■ Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney
Takes place seven years after the third mainline game, Trials, and Tribulations. Phoenix Wright, the main character of previous titles in the series, has been stripped of his attorney’s badge, and Apollo Justice, an up-and-coming attorney, becomes his apprentice, working with Phoenix’s adopted daughter Trucy on four cases.
Apollo has a special ability in this game called Perceive, where through his bracelet, he can tell when someone is lying by slowly reading their gestures as they talk.
■ Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies
Set a year after Apollo Justice, in a time when the court system has entered a dark era of false charges and fabricated evidence, caused in part by the event that led to Phoenix being unjustly disbarred.
The player takes the roles of three defense attorneys Phoenix Wright, Apollo Justice, and a brand-new character named Athena Cykes, who through her trusty partner Widget, is able to perceive witness emotions from their testimonies and get to the truth of the case.
■ Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice
Spirit of Justice continues the investigation and courtroom gameplay of its predecessors, in which players take the role of the defense attorneys Phoenix Wright, Apollo Justice, and Athena Cykes, and try to defend their clients.
However, this time, our story takes Phoenix Wright to the land of Khura’in, a land where due to a decree that prevents defense attorneys from acting in defense of their victims, has caused many to fall guilty to jail over false charges. Meanwhile, Apollo and Athena remain in their home country and cases alternate between the two.
