Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is an enhanced port of Gyakuten Saiban. This version features all of the cases from the Game Boy Advance release, with the addition of a fifth case, which is as long as the four previous cases put together. The fifth case makes extensive use of the DS' special features, such as the microphone and the ability to examine inventory in 3D using the stylus.

1001 Video Games

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.


Due to issues regarding distribution rights between Nintendo Australia and THQ, Australia didn't see the release of the game until well after the sequel was available overseas, and a year after the European release.

Japanese version

The Japanese version of the iPhone port requires a constant connection to the Internet, unlike its western counterpart.
