some of the DS' features. Although other ports that include this episode have some of those features changed to fit the platform.
* NoExportForYou: Despite EVERY other game being released and despite even getting a few prerelease reviews in gaming magazines, ''Trials and Tribulations'' was never released in Australia. No reason was ever given (although it may be related to the fact that its release was delayed in Europe over ratings complications, causing ''Apollo Justice'' to come out before it).
** The WiiWare version of ''Trials and Tribulations'' was released in Australia, at least.
