    Welcome to the first ever SPPf club for Ace Attorney, where you can talk about the games, characters and anything else related to this awesome series.
    That includes spin-offs, cross-overs, fanfiction, shippings, manga, etc. I plan on making this club a success, so let's begin discussing.


    Ace Attorney, known in Japan as Gyakuten Saiban (Turnabout Trial), is a series of adventure games created by Shu Takumi and published by Capcom in which players assume the role of a defense attorney in a fictional courtroom setting, which is based on the Japanese legal system, to strive to find their clients "not guilty" using investigation, evidence, and cross-examination to prove their case.

    The first three games in the series, originally released only in Japan and in Japanese between 2001 and 2004 for the Game Boy Advance platform, have been ported to the Nintendo DS as well as localized into English and other languages. The series has been developed for the DS from the ground up starting with the fourth game. The DS remakes and games in the series take advantage of the DS features, including the microphone and touchscreen. The series was released on WiiWare in Japan from December 15, 2009 and in North America from January 11, 2010.

    The first three games feature and are sometimes referred to by the eponymous main protagonist, Phoenix Wright. The fourth game, set seven years after the end of the third game, introduces a new protagonist, Apollo Justice, who takes over from Wright, and Miles Edgeworth, a key character from the first trilogy, is featured in two special interquel titles set between the third and fourth games. [Synopsis is taken from Wikipedia]

    It is recommended that all members read this first.

    Welcome, treecko. You and your claim have been added to the list. Thank you for joining and please tell everyone you know who's an AA fan. Btw, I love your sig and location :D

    NEW TOPIC: On 11 Oct, it was the tenth anniversary of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney being released on the GBA. I chose to celebrate by playing all the games in order from the very beginning, as I own all the games and have been itching to play them for a while.

    Did anyone else choose to celebrate this big milestone?

    Finally xD
    I planned on making this club, but school ended that dream -.-
    I could try Co-owning this, I am online everyday for a brief 2 hours or so.

    EDIT : I got the GBA version as a Birthday gift, and then followed the series ever since then.

    I celebrated as well :D
    Played the first 4 games all day. I fell sick that day, the best way to spend the day.

    I've heard rumours about a possible Gyakuten Saiban 5, does anyone know about it?

    Welcome new members, you and your claims have been added to the list. Thank you for joining.

    @CyberBlaziken - you are now a co-owner of this club. What this means is you are free to strike anyone who breaks the rules, and you are responsible for the club in my absence. You can step down at any time if you wish.

    Also, I'm quite jealous that you have the GBA version. I don't have any of them due to the fact that I don't understand Japanese. As for a potiental sequel, I haven't heard any news of that. Of course, I hope this is true.
  9. CyberBlaziken

    CyberBlaziken Oh Yeah?

    Yes, I understand. I'll do my best.

    Believe me, I didn't understand anything. I had my cousin explain each and every line for me.
    So that took me a very, very long time to finish.

    About, the sequel, I read some articles about it. I'll post them if I can find, if you want that is.

    And I'll try to make some banners as well, if I can find some spare time. Any request for specific characters?
  10. Meowth City

    Meowth City ♥ Shipper ♥ Staff Member Moderator

    ^ I take it that your cousin knows Japanese. That's lucky for you, as I don't even know anyone who knows the language so having to google every word would take even longer. Good thing, the DS ones are in English.

    Yes, please feel free do post anything relating to the games. That goes for everyone here.

    Banners, that sounds good to me. I don't mind which characters at all, so free feel to go crazy xD

    Why do you want to join? Because this series is awesome, especially the characters. =D
    Character Claim: Ema Skye. Of course. ;)

    I got into this series because of TVTropes, to be honest. Somehow on there, I got linked to a video of the BIGGEST spoiler of JFA. Then I got addicted and watched loads of other videos, until I decided to get the games proper. Love 'em. I've got the Phoenix trilogy and the first Edgeworth game, and will get the second when it comes out. Yes, WHEN. It's not that I hate Apollo at all - I'd play the games if they had just left Phoenix and Ema alone. T_T The Ema I have claimed is more specifically the AAI Ema, when she is still awesome.

    CyberBlaziken Oh Yeah?

    ^ The form requires your Nickname :p
    Please edit that part of your post. Other than that,
    Welcome to the Club! I'm Kai.

    Your name and claim will be added by Meowth on the first post.

    So, you haven't played the Apollo Justice game?
    Ah, I have seen a lot of people to gain a certain dislike for the older Ema. Personally, I like her. And she's really pretty o_O
    And also Snackooos! xD

    Sorry for the inactivity, I lost my Laptop few weeks back.
    Coming on with my phone is a pain, but I'll try more often though.

    I signed that petition months ago :D

    Few banners will be up this weekend, hopefully..

    Why do you want to join?: I love the AA games, and the characters are so interesting and amazing it is almost like you can imagine them beside you when you play.
    Character claim: Klavier Gavin *Guilty Love plays in the background*

    I got into the game because of the Kurain Murder (Reunion, and Turnabout I think). It was so interesting so I started to play the first game and continued to be a fan.

    Klavier Gavin is so cool, one of my favourite prosecutor other than Edgeworth while Franziska was hilarious but a bit aggressive. It was cool when she walked around with Pheonix in the final case of T&T (she has funny remarks xD).

    Meowth City ♥ Shipper ♥ Staff Member Moderator

    Chibi_Muffin and Elmi101, both of you and your claims have been added to the list. Thanks for joining.

    @CyberBlaziken - It's okay, I don't mind the nickname part so much, as long as the rest of the form is completed so I'll let that slide. But thanks Kai for looking out for the club and for signing the petition :D Sorry about your laptop and if it's too troublesome to come on to the club that often, then I will understand. I'll look forward to those banners.


    Yeah, I have to agree that Apollo Justice is probably the weakest game in the series in my personal opinion. However, I have mixed opinions on the older Ema. I did dislike her attitude when she came into case two, but I later began to warm up to her character by the next case. Yay, Snackaroos. So yeah, I do perfer the younger Ema (Strange coincidence - I just finished playing the Rises from the Ashes case)

    @Elmi101 - I really enjoyed that case with the Murder at Kurain Village. That is one of my favourites because of introduction of the Magatama. I love Klavier Gavin too, but I do prefer Edgeworth and Franziska the most out of the prosecutors [I surprised no one has claimed Edgey O.O]. Btw, thanks for the FR - I accepted.
  15. 3lmi

    3lmi pimping aint easy

    Magatama was a great game mechanic, and I was so sad when they took it out in AJ. Apollo Justice had Perceive and Forensic Science (with Ema :]) so it kinda of worked.

    I am also surprised no one claimed Edgey too, but I have a good feeling a new member will claim him in the future.
  16. @MiGo

    @MiGo Scouting Legion

    Oh I loved that perceive ability in Apollo Justice!

    Although that game was probably the weakest of the series, I still love it XP

    Hey does anyone have a favorite breakdown in Ace Attorney? I find Daryan's funny the way he uses his hair XD
  17. 3lmi

    3lmi pimping aint easy

    Dahlia's breakdown or evil face scared the sh*t out of me the first time I played through it....

    Furio Tigre also had a funny one, and that guy with the Scarf in the Lost Turnabout with Maggey's first appearance.
  18. Meowth City

    Meowth City ♥ Shipper ♥ Staff Member Moderator

    Yep, I was a little disappointed when they took out the Magatama in AJ. However, I did like the Perceive ability a lot and the forensic parts with Ema. Yeah, I still loved that game but not as much as the others.

    Oh, how to choose?

    Yeah, I agree on that one. Totally freaky. Amazing case, that one.

    @Everyone who sent friend requests: thanks for them. I'm usually quite busy, so I will try to talk here for any AA stuff and VM/PM you for other things. Thanks again. And let's keep this club running.

    A personal favourite breakdown of mine is Sahwit's. It's so funny, I guess Phoenix had 'toupee' for accusing him. =P The first case killers always get some good breakdowns... but not necessarily in the first case. =D All of them are cool though. Except maybe White. I dunno, it's just that the breakdown seems okay for any killer, but the character himself seems so major (HE KILLED MIA FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!) that I expected something more.

    Speaking of which, I have a couple of questions...

    What are your favourite cases?

    I quite like Rise from the Ashes, since it has EMA, as well as lots of other awesome characters - including, no, especially the true culprit. There's also forensics, which I love. The Stolen Turnabout is also cool because it's so weird, and it has one of my favourite defendants in it!

    Who are your favourite/least favourite characters?

    I like Ema, Gumshoe, Maggey, Phoenix, Maya, Pearl, Edgeworth, Kay, the Judge, Franziska, Godot, Ron, Colias, Jake, Mike, Larry, Lotta, Will, Rhoda, <Insert the three major AAI2 characters in here>, Lang... I LIKE THEM ALL. EVEN THE KILLERS, I LOVE TO HATE THEM.

    Except Zinc, Spark, Sal and Hotti. Ugh. So creepy. T_T Yes, I know I haven't played AJ, but I still hate him, because the AJ characters are okay, just not the PW characters IN AJ.

    Guilty or Not Guilty? (You know what I'm talking about)

    Always Guilty. It's right, it's justice, I spoiled myself, and besides, you'd know anyway that the outcome of guilty would NEVER happen.

    Question to the owners/co-owners: Are spoilers okay or banned, or in spoiler tags, or what? And is any AAI2 discussion allowed? Because I might discuss some characters (nothing spoilery, literally about the first three released) if it is allowed.
  20. Meowth City

    Meowth City ♥ Shipper ♥ Staff Member Moderator

    Spoilers are allowed, as long as you place any MAJOR SPOILERS in a spoiler tag. While the majority of members here may have played most of the games, we must be careful, in case some members haven't. Yes, AAI2 is allowed to be discussed as well as the Prof. Layton crossover. So feel free to discuss as much as you want C:

    ... will answer some of those questions later when I get more time.
