Any plans to start a new page for Ace Attorney 5 yet? Or are we still waiting for more info?
05:22:14 PM May 13th 2013
Um...I was actually thinking of doing that, actually. Should I just...

So, who would you see doing voiceovers in an anime? I'm thinking Jamieson Price for Von Karma.

Who the crap put Phoenix Wright in the visual novels category? It's distinctly not a visual novel.

A visual novel is a type of game. I think you're thinking of light novels, which are books with a few manga illustrations.

Ace Attorney IS a visual novel. Check this in our very own wiki:

EDIT: Also, I'm not the one that moved it, just to clear that doubt.

Why was the fail law page completely deleted rather than being renamed to something like "Artistic Licence - Law?"

Don't wanna sound like a sore loser or anything... Is there any evidence to support the claim that AA and Ghost Trick are set in the same universe?

Granted, GT might be set in a different country (a country without death penalty for murderer, a possibility I've overlooked because I firmly believe in the 'fascists-have-won' Ace Attorney WMG and I assumed that a death penalty-less state couldn't exist in such universe). However, the few articles (written before the game was released) I've found which support the same universe theory, base their claims on the appearance (cameos) of Missile, Payne and Phoenix Wright in both AA and GT. The last two were obviously mistaken for the green and blue detective, respectively. And Missile is definitely not the same dog either. So is there any actual link between the games? Some say that it's been confirmed by Word of God so I'd appreciate if anyone could provide a link to the interview.

On the other hand, I'm also aware that there's no evidence in Ghost Trick which would disapprove the theory either. Still, in my opinion those who say it's true bear the burden of proof.
03:11:23 PM Mar 4th 2011
AFAIK, the only real evidence is the Word of God that states so. "GT is set in the same universe as AA, but it isn't canon to AA." That's what I remember.

Actually, it was (in response to ONM asking him if there was "any crossover with Phoenix Wright") "There already is! Will there be a major turnabout towards the end of the story? You will have to find out for yourselves...", which seems more like it's referring to a thematic crossover more than anything else, with the "turnabout" referring to the twists at the end.

Folks, the size of this page is getting a bit out of hand, so I think we should give each game their own page to chop it down.

Before I take it to the Repair Shop, I'd like to hear your opinion on the matter.
10:57:33 PM Nov 7th 2010
I agree fully. It''s pretty bad. ಠ_ಠ
05:00:04 AM Nov 8th 2010
Yeah, it is unreasonably huge. I can go ahead and make The Musical its own page if that's okay.

Did someone just put back all the tropes I moved to the AAI page?
08:07:32 AM Nov 1st 2010
Can anyone point me in the direction of that fan-made comic where Phoenix punches Edgeworth for withholding the second part of Inpax's death report?
07:49:43 AM Oct 13th 2010
The comics we've just added appear the come from different sources. The Maya and Mia comic use the English names while the Edgeworth comic uses the Japanese name. Where'd we get them anyway?
10:56:55 AM Oct 3rd 2010
We must add folders for each of the games. This is getting ridiculous.
07:09:25 PM Oct 8th 2010
I'd say individual pages would work better. With folders, the bloat is still there.

Would the fourth game count as a Deconstruction of the series, given how it addresses the "guilty until proven innocent" and the "smoking gun or bust" natures of the previous games and how they actually hinder bringing the killer to justice?
06:18:55 PM Aug 13th 2010
I think we need to do something about the Shout-Out example. It spans a fairly significant percentage of the page and we should probably trim it down a bit. Maybe its own folder?

Does anyone know if the Japanese version implies Lotta Hart has a Kanto accent? I've been wondering if the English translation's making her a southern belle has anything to do with that.
07:26:29 PM Jun 9th 2010
You mean Osaka? Kanto is where the "normal" people are from.
07:29:33 PM Jun 9th 2010
Yes Lotta Hart is The Idiot from Osaka in the Japanese version. By the way this works both ways, Raymond from The Princess and the Frog went from Cajun to Osaka when translated into Japanese. So Southern Accent= Osakan accent.

Meant Kansai there... egh. Thanks for clearing that up.

Anybody notice the rampant Flanderization of certain popular characters as the games pass? Edgeworth's fear of quakes, Larry's hitting anything that moves/general buttmonkey-ness, Oldbag's annoyance level, Gumshoe's stupidity...

Not that that's entirely a bad thing, just that it's more than a little jarring when one compares, say, the first game to the third...
08:15:09 PM Apr 28th 2010
Some of them are pretty extreme, though Edgeworth's fear of quakes actually seems to have dropped - aside from a single blackout on the plane, he was surprisingly calm in his own game. Aside from that, it's pretty consistent - he pretty much passes out or goes catatonic. And since There Are No Therapists, I guess he hasn't done anything about it in the 15+ years since DL-6.

Gumshoe seems to have gotten worse and worse over time, and even flashback Gumshoe makes you wonder how he got on the force in the first place. Even Mike Meekins got fired for being that incompetent eventually.

I got the impression Larry was pretty unreliable in the first game, and we just didn't spend nearly enough time with him there to understand how bad he could get. But he *did* hit on Maya when he first met her...and he was pretty willing to not help Phoenix with good testimony even when he knew Edgeworth was going to go to prison if he didn't tell the story straight.

Oldbag is always annoying to the extreme, but I think her crush on Edgey definitely flanderized over time. On the other hand, they did mention she was pretty into Hammer in the first game...maybe her Edgeworth antics are a hint of what poor Hammer went through.

Does anyone notice the amount of fatherhood fatality involved especially when they bring their children to the courthouse?

Edgeworth, Kay and Trucy's fathers
08:23:38 AM Mar 30th 2010
At least Zak didn't die in the courthouse.

And don't forget Apollo's dad too. And Mia and Maya Fey's dad died, but he wasn't even important enough to spawn a long subplot.
08:46:13 AM Mar 30th 2010
Is there any mentioned father in any game in this series that isn't dead? I seriously can't think of any aside from Phoenix (but his daughter is adopted, so I guess he's exempt).

I was about to suggest Manfred von Karma but... we know he was executed.

But really, seems like especially if you're a prosecutor and a father, the chances of you surviving seems to drop tremendously. Not sure what kind of trope this would be, Fatal Family Photo?
07:36:19 PM Apr 28th 2010
Big Wins Kitaki hasn't kicked the bucket yet, at the very least.
10:50:19 AM Mar 19th 2010
Er, hey. You know in the main article it mentions Adrian in a 4-koma? I've never seen it and I was wondering how you can get a hold of this.
10:54:07 AM Mar 9th 2010
Does anyone else think that the scars that Matt Engard has was caused by a jilted Celeste Impax? Or is there a canonical explanation for them?
11:20:37 AM Apr 2nd 2010
I think its a case of Good Scars, Evil Scars?
07:59:51 AM Nov 1st 2010
Judging by what happens when he gets convicted, I'd say that the implication may be that they're self-inflicted.
01:47:18 AM Mar 24th 2011

Personally, I saw the scars as being from Celeste when Matt dumped her after he used her. You know, like her clawing his face with her nails because she was so pissed at him.
