I took a pretty long break from Ace Attorney-related material, so unfortunately I wasn't available to help playtest anything further than Turnabout Recovery. Yet here I am, at the end of this journey after finishing the last case, and what a ride it was. Brilliant twists all around, great characters, great... everything, really (Ok, so I never really liked that particular Edgeworth sprite especially for the bench, but that's hardly your fault and completely subject to opinion but I needed to get it out there). The last case in particular really brings everything together and wraps it up nicely. And the character names are brilliant and feel properly AA-themed. Add to the fact that it's a complete set of cases that have been complete, something that I personally find exceedingly rare (Off the top of my head, I can count one other)? Truly impressive.

Spoiler : Before the Dawn :
TIME PARADOX! Seriously though, going back to part 2 after getting the safe code in part 4, was it Waters coming back in for Round Dos? And there's no mention of Ema, did she get KOed too?


Spoiler : Chance/Before the Dawn :
Defending Shelly de Killer was brilliant and I loved everything about it. The little "whoops" added to his profile in BtD is hilarious to boot. One question: I'm assuming that Crooke was sent by Mags/Rivales to defend him to let him take the fall, like he did with Dee's case in OG-4? Or was it simply coincidence?


Spoiler : Regrets/Before the Dawn/Epilogue :
Personally, Crooke's tale as shown in Turnabout Regrets and the effect it had on him for the next year is what really touched me, and the detail about him trying to find Faith after everything is over with is great. In fact, it was something I was really hoping to see in the epilogue, and I was not disappointed.

And it's about damn time the wonder siblings found out that they were related. Even if I think Phoenix would probably get some crap from Thalassa for telling them before she was ready (sounds to me like she's just afraid at this point).

Whoops, I accidentally fell off the face of the earth there for a moment.

Seriously though, I'm really thankful for the interest that's being shown in my work and I'm glad people are having fun with it. I've just moved to a new town and started a new job so things have been a little hectic recently. Still, it's about time I started responding to people here.

Ah, good catch. Should be fixed.

I've added all the custom music used to the credits section of each case. Not sure why I hadn't done that already, but hopefully that helps.

The implication is yes for both your questions. I'll admit, it's at this point that Waters' plan becomes considerably less practical. But the bad ending is really just an easter egg. I wouldn't think too hard about it.

Yep, Crooke is really working on behalf of the syndicate at this point meaning Shelly's paranoia was right on the money.

Agreed. It's why I threw in the "We've been thinking about telling you..." line to imply that the two had already discussed it. Still, I feel like Phoenix probably would have held out a bit longer had Athena not called him out.

Soooo, I'm not sure why but I recently noticed the audio that I was hosting on Instaudio has stopped working. Looking back, none of the custom music is loading in any of my cases, despite the fact that it's still up on the site and works fine on Instaudio. Can anyone else confirm if the music refuses to load for them too?

If the problem doesn't fix itself this week I'll have to re-host all the custom music, which is frankly gonna be a huge pain but what can ya do I guess. Apologies if this has intruded on anyone who might have been playing through the series.

The same happens to me, too. I don't know why.

I can confirm that there are a number of broken sounds in the loading bar for this case.
I cannot confirm which sounds those are because I've never played these before (though I really should get on it already).

After a few hours and having to complete a million and one captcha tests to re-download all of my old audio files, I've got all of the audio re-hosted on dropbox. Hopefully it should work for you all now, TTAT should also be fixed. Again, apologies for the downtime. Should anyone notice any missing or out of place audio please let me know.

At least now I can get back to the new case I was working on before everything broke...

I'm sorry I didn't think to have a stream of consciousness while playing this, because wew, what a ride. Instead, here's some scattered thoughts after-the-fact:

Spoiler : Entire series spoilers :
I was 1000% sure Ian Gard was gonna be the mastermind going into the final parts of the final case. I was thinking "WATERS GOT A TAN AND BECAME A GUARD."

I appreciated the Zero Escape references in the music/easter egg/walkthrough.

I realized Elvis was going to be the killer in the 1st case the moment I saw he had entered the evidence room before the murder. Still a fun case, though.

Every element of the de Killer inclusion was brilliant and fun.

Had to use the walk-through an increasing amount as the cases went by, which means your difficulty curve is probably spot-on. None of the contradictions seemed too out-there.

I was predicting that Waters was gonna be alive when it said the apartment used to be his, and I doubled-down as soon as I saw his file not having the "X" on it. I'm actually kinda surprised none of the other characters brought it up. Does that mean that, because Mags had a suspicion that Waters wasn't dead, that he never X'd him out? That's some great attention to detail, especially for something that isn't even used for a contradiction. Even though I was predicting it, the actual reveal still shocked me. Great fun.

Shay Dee and Edward Crooke are excellent characters, and I hope we can see more of them someday.


For real, fantastic series. Really feels like a full-fledged 2D addition to the canon games. I had so many moments of legitimate investment and ear-to-ear grinning that I'm struggling to keep track. I feel lucky I came back to this site right after you finished this series and cleaned it up. Plowing through it was a great use of three evenings.
