Ace Attorney

Synopsis: This movie is based on the second and fourth cases in the popular video game Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. The plot follows Phoenix Wright, a novice lawyer, who faces off against expert prosecutor Miles Edgeworth, who had a perfect win record. He defends Maya Fey, the sister of his deceased mentor, Mia Fey. The court system of the time dictates that the trial can only convene for a total of three days before a verdict must be reached. In the second case, Miles is charged with murder, and it is up to Phoenix to defend him against the best prosecutor of all time, as well as Miles' mentor, Manfred Von Karma, who has not lost a case in forty years! In order to resolve this case, Phoenix must look beyond the drama of the court room and search for clues left by Mia on a 15 years old case, the DL-6.

The one who shot me was

The one

who killed me was...




Ace Attorney

This clock

has been set 2 hours late

therefore, your testimony

that you left the victim's room at two

is clearly questionable.

You can't tell whether the clock was set late

on the day of the incident.

That's true


Do not rise from your seat Mr. Butz!

Attorney Wright

Of course,

as you may know

The number of criminal cases is now

There is always a big parade of criminals in the court

If one were to hesitate like you

There would be no point in adopting the Bench Trial System -

A system where, over three days, a defense attorney and prosecutor face each other in an open court, to determine the defendant's guilt


It's over...


We already know that you,

wearing this 'Steel Samurai' costume, headed to studio 1.

The script writer very clearly testified

when we dropped hints

that you are trying to get the script writer fired.

what are you talking about?

I've never said such a thing

All i did was let them know my personal view

the script writer spilled everything

shut your mouth!

Are such dirty tactics allowed?!

Prosecutor Edgeworth!

this.... this..

such an absurd method

cannot be accepted!!

My methods do not conflict with the law


I'll settle this matter quickly

this is the one thing

that should be prioritized in ????


Please wait!

Let's discuss this matter thoroughly

There are still 3 days left in the hearing.


The verdict..



The victim had just returned home to Japan

the day before the incident.

The time difference between Japan and New York is 14 hours

When you look at a clock, it appears as 2 hours.

The victim did not change his clock

Your Honor

Any further discussion is a waste of time.

Please give your verdict right away

The verdict for Mr. Larry Butz

Not Guilty.

Hey hey hey hey...

It's a different guy

No no no!

I'm the guy who won the 'not guilty' verdict,

Larry Butz

Don't you have to do an interview?

huh? huh? wait!!

Mr. Camera man!

here roll the tape!!

This is a special moment !

Hey stop it!

What is that?!

- Does that look like a toy to you? which newspaper are you from??

- This is a court! Quiet down!

- You're in court! shut up!!

Whatchu lookin' at?!!


It's Butz!?


Mr. Wright

you ignorin' me?!


Congrats on the not guilty verdict

ah.. um..

how can i say this..

All this, everything

i owe it to you Mia

I will never forget it


I'm the attorney!

But we would've lost if Mia didn't show up.

That's true.


Wait just a sec

I want you to have this!

What is it?

beep beep

I think it's about 11:25


That's stupid

It's a clock

oh you, making this useless thing

He's selling them in his own shop

Say if you don't need it

Shut up!

This right here,

is not just any ordinary clock!

it has the ability to think with you in times of trouble

When you ask it for answers

then BOONG!

Come the answers...

It's that kind of system!

Stop trying to push such absurd systems

Well then here


extra edition-

It's extra-



That was outstanding Edgeworth.

Prosecutor Edgeworth turns the tables and wins the case

The golden boy of Prosecution redeems his reputation

Prosecutor Edgeworth turns the tables and wins the case

The golden boy of Prosecution redeems his reputation

Prosecutor Edgeworth turns the tables and wins the case

The golden boy of Prosecution redeems his reputation

Never thought he'd win such a difficult case

I heard you won the case again

Heard it was a trial with not enough evidence...
