Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy

Yesterday, the latest official blog post for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy went live, the second one from Shu Takumi (creator of the series). This time, he came to talk about how he wrote the story of the first 3 games in the series!

Here’s an excerpt about how he nearly used all of his ideas in the first game, and didn’t have many left for the second one:

The decision to make a sequel was handed down to us around the time we were wrapping up the first game. In fact, we were told, “Why not make it a trilogy?” This… really stressed me out, personally, because I’d just spent all of my ideas on the first game. But a part of me also wanted to take advantage of this great opportunity and write a new story, so for the second game, I focused my attention on that which I had mostly left on the back burner in the first game: the dramatic elements. I wrote a narrative centered around a community that’s steeped in an ancient tradition, and another story about a ragtag bunch of circus performers who come together as a troupe in the end. It was through tales like these, in addition to each case’s big mystery, that I was able to give the characters more depth and the second game’s stories a different feel from the first game.
