Are you a bad enough dude to
Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney features a red, spiky haired defense lawyer, now in 3D!
Unused Character Sprites
A damage animation for young Klavier. While this animation is used with his older, 2026 counterpart, this animation never plays for young, 2019 Klavier.
Stored among the rest of flashback Wright's sprites are some unedited sprites from the original game. These sprites were likely left out of the remastering process because they would've had no use in this game; the sprites on the right of the sheet were used in the first game's beginning case when Sahwit threw his toupée, and the heart-eyed sprites were unused in the original game.
A sprite for Wright in his despair pose. Like his other unused sprites, this sprite hasn't been touched up and is the same as it was in the original game.
Present on Romein LeTouse's dying sprites is Japanese text that translates to LeTouse 1.625 times. As the note implies, LeTouse's remastered sprites are at a 1.625 scale from their original, DS version.
A background drawing of where the defense's co-consel would stand in the 2019 courtroom variant. Because Phoenix Wright has no co-counsel in Turnabout Succession, this background is never used.
Upload them? Maybe make a subpage because there's 100+ of these.
Almost every full-screen piece of art in this game still has its original DS version present. This includes (but isn't limited to) area drawings, evidence pictures, and some cutscene images.
Two choice bubbles that read dummy are present among Turnabout Corner's graphics. The Japanese versions of this graphic translate to Have the accused testify and Don't let the accused testify. In the final game, the player is given no such choice.
Game Mode Labels
Small labels that, in order, read Move, Examine, Present, Talk, Luminol, Matching, and Video. In early versions of the Ace Attorney DS port, the current game mode would be shown at the top left corner of the bottom screen. In the final build, this feature was cut, but the graphics for it still remained. These sprites still remain in this port, untouched from their DS days.
Get the rest
For some strange reason, a variety of dummy and placeholder images are present in the game's files. Many of these are from Ace Attorney Trilogy, which is what this remaster was based on, but a few new ones are present.
An image that contains a Japanese character surrounded by a circle. The Japanese character translates to temporary. This image was also present in the original game.
Three dummy images that seem to be new to this release. They all follow the same style, white text on a blue background. The Item Icon and Note boxes follow the same format as item icons and profiles found in the court record, while the image with Japanese text follows the same format as other choice bubbles.
Two pieces of music from the original DS release of the game are still present.
- BGM53.dspadpcm.bcstm is Investigation ~ Opening 2001 from the first Ace Attorney game. Given that the fourth case reuses a lot of music from it, this was most likely planned to be used there, too.
