Plot Synopsis by AsianWiki Staff ©
Set sometime in the near future, Attorney Phoenix Wright (Hiroki Narimiya) goes up against childhood friend and now top prosector Miles Edgeworth (Takumi Saito) over the guilt or innocence of client Maya Fey (Mirei Kiritani). The legal system allows for only 3 days of trial before the judge makes a decision. Intense pressure mounts on both sides as both men must use their power of persuasion and presentation to sway the judge.
After the trial, Attorney Phoenix Wright learns that Miles Edgeworth himself has been arrested for murder. Phoenix Wright decides to defend his longtime friend and learns that his opponent is none other than Von Karma (Ryo Ishibashi). Von Karma is a legendary prosecutor who has never lost a court case in over 40 years of work! Meanwhile, a 15-year-old mystery is about to be solved by Attorney Phoenix Wright ...
- Based on the Nintendo Game Boy video game "Gyakuten Saiban" (known outside of Japan as "Ace Attorney" or "Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney").
