[edit] Release Information

This was the first game in the series to be created from the ground upwards for the Nintendo DS. As a result, the game makes a greater use of the touch screen and microphone capabilities of the hardware.

A limited special edition of the game was released in Japan where, along with the game, also included in the pack was an animation DVD, an Ace Attorney encyclopaedia (on a DS cartridge) and a set of headphones.

[edit] Story

This game is the 4th in the series, although chronologically it would be the 5th, and takes place roughly 7 years after the events of Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations, although some portions of the last case happen roughly 6 months after. Things have changed greatly since then and a new defense attorney, Apollo Justice, takes the role as the protagonist.
