[1.01] Introduction

Welcome to the first spin off game of the Ace Attorney series, Ace 
Attorney Investigations, starring the one of the stars of the game, Miles 
Edgeworth. Basically, you are out of the courtroom, and you need to solve
the case out in the field. Basically, it is the investigations that the 
police do before the leadup to the trial, in which you are so familiar with.

The main differences between this game and the previous Ace Attorney games,
that is, Phoenix Wright, Justice For All, Trials and Tribulations, and 
Apollo Justice is that there is no courtroom drama. But you still have your
fair share of objections. It is just as the name suggests, you need to 
investigate the crime, and solve it. It is quite elementary. So lets get
started as Prosecutor Miles Edgeworth.

[2.01] Day One - Investigation, Part 1

* Date -  March 14, 1:16 AM *
*                           *
* Location - ?????????      *

Watch the cutscene, and of course, we watch a murder take place. Cannot have
a not-guilty verdict? Sounds like the old Edgeworth. Well, a murder has been
committed, and now, we will find out where. 

* Date - March 14, 2:05 AM         *
*                                  *
* Location - Prosecutor's Building *
*            12th Floor Hallway    *

Welcome back Mr Miles Edgeworth. As you can see already, you will be 
controlling Edgeworth, so you will control his movements, but more on that
later. The door is unlocked. That isn't good. 

As you enter the room, you will see that a murder has taken place, in the
Prosecutor's Building? In Edgeworth's Office? Oh dear. And someone sneaks
behind Edgeworth, shooting off a round, and out he goes. Looks like we need
to get investigating. Edgeworth will introduce himself, as usual, so lets
get start.

* Date - March 14, 2:56 AM            *
*                                     *
* Location - High Prosecutors' Office *
*            Room 1202                *

Well, the police have arrived, and the Forensics guy does look a little pansy
with his pose. And in comes Detective Dick Gumshoe, a series favourite, well,
more comic relief than anything. The crime has been committed in Edgeworth's
Office, so he is going to do his best to solve it. 

After a small talk, you will get your first piece of Logic. Logic is basically
pieces of important information, which seem unrelated at first, but if you
stick it together, you will notice that putting them together will lead to
new leads and new information. The game does a good job of explaining this,
well, it would need to. Anyway, in comes the logic.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Crime Scene: My Office
  -> Is it really coincidence that the murder took place in my office?

The reason this piece of information is important is because that the key
for the office only is available to one person, the prosecutor. Well, that
seems important enough to warrant another piece of logic.

 - New Logic Received - 

 The Office Key
  -> For security reasons, this office's door has a lock built into it. 

Now, you can use the logic screen, and link those pieces of information
together. Select both of them and use Connect. Well, those two fit together
because of the office key. Because of the lock, it could not be a 
coincidence, and because of this, we get a new clue.

 - New Logic Received -

 The Killer's Goal
  -> Why did this happen in my office. What was the killer after?

After that, you will notice the green bar. Think of that as the health
bar. For every wrong connection of logic, and later on, presenting bad
evidence, it will dip into that bar. For previous players of Phoenix Wright
games, it is the bar you will get at trials. Except this time, you will
get more life than normal. With that, we start an actual investigation. 


 High Prosecutors' Offices
 Room 1202

Well, with this, you will get access to investigation. Use the arrow keys to
move around, and if you are lost, you can talk to Gumshoe to help you out,
using the Partner button, but that isn't necessary. 

For starters, lets examine that gun. Gumshoe points out that this gun is the
same model as that issued to police officers, so this is the same gun used
by detectives. Interesting.

 - New Logic Received - 

  -> Found at the crime scene, it's the same model as those used by precinct

Now, lets investigate the body, well, the crime scene. Edgeworth will not
stop till he examines every nook and cranny. For now, examine the wallet
that is next to the victim's hand. Well, now it gets interesting, it is a 
police officer's badge. Detective Buddy Faith's badge. That will explain the
weapon. And it will add to your logic.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Victim Was a Detective
  -> According to his badge and ID, Buddy Faith was a precinct detective.

With this, Edgeworth will mention that he has several pieces of information
and you should link them together, but not yet. Examine the body. With this,
this will give you a new piece of evidence.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Crime Scene Notes
  -> Bullet went clean through the victim's abdoman. The body was found at 
     around 2:05 AM.

With this, Edgeworth will teach you how to use the Organizer that he has, 
so make note of that. Back on the scene, examine the files that have fallen
to the ground. You will get another piece of logic for this.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Signs of a Struggle
  -> My files are a mess, pointing to a struggle between the victim and the

With that, Gumshoe has a talk about the files, and no, he really doesn't have 
a life, seriously, cleaning an office. Now, we need to start connecting the
logic together, so we can get new clues as to what is going on. What you
should do is connect Victim Was a Detective with the Revolver. With this,
Gumshoe will check the victim one more time for a gun. And what do you know, 
the Detective has a gun holster, but not gun.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Victim's Revolver
  -> It can be assumed that this gun is the murder weapon. It was issued 
     to the victim.

Gumshoe will insist that you will need to investigate the evidence more
carefully, so examine the revolver of the gun, where the rounds are stored.
With this, you will find that one a single bullet was expended, well, shot.
That is quite interesting. With this, Prosecutor Jacques Portsman. Well,
because Gumshoe is the only one with the key, he will blame Gumshoe for the
murder of his friend Jim, well Buddy Faith. 

Well, with his introduction, he will summon over the Forsenics guy, so 
at this point, you can move over to examine the jacket that the intruder
nearly shot down. With this, there is a CONTRADICTION!!!!! Well, the jacket
presents a contradiction with the evidence at hand. 

Now, you need to point to the spot that contains the contradiction. That is
the bullethole on the frame. Now, the evidence that contradicts it? The 
revolver. That revolver only fired a single bullet, yet at least two bullets
were fired, one to kill the victim, another to shoot down the frame. Eureka.
The contradiction is uncovered.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Another Handgun
  -> Other than the victim's gun that I found, could there be another gun in
     play here?

With this, Gumshoe will notice that there is a secret safe behind the 
famed jacket. Oh no, there isn't any money in there, well that is all Gumshoe
cares about anyway, seeing that he has no money anyway. 

 - New Evidence Received -

 Secret Safe
  -> Each prosecutor has one in their office. Only they know of them. Trial
     evidence use.

Now, it is time to examine the safe. The only thing that is interesting is
the keypad. See that all of it is dusty, except the keypad. Examine it. The
forensics officer will note that the keypad is wiped clean. That is strange

 - New Logic Received - 

 Wiped Fingerprints
  -> All of the fingerprints on this have been wiped clean off. 

With this, Edgeworth will note that you have gathered all the evidence that
you can, now, you need to use your Logic in order to solve all the problems
that you have. The first tihng is to link the Killer's Goal with the Wiped
Fingerprints. It seems that if the killer was after something, it would be
something in the same

 - New Logic Received - 

 Motive: Theft (?)
  -> The culprit tried to open my safe. Was the killer's motive theft?

With this new piece of logic, link it immediately with Signs of a Struggle.
It fits together, the files weren't on the floor on purpose, they were there
because the intruder was looking for something. With that, Gumshoe will put
the files back to normal, so lets have a look at the real crime scene.

Gumshoe does a good job, well, something he is good at, but there is 
something wrong with this picture. From where the victim would have been
to be been shot, point out the folder with the bullethole in it. That is 
the problem. It contradicts with the Crime Scene Notes that you have on

Now, the faulty assumption. It isn't the position of the body or the 
handprints that is the issue, it is the order of the files. If the
files were rearranged in the proper 0 to 3 numbering, it will be a proper
crime scene. With this, that means that the files has been rearranged 
twice, once before and after the murder. That isn't right, and it seems

 - New Logic Received - 

 Files in Disarray
  -> The culprit re-arranged my files twice, once before and once after the
     murder. Why?

With this, you need to start looking for another problem. The binders to
the bottom right hand side corner of the screen, the one with blood on 
them. Oh dear, it seems to spell out Gumshoe on it. It also seems that a
binder is missing from the collection.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Stolen File
  -> One of the files that were written upon in blood was stolen by the 

With this last piece of evidence, this part of the investigation is 

[2.02] Day One - Questioning, Part 1

Portsman will now argue that Gumshoe is the killer. Well, from the cutscene
in the beginning, we all know who the real killer is. Anyway, lets hear his
argument. This is very similar to Cross Examination in the Phoenix Wright
games, basically, the opposing side will present an argument and you will
need to use your evidence to debunk him.

There are two ways to continue forwards in an argument. You can either 
present evidence that you have that contradicts what the other party has
said, or you can press them for more information, that either incriminates
themself or presents more information that you can use. 

Now, lets hear Portsman's argument. 

 - Mr. Portsman's Logic - 

 - Detective Gumshoe. You stole Jim's gun from him and shot him dead.

 - Further, you messed up the files to make it look like you had committed
   theft instead. 

 - That's when you moved Jim's body that was sitting in front of the 

 - But thanks to that, you didn't notice the bloody letters his body was

 - And it will be by his final words that you will be brought to justice.

Well, it is obvious where the contradiction is. At his fourth point, present
the Stolen File as evidence. If Gumshoe stole the file, how would he not
notice the nice blood stain on the folder? As clueless as he is, he isn't
all that thick. Of course, Portsman would say that it could have been stolen
before the murder, but that is unlikely, because there would have been a 
problem writing out Gumshoe's name. And with that, HEADSHOT. But he doesn't
seem flustered.

However, it turns out that Gumshoe isn't the only person with access to the
room, the security guard has the Master Key for the room. And look who turns
up, Maggey Byrde. She does seem to have a lot of bad luck around her, how
many times did Phoenix save her? Twice? Portsman will now say that she was
the one who committed the crime. That guy just wants to find someone to blame.
Well, time to cross-examine again.

 - Reasons for Suspicion - 

 - It's pretty obvious that Ms. Byrde snuck into your room using the master

 - I mean, if Detective Gumshoe isn't the one who opened the door...

 - ... then that leaves only Ms. Byrde as our prime suspect. 

 - On top of which, she knows our good detective, doesn't she?

 - Making it all the more probable that she was the one who faked the dying

Well, there isn't a contradiction in this statement yet, so you will need
to press for more information. It will also add new evidence into your

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Master Key
  -> This can open every office door. Its use is controlled by security staff.

Anyway, lets start pressing for information. With your Rebuttal, start by 
pressing the first statement. He seems eager to say Maggey opened that 
door, but where is his proof besides the master key? Hmmm, you will want to
hear the more details, where she says that the key went missing at about 1AM. 
Anyway, with this, Portsman will give a new line of argument, which is 
exactly what you need.

 - Her intent? From the messed-up shelves to the wiped-down safe, I'd say

Is there a problem here? Yes, the problem is the safe. How can a security
guard know about a safe that only the prosecutors know about? That doesn't
seem right, so present it. Again, another HEADSHOT. Portsman brings up the
point that it is possible that a prosecutor is the murderer. Interesting

Now Portsman will say that Jim was a thief, since he knew about the secret
safe, and that Maggey shot him in self-defence. With this crappy conclusion,
he kicks you out of HIS crime scene, and into the Hallway. Lets make short
work of this. 

                                                              To be continued.

[2.03] Day One - Investigation, Part 2

* Date - March 14, 4:18 AM         *
*                                  *
* Location - Prosecutor's Building *
*            12th Floor Hallway    *

Well, you've been kicked out of your own office. How sad. Well, with you,
Gumshoe and Maggey in the hallway, time to start your investigation.


 Prosecutor's Building
 12th Flooor Hallway

Anyway, lets start by talking to Maggey. She is important to this case, 
despite her horrendiously bad luck. What you want to do is to present the 
Master Key to her. She will say that the key was missing between 1AM and 2:30
AM. So, that's a new piece of logic for you.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Master Key was Stolen
  -> This key went missing from approximately 1 AM until 2:30 AM

She will also mention that she used her master key. What for? It turns
out she used it to open the door for a prosecutor. A certain prosecutor. 
Portsman. This is getting interesting. Ask her about that, and she mentions
that she used the master key between 12 AM and 1:30 AM for the prosecutor.

 - New Logic Received -

 Used the Master Key
  -> This key was used to unlock and lock Portsman's office at 12 AM and 
     1:30 AM

Now there is a problem. Do you see the problem? How can the key have been
used between 1 to 1:30 AM when it went missing after 1 AM? Use your logic
to connect this problem. Maggey will mention that she didn't actually lock
Portsman's door, because she lacked the master key. Well, that gives you
a new piece of evidence.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Mr. Portsman's Office
  -> Ms. Byrde unlocked the door, but the master key was stolen, so she 
     could not lock it up.

Now, we are done with her, so head over to the couch and examine it. What
is that under the right corner of the couch. It's the Stolen File. It seems
to have a few pages missing from it. 

 - Evidence Updated -

 Stolen 0-Series File
  -> Pages pertaining to a case tried 10 years ago by my predecessor are

Now, head over to Portsman's Door, looking at Winston Payne as he
stands there. What is he doing so early in the morning, losing another
trial to a "rookie"? Now, you need to point out a contradiction here. 
The doorknob will contradict with the door you have in evidence, Maggey
said she didn't lock the door, so it should be unlocked, but it isn't. 

Now, you need to examine on little thing that will lead you to the 
answer. Examine the doorknob, you can use it to lift prints, and if 
Maggey indeed open the door, her prints should be on it. But they aren't,
so present her when prompted to say whose prints are missing. 

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Mr. Portsman Door
  -> Ms. Bryde says she unlocked this door, but her prints were not
     found on the doorknob.

Well, with this, Edgeworth will decide to look at the base of the door.
First things first, examine that note that is sticking out from under the
door. It appears to be a note left from the victim to Portsman, so you
have that added to evidence.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Note Left by Victim
  -> Found under the door, for the absent Portsman. Touch the Check 
     button for details.

  -> I brought the 3 pieces of evidence by, just like we talked about on the
     phone, but it looks like you're out. Guess I'll catch up to you later.


Well, this is interesting, but there are still more clues that you need to
gather. Select the basketball hoop. The position of the hoop is a little
off, so that will also be added to your evidence, it seems useless doesn't

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Basketball Hoop
  -> It's sitting in front of Portsman's office. There are signs that it's 
     been moved.

Now, the next thing that you need to inspect, your own office door. Examine
the doorknob, and the forsenics officer will point out that there are no
prints on the door, they've been wiped clean. Interesting. Now, we need to
confront Portsman. Investigation Over.

Walk in and Gumshoe gets hit with a binder. Great start. Portsman talks the
talk, but can he walk the walk? No, he can't. 

 - Mr. Portsman's Rebuttal - 

 - I have no idea what sort of hair-brained idea you have in mind, but ...

 - ... there's a mountain of evidence that points away from me being the

 - Besides, how, may I ask, do you propose I unlocked your door and got in

 - Look, I feel bad doing this to you, but I've got work to do, so we're 
   done here.

Now, what is the problem with this testimony? How did he get in. Present the
Master Key at the third statement. That is the easiest way to shut him up,
and we get a cool Edgeworth OBJECTION!

He didn't lay a finger on the key, and he is correct, Maggey is the one who
used the key, so present her at the person who used it. Now, Edgeworth will
accuse him of tricking Maggey into opening his door instead, by changing the
number plate of the door, and what else. Present the Basketball Hoop here, it
is obvious because it has shown signs that it has been moved.

Now, he will shrug that off as baseless conjecture. Sure, he is in a tight
spot and he's running for the hills. Nice try. Not nice enough though.

 - Conjecture's Rebuttal - 

 - Now you're just spouting nonsense

 - I had the girl open my office door.

 - After that, I was in my room the entire time.

 - You don't have a single reason to suspect me.

He doesn't make it hard for you. If he had the girl open is office door, 
where are her finger prints on the door? They aren't there, so present Mr.
Portsman's Door at this point. This should shut him up a little. Another 
HEADSHOT for Edgeworth. Man, this guy must have a real flexible back. 

He claims that he was in the room for the entire time, but we have evidence
that he is lying. Present the Note Left by Victim here. Ha, another HEADSHOT
to Edgeworth, this guy really does have a good back. With that chatter, he
finds something funny. He will wriggle out of this by saying that he 
regularly cleans the prints off the door, and that the note could have been
left in the evening, whilst he wasn't there. Interesting. 

Now, he will mention that he has an airtight alibi. Oh boy, this doesn't
sound good.

 - Portsman's Alibi - 

 - If memory serves, you came back to this office at around 2 AM, correct?

 - And it was then that you had that unfortunate confrontation at gunpoint 
   with the culprit.

 - But at exactly that time, I was down in Criminal Affairs!

 - As around. I'm sure the other detectives will coorborate my story. It's 
   the perfect alibi!

Off goes Gumshoe and it does seem to hold up. We cannot fail at this point
in time. Press all the statements, and there isn't any problems with it, 
this isn't good, we can't let him slide now. We are so close. Now, we need
to use some logic to solve this case.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Mr. Portsman's Alibi
  -> The intruder I met could not have been Portsman. Then who could it have

Now, logic time. Now, match Portsman's Alibi with the another Handgun logic
piece. If it isn't Portsman who is the intruder who faced Edgeworth, then
that makes sense with the theory of the two guns, Portsman is one, and the
other intruder is the other. Therefore, there has to have been another

 - New Logic Received -

 Another Visitor
  -> Maybe the victim and his killer weren't the only visitors to my office

Now, join this with the Files in Disarray piece, and it will all fit. Why
where the files rearranged twice? Because there were two seperate intruders.
That makes sense. With this, Edgeworth seems to have Portsman in a hole, a
deep one. Well, he isn't dead just yet, he doesn't want to give up. Too bad,
lets nail it shut. 

 - Portsman's Alibi, Part 2 - 

 - That thief you ran into should be your real suspect, wouldn't you say?

 - We should be out there looking for that thief right now. They might 
   still be nearby.

 - I hate to repeat myself, but as I've already said, I was training in my

 - And when Jim came to deliver some evidence to me, I was down at Criminal

 - So I can't be expected to know what happened around here after I left.

Hmm, he is lying, but where? I suggest you press the fourth argument. He
mentions that Jim brought over two pieces of evidence, a gun and a pendant.
Something is not right, so we get this new piece of information.

 - He brought me two items, a gun and a pendant, that are related to 
   yesterday's case.

Finally, we have that breakthrough. He made the crack, because he said two
items, but what did Buddy's note say? It said that there were THREE pieces
of evidence, therefore, Portsman is lying through his teeth here, so lets
finish him off. Heh, Edgeworth knows the You Fail line well. 

Now, with Gumshoe to pat him down from head to toe, there is no where for
Portsman to run. And what does Gumshoe find? A video. Examine the video. It
is related to the KG-8 case, according to the label, but that isn't 
important. Look on the other side, the bottom side, of this tape. See that
blood there. I guess that isn't meant to be here, so point it out. 

That blood belongs to Detective Faith. Anyway, watch him chew that gold
medal of his into golden dust, and then shallow it. Well, he is doomed 

* Date - March 14, 5:47 AM            *

* Location - High Prosecutor's Office *
*           Room 1202                 *

Portsman's has been arrested, and rightfully so. And now we have finished
our first case, but a problem remains, who was that thief? We still need
to know what is the significance of the Stolen 0 Series Folder that went
missing, so present it to Gumshoe, whilst he points out that Portsman was
corrupt, doing anything for a guilty verdict. Sounds alike a few 
prosecutors that Phoenix Wright have demolished. 

The only clue we have to the robbery is the 3 legged raven, the sign of
the Great Thief, Yatagarasu. Apparently, this person steals evidence from
corrupt groups, and then leaks the corruption to the mass media, to bring
his own form of justice. Then why steal 10 year old case files? Well, that
is a mystery for another time. 

                                                                       THE END

[3.01] Day One - Questioning, Part 1

* Date - March 12, 6:13 AM             *
*                                      *
* Location - Flight I-390, First Floor *
*            Lounge                    *

Well, we start off on board an aircraft, and it seems Edgeworth is the
prime suspect in this murder case. A victim is found dead inside the elevator,
and the flight attendent promptly blames Edgeworth for the murder. Well,
to be fair, Edgeworth didn't have time to flee because the turbulence felt
like an earthquake. Well, we need to prove him innocent. 

* Date - March 12, 6:41 AM              *
*                                       *
* Location - Flight I-390, Second Floor *
*            First Class                *

Well, Edgeworth is now restrained in his seat, well, because, he is the
prime suspect in this case. Well, we need to review what evidence we have
for this case.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Travel Wallet
  -> Picked up off the floor in front of the elevator. It isn't mine, so 
     whose is it...?

 Crime Scene Notes
  -> Body found at 6:15 AM inside the elevator stopped at the first floor

 Sky Magazine
  -> Details meals, movies, and other services inside. Touch the Check 
     Buttom for details.

The flight attendent identifies herself as Rhoda Teneiro, and she tells the
whole plane that you're a murderer. Great. Oh dear, she says that she has
some incriminating evidence that you are the killer. This doesn't sound good,
and we've only just started. Where is the Phoenix sweat?

Now, Edgeworth well, pleads that he gets a chance to clear his name. Time
to start the questioning. 

 - What Ms. Teneiro Saw - 

 - I swear to tell the whole truth as a professional flight attendant. 

 - Unfortunately for you, Mr. Edgeworth, I am certain you are the killer.

 - The scene I saw in front of the elevator...

 - ... it was you, standing there, with fresh blood dripping off of the 
   murder weapon.

 - So, if you would please cooperate, we'll turn you over just as soon as
   we land.

Okay, we know for a fact that we don't have a murder weapon, what she must
have saw was Edgeworth picking up that Travel Wallet. So you will need to 
present that at the fourth statement. Also, it isn't blood, it is mere grape
juice, so to say that you are guilty of carrying the murder weapon is a bit
of a stretch. 

And well, we get a Hold It! What is this, a flight attendant turning into a
prosecutor? Well, she says that the wallet could carry something heavy. Yeah,
I really doubt that. Anyway, examine the wallet, and open the wallet to find,
well, a passport. But the problem is, it belongs to the victim. Oh, this is
going to be hard to explain away. 

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Mr. Hicks's Travel Wallet
  -> Picked up off the floor in front of the elevator. There is but a 
     passport inside. 

With this, she accuses you of stealing the wallet, as if a prosecutor needs
another passport. Anyway, she will accuse you again, well, this is a lot of
fun, isn't it?

 - What Ms. Teneiro Saw, Part 2 -

 - As you claimed, the murder weapon is not the travel wallet...

 - ... however, it IS something you stole from Mr. Hicks after you were done
   with the vile deed.

 - I find it hard to believe myself, but your motive was very simple...

 - You were out to steal Mr. Hick's money, weren't you?

So, you were to steal the wallet of the victim for the money. And she is so
damn cheerful about it. Well, it's teach her something, we have evidence that
this isn't the case. At the last statement, present the Crime Scene Notes. 
Why? Because if you look at the photo, what is surrounding the victim? That's
right, money and credit cards. If you were out for the money, then why would
you ignore all the money right there? Present it and then point to the ample
money strewn out on the floor of the elevator. 

Well, it seems that you are off the hook. But some loud-mouth, speaking in 
Borginian, is interrupting. This guy is a complete pain in the ass, he accuses
you of this and that, then claims that he has no time. Well, if I were the
killer, he'd be my first target. 

Lablanc, the loudmouth, claims that he saw the victim, Hicks, enter the 
elevator at 6 o'clock. That means that the victim was murdered between the
hours of 6 AM and 6:15 AM. That is a short period of time. With that, Edgey
will mention that he will need to investigate the crime scene in order to
clear his name. Teneiro will talk to the captain, who gives his approval,
so we can start an investigation. Teneiro will now Partner with Edgeworth
to supervise him.

[3.02] Day One - Investigation, Part 1

* Date - March 12, 7:26 AM             *
*                                      *
* Location - Flight I-390, First Floor *
*            Lounge                    *

Well, it is time we start to investigate the crime scene, and time to clear
our name, because we aren't the killer, Edgeworth has better things to do,
like cower during the turbulence. Well, Teneiro will mention that the killer
is still on board the plane, no passenger left the plane or can move around
without staff access.


 First Floor Lounge

Okay, first things first, we need to investigate the crime scene, where the
body. is. First, Edgeworth will point out that there is a supposed 15 minute
timeframe in which the killer killed the victim, and Edgeworth is the prime
suspect, but he didn't do it. 

 - New Logic Received - 

 Where Was the Killer?
  -> What clues point to where the killer could have been?

Anyway, lets investigate the elevator where our poor victim is in. First,
Teneiro mentiosn that the elevator can only go between the first and second

 - New Logic Received - 

  -> The victim's body was found inside the elevator that connects 1F with

Now, examine the piggy bank that is next to the victim's hand. It appears to 
be a piggy bank of the company mascot, Mr. Ifly. That is a hideous piggy
bank, but anyway. It can be purchased from the flight store next door. There
also appears to be blood on the piggy bank. That leads to a new piece of

 - New Logic Received - 

 Murder Weapon: Mr. Ifly
  -> The blood on it is still fresh ... Could this be the murder weapon?

Now, we can examine other things. Exmaine the little piece of paper that 
seems to be slipping out of his pocket. It appears to be a picture of the
victim at a tourist trap. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Photo of Mr. Hicks
  -> Found in the victim's pocket. A sourvenir picture, perhaps?

With this new piece of evidence, we can deduce that something is wrong 
with the crime scene. You see the lanyard, or the neck chain around his
neck? It seems that something is missing from it. Using the photo we just
stole, there is a glaring contradiction, or problem. His cell phone is
missing. With this, it will be added to your Organiser.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Missing Cell Phone
  -> The victim supposedly had one, but it has gone missing. Did the killer
     take it?

With this added, examine the body to receive more information about the body
and what has happened. 

 - New Logic Received - 

 Blunt Force Trauma
  -> Wound on the back of Hicks's head suggests blunt force trauma, but what
     caused it?

 Broken Glasses
  -> The victim's glasses are broken. Were they broken during his murder?

That is all we will get from that crime scene. Now, examine the mess, the
supposed blood scene, in front of the elevator. There is an issue with the
scene. And when you need to point it out, what is it? That is simple, why
are there footprints leading off to the flight store? Present that as the
important piece of evidence. 

 - New Logic Received - 

 Spilled Grape Juice
  -> There is some spilled grape juice on the floor in front of the elevator.

Well, there is nothing else of interest on this floor, but we have a lot of
information that needs to be connected using Logic. First, the obvious, 
connect Blunt Force Trauma with the Murder Weapon: Mr. Ifly piece. This will
add a new piece of evidence to your organiser, and also pointing out that
there are plenty of Captain Obvious' in the world.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Mr. Ifly Piggy Bank
  -> Usually on display at the in-flight shop. Found at the crime scene with
     blood on it.

We aren't done with the logic just yet, you can connect Where Was the Killer
with Elevator. The killer could have easily hid in the elevator to finish off
Mr. Hicks, so that seems obvious. This will present a nice piece of logic to
play with.

 - New Logic Received - 

 In the Elevator with Hicks?
  -> If only I could prove that the killer rode in the elevator with Hicks...

With this new piece of evidence, connect it with the Spilled Grape Juice.
There had to be someone else, otherwise, how could there have been footprints
leading off into the flight store. Dead victims don't suddenly start walking
by themselves. This also leads to new evidence. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Grape Juice Footprints
  -> Split during the turbulence. Looks like footprints and something being

And with all this done, we have completed our investigation. It seems like
our friend Lablanc is interrupting again. I seriously hate that guy, a real
pain in the neck. Complaing about this and that, time to shove this guy and
tear him a new one. 

[3.03] Day One - Questioning, Part 2

Lablanc is here again, causing trouble. He doesn't believe that you can
prove yourself innocent of any crime. Well, he better start point that 
"handgun" at someone else, preferably himself, because all he is doing is 
shooting himself in the foot.

 - What I Saw - 

 - I am certain I saw Mr. Hicks enter that elevator!

 - It was when the needles on my pocket watch pointed to the 6 and the 12!

 - The body was discovered 15 minutes after that in the lounge, yes?

 - Then you, the only person in the lounge at the time, must be the

Well, his testimony doesn't leave a lot of room to play around with, so we
need to press his statements. We need to press the first statement, and he
will keep saying that he is sure that no one entered the elevator, or was in
the elevator, when Hicks entered. With this, it seems too good a piece of
information to leave out.

 - The only person inside was that Mr. Hicks man!

Now we have him. If he was the only person inside that elevator, how on
earth does that explain the extra set of footprints outside the elevator, in
the grape juice stain? That doesn't make sense because it wasn't Edgeworth
who stepped in it, he didn't enter the store. Present the Grape Juice 
Footprints now. 

Because of this, we can't really believe what he says, so Edgeworth will
tell him to testify once more, so we can get a little bit more useful
information out of him.

 - What I Saw, Part 2 - 

 - I was very upset when Mr. Hicks passed by my seat.

 - I was always checking the time, over and over again.

 - I happened to follow that man with my eyes when he passed me.

 - And I saw clearing into the elevator he was entering.

 - But, I swear there was no one else inside. No one!

Well, there isn't any room to contradict what he just said. Press the second
statement, why on earth was he constantly checking the time, over and over
again. That doesn't seem right. Apparently, he was waiting for a particular
movie, and he couldn't miss it. So he set his pocket watch to the destination
time so he didn't miss the movie. This seems to warrant a new line of 

 - The movie I wanted to see would not start, so I check my pocket watch 
   many times.

Press this new statement straight away. He says that it was late, but Teneiro
will say that the movie started on time. That is a contradiction if there 
ever was one. That leads to a new piece of testimony that will be what you are
looking for. 

 - My watch is set to my destination's time. I always set it when I board
   the plane.

Now, this will be a problem. The Sky Magazine will mention that the movies 
always start at the DEPARTURE time, not the DESTINATION time. So present that
magazine to solve this little issue up on that statement. Because of the
time difference, it would appear that there is an issue, it would be nine 
hours ahead, in accordance to the time zone, so with a 12 hour pocket watch,
3 hours slow. That means, Lablanc saw the victim enter the elevator at 3 AM,
which leaves a 195 minute gap. That's pretty long. 

Well, the sleepy flight attendant, Cammy Meele, will start to speak. She 
will mention that she saw the victim in his seat at 5 AM, still that is a 
glaring gap of 1 hour and 15 minutes unaccounted for. With this information
about the refueling and the testimony of Cammy Meele, we have two new pieces
of evidence.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Refueling in Zheng Fa
  -> Made a brief stop from 4 AM to 5 AM to transfer cargo and refuel at 
     transfer point.

 Ms. Meele's Testimony
  -> "Mr Akbey Hicks was there in his seat when we took off again at 5 AM."

Again, this presents an issue for Edgeworth, he was in the lounge all that
time since 5 AM, which again, puts suspicion on him. Lablanc, the stupid
interrupting man, will say that you killed the man in the lounge. That leds
to a slight problem, there could have been another crime scene. 

Present the Grape Juice Footprints at this point. The footsteps point to
the flight store as a possible scene in which the murder could have taken
place. However, there is more evidence that points there. Present the Mr.
Ifly Piggy Bank, it could only be purchased from the flight store, again,
pointing it to that location. 

With this, Teneiro backs up the statement, but says that the piggy bank was
in the store at 5:40 AM, limiting the time frame of the murder, but that
puts the suspicion on her. We need to investigate the store. However, it 
seems that Ms. Teneiro didn't ask the Captain for permission, so Cammy will
escort you into the store. Time to start investigating again. 

[3.04] Day One - Investigation, Part 2

* Date - March 12, 8:32 AM             *
*                                      *
* Location - Flight I-390, First Floor *
*            In-Flight Shop            *

Well, the store is a mess, but we need to start investigating the store for
more clues on what the hell went on here. We are no closer to finding the
murderer, but at least we have cleared Edgeworth's name, for now anyway. Now,
we start off investigating, and it seems that this Cammy Meele is as lazy as
well, anything.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Murder Weapon: Mr. Ifly
  -> The blood on it is still fresh ... Could this be the murder weapon?


 In-Flight Shop

Well, first things first. Examine the broken display that is there. You will
find something interesting, a tiny captain's hat. What on earth could that
be for?

 - New Logic Received - 

 Tiny Captain's Hat
  -> It's a tiny captain's hat...? Hmm ... I swear I've seen one of these

Now, examine those, well, interesting suitcases next to Cammy. Well, after
a poor sales pitch, one of the suitcases trys to mow down Edgeworth, and
watch Edgey boy run! Anyway, a new piece of information has been entered 
into the log.

 - New Logic Received - 

 -> Plane's shaking caused it to roll. In -flight suitcase displays can be

That is all the clues we can get for now, so we need to use logic to get 
new leads. For now, you can connect the Murder Weapon: Mr. Ifly, with the
Tiny Captain's Hat. It seems like an odd choice, but it one that works. It
does make a cute, albeit strange looking piggy bank, but it will give a 
new piece of updated evidence.

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Mr. Ifly Piggy Bank
  -> Found at the crime scene. Culprit must've shattered the display case
     to take it. 

Edgeworth will mention that the display case will need further investigation
because of the piggy bank. Right now, there is a problem with the display
case. If the culprit broke down the display in order to get the piggy bank,
they would have smashed the glass from the outside, yet there are no pieces
of glass in there. So, deduce that the broken glass contradicts the piggy
bank. Therefore, Edgeworth deduces that the turbulence of the plane broke
the piggy bank free of the glass.

 - New Logic Received - 

  -> The plane shook so much during it that it made a huge mess of the shop.

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Mr. Ifly Piggy Bank
  -> This was taken out of its display case in the in-flight shop after the

Again, because of the broken glass, suspicion falls back on Ms. Rhoda, 
because she is the only one with access to the keys, and as such, she could
easily open the display case without breaking the glass. Now, we need to use
logic again, this time, connecting Suitcase with Turbulence, because well,
the turbulence would be able to shake the suitcases around, causing damage.

Now, because of this connection, Edgeworth will want to point out that
something is really odd with the suitcase. The suitcase on the left is the
one you need to examine. Look at the wheels, the one on the right has a 
stopper to stop it rolling, but the one of the left doesn't. Point that out.

Time to inspect the suitcase. The bottom wheel will have a stain, but that
is just grape juice. Could that be connected to the footprints? What you
will want to examine is the handle. What is inside the suitcase. A piece
of cloth, soaked in blood. This is going to be interesting. The suitcase,
therefore, it tied to the murder because of this. 

Your investigation will be complete, but that isn't all. The suitcase is
big enough to transport large items, and given that there is a bloody cloth
inside, it is safe to say that it could transport Hick's body. Present
the Crime Scene Notes when prompted as to what it could transport. With
this, you get new evidence. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 iFly Suitcase
  -> This was used to transport the body. It was designed by Ms. Rhoda

 Bloody Cloth
  -> Found inside the suitcase, its beautiful pattern has been soiled by 

With this evidence, it is possible that the crime scene is not the 
elevator, since the murderer transported the body in the suitcase. So we
have another crime scene on our hands. Then Ms Teneiro enters, saying
that she did the best she could, but the Captain has decided that it is
time to call off this investigation. However, Ms Teneiro seems to be 
drawing a lot of suspicion. 

                                                              To be continued.

After a little thought, a familiar piece of music plays again, and in comes
the person associated with that music, Ms. Franziska von Karma, and her 
friend, the Whip. For those who aren't knowledgeable of her, she is the
daughter of Edgeworth's mentor, Manfred von Karma, which Phoenix Wright
utterly destroyed.

And her first act? Place Edgeworth under arrest. Great. And Edgeworth, after
suffering and devouring a meal of whip leather, will be paired up with
Gumshoe, again. That is, after Gumshoe gets a meal with whip leather, after
all, with all those instant noodles, he might like the change in cuisine. 
Talk to him, and complete the questions to partner up. Lets go explore what
is in that plane. 

For those who played the first Phoenix Wright game, there are two cameos
here. Sitting in the blue is Sal Manella, who is created Steel Samurai, and
the lady selling the lunches, well, she is selling the lunches made by
Angel Starr, who was also in the first game. Anyway, lets go to the plane. 

* Date - March 12, 1:37 PM, Local Time  *
*                                       *
* Location - Flight I-390, Second Floor *
*            First Class                *

Well, we know who the Captain is now, he doesn't seem very, well, 
professional, having relations with the flight attendant, isn't that well,
a conflict of interest and airline safety? And well, before we enter the
lounge, whip leather. WHIP!

* Date - March 12, 1:40 PM, Local Time *
*                                      *
* Location - Flight I-390, First Floor *
*            Lounge                    *

Enter the Lounge to see that Lablanc wants you to help him say that he isn't
the criminal. Well, why should I help the person who kept accusing me of
being a murderer. What comes around goes around. Hmmm, well, there is really
nothing we can do except to talk to Lablanc.

He seems displeased that the police have kept a hold on his art cargo. But, 
as Edgeworth will point out, the hat that Lablanc has seems very similar
to the cloth that is in your organiser, so present the Bloody Cloth to him
to see what he says. He recognises this of course, that is interesting.

 - Evidence Updated -

 Borginian Cloth
  -> World-famous export of Borginia, its beautiful pattern has been soiled
     by blood.

He will keep demanding that his cargo be moved, and mention that Ms. Teneiro
seems to be still be in the flight attendant's room. With this, he will 
mention that their interview has been on for a while, what is taking so long.
Oh dear, Franziska seems to have walked in. And she isn't pleased. Well,
it is time for an argument. Time to bring out the sweet evidence. 

 - Franziska's Logic - 

 - Let's not complicate things and go with the most obvious conclusion.

 - The scene of the crime was here, in the very lounge the body was 

 - From the time the victim was seen calling for an attendant until his body
   was found...

 - ... the only person in this lounge the entire time was you, Miles

 - This, unmistakably, makes you the likeliest suspect. 

Hmmm, kindless from Franziska, that is strange and disturbing indeed. Now,
this is interesting, because she doesn't know all the details. This makes
it easy for you to find a weak point in her logic. The second statement is
the one that is the problem. We already established that the scene of the
crime is not in the elevator because of the footprints and the suitcase. So,
present the suitcase on the second statement. 

Now, she will object, saying that you only found the bloody cloth in it and
that there is no proof that it has been moved. However, you have evidence
to say otherwise. The Grape Juice Footprints evidence shows that there were
footsteps and SOMETHING BEING DRAGGED, and that's your escape, so present
that when prompted. Then, point out the obvious drag marks that are there,
as plain as day. However, you aren't saved yet, it still doesn't prove you
aren't the killer.

 - Franziska's Logic, Part 2 - 

 - You prepared yourself and acquired the piggy bank before the plane hit
   that trubulence.

 - And then, you waited for the victim in the lounge, where you beat him
   to death.

 - Then, while you were in the elevator with the victim's body stuffed into
   the suitcase...

 - ... the plane hit that patch of turbulence, and out flet the body from 
   within the suitcase!

 - With no way out, yuo hastily put the suitcase back where you had taken
   it from...

 - ... and pretended to be the "discoverer" of the body.

Okay, she is making this up on the fly, that's for sure, because there is
a big gaping hole in her logic. The first statement is the most obvious 
choice. She says that you prepared yourself with the piggy bank before the
turbulence, but we have already discovered that because of the glass, the
piggy bank was taken AFTER the turbulence, so present that on the first

Edgeworth will theorise what the killer did. After leaving the body in the
elevator, they moved the suitcase back to the rightful position, back at
the store, then took up the piggy bank from the floor, where it had landed. 
Then, the killer fabricated evidence by placing the piggy bank next to the
body, covered in blood. Then, they took the travel passport from the victim
and planted it on Edgeworth, whilst he was unconscious. As such, Edgeworth
will be framed. That does make sense. 

Now, where is the murder weapon? Because the cloth was found in the suitcase,
it means that the killer didn't have time to prepare a proper secure location
for hiding the evidence. So the murder weapon could be either on the person
or at the real crime scene. 

But Franziska will have a different view. The piggy bank could be the real 
murder weapon if it was stolen before turbulence, provided that they had the
key. That means, Ms. Teneiro was the murderer. Also, she tricked the captain
into letting Edgeworth investigate the murder scene. 

With this, Franziska will give you permission to talk to Rhoda, and attempt
to get to the bottom of this. That is, if you let her join you whilst you 
are questioning her, no problem there. Lets head into the flight attendant

* Date - March 12, 2:23 PM             *
*                                      *
* Location - Flight I-390, First Floor *
*            Flight Attendants' Room   *

Now, we get to finally question Ms. Teneiro about what the hell is going
on in this case. Talk to her straight away. She lied about the Captain 
giving permission because he only cares about Ms. Meele, which seems to be
true as Franziska confirms it. She also wanted to make up for the fact that
she accused Edgeworth of being a murderer. You know, this isn't the first

When you ask her about the shop, she claims that she has no other reason
to check up on the store besides just making sure it is ok. This is the
time you present the Suitcase for her. Remember what Cammy said, she did 
design the suitcase. What she does say is extremely interesting and very
important. She says that they were selling well, and there was only one
left. That's a problem. There are two suitcases at the scene. 

Talk to her about that, and she is definite that the suitcase there was
the last one. And Edgeworth, always the gentleman, tells her that her
suitcases are hideous. Ouch. But that's beside the point. The problem is
that there was only one suitcase left when Rhoda left the store, but 
there are two there now. How the hell are we going to solve this?

Now, Edgeworth will spy that there is a suitcase in the room, and Ms.
Teneiro says that is hers. However, he doesn't believe it, because there
is a problem with it being with her for a long time. The problem? There
is still a price tag, next to the fire extinguishers, and well, if you
have used it for a long time, why is there still a price tag?

So, Edgeworth will deduce that the suitcase was originally in the store
because they weren't selling well in actuality and that the person who
bought the suitcase was Rhoda Teneiro herself. So she bought it because
no one else was. With this, she has the receipt for the purchase, and it
is a piece of evidence now.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Suitcase Receipt
  -> Bought at the in-flight shop and left in attendants' room. The
     timestamp says 5:40 AM.

Well, purchasing a suitcase isn't a crime. She also states that the rest
of the suitcases should be down in the cargo hold of the plane. However,
there are only two ways to get to the cargo hold, from the flight 
attendant's room and from the elevator, but both require staff access. And
if someone stole a suitcase from the cargo hold to stuff the body, they need
access, staff access.

What is interesting is that Franziska will interject, saying that the
keycard for the elevator is different to the one that is used to get to the
cargo hold via the attendants room. And the only person with that access is
Ms. Teneiro. She kept the keycard in her locker, but wouldn't you know it,
it is missing. That was ... expected. 

Well, now she will be arrested for the crime. It truly isn't her fault that
it was stolen. Was it? Anyway, Franziska will go to investigate the cargo
hold, and so does Edgeworth. 

Time to save, and finish this case off. 

                                                              To be continued.

[3.06] Day One, Part 3 - Investigation, Part 1

* Date - March 12, 2:52 PM            *
*                                     *
* Location - Flight I-390, Lower Deck *
*            Cargo Hold               *

Well, we're at the cargo hold now. And it is indeed a big cargo hold. Well,
there is a high probability that this is the real scene of the crime. So
lets start the investigation.


 Lower Deck Cargo Hold

First, there is something that has been tearing at my head, why did 
Franziska arrive at the airport so early? It turns out, when you ask her, that
she is investigating a big organisation, so she arrived at the airport as an
Interpol liaison. This must be important as it is added as information.

 - New Logic Received -

  -> Franziska came to this airport as an Interpol liasion. 

Well, she keeps wagging her finger and says it's top secret. Moving on, move
down to the suitcase, the open one, and it is mentioned that it is the 
victim's suitcase. Nothing is out of the ordinary, except for the file that
is there, and it has a profile on Franziska von Karma. Note that does make
things interesting, is our victim a dead Interpol agent?

 - New Logic Received - 

 Profile on Franziska
  -> Why did Mr. Hicks have documents on Franziska in his possession?

This is a very clear link, so link the two pieces of new information together
in the Logic screen. With this, it does seem like Ms. von Karma has some
explaining to do about this. So, it seems like it is indeed Interpol Agent
Hicks we are talking about, and she mentions that he was on the trial of a 
very large smuggling ring. This is interesting.

 - New Logic Received - 

  -> Agent Hicks was on the trial of an international smuggling ring.

Well, that is all we are going to get out of her for now. Next order of
business, go and examine the suitcases, the one that Ms Teneiro designed.
It seems that one is indeed missing, and that Edgeworth is stepping on 
something, something called glass shards. 

 - New Logic Received - 

 Glass Shards
  -> What are these glass shards from?

Well, where are they from? Well, with no other clues for now, we need to
use a little bit of logic. And it would be easy, you can conclude that the
glass shards are from the broken pair of glasses, that belongs to the victim.
And that makes the cargo hold the real scene of the crime. 

With that, we know that Hicks came down here, but for what reason? Franziska
assures Edgeworth that it was work related, and he does point out that it 
would have probably been something to do with the smuggling ring. But that
presents a problem, how did Hicks get down here because he would need a staff
keycard, and a special one at that. 

With that, a crew member escorted him down, and it is then that they kill him,
stuff it in the suitcase, and the rest we all know about. When the plane hit
the turbulence, he fall out, the in the killer's haste, they left him there.
As such, they explains why there is money all over the place, it was there 
before of the turbulence. With that, our investigation is over. 

With this, time to get into an argument with von Karma.

[3.07] Day One, Part 3 - Questioning, Part 1

Well, Franziska keeps insisting that it is Ms. Teneiro, and this time, she
says that she has definitive evidence. And everything I hear that, I get
utterly disappointed because their evidence is nothing but rubbish. Lets hear
her out. 

 - Definitive Evidence -

 - If it was a crew member, any one of them could've shown Agent Hicks to
   the cargo hold.

 - But the point to keep in mind is the keycard that allows the elevator to
   come down here.

 - The only person with such high-level access is Ms. Rhoda Teneiro!

 - I'd say that's a pretty decisive piece of information, wouldn't you?

Hmm, that isn't very defitive if you ask me. There is no holes in her argument
because it isn't flawed. Therefore, we are going to need to press her for more
information. Press the second statement, it seems like there must be more
information to draw from this. And indeed there is, Franziska will give you 
more evidence that it was Rhoda that did it.

 - Further, there is the matter of the key to the display case that held the
   murderous bank. 

Press this new statement immediately. Edgeworth will insist that the piggy
bank is a fake murder weapon, but Franziska, rightfully, points out, where is
the real murder weapon? With this, there has to be something that rules the
piggy bank out as the murder weapon. This is quite tricky, but the answer is
the body. Why? Because we aren't even sure that the blow from the piggy bank
is consistant with the wounds received by the piggy bank, if it indeed the
murder weapon. So pick, The Body. 

Franziska tells scruffy, poor Gumshoe, to talk to the medical examiner to
find the results of the autopsy. There is a problem. They are still doing
the autopsy, but there is a big bruise running from the shoulder to the 
victim's mid back. This is interesting, was Hicks beaten up that badly as
well as being killed?

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Autopsy Report
  -> Instantaneous death resulting from blow to back of head. Bruising:
     head to mid back. 

     Victim - Akbey Hicks (Age: 28)

     Time of Death - March 12, between 3 AM and 4:30 AM

     Cause of Death - Cranial contrusion due to blunt force trauma to the
                      back of the head.

     Remarks - Appears to have been extensively beaten on the upper half
               of his back.

This is an interesting report indeed. Before we get a chance to do anything,
that annoying pain in the neck has ran down into the cargo hold, Lablanc has
walked in, yet again. This guy should be shot, seriously. With Lablanc 
charging down the guard, Edgeworth has an epihany on what has happened. And
off it goes in flashback mode.

 - New Logic Received -

 Mr. Ifly Piggy Bank
  -> Is there some way for me to prove that this ins't the real murder

 Weapon Couldn't Be Found
  -> Nobody could find anything that could be considered the real weapon in
     the hold.

 Cause of Death
  -> Extensive bruising from back of head down to mid-back, as if severely

And with all this logic, it goes straight down to logic mode. We need to 
connect the thoughts, yet again. First of all, connect the Mr. Ifly Piggy
Bank with the Cause of Death. The problem with the piggy bank being the
murder weapon is that it isn't consistant with the bruising. The bruise is
one continious mark, which indicates a single blow, rather than a repeated
bruising. This means the murder weapon is big, very big.

 - New Logic Received - 

 A Sizable Weapon
  -> The unusually large area of bruising suggests that a very large weapon 
     was used!

Now it is starting to make sense. Connect Weapon Couldn't be Found with the
new piece of logic, because if the weapon was big and large, it wouldn't be
obvious to anyone that it was a murder weapon. Perhaps it is something that
every has already seen, and overlooked, because it didn't stick out. Weapons
tend to stick out, what if this one didn't?

Well, Edgeworth figures it all out, and Franziska asks if you have any 
evidence to show for it. You have to say that you don't have any evidence
to show, you can't carry this around. This is because the cause of death.
With prompted, answer, Free Fall. Why Free Fall? Because it all makes sense,
falling and landing on your head creates the blunt force trauma, and the
fall create a giant bruise where you land, explaining the bruise on the
victim's back. 

How, where could he possibly have fallen from? Simple, after watching that
moron fall, the answer is elementary, he fell in this cargo hold, from
the top of the stairs. But Franziska points out that there is cargo blocking
the way, the circumstances prohibit Hicks dying from free fall. She asks
do you hvae any evidence to suggest that the box wasn't there. We do have
that evidence.

Present the Refueling in Zheng Fa piece out. That notes that cargo was 
transferred in and out of the plane. And there is something even more 
powerful as evidence, the crate, the big box, says Zheng Fa Express, which
means it must have been taken on at the refueling stop. 

 - Evidence Updated

 Cargo from Zheng Fa
  -> It was loaded onbaord during the refueling point between 4 and 5 AM 
     at the transfer point.

Now, say that the box was loaded on from Zheng Fa, that means, there was a 
gap there between Europe and Zheng Fa. Which does make a free fall death a 
possibility. With this, it is claimed it is still far-fetched, so we need
to start another investigation. 

[3.08] Day One, Part 3 - Investigation, Part 2

Well, it is time to examine the cargo hold in closer detail, there might be
something that will turn this case on its head, a Turnabout if you will.


 Lower Deck Cargo Hold

Now, first order of business is to examine that large box in which that stupid
moron landed on. It appears to be a statue of some sort. Straight away, that
stupid idiot comes down and says you can't touch it. Well, it looks like we
need to talk to him to see what information we can get out of it. 

Talk to him, first about his cargo. His Alif Red Statue is worth 10 million
cents. That's only $100,000 though. This guy is obsessed with his cents. He
claims that this is very valuable, but something just isn't right about this

 - New Logic Received -

 Valuable Piece of Art
  -> Mr. Lablanc claims to have brought a piece of art from Europe, but...

Now, with the lack of any other clues, we need to use logic, and for this,
piece the last two pieces of information together, the art, and the smuggling
ring. This opens up a few more questions that you can ask of this shady
character. Because if the statue is a fake, it is likely that it was taken
aboard when the plane was at Zheng Fa, not in Europe.

He doesn't like being accused that his work was a fake. He will produce the
Cargo Certification papers, and it says that the cargo was taken aboard the
plane whilst in Europe. This does blow it out of the water a little bit for
Edgeworth's theory.

 - New Evidence Received -

 Alif Red Certificate
  -> Document written in Borginian. Proof the statue was loaded onboard in 

With this, we all have a look at the statue, and it looks very familiar. 
Far too familiar. Still, it is a piece of evidence.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Alif Red Statue
  -> Piece of art being shipped by Mr. Lablanc who claims it is worth 10
     million cents.

Well, time to examine the statue, and when examine the eyes, something 
becomes a little clearer. It seems that the jewels is yellowish, but there
is a problem. If you look back at the statue in the photo containing the
victim, the jewels are red. Something isn't right. With this, you can 
deduce something. Point out the eyes as the problem with the photo as the
contradictory evidence. 

As such, there is something wrong with the statue. Perhaps it is indeed a
fake. You point it out to the art dealer, and finally, he will notice that
something isn't right. Now that it is indeed a fake, we need to find 
evidence that proves that it was indeed taken on in Zheng Fa, and not in

Now, with the statue, view down and examine the bottom. Why is the statue
stepping on the cloth of the box next door? With this, we have our second
problem. Select the cloth below the statue, and present the Cargo from 
Zheng Fa as the evidence. That will prove that the statue was place on
board from Zheng Fa, and that Hicks was down there investigating smuggling

As such, it was replaced and switched. Ergo, someone is involved with forging
and modifying the cargo certificates to change fake certificates into real

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Alif Red Certificate
  -> Document in Borginian. Says statue was loaded onboard Europe, but 
     statue is a fake. 

With this, your investigation is over, and we are slowly getting closer to
who the real killer is. With this, it is explained that the reason for
the photo is as proof of what the real deal looks like. As such, Hicks would
have went down to the cargo gold to take a photo of the cargo hold and proof
as to what is going on. Then, he could hold the Zheng Fa cargo crew, and 
from there, arrest the smuggler. 

With this, if there was a time frame in which the statue wasn't there, that
means Hicks could have fallen to his death. And we shall now find out. And
what do you know, the area under the statue contains blood. But how did the
killer clean up the blood? Simple, present the Borginian Cloth as evidence.

With this, that means the murder took place before the stopover in Zheng Fa,
so before 4 AM. And for that, someone's testimony is questionable, Cammy
Meele's Testimony you had earlier. With this, it looks like we have enough
clues and information to solve this case, we are at the killer's doorstep. 

                                                              To be continued.

[3.09] Day One, Part 3 - Questioning, Part 2

* Date - March 12, 3:35 PM            *
*                                     *
* Location - Flight I-390, Lower Deck *
*            Cargo Hold               *

Time to do the questioning of Cammy Meele. Sleeping as usual. She doesn't seem
to have taken that fact pointing adversive, in fact, she just says that she
might be been mistaken. So, with Franziska watching like a hawk, it is time
to find out her alibi for the murder time.

 - Ms. Meele's Alibi - 

 - ..................... Mnngh. 
   Oh, um ... yeah ...

 - From 3 to 4, I was, um ... in the flight attendants' room all by my
   lonesome self.

 - ..................... Mnngh.
   Oh, um ... yeah ...

 - And from 5 to 6, I was, um .. in the flight attendants' room all by my 
   lonesome self.

That is some, ah, enlightening testimony right there. Well, the first 3 
statements will produce nothing but useless information, but press the last
piece of information, she claims that she was in there, all alone, and no one
even visited her. We have a problem here. Ms Teneiro said that she brought
her suitcase at that time, and rolled it in at 5:40, and we have the receipt
to prove it. Present the Suitcase Receipt now. 

With that, Rhoda will confirm that she did roll it in, and she saw no one
in there. So that leaves a gaping hole as to what Cammy was doing at that 
point in time. However, she just claims she just happened to be in the toilet,
and you don't have evidence to say otherwise. But she will testify again, and
this time, it is shoot to kill.

 - Reason for Suspicion - 

 - Look, I know you're suspecting me 'cause I'm one of the crew.

 - But you'd think then maybe you should also suspect Ms. Rhoda, too.

 - She's the one in charge of the elevator keycard and the shop, you know.

 - If you ask me, that makes her super-suspicious.

Well, without any contradictory statements, we need to press her for more
information. Press the third statement, to find out that she is in charge
of languages, in particular, Borginian. How interesting that that'd be the
case. This will add a new piece of testimony at the end of the argument.

 - All I'm in charge of are the attendants' room and some Borginian stuff.

Now we have her. Present the Alif Red Certificate here, if she is in charge
of the Borginian stuff, especially if she is the only one who speaks it
here, then the signature on the certificate would be hers. And that piece
of paper isn't worth the, well, paper it is written on. Anyway, she will
be accused of smuggling, and rightfully so, and her defence is well, sleep.

With this, the real Cammy will turn up. And blowing bubbles this time 
around, but we know who the real suspect is now. She says that if the charge
of smuggling was thrown at her, murder would not stick. An OBJECTION 
suddenly flies in, von Karma. If she were involved in smuggling, then that
gives her ample reason to murder an Interpol agent investigating the crime.

Edgeworth points out that the killer is going through a good deal to pin the
murder on someone, first, it was Edgeworth, now it is Ms. Teneiro. And now,
Edgeworth will present evidence to say that the killer was out to pin the
crime on Rhoda the whole time. And you have evidence. And the evidence is?

The Suitcase. The killer had plenty of places to hide the evidence, but 
they stole a suitcase from the cargo hold and stuff it in that. That is in
order to frame Rhoda, why? Because she is the only one who purchases a 
suitcase on every flight, and if her suitcase happened to be the suitcase
containing the victim, then it would be very incriminating, wouldn't it?

However, due to the turbulence, the body fell out, and that was the end 
of that. But, they moved on and for that, they attempted to frame Edgeworth,
who was unconscious due to the turbulence. But why did the killer go
through all that to frame someone. What was the special circumstance for
the massive effort to frame a person of this crime?

The problem is that it was where the crime has taken place. No matter where
it had taken place, it was during mid-flight, and because of that, since
the body would be discovered due to customs, someone had to be framed. So
that happened to be Ms Teneiro and Edgeworth. And the reply? A Yawn.

But there is a problem, there is no definitive evidence linking Cammy with
the crime at hand. With that, there is one piece of evidence that hasn't
been accounted for. There is one piece, and that is, the Missing Cell Phone. 
That is missing, and still is. Franziska will help you by calling the 
number, and there is the ringing. It is on the plane, but not in the cargo
hold. Head up the stairs to the flight attendants' room.

* Date - March 12, 4:12 PM             *
*                                      *
* Location - Flight I-390, First Floor *
*            Flight Attendants' Room   *

As we enter the room, we can hear the ringing louder than before. Open the
locker with the closed door, and we will see how's locker it is. It happens
to be Ms. Teneiro's locker that the phone is stuck in. Oh dear. With that,
we have a problem, again.

* Date - March 12, 4:28 PM            *
*                                     *
* Location - Flight I-390, Lower Deck *
*            Cargo Hold               *

With this new information, Cammy will get Franziska to arrest Rhoda, but not
before there is an Objection. Edgeworth will suggest that the killer stole
the key card from Ms. Teneiro and stashed the phone there. But there is no

Edgeworth will be saying that there has to be something. Why did the killer
take the phone, there has to be something there what is incriminating. So, we
are stuck examining that phone is detail. When you examine the phone, flick
it to the back and examine the one thing that matters, the camera. With that,
we can use the phone to look through the pictures that must be stored on the
phone. But the phone is broken, or so Cammy says.

However, because the screen is broken, it may be the case that the killer 
could not wipe off the incriminating data. Also, the phone rang when it was
called, so it wasn't broken, just the screen is. By transferring the data
from Hicks' phone onto Franziska's, we get the data. 

With that, we get a photo, but it doesn't seem useful. Well, examine the
boxes on the bottom right hand side of the screen. It appears that they
were the boxes dropped off at Zheng Fa. And guess what it contains. Borginian
Cloth. Interesting, with this photo, and Borginian cloth sitting in the
organizer, we can prove that they used the cloth to wipe out the blood.

Therefore, present the Borginian Cloth. With this, we now know where the
cloth came from, it came from those boxes dropped off at Zheng Fa. And it 
said Cloth on the box, so to know that it was indeed cloth, the person had
to understand Borginian, and the only person on the flight crew that could
do that is, well, Cammy Meele.

Now she is getting desperate, she says that it could be just the killer going
through all the boxes. The problem is that if the killer did not understand
Borginian for cloth, they would have gone to one box first. And that is the
box of bedsheets sitting on the top left hand corner. So they had to 
understand Borginian. 

So why the box of Borginian cloth, rather than the bedsheets? Simple, the
box of cloth was going to be unloaded at Zheng Fa, therefore, it would have
been long gone before the body was to be discovered. And with that, she 
confesses. The bubbles popping was all just too hectic for her.

* Location - Flight I-390, First Floor *
*            Lounge                    *

Well, it appears that we have solved the crime. The smuggling ring is still
operational, and it appears to be some serious stuff. Well, Edgeworth goes
and gets his gentleman streak going again and Rhoda seems happy that she is
off the hook. It seems that Franziska is leaving soon, so you can already
guess what is going on. 

* Date - March 12, 5:47 PM,       *
*                                 *

Well, a little chat with Franziska wouln't kill. The more we hear about her 
case, the more dangerous it seems for her, after all, this is a pretty big
operation they seem to be dealing with. She mentions a successful Interpol
agent that you might meet. You will meet him, be assured of that, with the
highest arrest rate as well. 

Anyway, Gumshoe seems to be happy again. And it seems that Franziska has
been cutting his salary again. I swear, does this guy pay to go to work or
something, they can't possibly cut his salary any more, it's been cut for
years now, again and again. 

At the end, pitch black, we get a call, from a Mr. Amano, and his son has been
kidnapped. Oh, this is just great. No rest for the wicked.

                                                                       THE END

[4.01] Day One - Investigation, Part 1

* Date - March 13, 10:11 AM *
*                           *
* Location - ???????????    *

Well, as a continuation of the past case, it seems that Edgeworth is the one 
making a drop off for a kidnapping case. Nice to see him put that hideous
suitcase to good use, not sure Rhoda Teneiri would be too pleased about it.
Anyway, it seems that the drop off is going to be at a theme park, and you
are greeted by a Proto Badger. Okay, that's just strange.

Anyway, the call comes in, and you need to bring in the money to the stadium.
And he pleadswith the gods that Gumshoe comes through for him, this one time.
What, he lets everyone else down all the time, does he? Once at the stadium,
Edgeworth is the shuttle service to the Haunted House. Eh, going inside a 
haunted house to make a drop off. Spooky. 

As he enters the doors, well, he gets told off. Well, we are stuck in the
haunted house as something arrives, and what happens, the badger! Ah, that
was slightly freaky, the badger just looks crazy with a sword in tow. 

* Date - March 13, 11:23 AM *
*                           *
* Location - ???????????    *

Well, we wake up to see ourselves in a dark dank room, with a badger head
right next to us. Well, that's great. We learn the reason for the drop off,
it was a favour to a powerful friend, the head of the Amano group, the Mr
Amano. Anyway, quick check shows that you do have something in your pockets.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Gatewater Land Pamphlet
  -> Map and explaination of park attractions listed. Touch the Check Button
     for details.

Edgeworth starts groaning, and someone comes down to meet him. Well, meet
the Great Thief, Yatagarasu. That names rings a bell, well, technically, the
bell is for the future. Anyway, meet Kay Faraday, who seems to enjoy watching
Edgeworth make faces as he attempts to get free of the ropes. I have to admit,
that would be quite a sight. 

Anyway, time to talk to her, about the Great Thief. Then, talk about 
Yatagarasu, something that is going to be important later on. Now, we need to
escape this place. Well, the door is locked, and it is a tad too high to
jump out, so it looks like we've got to find another way out. 


 Isolation Room

First order of business, the little white thing on the tarp, that is Edgey's
phone, so lets go play with it. Well, Gumshoe eventually calls in and well, 
the police have set up a perimeter now, but I don't think that is going to be
of much use. But there is a problem. Whilst Gumshoe was doing that, it 
appears that a mysterious stranger is on the other side of the phone.

The mysterious stranger is Shi-Long Lang of Interpol. That's good news, they
aren't bad guys, right? Well, this guy is a nice piece of work, doesn't have
enough people to help you out of your little bind, too busy hunting for a
kidnapper. Great. And what that, the phone runs out of power. Great, this is
turning out to be a great day.

Now, lets start investigating the room. Look at the blue badger's head, the
Bad Badger. Why is it by itself, there is no body with it. Investigate
that and add that to your pile of evidence.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Bad Badger's Head
  -> Costumes seperate into head and body. This head was left in the Isolation

Now, lets investigate the pink head in the box directly in front of you. That
seems, well, interesting. Kay will give you a heads up on the badger family,
and what they are. You even get a book for that, sigh, what is the world 
coming to. Anyway, with the head in the box, that means that there are 7
costumes in use right now. One small case, and the badger thing just goes 
totally berserk.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Blue Badger Bible
  -> Book detailing info on the whole Badger family. Touch the Check Button 
     for details.

 - New Logic Received - 

  -> It seems that the costumes of the Badger family are kept in the Isolation

Now, to inspect the next thing, and obviously, that is the key. Have a look,
and it is a key, to something. Yes, I totally need to figure that out.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Tiny Key
  -> I may be able to open something, somewhere in this room with this key.

Well, that is about all you are going to get from that shelf. Lets look around
the room once more. Now, examine the photo rally sign on the floor, and there
is apparently a competition to capture a photo of all 4 badgers to win some
great prize, but that isn't our concern.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Badger Photo Rally
  -> There's only 1 of each Badger in the park. Try to get the whole Badger

Now, the last thing we can do is inspect the lockers. That seems to be your
only way out, and you get a piece of logic for this.

 - New Logic Received - 

  -> If we can get to the top, then we can escape. If only there were some

Now, examine the beam that you were tied to. This will create a foothold
for Kay to jump around in. But she isn't tall enough to do anything with 
it, but you do get a piece of logic.

 - New Logic Received - 

 The Beam I was Tied To
  -> There is a hook on this beam, but it's not enough of a foothold to
     climb out with. 

Now, you can talk to Kay about the kidnapping. She will have some information
about it, though I wonder how on earth she knows about it. After you talk to
her about that, she will move out of the door's way, and you can examine the
door. The most obvious thing to inspect is that ladder going down the manhole.
That is a bit, well, obvious. 

 - New Logic Received - 

 Open Floor Panel
  -> The panel is held in place by a hook. The entrance to an underground
     room perhaps?

Now, examine the door on the opposite side, and Edgeworth will note that the
rooms are very similar. Because of that remark, connect Open Floor Panel and
the Beam together with your logic. The Beam is right next to the open floor
panel in the next room, so you might as well give it a try. The hook on the
beam is actually there to keep the floor tile up. And once the tarp has been
folded up, there is your panel. Examine the panel, but alas, it is locked.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Underground Entrance
  -> We might be able to escape through here, but the door is locked.

You can guess what to do now, we can try to use the tiny key with the locked
underground entrance. Now, there is a problem, the underground entrance is
full of machinery. There isn't going to be an exit there. Meanwhile, Kay
nearly died after jumping down, the ladder was removable. That is very
interesting indeed.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Underground Ladder
  -> It looks as though it can be easily removed, but is it really safe to

Now, connect the locker with the ladder, with a ladder, we can easily escape
to freedom. And with that, your investigation is complete, you have offically
escaped from the Isolation Room. Not so isolated if you can escape, is it?
Well, it looks like it is time we do some actual work.

* Date - March 13, 12:11 PM       *
*                                 *
* Location - Wild, Wild West Area *

So it appears that the isolated is in the Wild, Wild West Area. And Edgeworth
does have style sliding down a pipe. And finally, that Gumshoe actually has
a use, he finds you, eventually. And behind him seems to be an army of police
officers. What on earth is going on. MIB saying count off? Aliens I don't know

And what happens, we finally meet the mysterious Interpol Agent. Mr Shi-Long
Lang. And if you are curious as to what Shifu actually means, it means boss
in Cantonese. Well, here is Lang, and he nice enough to trade, ummm, business
cards? That's real, ah, useful. Well, here is your elite agent from Zheng Fa. 

And he also mentions Gumshoe as comic relief.That is something we both agree
on, I guess. And when Edgeworth asks for a part in the investigation, we get
a first in this game, a NOT SO FAST! Still, it seems that Lang really doesn't
like Edgeworth, or prosecutors in general. And before you can interject, off
he goes. Where is Edgeworth's NOT SO FAST?

[4.02] Day One - Investigation, Part 2

Well, there isn't much we can do, so talk to Kay and Gumshoe, until you have
talked enough, it will be time to see Mr Amano, the person who requested your
help in the first place, to show up, and you can ask some more questions for
him. Then, as Kay and Gumshoe fight, Gumshoe gets dragged off, which is rather 
entertaining once you see it, and you start an investigation with Kay as
your partner. Well, it is time to start gathering more clues on that the hell
went on.


 Wild, Wild West Area

Well, as Gumshoe gets dragged off into the distance, your first thing is to
talk to the Blue Badger. This is interesting, because underneath the costume
is Mike Meekins, and for those who remember, he was in the first game, fifth
case, and the fourth game. Anyway, talk to him. 

It appears that Meekins is on duty as the Blue Badger. Well, great work. Talk
to him, and it seems that he was here as tactics from Lang, to observe and
watch the kidnapper. Meekins appears to be hiding something, which is great,
we need to dig it out of him. 

Anyway, he says that he has been standing there for an hour when you ask him
about Any Clues, so that is a problem, it contradicts the evidence. There is
a piece of evidence that you have that says on one of each badger is walking
around the park at a single time, and now it seems that there is two. For
this, present the Badger Photo Rally. With this, that means that there are
two blue badgers, something isn't right.

 - New Logic Received - 

 A 2nd Blue Badger
  -> There's only supposed to be 1 Blue Badger in the park, but a second was

With this, we can connect things using logic. Connect Costumes with this new
piece of information, and it matches up. With this, it means that the second
blue badger was probably one of the kidnappers in disguise, escaping from
the crime scene from the police.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Costumed Escape
  -> The identity of the second Blue Badger was probably the kidnapper in

Also, with this, given the badgers missing from the costume room, that means
that there is a Proto Badger, Blue Badger and Bad Badger running around that
are fakes. With this, evidence will be added.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Stolen Costumes
  -> The kidnappers stole three costumes: a Blue, a Proto, and a Bad Badger.

Well, that is that. If you examine the cactus at the bottom of the scene, it
will be mentioned that it was donated by the police. If anyone remembers, 
this means that the cactus farm that was operated by Jake Marshall was taken

Now, examine the area in front of the pole that you dropped down from. It will
be a muddy set of footprints lead to and from, but there isn't much in terms
of information. But, we do know that the kidnappers would have some real 
muddy feet. 

 - New Logic Received - 

 What Kind of Shoes?
  -> If only we knew, we'd be able to track the kidnappers from the  

Well, now we can join the dots, connect the two pieces of information together
with the logic screen. With this, we know that the kidnapper escaped in a 
badger costume, and as such, we can trace the kidnapper using a set of paw
prints. Examine the foot prints again. Now, there are two sets, one set
will lead off to Mike Meekins, and the other set heads off west, off towards
the stadium. The one with Meekins will enter the garage, so we open the 
garage to find. Well, oh dear.

It is a garage, with 1 car, and one slight problem. A dead body. Mr Amano 
will say straight away that this is Oliver, the missing butler. Well, he 
isn't missing anymore. But why is Oliver Deacon here in the first place? 
That is an issue. Also, it looks that a bullet killed him, nothing else.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Victim Was Kidnapper?
  -> Following a kidnapper's prints lead us to a body. Was the victim in a

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Preliminary Findings
  -> Victim : Oliver Deacon. Seems he was shot dead. Touch the Check Button
     for details.

Now, we get to investigate the crime scene before the agents come back to
interrupt the investigation. Look on the neck to have a look at the pendent
that Deacon had. It seems that the neck chain belonged to a Colin Devaroe. 
That isn't the name of our victim though. This is an issue, so present the
Preliminary Findings by deducing that the pendent is a contradiction to the
facts. For that, we get new evidence.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Mr. Deacon's Pendant
  -> It's shaped like a horse. "Colin Devorae" is engraved on the back.

Now, what else is wrong with the picture at hand. Anyway, point to the 
gunshot wound on the shoulder, and there seems to be two gunshot wounds
on the victim. One on the shoulder, one in the abdomen, but he was only
shot once. That means that the abdominal wound is the entry wound and
the shoulder is where the bullet exited. Edgeworth will also point out
a single thing, for a crime scene, there isn't a lot of blood, especially
for a person who has just been shot. 

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Preliminary Findings
  -> Victim, Deacon, shot from ABD through shoulder. Touch the Check Buttom
     for details.

     Victim - Oliver Deacon (Age: 50)
     Time of Death - Pending autopsy

     Cause of Death - Preliminary findings indicate loss of blood resulting
                      from a gunshot wound.
                      Entry Point : lower right abdomen
                      Exit Point: right shoulder

     Remarks - Despite the fact that the fatal bullet went through clean
               through the body, there is very little blood at the site where
               the body was found. 

With this, our investigation will be complete. There isn't much more that
we can examine. With Amano starting to call his son like a little kid, a 
girl will walk in, looking slightly suspicious. She happens to be Lauren 
Paups, and she is Lance's girlfriend. How did she get past the police 

Her lack of an inner monologue will push Edgeworth to his limits. Well, 
we don't have much to do, and once we decide to investigate further, Lang
will show up, apparently, someone radioed in the fact that we found a dead
body. Straight away, he arrests Meekins. He mentions that that is how he
does his job, just arrest suspicious people and leave it up to the prosecutors
to do the rest. 

With this crap, Edgeworth refuses to have Meekins arrested because there
really is no evidence that Meekins committed the crime, and the MIB seems a
little flustered. However, with this, Lang will say that he will play by the
rules and give you his piece of logic. 

[4.03] Day One - Questioning, Part 1

Now, time to listen to Lang's brillant logic, well, lack there of, his logic
isn't that great, after all, there are some holes in them. 

 - Shi-Long Lang's Logic - 

 - I've seen a lot of bodies like the one being carted off in my time.

 - I can say he was shot in a single glance, but even you figured that much
   out, right?

 - With your current gun laws, it's not exactly easy to get your hands on 
   a gun.

 - Not unless you're a member of law enforcement like Officer Meekins, isn't 
   that right?

Well, that is some ah, great logic there, because there are tougher gun laws,
you have to have been a member of law enforcement to kill someone? Well, that
is the problem of his logic, just because a member of law enforcement has a 
firearm, it doesn't automatically make them killers. Press the fourth 
statement. It turns out that Lang has examined all the other officer's guns
and Meekins is the last one, and he happens to have lost his gun. Great. 
Lang will present one last line, which is all you need.

 - Officer Meekins ambushed the victim in this garage and killed him here 
   with his gun!

What is the problem with this? Oh right, the lack of blood at the crime
scene. If there was indeed an incident here, there would be more blood. As
such, that claim cannot be true, so present the Preliminary Findings here
as contradictory evidence. I still love Edgeworth and his tapping of the

Lang congraulates you for having some logic, and he tells you something 
interesting, Meekins wasn't assigned to this area. Something isn't right at
all. Looks like we need to question Meekins for a little more information
on what the hell he was doing there.

 - Meekins's Testimony - 

 - It's true, sir! I wasn't assigned to this area, sir!

 - I was told to check every square inch of the main gate area, sir!

 - I also went looking for kidnappers while selling dreams in the Blue
   Badgermobile, sir!

 - But! I got completely caught up in my role, selling dreams to the children!

 - Before I knew it, I found myself here in this area, sir!

Before you get to question him, you will get more information on this Blue
Badgermobile, it is just a portable souvenir store, nothing further. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Blue Badgermobile
  -> Mobile shop on three wheels. Was parked inside the Wild, Wild West area

Well, what can we do with this meek officer? Simple. The Badgermobile is 
parked inside the garage, and if you noticed, there isn't any wheelmarks 
outside the area. Therefore, it has been in the garage for a while, so he
really couldn't have been selling dreams for a while. So present the Blue
Badgermobile on the third statement.

It seems that this is the case, Meekins will admit that it was stolen for
a while, and he was tracking it. Lang has other ideas, merely that Meekins
used the Badgermobile to move the body from the real crime scene, and with
that, he is arrested and taken away. Edgeworth will try to stop, but Lang
has the authority in this investigation, and threatens obstruction of 
justice if Edgeworth interferes.

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Mr. Deacon's Murder Notes
  -> Body was moved. Shot from aBD through shoulder. Touch the Check Button
     for details.

                                                              To be continued.

*                                     *
* Location - Gatewater Land Main Gate *

Well, we've been kicked out, so that isn't much use for us. Well, Gumshoe will
somehow manage to rush in and say that there is a witness located in the 
Stadium area, so you will need to rush off there, after he gets carted off
again. What possible use can they find for him anyway, he isn't that useful,
is he?

* Date - March 13, 1:22 PM *
*                          *
* Location - Stadium       *

Well, a familiar face for those who have played the series will pop up, and
that is Ema Skye. She will be the same old forensic scientist wannabe, but 
this time, she is wither the Detective title, or she is constantly munching
the whole time. She is slightly freaky though, she followed you here from
the airport using nothing but footprints. Anyway, we need to investigate the
area, so talk to her. 

After that, examine the pink Badgermobile, and in comes the Pink Badger. And
Edgeworth gets a bad feeling, a real bad feeling. Note that Badger, Badger,
Badger, Badger meme. Anyway, talk to the Badger, it looks like she has 
something to say to you. His reaction is priceless. And she has the best name
for him ever, Edgey-poo. Edgeworth isn't pleased, to say the least.

Anyway, the walking nightmare still needs to be lived through. Anyway, Wendy
Oldbag isn't exactly a new face, she has been in the game every times, each
time to make Edgeworth as uncomfortable as possible. Anyway, after all the
talk, and making Edgeworth as miserable as possible, she will give her 
testimony on what happened, after all, she is the witness that everyone has
been toting about.

 - What Oldbag Witnessed -

 - I came to this stadium to take a short break.

 - As I was ersting, I happened to glance over and I saw two men facing each
   other in that area.

 - Suddently, there was a loud gunshot, and the person who was shot fell to 
   the ground.

 - It was a very terrifying experience, let me tell you.

Well, that isn't exactly groundbreaking evidence, but it is better than 
nothing at all. However, there is a problem with her testimony. She says that
she saw two men facing each other, however, we do know that the victim must
have been inside a costume in order to hide all that blood evidence. But we 
have no evidence to suggest that was the case, just logic, so all you can 
do is press all the statements, and we will get nothing. But what will happen
will be interesting. 

Kay will introduce the Little Thief for you. It is a little gadget that 
will allow you to recreate a crime scene, based on the information that you
have been given, and with that, you can tell if there is a problem with the
information that you have been given. Anyway, lets move onto what our little
recreation will tell us. 

[4.05] Day One, Part 2 - Re-Creation, Part 1

This is where things get interesting, there is a re-creation of the crime
scene. Anyway, Kay will introduce you to the Little Thief machine, and with
this, we will solve all the problems that are dogging us at every single 

Well, we will start an investigation on the crime scene, based on Oldbag's



Now, with this, we can start our investigation. With this, examine the victim,
which is the body in blue. There is a glaring contradiction here, and the 
problem is blood, or in this case, the lack there of. There is no blood here,
which makes it hard to say it is the crime scene. The evidence you need to
present is the Mr Deacon's Murder Notes. Present it.

Of course, Oldbag gets a bit wound up for that, well, you are saying that she
is wrong. Therefore, there has to be another explaination for the reason that 
there is no blood there in this crime scene, just like the other crime scene.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Why Is There No Blood?
  -> Why is there no blooud around the victim's prone body?

With this, we can use some logic to connect the thoughts. Connect your 
remaining two pieces of logic together to understand why the crime scene
doesn't appear to be a crime scene. It appears that it is most likely that
the victim was actually inside a costume at the time. Therefore, we need
to establish there were footprints, so talk to Ema about that. Off goes 
Little Thief, and in comes the forensics. 

With the footprint analysis, the victim was here, and left those footprints
for us. Therefore, we get some more information.

 - New Evidence Received - 
   Victim's Costume
    -> He was likely wearing one due to footprints's shape and the lack of

With that, the crime scene gets better, and a bit more interesting. And 
Edgeworth will ask to hear the testimony of Oldbag one more time. There is a
method to his madness, we have new evidence. And Oldbag is more than happy 
to give her evidence to Edgey-poo one more time.

 - What Oldbag Witnessed -

 - I came to this stadium to take a short break.

 - As I was ersting, I happened to glance over and I saw two men facing each
   other in that area.

 - Suddently, there was a loud gunshot, and the person who was shot fell to 
   the ground.

 - It was a very terrifying experience, let me tell you.

With this, you can use your new piece of evidence against her. If it is 
established that the victim was in a costume, then how could she have possibly
seen two men. How could she not tell that one was a badger? Therefore, present
the Victim's Costume at her second statement, it doesn't add up. Well, it 
seems that Oldbag isn't a decisive witness as she would seem, she is too far
away from the crime scene to identify who is what. She will tell you that she
didn't see who was what because she saw them in the shadow of the stage.

 - New Logic Received - 

 In the Shadow of the Stage
  -> It was hard to make out the killer and victim that Oldbag saw in the 
     stage's window. 

And off her mouth goes again, she just doesn't stop. Well, Kay will re-create
the crime scene, and there is a slight problem, the stage doesn't provide
enough of a shadow that it would obsecure the view, so examine the stage. And
it looks like the stage was broken down, instead of being set up.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Stage was Packed Up
  -> The stage I saw this morning in the center of this stadium has been
     packed away.

Immediately, connect those two thoughts together. There is a problem with the
statements, the stage was packed up, so there would be no shadow, right? With
this, Kay will recreate the crime scene, and there is another problem. It is
quite obvious, a body is melded with the stage. That isn't right. Examine the
killer again. And for those who are observent, the stage is part of the 
Gavineers set, if you look at the G on the stage. This is a little cameo or
flashback to Apollo Justice.

Anyway, the re-creation will have the killer on the stage. Yet before a 
problem can be pointed out, Lang will interrupt again. This guy just doesn't
take no for an answer, does he? Anyway, when they cut back, there is a sign
point to Troupe Gramarye, which is another nod to Apollo Justice. Anyway, lets
go on. 

Again, he still suspects Meekins, which is a problem, because it can't be him,
he is far to meek.

 - Agent Lang's Logic - 

 - This is the real secene of the crime.

 - Officer Meekins lay in wait for the victim on top of the stage.

 - And when the victim finally showed, he shot him from on high!

 - That's the truth your little re-creation showed.

There is a fatal flaw in his logic. The problem is that it is already 
established that the victim was shot from the abdomen and the bullet exited
through the shoulder. However, if he was shot from up high, the reverse
would be true, wouldn't it? It doesn't make sense, and it doesn't add 
up, so present Mr. Deacon's Murder Notes here on his third statement to
coufound him a bit. Your OBJECTION will shut him up enough.

Anyway, when asked, the mistake in the re-creation is that killer's and
victim's location. If the reverse were true, the killer on the ground and
the victim on stage, then the bullet angles will make sense, but will not
explain the footprints. However, the killer would also be wearing
a costume, to explain the footprints after the shower occured, which clears
that up. However, Lang doesn't give up that easily.

 - Another Bit of Proof - 

 - I ask that you take another good look at the tire marks over there.

 - The three marks are indicative of the Blue Badgermobile.

 - That story Officer Meekins told about that shop on wheels getting stolen
   was just a lie.

 - He drove the Blue Badgermobile here and committed the murder.

 - Then, he used the car to move the body to the garage in the Wild, Wild 
   West Area.

Again, there is a problem with his logic. If there are tire marks, then 
that means that there has to be mud on the bottom of the tires, because
they were made after the shower. However, a look on the Blue Badgermobile
will show you that this is not the case, there is no mud on the tires, so
that means that what Lang just said was a pile of crap. So present the
Blue Badgermobile on the second statement. And then point to the front 
wheel because Lang is blind. 

That means, the Proto Badgermobile must have caused the mess, via process
of elimination, because the Pink Badgermobile is right here, so it will be
accounted for. With this, and the shot at Lang done, something interesting
happens, Lance walks in. 

Well, there is something about the story that doesn't add up. He was held
in the room next to where Edgeworth was trapped in. We didn't see him for
starters. And he says that he escaped via the underground tunnel, yet we
saw no exit. Something isn't right, be we get chased off before anything
can happen. And our friends, and admirers, can do nothing.

                                                              To be continued.

[4.06] Day One, Part 3 - Questioning, Part 1

* Date - March 13, 3:45 PM            *
*                                     *
* Location - Gatewater Land Main Gate *

You rock up and straight away, you find the costume that Gumshoe was talking
about. Well, interesting as it is, you need to examine it, and it is quite
clear on what you need to examine, it is the little necklace that is next
to the neck of the costume. And right when you examine it, you will be 
stopped by Lang. Seriously, this guy needs to take a hike. 

After a little examination by Lang, it turns out that this necklace turns 
out to be Lauren's, and that makes it a little bit, well, interesting, for
a lack of better word.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Ms. Paup's Pendent
  -> It's shaped like a pair of wings. "Lauren D." is engraved on the back.

Well, with that, suspicion falls upon her. Lang accuses her immediately, and
drops the charges on Meekins, after they found his gun ... in the middle of
a thick patch of grass. What great police training these officers get. But we
know that the case is far from over. Lang wants to close the case, but we 
can't, there are still many unresolved questions at hand. She also admits to 
the murder, which tends to make things a bit more difficult. Lang wants to 
shoot himself in the foot, so he lets you question her.

 - Ms. Paups's Confession - 

 - The onw who came up with the kidnapping plan was the butler, Mr. Deacon.

 - We knew that we could get rich by holding Lance hostage.

 - Mr. Amano would pay anything to get his sone back, after all.

 - Everything was going according to plan, but as sooon as we got the money...

 - ... Mr. Deacon turned on me, and tried to kill me!

Well, there is a problem, by now, if you haven't realised it. Mr Deacon would
be the least likely person to kill her. Press the fifth statement. When that,
Edgeworth mentions it is improbable, so raise an objection whilst you still
can. She mentions that she and Deacon were total strangers, but there is a 
deeper problem. They weren't total strangers. The Colin Devorae Dossier has a
reason to mention that there is a daughter involved, and the D after Lauren 
has meaning as well. And Colen Devorae is an anagram for Oliver Deacon, our

Therefore, present Mr. Deacon's Pendent when prompted to present evidence, and
together with Ms. Paup's Pendent, they combine to form, of all things, a 
Pegasus. And remember what she said about a Pegasus and her father a while
back. And to link it together, present Devorae's Dossier, and point out the
part that mentions that he has a DAUGHTER. That should make the connection
between daughter and father quite clear.

Of course, Lang needs to poke his head into this matter, he is losing some
control, after all. 

 - Another Possibility - 

 - I'll grant you that the two of them are father and daughter.

 - But, isn't it possible that they both knew that fact?

 - It was no coincidence that the reunited pair became involved in the house
   of Amano.

 - And the two of them made good use of their meetings to plan this little

 - Wouldn't you say my scenario is perfectly probable as well?

This is going to be difficult, the argument is nearly perfect. But it isn't
so perfect. This is hard to find the answer, but Edgeworth advises that you
take a long hard LOOK at the evidence. That is, pictures. And this is quite
simple if you think of the scenario. The two of them planned a kidnapping, 
but remember, you proved that there were THREE kidnappers. Not two.

And your proof? The Stolen Costumes, three complete sets were taken, and
there were three coffee cups and three folding chairs. There were three
kidnappers, not two. So at the fourth statement, present the Stolen Costumes
as evidence that the possibility is all that it is, a possibility. 

Now, who is the mastermind of this kidnapping? Well, that is quite simple 
when you think about it. Deacon is dead, the mastermind would have died 
that easily, and Lauren is a bit too clueless to be the mastermind, so that
leaves one option, the "hostage", Lance as the kidnapper mastermind. Why, 
because he mentioned that there were two kidnappers earlier on. There were
clearly three. Now, we need to question him, and get to the bottom of

 - Lance's Testimony - 

 - I was kinapped yesterday morning.

 - They had me shut in that room, blindfolded, the entire time.

 - But the kidnappers suddenly disappeared around the time I heard rain
   falling outside.

 - My hands were cuffed, but it was a stroke of luck that they left me 

 - I made my escape and ran away from that room as fast as I could.

Well, there is nothing that you can contradict yet, so you will need to
press more information out of him. I suggest that you press the last statement
for more information. He mentions that the door to the outside was locked,
and with that, we need a new statement from him, we have him telling lies
now, and we can prove it easily.

 - The door leading outside was locked tight, so I had to use the underground

Now, this is a lie. Why? Because when we investigated the room, the lock as 
fine, and after the kicks of 10 Officers, if it was locked, the lock shouldn't
be fine. The door was held together by the Prop Sword, and that was broken in
the effort to enter the room. Therefore, the room wasn't locked, so bust out
Lance by presenting the Broken Prop Sword.

Lang will interject, saying that you keep saying that Lance is one of the 
kidnappers, but you don't have any evidence of a motive. Oh, but we do, and
it is thanks to his father that we do. The Love Letter is actually a 
collection bill, from Tender Lender, a company veterans would know from 
the second Phoenix Wright game, a loan shark company. Lance needs money real
fast, and this is a prime was of getting the cash. So present the Love Letter.
And finally, he admits it. With this, Lance will tell you more about the 
stolen costumes.

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Stolen Costumes
  -> Blue Badger = Lauren Paups
     Proto Badger = Lance Amano
     Bad Badger = Oliver Deacon

Lauren will then say that she killed her own father, and now, we need to 
question her again. Say, why can't this be simple, like an episode of Law and

 - Chain of Events - 

 - That man was not my father! I mean ... Because ... at the stadium ...

 - ... there was a Bad Badger pulling the suitcase with $1 million in it.

 - But that Badger pointed his gun at me, aiming to shoot me dead!

 - That's why I ... I used the gun I got from Lance ...!

 - There was a gunshot, the other person crumpled to the ground, and I ran,
   scared for my life.

Well, again, there is no information there that contradicts any of the 
evidence that we have on hand. So we need to press for some more information
out of Paups. So, press the third statement, that is the only one that seems
to be questionable. With this, she says Deacon pointed the gun, from his
left hand at her.

 - But that Badger pointed the gun in his left hand at me, aiming to shoot me

Now, we have a problem. If you look carefully through all the evidence, look
at the Devorae Dossier, and it will mention that Devorae was right-handed. Why
would a person who is right-handed hold a gun in his left hand, especially if
they were planning to shoot someone. That doesn't make sense, it would be 
easier to change hands. So present the Colin Devorae Dossier here. 

Now, Lang will interject again, saying that she could be mistaken, but with
him towing the suitcase behind him, that is quite unlikely. Therefore, 
something isn't right. So, with two pieces of contradictory evidence, what
is correct? Simple, both have to be correct. 

With this, they would need both hands free on order to do both, considering
that it would be difficult otherwise. They wouldn't need to wear the lower
set of the body, and we can prove it, present the Bad Badger's Head that has
been sitting in the organiser, gathering dust. All a person needs to do is
to have the head, and the body can be of a different part.

Now, which Badger body is it? It can't be the Pink Badger, the costume 
wasn't stolen. And Lauren was using the Blue Badger costume. Both Bad Badger
costumes were in use, one by the victim, and the other was dumped. So that
only leaves the Proto Badger, so present it. 

With that, that means that Lance was the fake Deacon, and what happened at
the stadium was nothing more than a mere set-up, which does make a lot more
sense, there is no blood at the stadium, and even with the costume on, there
would have been some blood, you would think. With that, Edgeworth points out
Lance as the real murderer. And to rub that salt into the wound, Lance happens
to be left-handed. 

Again, Lang will but in, and say that it shouldn't matter, because the gun
would still have gone off and the badger isn't exactly bulletproof. So how 
could the gun have not killed Lance? Simply, the Proto Badger from the
beginning said that the model gun that was ripped from the Bad Badger was 
a model gun, only firing blanks. So present the Model Gun here, that would
explain the lack of gunshot wounds. 

However, Paups has thrown that gun into the sea. With that, it is nothing
but conjecture, there is no evidence to suggest what Edgeworth is saying 
is true. Now, for some more testimony, that Deacon was alive when Lance was

 - What Ms. Paups Saw - 

 - I came back to the hideout long after the other two.

 - By that time, Lance had already subdued and restrained Mr. Deacon.

 - He had tied Mr. Deacon securely to the beam in the room next door.

 - After that, the two of us put on our costumes and made our escape.

There is a problem, who was tied securely to the beam next door? With that,
we know that there is a problem her, Edgeworth was tied to the beam, not
Deacon. So press the third statement to get a nice piece of testimony.

 - The captive had a Bad Badger's head on, so I'm absolutely sure it was
   Mr. Deacon.

No, she isn't really sure, and with that, press the statement and then 
raise an objection. With this, go ahead and present the Bad Badger's head
once more. This is the head that she must have saw, because it means 
absolutely nothing, we have a head right now. The person she really saw, 
of course, was Miles Edgeworth. Funny, now Lance is hiding behind Lang,
his only source of protection. Poor, poor baby. He needs someone to hold
his hand. 

With that, it seems to go out of control, except Ernest Amano comes in. 
With this, in he comes with evidence that he has fished from the sea, there
is a Bad Badger costume, as well as a revolver. And this evidence is going
to be added to the organiser. And this is bad news, a revolver has been
found with Lauren's fingerprints on it. 

Anyway, inspect the revolver, the base of the head, with little mirror shards
in it, and finally, the bullet wound. All three points are of interest. 

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Victim's Costume 
  -> Worn at time of shooting. Gunpowder burn is proof he was shot from 
     point blank.

 - New Evidence Received - 

  -> Used to kill Deacon. Was originally stolen from guard by victim during

 Mirror Fragments
  -> These were found inside the victim's costume. Why were they there in the
     first place?

Lance is hopeful that this will convince Edgeworth otherwise, but he is sorely
wrong, he is the murderer, and we will prove it.

 - Decisive Evidence - 

 - Make no mistake. There are fingerprints on that murderous gun.

 - And they prove that it was Lolli who killed Oliver.

 - But Oliver was also after Lolli's life.

 - So Mr. Edgeworth,. even you must see that Lolli was only acting in self-

The music gets into a higher phase, meaning we are drawing to a close. Now, 
press the first statement. There is a problem here, and with that, raise an
objection. At this point, present the Victim's Costume. There is a problem, if
Lauren killed Deacon, then her fingerprints SHOULDN'T be there, after all, she
was in a costume as well, and that would effectively not leave prints, what
is the use of a full costume if that wasn't the case?

With that, it will effectively prove that the supposition that fingerprints 
mean anything. Lance tries to keep blaming his girlfriend that it wasn't his
fault, great loving boyfriend is he. Now, we also have evidence that the 
stadium job was a set-up. Present the Victim's Costume yet again.

Why? Because, the killing at the stadium was done at a distance. And the 
victim was shot from a point blank range, as in, right next to the victim, 
gun touching the body. This is a flashback to the von Karma case back in the
first Phoenix Wright game. Anyway, it means that the stadium job was a set-up,
to frame Lauren. Present the gunshot entry wound to prove your point. 

With this, where is the real murder scene? Edgeworth flashes back through all
the places that he has been to, and it is obvious. It took place before 
Edgeworth has knocked out. And where was a broken mirror, explaining the 
mirror fragments? The Haunted House of course. Present the Mirror Fragments
as proof that the murder took place there. 

With that, Edgeworth proposes that Lance Amano killed Oliver Deacon in the
Haunted House with the Revolver. Sounds a bit like Cluedo, if you ask me. With
this, the theft of the Badgermobile will also match the time the approximate
time the body dropped, dead cold. 

However, Lang will point out that there was a mirror in the kidnapper's 
hideout as well, so it is perfectly possible for the mirror fragments to have
come from there. But with no shards. Edgeworth objects, to be met by 

However, Edgeworth is certain that there is evidence, even though he doesn't
have any yet. However, he is sure that it took place when he made the drop off
of the ransom money, and at that time, Deacon and Lance were in there. 

With this, Edgeworth asks for permission for access from the wolf, and he 
accepts your request for some reason, and you are not to touch anything. 
But in a nice twist, it turns out that Amano owns the haunted house, and 
that is a problem. Turns out that Amano used the ransom money to purchase
the haunted house. It seems that the good old man was covering his son the
whole time, whilst you were questioning Lance and Lauren. What can we do now?

                                                              To be continued.

[4.07] Day One, Part 3 - Re-Creation, Part 1

* Date - March 13, 4:27 PM            *
*                                     *
* Location - Gatewater Land Main Gate *

Without permission to enter the house, we can't investigate the real crime
scene. What about a search warrant? Anyway, Kay always has an option for you, 
use the Little Thief to recreate the crime scene. With enough information 
from people and testimony, then we have a method to investigate the crime
scene, virtually. And luckily for you, Gumshoe has the blueprints for the 
house as well. Looks like we need a lot of logic to get through this little

Okay, we know that Edgeworth dropped to money inside the dining room and 
walked out, witnessing the badger that was sitting there. And when Edgeworth
started walking, he was ambushed. Where was the attacker hiding you wonder?
We all saw the cutscene, and the answer was that slumped over badger. 

With this, Edgey questions lance, and he offers him a chance to confess, but
Lance says that he came to the house, but didn't go inside. That means that
Deacon must have assaulted and knocked out Edgeworth, given that he was

Because Deacon was the Bad Badger, Kay inputs that. Now, we need to start our
little investigation.


 Haunted House

Now, first of all, examine the badger. What was Edgeworth hit with. This is
quite simple. In the hallway, there is only one thing, that is the sword that
is sticking out from that pile. That makes it easy, so point it out as the
weapon used in knocking out Edgeworth. So, present the Broken Sword. With
that, it is possible the kidnapper took that sword back to the hideout to lock
the door. And it also eliminates evidence. 

Now, with the tests, there is only one test you want to run, and that is to 
run it with Luminol, to check for blood. Prints is useless, they were wearing
costumes, so there will be no prints. With that, we get updated evidence.

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Broken Prop Sword
  -> Culprit hit me in the right temple area with this. Touch the Check Button
     for details.

Now, with the sword in hand, we can deduce the contradiction that is in the
picture. What is the problem? Simple, Deacon was right handed, and the sword
is in his left, so that makes it hard to swing a sword like that. So present
Devorae's Dossier right here whilst pointing out the sword as the 

Lang helps you out for once, he points out that it is impossible for this to
be the case, that Devorae is the culprit, because with the gun in the right
hand, and since Devorae is right handed, a sword as well, how the hell can you
manage to do something such as holding a gun and swinging a sword at the same
time. It is impossible. 

With this, Edgeworth mentions that the culprit held the weapon in the right
hand. He has evidence. Present the Broken Prop Sword here. If the weapon
struck Edgeworth in the right temple, it is improbable that the badger held it
in the left hand because the sword would have to go over the head, or behind
him, and then swing it, whilst if it was in the right hand, it is easy to hit
the person in front of you's right temple. That and the blood evidence helps 
as well. 

With this, it eliminates the Bad Badger as the suspect and the person who
hit and knocked out Edgeworth. Therefore, it couldn't have been Deacon who
hit Edgeworth, and that leaves the other person who was near the House, and
yes, that means Lance. And he buckles so easily under pressure, he admits
it was him. And with this new data in the re-creation, it looks a lot more
like what we saw. 

Lang interrupts, as usual, and mentions that there is a trick to this haunted
house. He gets the assistant, Shih-na, the information, all the information
that one needs is in the pamphlet. With that, it appears that the Badger at 
the end of the hallway was just that, a badger, but it was a doll. This 
updates the evidence at hand.

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Gatewater Land Pamphlet
  -> Updated with the Disappearing Badger image

With that, Lang says that your weak logic has ended up in the wrong spot,
which is interesting. He must have something then. With that, the re-creation
is updated once more. There has to be a contradiction here somewhere, the
re-creation is all wrong. 

Well, with this, we need to investigate. Investigate the badger at the end
of the hallway. With the Blue Badger, you won't see it at first, but when
you compare that badger, and the Blue Badger Bible, there is a problem, the
sash on the badger is the wrong way around. That isn't right. Present that
as the contradictory evidence with the sash in question.

 - New Logic Received - 
   Blue Badger In Reverse
    -> The Blue Badger in the pamphlet is wearing his belt in the reverse 

Now, examine the mirror right next to the badger. This will give you some more
information that you can use, and that the shards appear to be different, and
that will update some evidence.

 - New Logic Received - 

   Mirror Shards
    -> Like a mirror house - haunted house hybrid, this place is full of 

 - Evidence Updated - 

   Mirror Fragments
    -> Different from the mirrors on the walls. Very thick and has a design 
       on the back. 

Now, with this, we can place the two pieces of logic together, the reason why
the Blue Badger is reversed is that there is a mirror, so it will make the
belt appear on the opposite side. With this mirror, then that means that the
building might not be a straight hallway, but it would more likely be an L
shape due to the mirrors. Why did they do that? Present the Gatewater Land
Pamphlet again, it is merely an attraction to the park.

So what did they do instead. To make the Blue Badger disappear, all they
would need to do is to move the mirror wall. Beyond the mirror is a hallway,
so all one would need to do is to hide behind the mirror until the path was
clear to attack, then move out of the mirror, and strike, hence, the Badger
disappearing. That also explains the pattern on the back of the mirror 
fragments, it will blend in with the wall if it is not in use. 

With this, we know where the attacker was hiding, behind the mirror, which
is a very big blind spot. Kay then points out that the mirror wall should
be broken right now, after all, we do have the mirror fragments right now,
so it should be broken. Question is, when was it broken. With the mirror
fragments inside the costume, it means that the victim was in the room when
the mirror was indeed, broken. 

Then Edgeworth remembers something, when the phone hung up with the phone
call, the mirror broke. With this, the room is updated with what really did
happen before Edgeworth entered the area. With this, the mirror broke, and
the attacker hid behind the branch hallway. 

With this, the broken mirror will present an inconsistancy, what is the
problem? Well, the slumped over body, that is behind the mirror. So present
the area that was behind the mirror, when it was existing, as part of the

So, who is that badget hiding in the corner? It is simple, it isn't the
dead body, and it isn't the attacker, so it has to be the victim, the
dead body. That makes it the victim in this case, and because of that, that
is the real scene of the crime. Present the Victim's Costume. 

Lang tries to play the card on why Edgeworth didn't hear a gunshot, but that
is explained by the house itself, and the noise it was making. And with this, 
the pieces fall together, finally, who was in the house with the victim, and
hence, the murderer? Lance. Oh, and look at that, rich boy has a cry. Too bad
the cry robbed a man of his life. 

Eh, looks like the interfering Ernest Amano isn't safe either, Lance gets 
carted away along with his father, for tampering with evidence. What is 
interesting is that Lang came all this way to see Amano. What the? It is
something about a case 10 years ago. It is the KG-8 Incident. 

WAIT! That's the incident that Portsman had a tape of during the first case.
That is probably the reason the files went missing all that time ago. It 
seems that the trigger in the case was a scandal in the Amano Group. And it
is due to a smuggling ring. The pieces fall together, the first case led us
to stolen files of the case, and the second opened our eyes to a smuggling

And this gets even more interesting, the ringleader of the smuggling ring 
is none other than Mr. Colin Devorae, the secretary of Ernest Amano. The
victim in this case. Lang suspects Amano's involvement in this. With this, 
that is where Devorae hid, he did time for Amano and in exchange, safety
from the police. 

And in comes a HOLD IT! And well, if it isn't Portsman. That's right, him
and his partner, Buddy Faith haul him down. Remember, this case was the day
before he was arrested for the murder of his partner. With that, Lang sulks

It seems that Lang is thankful though, Edgeworth pressed Lance hard enough
that Ernest tampered with evidence, leading to his arrest. He then mentions
something about a corrupt prosecutor that is helping Amano and the smuggling
ring. Well, that is interesting. Anyway, Shih-na will tell you why Lang hates
the courts, and prosecutors so much. It is quite interesting. 

Anyway, back on the corrupt prosecutor. I have a sneaking suspicion I know
who it is. Anyway, the case is over for now. And it is here that Edgeworth
goes back to his office, for that case. And Edgeworth, stealing a young 
girl's heart, again. And him, in typical Phoenix style, has no idea what the
hell is going on.

And it looks like there is another blast from the past. This isn't the first
time Kay has met Gumshoe and Edgeworth. It takes us back 7 years, to when
Edgeworth first met Kay and interestingly enough, Gumshoe. That will be the
next case. For now, the case is over.

                                                                       THE END

[5.01] Day One - Investigation, Part 1

 -- 7 Years Earlier --

Watch the story of a case 7 years earlier, it is the one you will be involved
in as Miles Edgeworth. Mack Rell, a murderer who has killed someone in cold
blood, as claimed that the prosecutor of the case, Byrne Faraday, is the

* Date - September 10, 3:20 PM *
*                              *
* Location - District Court    *
*            3rd Floor Lobby   *

It appears that this will be the first time that Edgeworth enters the 
courtroom as a prosecutor, but everyone who has played Trials and Tribulations
knows that this isn't the case. So something is about to happen. Anyway, in
comes Manfred von Karma, Edgeworth's mentor, who in 5 years will suffer his
first and final defeat in the courtroom at the hands of Phoenix Wright. 

Anyway, talk to von Karma about the case, how Faraday is a bit idealistic
and all. Edgeworth will talk about the case, and then give a small recap
on what has happened. A murder took place on the 8th of September, 2 days
ago, at the Cohdopian Embassy, when both countries were still one. The 
victim, Mr. Deid Mann (Dead Man), was killed by the defendent, Mr. Mack
Rell. He was arrested for possession of the murder weapon, a handgun. 

At that same time, the Yatagarasu infiltrated the embassy. Mack Rell claimed
originally that he was the Yatagarasu but he did not kill Deid Mann. In light
of the security footage, Mack Rell accepted that he murdered Deid Mann, but
claimed that he was ordered to do so by the Yatagarasu, and that the identity
of the Yatagarasu was Byrne Faraday, who is the prosecutor Edgeworth is 
replacing. What is interesting is that this case is now regarded as the second
KG-8 incident. 

Talking to von Karma about the Second KG-8 Incident will net you a piece of

 - New Evidence Received - 

 KG-8 Incident Overview
  -> Received from my mentor as reference about KG-8. Touch the Check Button 
     for details.

von Karma will talk about the Amano group scandal, how the secretary of Ernest
Amano, the man from the previous case, was arrested under the suspicion of
him smuggling. That very man was Colin Devorae, the victim of the previous
case. Now, Cece Yew was an employee of the group and was witness to this 
crime. She blew the whistle on the case. Unfortunately, she was killed before
she could give testimony on the issue. Manny Coachen was arrested for her 
murder, but was found not guilty because of a lack of evidence. 

The reason it is called the second KG-8 incident is because Deid Mann was 
about to testify about the smuggling group, and similar to the first incident,
he was murdered before he could testify about it. what that, talk to von Karma
again about the Yatagarasu, and how the item stolen from the embassy as sent
to the police. A noble thief indeed. Anyway, with that, von Karma directs 
Edgeworth to talk to Faraday, he was in charge of the case. 

Anyway, in comes a young girl, asking Edgeworth to convert some change for 
her. And look who it is. Anyway, into the courtroom we go.

* Date - September 10, 4:00 PM *
*                              *
* Location - District Court    *
*            Courtroom No. 3   *

Enter the courtroom, and well, no defence attorney is present. Nor the judge.
Nor is Faraday, who is meant to bring over the evidence. In comes the judge,
and he does appear to have legs, unlike all the previous Ace Attorney games.
With this, in barges a younger Gumshoe, and tells yu that in Defendant Lobby
No. 2, Faraday, and the defendent, Mack Rell, were murdered. In a court of
law. Looks like we need to start investigating.

* Date - September 10       *

* Location - District Court *
*            Hallway        *

Edgeworth rushes to the crime scene, blocked by a detective and the defence
attorney. Anyway, talk to the detective blocking your path, and he will
introduce himself as Detective Tyrell Badd, who is probably the most badass
character in this game, after Lang, the reason you'll find out in the next
case. Anyway, talk to him since he was requested to testify today at the
trial. Talk to him, and then talk to the defence attorney.

She will introduce herself as Calisto Yew after laughing a good deal at
Edgeworth over his seriousness. Then, talk to Gumshoe, he needs no real 
introduction anyway. He will give you his testimony on the issue.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Det. Gumshoe's Testimony
  -> Was in hall on guard duty. Other than gunshot, didn't hear a sign of a 

Anyway, with that, we have nothing much to do. We can't investigate with
Badd blocking the doorway. In walks a bailiff who says that Manny Coachen 
will want to talk to Yew. That's interesting, and something to remember for
later. Anyway, von Karma walks in, and gets told to shut up effectively by
Badd, which makes him even more of a badass. Anyway, von Karma puts Edgeworth
in charge of the investigation, where it is objected.

By none else than Franziska von Karma herself. She looks a lot stranger 
without her whip. Anyway, von Karma puts both of you on as the investigators
of the case, giving Badd a premature heart attack. And he tells Badd 
effectively to shut up. Well, Badd runs after him objecting his head off, but
time to get started on the crime scene.

* Location - District Court        *
*            Defendant Lobby No. 2 *

Well, the crime scene is a bit interesting, it makes it that both of them
killed each other at the same time. Edgeworth already has Gumshoe under his
thumb with a salary check. Anyway, lets start.


 Defendant Lobby No. 2

First step is to investigate the bodies. That is your first order of 
business. First, you need to examine the gun that Faraday is holding, then the
knife that Rell is holding, and finally, the bloody plastic bad that is on
the bottom left hand corner. Then, look at Faraday's other hand, the one that
isn't holding the gun.

 - New Evidence Received - 

    -> Was Faraday's evidence from Embassy staff killing case. It was found in
       his hand.

    -> I believe Faraday brought this as evidence. It was found in Rell's 

 - New Logic Received - 

 Plastic Bags Strewn About
  -> Plastic bags used to store evidence are strewn all over the floor. 

 Ink Stain
  -> Mr. Faraday has ink on his left hand. Why is there ink on such a place

That seems to be all the clues you'll find there. Anyway, the bodies will be
turned over, so you can investigate this crime a bit further. Investigate the
gunshot wound on Rell, and since there isn't a powder burn on it, that means
that the gun was fired some distance away. Next, investigate the fountain
pen that is in Faraday's breast pocket. 

 - Evidence Updated - 

  -> Found in Faraday's hand. Bullet that killed Rell was fired from a few 
     yards away.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Fountain Pen in Pocket
  -> The fountain pen in Mr. Faraday's pocket has an especially nice nib.

Again, that's all the clues you will have for now. It seems that both men
were killed with pieces of evidence that Faraday brought in. Faraday shot at
Rell, who then countered and stabbed him. But that still doesn't seem right,
according to Edgeworth.

  -> Notes pertaining to Byrne Faraday and Mack Rell. Touch the Check Button
     for details.

  -> Victim
     Bryne Faraday (Age: 40)
     Mack Rell (Age: 32)

     Time of Death
     September 10
     Approximately 4 PM
     Discovered immediately after a gunshot was heard.

     Remarks About the Bodies
     Faraday died of a knife stab to the chest.
     Rell died of a bullet wound to the chest. There is no gunpowder burn on
     his clothes, suggesting he as shot from a few yards away. 

Now, we are done with the bodies. Investigate the table, the one with the tea
set and the evidence bags, to get some more logic to play around with.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Neat and Tidy Table
  -> The tea set and plastic bags on top of the table are completely 

Now, this is the time to start connecting your logic together. Connect the 
Neat and Tidy Table with the fact that the plastic bags were strewn about. It
is clear that they weren't there as a sign of a struggle. The blood on the bag
belongs to Mr. Faraday, which is strange, so that gets added to evidence.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Plastic Bag
  -> One of the bags stewn on floor of Lobby No. 2. Has Faraday's blood on it.

Now connect the last pieces of logic together, it is possible that the ink on
Faraday's hands belongs to the fountain pen. With that report that it is, it 
can be deducted that Faraday was left handed, why else would there be ink 
stains on the left hand? With this, you get another piece of evidence.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Mr. Faraday's Fountain Pen
  -> Fountain pen used by the left-handed Faraday. Looks like it has a quality

If you are wondering, a nib means the tip of the pen. Now, we can continue our
investigation, look through the open windows of the room. We get some more 
logic to play with.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Lobby No. 2 Window
  -> No human can climb through these barred windows. The scene of flowers is 
     in the air. 

Now, the final thing to do, investigate the TV. It may not seem important but
it actually will be crucial to the case later on. With that, you pretty much
have finished this investigation. However, something isn't right with the
dead bodies, Edgeworth points out. There is a contradiction in the scene. 

What is the problem. Faraday is holding the gun in his right hand, but we
already established that Faraday was left handed, so why would he carry a 
weapon in his non-primary hand? It doesn't make sense. So point out the gun 
use the fountain pen to contradict the scene. So, the only thing that does
make sense is that someone else, a third party, planted the gun in Faraday's
hand. With that, investigation is complete. 

[5.02] Day One - Questioning, Part 1

* Location - District Court        *

Well, we have investigated the crime scene properly. With this, Badd will 
hand over the autopsy report for you. What is interesting is that Rell might
have survived for a bit after the shooting, but Faraday died instantly after
the stabbing. That doesn't make sense, how did Faraday fall on top of the
victim then? That means there has to be a third party involved in this 

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Crime Scene Notes
  -> Notes pertaining to Byrne Faraday and Mack Rell. Touch the Check Button
     for details.

  -> Remarks About the Bodies
     Faraday died of a knife stab to the chest. The shock from the stabbing
     caused instantaneous death.
     Rell died of a bullet wound to the chest. There is no gunpowder burn on
     his clothes, suggesting he as shot from a few yards away. It's possible
     he was alive for a little while after being shot.

Looks like we have all the information that we can dig out of this little
crime scene. Franziska will make her own theory of what happened, and it is
up to you to disprove it, saying that she is wrong. 

 - What Happened - 

 - Mr. Faraday's death was instantaneous, while Mr. Rell survived for a short

 - From this, it is obvious that Mr. Faraday died after he shot Mr. Rell.

 - And Mr. Rell, while on the brink of death, stole Mr. Faraday's knife and 
   stabbed him.

 - Those are the facts of this case.

Now, what is strange is that Rell and Faraday struggled. That doesn't make 
sense, so press that statement, the third one, to get a new bit of information
to play with.

 - They struggled, and Mr. Rell used the last of his strength to 
   counterattack Mr. Faraday. 

Now we have a problem, if they were struggling, then what does that 
contradict? It contradict's Gumshoe's testimony that he didn't hear any 
signs of a struggle. Well, then what happened? With that, Franziska suggest
that Rell stabbed Faraday first, who then shot Rell with the gun. Now, 
something is indeed off, so point that out. 

It doesn't add up, if Rell stabbed Faraday first, then that means Faraday
pretty much shot at Rell at point blank range, which means there should have
been gunpowder burns. Gunpowder burns occur when the victim is shot at close
range, because the barrel of the gun is hot enough to singe the surface of 
what it is touching. So, present the Crime Scene Notes as evidence that 
something isn't right. Also, the more important thing is, Faraday died
INSTANTLY after being stabbed. 

So, what is the problem with the crime scene. It is the order in which the
bodies fell, Faraday should be on the bottom, not the top. Because of the 
order of the bodies, Rell must have died first, then Faraday. Otherwise, then
that is flawed. So Franziska goes for round two.

 - What Happened, Part 2 - 

 - It was just change that Mr. Faraday's body fell on top of Mr. Rell's.

 - The two bodies fell into a pile...

 - ... which indicates that they attacked each other at the same time.

 - It really doesn't matter in the slightest that they fell in the opposite

Now, we already have the problem. They attacked at the same time, that just
doesn't add up. As I have already pointed out, they could not have attacked
at the same time, gunpowder burns are missing. So press at that statement.
With this, you will get a new line to play with.

 - That fact indicates that they attacked each other at the same time from 
   close range.

Now, we can present the evidence that she is full of crap. Present the Handgun
here, because of the lack of powder burns, that indicates that the fatal 
bullet was fired a few yards away, and that isn't exactly close range. As 
such, that contradicts her little theory. So, who is the person with the
murderous intent? It can't be either of them, it just doesn't add up with what
we have now learnt from the crime scene. So select neither man.

With this, it makes sense that there was a third party, someone has to have 
arranged the crime scene, there were just too many inconsistancies. What is 
the evidence that there was a third person? The bloody plastic bag says that
there was a struggle or someone arranged it so that there was a struggle, but
according to Gumshoe, there wasn't a struggle for as long as he was there. 

Badd then will say that there is still a fair amount of investigating left to
do, and you get an objection from a new voice, Calisto Yew. She orders 
Detective Badd to place Detective Gumshoe under arrest, because he says that
he was always outside guarding the room, but the Judge now says that he didn't
see Gumshoe there. During the recess, there was a time period where there was
no one guarding the hallway. 

Now, Edgeworth will interrupt, after all, he is the lead investigator of the
little investigation. The question to ask Gumshoe, who is accused of the crime
of this double murder is his motive. What could his motive for murdering the
two men possibly be? Gumshoe says that he has no grudge, but Yew again 
interrupts and gives you a reason why there could have been a motive. 

 - Gumshoe's Motive - 

 - It was .... about a week ago.

 - I saw the detective get chewed out by a livid Faraday in front of the

 - He stood there super pale, as Mr. Faraday yelled, "That's a salary cut 
   for you, you nitwit!"

 - A brand new detective suddenly getting his salary cut -- that's a reason 
   enough for a grudge.

 - Well? How's that for a "perfect explanation"?

Well, we need to dig for more information, that's for sure. I don't think
that is perfect, otherwise, Edgeworth wouldn't be alive in future games since
he has docked Gumshoe's salary to the point where he has to pay to work. So
press the final statement. Raise an objection to her use of perfect, asking
what was the motive for murdering Mr. Rell. If Gumshoe had a grudge against
Faraday, why get Rell involved with it? So, with that, she will be forced to 
give some new testimony on why Gumshoe killed both men. 

 - Motive to Kill the Men - 

 - There's no one out there with a motive to kill both Mr. Faraday and Mr. 

 - All you really have to establish that someone had a grudge against one 
   of the two men.

 - Mr. Rell, who happened to be there, became a witness to Mr. Faraday's

 - Therefore, he was killed out of necessity, and set up to look like they
   had killed each other.

With this, we may have a problem. Present the KG-8 Overview file at the
first statement. There is one person who wanted Mr. Faraday dead, and that
person also appeared at the courthouse today, one Mr. Manny Coachen. Well,
Edgeworth wants to investigate him, but is stopped by Badd, who says it 
is a waste of time because he was in the viewing gallery watching the trial.
And the cops were also keeping a close eye on the guy, so that rules him 
out as a suspect. 

Well, that brings the suspicion back on Gumshoe, so we need to continue 
with our investigation. Well, Edgeworth will have to question Yew, and as 
you can guess, it is about the KG-8 incident. She says that she has nothing
to do with it, so you will need to present the actual incident file. It is
simple, she is related through the victim of the case, a Cece Yew. With 
that, she will tell you everything she knows about the case.

Her sister, Cece Yew, was the one who blew the whistle about the Amano 
Group. As such, she was killed before she could testify about the smuggling
at hand. Coachen murdered Cece, that much we know, but there wasn't enough
evidence. Faraday admitted that there was such evidence, but that was
stolen, by the Amano group, so they were covering for each other. That is 
why she is the defence lawyer in the second KG-8 incident. Ask about Manny
Coachen, and you won't get much. Well, that's all we'll get out of her. 

Well, Gumshoe is still a suspect, and there isn't much we can do with that.

                                                              To Be Continued.

[5.03] Day One, Part 2 - Investigation, Part 1

* Date - September 10, 4:45 PM *
*                              *
* Location - District Court    *
*            3rd Floor Lobby   *

Well, Gumshoe is still here, and fuming as always. Well, von Karma is still
annoyed at this case, and will have Faraday's evidence transferred to you,
but for now, he wishes to assign you to a difference case. But then 
Franziska goes and softens him up to allow you both to continue your little
investigation of the matter of who killed Faraday and Rell. So, your first
step is to question Yew, since Gumshoe is still a little pissed. 

Well, Yew will tell you exactly where she was when the gunshot was heard, and
that was right next door, with Detective Badd. Anyway, talk with her to try
to squeeze a little more out of her, and you really won't get that much. 
After Edgeworth gets a few more whips, we don't learn all that much, except
that she was with Detective Badd in the room next door when the murders took
place. Now, talk to Gumshoe. 

Gumshoe will tell you that the reason Faraday was annoyed at him was due to
him being late on his first day as a detective. He will also say that he was
at the hallway at 3:20 PM to guard the place under the orders of Detective
Badd. With that, the next step is Gumshoe being uncooperative with you. 
Franziska goes and searches his personage, and you get his annual bonus
check ... of $5. That's a lot. He mentions that he had no cash on him until
he cashed in his check, of $5. Wow, he is really rich. Well, that appears to
be evidence.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Annual Bonus Envelope
  -> Det. Gumshoe's annual bonus of $5. Literally had no money on him until 
     he cashed this.

An Officer will arrive to take him away, but Edgeworth wants to do a single
check before he lets him off. So present the Testimony that he gave earlier
to him to see the reaction. Well, ther eisn't much we can do, except we need
to investigate the Hallway in which Gumshoe was guarding. But before this
happens, a little girl walks in and kicks Edgeworth on the back of the kness,
tripping him over. 

In her rush, the girl dropped a wrapper on the floor. Well, that gets added 
to your evidence, and look, there is actually something inside this packet.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Swiss Roll 
  -> Swiss roll dropped bu the mysterious young girl. Says "Courthouse 
     Special" on it. 

Now, we need to do something, either confront the Judge, who is a witness
in this, or investigate the Hallway. I suggest the Hallway, because that's
the path I took. 

* Date - September 10       *
*                           *
* Location - District Court *
*            Hallway        *

We see Detective Badd questioning the Judge on what he saw, after all, he is
the one who said that he didn't see Detective Gumshoe. Anyway, time to head
into the Hallway, and talk to the Judge, who bit his tongue again, too bad
he doesn't do this in court when there are OBJECTION!s flying left, right
and centre. With this, we start our investigation.



First order of business, talk with the Judge. He does look a bit more, well,
alert than he does in court, where he is pretty much senile. Though his O_O
look doesn't change, and still carrys his gavel around with him. Edgeworth
mentions that he would want to avoid a trial run by this judge, well, not 
going to happen.

The Judge mentions that he saw into the Hallway from the Men's Restroom from
the opposite side of the little gap between it and the hallway. When he looked
across, he saw Gumshoe purchasing something from the vending machine, and then
when he was about to leave the restroom, the Judge saw no Gumshoe. And with 
that, that is all you're going to get from the Judge, so that's about it. 

With that, talk to Detective Badd. Ask about Gumshoe and his movements. He 
seems to get really pissed off that Franziska said that he couldn't guard
Faraday, and Edgeworth somehow managed to get Franziska to apologise. When
Badd came back up from waiting for Gumshoe, he encounters Yew that says 
Faraday is mad and dragged Rell into the room next door, where the murder took
place. Faraday said not to interrupt, so Gumshoe was told to stand guard from
then on. And this took place about 30 minutes before the gunshot. 

What is interesting is that Badd knows that Gumshoe didn't leave his post, 
because a guard at the lobby didn't see Gumshoe leave. As such, the only 
person without an alibi is Gumshoe. This doesn't look good. Anyway, on the 
next topic, Badd reacted to the gunshot, and immediately grabbed Gumshoe, who
was in the hallway, and entered the room, and found the bodies. And then Badd
does the most badass thing in the Ace Attorney series, he dodges Franziska's
whip, and moreover, he threatens to arrest her for obstruction of justice if
she does it again. No one has dared to do that to her, except Badd.

Well, there is only one more thing to ask of Badd, and that is the time of
the gunshot. He mentions that it was just before the recess was about over,
so it was close to 4 PM. With this, you get his testimony.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Det. Badd's Testimony
  -> He heard the gunshot right before the trial was about to start again.

Well, that is all you're going to get out of Detective Badd for now. So lets
actually do some investigating. Ok, lets investigate the windowsill to your
left, that is going to contain some clues.

First, examine that little pink piece of plastic. That little piece of trash
will give you some new logic to mess around with. Also, investigate the 
cactus that sits there, as that will get you some more information as well.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Pink Piece of Trash
  -> Piece of pink trash found on the windowsill of the hallway window. Made
     of rubber.

 Windowsill Cactus
  -> Potted cactus sitting on the hallway window's windowsill. Its needles
     are dangerous. 

With this, head down to the next bit, and investigate the dirty handprint
that is on the bench. Who dares litter in a courtroom like this? This is 
simply unacceptable. With this, it is found out that the handprint here
belongs to Detective Gumshoe. So that big lug dare leave a mark on the bench
like that? Well, there goes another portion of his salary. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Det. Gumshoe's Fingerprints
  -> Left on the hallway bench. Black smudge emits the scent of sweet sugar.

Now, look on the floor below the bench to find a little colony of ants there
doing something. It appears that the ants are there as a result of eating the
Swiss Roll and someone left the crumbs on the floor.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Swiss Roll Crumbs
  -> Found on the floor under the bench. A hill of ants are attracted to its
     sweet scent. 

And with that, that is all the information that you are going to get out of
this little area. Now, with that, investigate the Courthouse Special vending
machine to have a look at the selection, and also to find more evidence of
who did what.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Vending Machine
  -> A vending machine that sells Courthouse Special goods. A few seet items 
     are for sale. 

With that, we need to combine our Logic together. Connect the pink piece of
trash with the windowsill cactus. It is because that the pink piece of trash
is made of rubber, so probably a balloon, which that little girl did have, and
the cactus, of no fault of its own, popped the balloon. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Pink Balloon
  -> I just know I've seen a pink balloon around ... Found on windowsill of 
     hallway window.

With that, combine the Swiss Roll crumbs with the Vending Machine. It makes
sense, the crumbs came from the roll, which in turn came from the vending
machine. With this in mind, Edgeworth suggests that Gumshoe was sitting on
the bench, eating a Swiss Roll, and then dirtied the bench. Of all things, the

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Det. Gumshoe's Fingerprints
  -> Left on the hallways bench. Det. Gumshoe apparently sat here as he ate a
     Swiss roll.

However, if Gumshoe did eat that Swiss roll, it will contradict what we 
already know. Now, head to the vending machine and deduce what is wrong. The
problem here is the price of the roll, the $6, and Gumshoe's bonus. Gumeshoe
said earlier that he didn't have any money till he cashed in that check, which
was worth $5. So, he couldn't afford the roll, where did the extra $1 come 
from? With that, we update more evidence, and complete our investigation.

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Swiss Roll
  -> Swiss roll dropped by the mysterious young girl. It's priced at 2 for $6.

With this completed investigation, we need to see the Judge again, and now
pick holes in his testimony. He will know how hard it is, and how painful it
is when you are questioned by lawyers all day. 

[5.04] Day One, Part 2 - Questioning, Part 1

* Date - September 10, 5:15 PM *
*                              *
* Location - District Court    *
*            Courtroom No. 3   *

I still love the Judge's eyes, the O_O look still gives me a good laugh. 
Anyway, time to question him a little on what he saw. And Franziska hurts
him even further by saying that a judge is nothing but a common witness 
before a von Karma. That's gotta hurt. And he bits his tongue again. Yes, we
get to argue with the Judge.

 - What I Saw at Recess - 

 - During the recess ... I, um ... I went to the restroom.

 - There is a window on the hallway side. In other words, I could see into 
   the hallway.

 - As I entered, I saw that detective buying something from the vending

 - But when I was about to exit the restroom, he had completely disappeared!

 - A detective that goes missing while on duty ... That sounds might 
   suspicious to meeeee!

Well, he certainly knows how to remain calm. Anyway, we know why Gumshoe
couldn't have been seen, he was sitting down and eating that lovely Swiss roll
of his. Therefore, he couldn't have been seen because he was eating. So 
present Det. Gumshoe's Fingerprints on the second last statement saying that
he had completely disappeared. 

The Judge gets all excited again, saying that not content with murder, Gumshoe
had to dirty a bench in the courthouse. So Edgeworth points out why the Judge
could not see Gumshoe, the window is quite high up, and whilst sitting down,
it would cover all of Gumshoe up. Therefore, the testimony proves that Gumshoe
was indeed in the hallway. 

And the Judge yells HOLD IT! Wow, I really do think he needs a voice actor for
that. And the funny thing is, he remains something else, and asks that he be
able to testify one more time. Like EVERY SINGLE OTHER WITNESS IN THE PHOENIX
WRIGHT GAMES. Always one more thing. 

 - What I Saw, Part 2 - 

 - I suppose it's possible you can't see a seated preson from the restroom

 - However, that doesn't mean that the Detective was sitting there when I

 - Anyway! I forgot to testify earlier about probably the most important

 - As I was leaving the restroom, I heard a loud "BANG!" of a gunshot!

Well, that is certainly some interesting testimony. Franziska is certainly
going to leave a scar on the poor judge, oh well, that is his problem for
not testifying this stuff earlier. Well, there isn't much here, so press the
second statement for more information, the timing of the bang is going to be a
bit critical.

Now, he mentions that he heard the gunshot about 20 minutes before the recess
was over. But that is going to be an issue, isn't it?

 - Let's see ... I looked into that hallway about 20 minutes before we were
   to reconvene. 

Now, present Detective Badd's testimony. The problem is that Detective Badd
heard the gunshot just before the recess was over, but the Judge hear this
bang 20 minutes before it was over, leading a massive difference in terms
of what time the crime actually occurred. 

The Judge will not let you make an objection, but Edgeworth does not allow
the Judge not to let you make an objection, overruling the judge. How does 
that work? Anyway, he bits his tongue again, and Franziska begins her habit
of whipping the judge into submission. Now, what could have caused the bang
that the judge heard? Quite simply, it was the balloon that has turned into
evidence in your organiser. So present that.

Well, the Judge was tricked that a balloon popping was a gunshot. Yes, now
he knows that giving testimony is a difficult thing, after being deafened
by OBJECTION! all the time. Anyway, Edgeworth orders, and the Judge agrees,
that Gumshoe needs to be questioned a bit more. 

* Date - September 10        *
*                            *
* Location - District Court  *
*            Courtroom No. 3 *

In comes poor Gumshoe. Well, it looks like we have 3 judges for Gumshoe, poor
him. It is quite clear that Gumshoe isn't telling you something that he 
should, so basically, we need to squeeze the truth out of him, drop by
painful drop.

 - While I was on Duty - 

 - I came down here to this courthouse on Detective Badd's orders.

 - As soon as I got here, he ordered me to stand guard in front of Lobby 
   No. 2.

 - From that time on, until I heard the gunshot, I was in that hallway the
   whole time!

 - On my honor as a detective, I swear it wasn't me, pal!

Press the third statement, we need to know if he was in that hallway the 
entire time, he might be lying. Gumshoe then says that he didn't move a
single inch from the door of Defendent Room 2, so that is something we need
to question him about. Everyone gives the silent treatment, we all know he 
did move.

 - And until I heard the gunshot, I didn't take a single step away from the 
   Lobby No. 2 door.

Well, we have him now, he did move, and with that, he committed the heinous
crime of dirtying the hallway bench. With this, present the fingerprints that
he had left on the bench. Well, he recognises the Swiss roll at least. And
with that, Franziska doesn't seem very forgiving on him for dirtying the 
bench, not in the slightest. And he finally admits that he did move and go
to the vending machine to get those Swiss rolls.

Then, he claims that he has nothing to hide. Objection is expected from
Edgeworth. He is aware that the Swiss roll is $6, and with this little
relevation, he doesn't seem to be happy. With him only having $5, and the 
rolls costing $6, how could he afford it? Edgeworth has proof that he had
assistance in getting those rolls. 

With this need for evidence, present the Swiss roll that was dropped by
the mysterious girl. And now, he starts to get the feeling that we know all
about his secret. Then he lies and says that he ate both of them, and he
knows of no one. But suddenly, the mysterious girl attempts to kick 
Edgeworth again, and this time, he is a bit more alert. And finally, we get
the name of the girl, we all knew. It's Kay Faraday, albeit 7 years younger.

It appears that Kay's last kick left a nasty bruise on Edgeworth, poor him.
She calls Gumshoe Gummy, which is fitting. With that, Edgeworth needs to
talk to her a bit more. Say seems to be a bit aggressive at first, but 
present to her a Swiss roll, and she'll calm down a bit. Edgeworth attempts
to break the news to her about her father, but she already knows, from the
guards talking to loudly. No doubt their salaries will be cut. 

Then, the best scene happens, Edgeworth offers a handkerchief, and instead,
Kay uses his cravat, his lovely ruffles, as a tissue. Well, lucky he has
a spare. Now, we can question Kay a bit more. With talk about her father, 
you will get the Promise Notebook from her.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Promise Notebook
  -> Exchange diary between Mr. Faraday and Kay. Touch the Check Button for

Well, thanks to Franziska, she effectively makes the Judge a criminal instead
of a Hero of Justice. Poor man, one single piece of flawed testimony and he
gets punishment from her for life. Well, it does seem that Kay was in the
hallway earlier, which was probably the reason for Gumshoe's lying. That 
idiot. Well, that's all we're getting out of her, and Edgeworth does have a 
spare cravat, which he puts on within seconds. 

Well, Franziska still wants to know why he was lying. This is simple, it is
all in the Promise Notebook, Gumshoe tried to cover for Kay, that is why he
was lying the entire time. Franziska is annoyed, Scruffy being considerate?
What is the world coming to?

Well, we have proven Gumshoe could not have done the murder, but in comes 
Yew and she objects. Again. She says that you've just proved that Gumshoe is
the murderer, after all, no one else came in or out of the hallway between
him and the discovery of the murder. Well, Gumshoe is still in hot water, and
we need to dig him out of it. But this is far from over, we still have things
to inspect. 

                                                              To be Continued.

[5.05] Day One, Part 3 - Investigation, Part 1

* Date - September 10, 5:45 PM     *
*                                  *
* Location - District Court        *
*            Defendant Lobby No. 1 *

Well, in the other defendent lobby this time around. Well, in the room is 
Detective Badd and Kay. It seems that Kay and Badd know each other, well 
enough to be known as Uncle Badd. Well, after a little chat, talk to 
Detective Badd, who tells you that the overpowering smell in the room is the
perfume that Yew wears. With this, you get some evidence.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Ms. Yew's Perfume
  -> Perfume given to Badd by Yew. Same perfume as the one spilled in Lobby
     No. 1.

Talk to Badd about everything you can. Edgeworth points out the reasons why
Yew doesn't get along with Badd all that much, and he's surprised that you
know. Ask about the KG-8 incident, and he will tell you that Badd, Faraday and
Yew were all involved in the incident. Faraday and Badd were investigating a
smuggling ring, involving the Amano Group. 

Well, Cece was killed, and Colin Devorae was arrested for smuggling, but the
truth is, he didn't know anything, he was forced to confess basically. Badd
also admits that he wasn't vigilant enough so that the important evidence to
convict Manny Coachen was stolen. Faraday and Cece are both dead, and it must
weigh heavily on Badd, since it was his duty to protect them. But Badd himself
didn't escape unscathed, the holes in his jackets are there from the bullets
fired at him. Well, that's when they first met Yew.

Faraday and Badd, even after KG-8, continued to find the real criminal, but
still failed to find the real mastermind. In their hunt for the mastermind, 
Yew appeared again, as a defence lawyer, all for trying to find leads on the
KG-8 incident. Faraday and Badd, they are basically the same as Edgeworth and
Gumshoe. Edgeworth wants more to do with the Yatagarasu.

With this, Badd tells you the reason they never caught the Yatagarasu, the
three reasons the Yatagarasu is always ahead. They always know the exact
location of the target object. They always know how to disarm the security
system. And finally, they never leave behind a single shred of evidence. This
is extremely important later in the next case in establishing the identity of
the Yatagarasu. 

The evidence that the Yatagarasu obtained was normally sent to the media but
this time, it was sent to the police, and only a select few, including Badd 
and Faraday knew about it. It was sent because the card that the Yatagarasu
uses was sent along with it. The three-foot raven. With that, the bailiff 
walks in saying that the evidence transferral is finally ready. 

* Date - September 10        *
*                            *
* Location - District Court  *
*            Courtroom No. 3 *

Now, head to the Prosecutor's Bench and examine the evidence that you have
to play with. Well, you need to examine three things, the gun, the knife and
the organiser. The organiser will contain some interesting material and it
will be added to your organiser.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Mr. Faraday's Organizer
  -> Faraday wrote his strategy for winning in here. Touch the Check Button
     for details.

With the organiser in hand, you will get the Yatagarasu Key, this is important
for you. This will also be added to your organiser.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Yatagarasu's Key
  -> Photo of key the Yatagarasu sent. Unusual shape. Touch the Check Button
     for details.

What is now strange is that the organiser didn't mention that a knife was 
involved with the case. Where did the knife come from? It couldn't have been
carried by Rell, it's too hard to smuggle a weapon into a court of law. So
how did it get in the courthouse. Simple, it was sent in as the Yatagarasu's
Key. The colour and the craftsmanship of the knife and the key are too similar
for there not to be something. Also, at the crime scene, there is a knife, but
not a key. Strange.

That makes it that the Key and the Knife are both the safe object. Now, you
will need to examine the knife. At the base of the knife, there should be a 
little trigger there, that should turn it into the Yatagarasu Key. With this,
the evidence will be updated.

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Yatagarasu's Key
  -> Photo of the key the Yatagarasu sent. Turns into knife. Touch the Check
     Button for details.

Now, here is the thing, it is highly likely that Faraday didn't know that the
knife existed within the Key, it had to be someone who knew that the Key was
a knife that committed this murder. And this means that it will have to be 
the person who sent the key who is the murderer, the Yatagarasu themself. It
can't be Rell, because he didn't know about the White Card the Yatagarasu 
sends out. With this, the knife gets updated as well..

 - Evidence Updated - 

  -> Weapon used to kill Faraday. Has the secret ability to change into key
     the Yatagarasu sent.

Now finally, the folder, the last thing. This is basically a brief overview
of the case that Faraday was meant to be handling. However, it appears that
we are missing a piece of evidence, the tape that proves Mack Rell killed
Deid Mann is not among the evidence here. Where is it? Well, we need to go
back to the Defendent Lobby again. 

[5.06] Day One, Part 3 - Questioning, Part 1

* Date - September 10, 6:00 PM     *
*                                  *
* Location - District Court        *
*            Defendant Lobby No. 2 *

Well, back in the lobby, again, and Detective Badd is with someone. The music
plays, and we all know who it is, it's Agent Lang. Well, he seems to be 
working for Badd. Well, he's here on a study vacation, how fun. Now, talk
with Detective Badd once more.

Edgeworth will again ask abuot the time of the murder, and Badd refuses to
answer. How cooperative of him. Now, present the Yatagarasu's key to him,
that should interest him a bit. But what he doesn't know is that the Key
turns into a knife. That is interesting, if the lead detective on the 
case of the Yatagarasu didn't know it was a knife, who did? That means no one
in law enforcement knew about it. Ask him again about the time of the murder.

Time for the questioning of Detective Tyrell Badd.

 - Det. Badd's Movements - 

 - ... I was in Lobby. No 1... talking with Yew.

 - ... We were talking about ... some trivial things.

 - ... I heard the gunshot ... right before the trial was about to reconvene.

 - When we heard it, Yew and I immediately dashed out into the hallway 

 - I saw Gumshoe goofing around there ... and then we all ran in to Lobby No.

Now, there isn't much information that we have right now, so we need to press
him for some more information. Press the third statement, that he heard the
gunshot before the trial was about to start. He mentions that he didn't hear
anything out of the ordinary before the gunshot. Interesting. 

 - ... I didn't hear any other strange sounds ... until that gunshot ...

Now, that doesn't fit, because we know that a ballon was popped before the
gunshot was heard, so present the remains of the pink balloon at this little
statement. However, he rejects your claim simply because that the walls are 
very thick, no sound can get in or out, mainly due to the privacy that lawyers
and their clients require. So he couldn't have heard the balloon pop. 

However, that leads to a problem, how could Badd have heard the gunshot that
was not meant to be heard since the walls are so tough at keeping secrets, he
shouldn't have been able to do so. With this epiphany, Edgeworth gets some
last minute logic to solve this puzzle.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Dissipating the Smell
  -> A window in Lobby No, 1 was opened to allow the perfume Ms. Yew spilled
     to dissipate. 

 Very Loud Television
  -> Lobby No. 2's television. It looks like it was set to an incredibly
     high volume.

 Missing Evidence
  -> Where did the surveillance tape from Mr. Faraday's bag disappear off to?

Now, to connect the logic together. Connect the Lobby No. 2 Window with 
Dissipating the Smell. The reason why the gunshot could be heard was the the
windows were open, in both rooms, so the soundproofing wouldn't have worked,
allowing a loud noise to travel from one room to the other. This leads to some
new logic.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Open Windows
  -> The Criminal couldn't have made it through, but what about incorporeal

Now, connect the Open Windows with the loud television. If smell can go in and
out of windows, so can sound obviously. Because the windows in both rooms were
open, the sound could be heard quite easily. So the whole gunshot could have
easily have been staged.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Gunshot Could be Heard
  -> Windows were open, so the gunshot could be heard, but where did it 
     originate from?

Now, join the last two pieces of logic together. The missing evidence is the
video, featuring of all things, a gunshot. It disappeared between the recess
where Faraday was accused, and the Evidence Transferral, so it should be
still in the room. So, the whole thing was staged!

[5.07] Day One, Part 3 - Investigation, Part 2

We now know where to look at the crime scene, if it all goes as to what our
logic dictates, we can solve this murder. 


 Defendent Lobby No. 2

Well, all we need to do is to investigate the television. Investigate the 
VCR at the bottom of the TV stand. Edgeworth plays what is inside the video
player, and look what it is, it is the piece of evidence that was missing
the entire time. We have now found what created that crucial gunshot. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Surveillance Video
  -> Video of the Embassy staff member's murder. Gunshot is especially 

That is the trick behind the double murder, the surveillance video. Now
we need to point out how they could have heard the gunshot and what was used
to make the gunshot. This is quite clearcut, use the open window as the piece
of contradictory evidence and use the Surveillance video. That should be 

What is clear that Badd, Gumshoe and Yew all heard a gunshot, but it didn't
have to have come from a gun. Now, why was the window open, mainly because
the criminal wanted people to hear it. So why was that done? To manipulate
the time in which the actual murders took place. So select that as your 
option. This was done to fabricate the timing of the murder.

By using the gunshot in the video, it explains what the gunshot actually
was, and why it was left running in the video player. Therefore, the murders
took place at an earlier time than everyone was led to believe. Because of
this, it would have to have been between the recess start and before Gumshoe's
arrival as guard. So the real murderer is someone who knows about the key, 
as well as someone who doesn't have an alibi for that time period.

And that completes the investigation. Now, Yew will ask for you in the
Courtroom, how fitting, this will all end there. 

                                                              To be Continued.

[5.08] Day One, Part 3 - Questioning, Part 2

* Date - September 10, 6:15 PM *
*                              *
* Location - District Court    *
*            Courtroom No. 3   *

Now, after everyone takes their positions, Edgeworth as the Prosecutor and
Yew as the Defence Attorney, we can get started on the endgame. She thinks
that she already has the case wrapped up, but Edgeworth seems to have other
things in mind.

 - Ms. Yew's Argument - 

 - Everyone, sans the suspect, has an alibi for when the gun went off.

 - Furthermore, the areas around the crime scene have all been thoroughly 
   investigated, right?

 - I also confirmed that there is no possible escape route from Lobby No. 2.

 - Which leaves us with one unshakable conclusion, that Detective Gumshoe is 
   the killer.

Now, we need to draw out as much information as possible, and to do so, you
will need to press all 4 of her statements. Press her and she will give off
nothing, she has nothing else left up her sleeve, and with that, we can
bring out our little masterpiece. She still says it was Gumshoe.

Now, what happens if it wasn't Gumshoe who committed the murders, and they
took place before he arrived on guard duty? Then we have a slight problem
with her logic. How could it have been fabricated, simple. Present the
Surveillance Tape right here. With this, the murderer took the tape out of
Faraday's bag, and used that as a trap. That is why they escaped. So that
leaves 30 minutes before the gunshot was heard as the real time the criminal
committed the murders. 

Yew will get annoyed, the rooms are soundproof, but we have already got 
that one covered, haven't we? The window was open, therefore, sound could
get in and out. Ha, and Yew's objection pales in comparsion with the boom
that is Edgeworth's Objection. Edgeworth will point out that the guilty
party in this case opened the window in both lobby rooms. And in Lobby Room
1, that could either be Calisto Yew or Tyrell Badd. And I really doubt it
was bad, so who is the guilty party? Damn straight, Calisto Yew. 

Now, she is going to be pissed off, you've just accused her of murder, and
no one likes being accused of murder. Now, time to argue back.

 - Ms. Yew's Rebuttal - 

 - You argue that the window was opened, however, do you have proof it was
   I who did that?

 - Furthermore, do you have proof that the tape was used in committing
   the crime?

 - Frankly, I'm shocked at you for going around accusing people of murder like

 - Especially with logic as full of holes as yours!

Ha, do we have any proof, know we all know she did it, she's asking for 
proof. Real innocent people do that, they plead their innocence. Now, to 
smash her against the wall, present her perfume bottle at her first statement,
she used that to give an excuse to open the window, the stench of her perfume
made Lobby 1's window open. 

So, the reason she spilled the perfume in the room? Simple, with that, 
Detective Badd will be with her the entire time, and that creates her alibi
for the moment the gunshot went off, and shifting the blame to Gumshoe. Now,
she mentions that she couldn't have killed Faraday. Now, she goes for the 
final argument.

 - Why It Couldn't Be Me - 

 - Accusing someone of murder over a spilled bottle of perfume is a bit over
   the top.

 - But I suppose forgery of evidence is to be expected of a disciple of Von

 - In any case, it simply could not have been me who killed Mr. Faraday.

 - After all, I don't even know where the knife that was used to kill him came

Now, there isn't much information there, so we need to press her even more. 
With this, you will need to press the last statement, she didn't know where the
knife came from? Is that the truth? Well, she says that there was no knife
inside the evidence bag. Edgeworth tries to bluff her that there is, and she
mentions that there was only a key that was to be presented, not a knife. Ah, 
what did she just say? I think we have trapped her.

 - There was a key in his evidence bag, but you can't kill anyone with a
   simple key!

Really now, can't kill someone with a key? Present the Yatagarasu Key right
now. Edgeworth points out that the key inside the bag could transform into
the knife that was used in the murder. And he points out that Yew knew that
there was a key inside Faraday's evidence bag. Now, with that knowledge, she
could have killed him. Again, she objects. With this, Edgeworth shows her
the magic trick to effectively shut her up. 

Why would it be her instead of Gumshoe? Simple, I mentioned earlier that 
no one in Law Enforcement knew about the key's secret, Gumshoe is a member of
Law Enforcement, but Yew isn't. Now, Yew tries to escape that it was Faraday
that told her that the knife had a trick to it, but that isn't possible. Law
Enforcement simply didn't know. If Badd didn't know, Faraday wouldn't have 

So, how did Yew know about the nature of the knife? It is because she is the
Yatagarasu in this case, so present that profile now as evidence that she
knew. Well, she knows she has been caught now. And then she tells you, Calisto
Yew isn't her real name. She claims that she is the Yatagarasu. Faraday had
discovered her true identity, so she simply killed him. Rell was told to 
accuse Faraday of being the Yatagarasu for an acquittal. But with recess, 
Faraday dragged off Rell.

So, under the threat of Rell telling everything to Faraday, she killed both
of them to silence them completely. She knew that Faraday would use the key,
so she killed him with that. With that, she walked into the room, asked to
talk to Faraday, and he gave her the key, the murder weapon. She killed him
instantly with it. With that, she had to kill Rell because he was a witness
in a murder. 

After that was done, she used the Surveillance Tape instead of a gun, purely
because the risk of getting caught was too high. She had Rell set up the 
crime scene, and then killed him. And then she reveals the next thing, she
was the person who ordered the hit on Deid Mann. She got Rell to kill him. 
And then she drops it, she is a member of the smuggling ring, the reason she
killed Faraday and Rell, and reason for the hit on Deid Mann, who was about
to testify against the ring. 

And with that, she pulls out a gun. Edgeworth handed back the Yatagarasu
Key without a second thought, and she is going to escape with it. And all
in this instance, Edgeworth freezes before Kay saves him somewhat. Badd 
runs after her, but I wonder why he didn't shoot her. And in comes the

* Date - September 10, 7:00 PM *
*                              *
* Location - District Court    *
*            Courtroom No. 3   *

Well, the gunshot was aimed at Badd, and that lead to another hole in his
already tattered jacket. With a little talk, Badd swears that he will catch
Yew again, or whatever her real name is. Gumshoe is now glad that he isn't
accused of murder anymore. But the Judge is still sad, saying that he caused
so much trouble. With that, Kay left a present for Gumshoe, and you are to
present it. Present the Swiss Roll. 

With that, Gumshoe swears that he will stick right by Edgeworth. And that's
where the famous partnership starts. Much to his dismay. Apparently, words
failed to describe the immeasurable suffering Gumshoe put Edgeworth through,
oh well. 

With that, we are back at the amusement park. She mentions that she has 
recently gone through her father's bookshelves. Edgeworth says that she isn't
the real Yatagarasu, but Yew was. She says that the real Yatagarasu was indeed
Byrne Faraday. The proof, a secret diary that he kept that Kay found. 

And furthermore, she has proof, the Little Thief device, the device the 
Yatagarasu used to disarm any security system. And since she has possession of
it, perhaps Byrne Faraday was the real Yatagarasu after all. 

Well, we have a case to deal with now, who is the real Yatagarasu? Edgeworth
agrees to help Kay out in catching the Calisto Yew, the enigma behind that
lady. It's time to settle things, once and for all. With the next case, all
things will be solved. The real identity of the Yatagarasu will be known.

                                                                       THE END

[6.01] Day One - Investigation, Part 1

Well, we start off with Edgeworth talking, talking about the split of a 
country being split into two. The relevance will be made known later in this
case. The appearance of the Yatagarasu, a building on fire. What is going on?

* Date - March 14, 10:17 AM            *
*                                      *
* Location - High Prosecutor's Offices *
*            Room 1202                 *

Edgeworth is sitting there, drinking tea, recapping the last few cases and
what has happened. This is important, because this case will wrap everything
up into a nice little bundle. Remember, this takes place after the first
case. Kay rocks up, and shows an article that the Yatagarasu has threatened
to steal the secrets from an embassy. The chance has arisen to finally catch
the killer of 7 years past, Calisto Yew, or whatever her name is. 

* Date - March 14, 5:00 PM      *
*                               *
* Location - Theatrum Neutralis *

Anyway, out of a stage production they go, and Edgeworth has to be a fan
of the Steel Samurai, he can try to hide it, but he is definitely a fan. 
The stage is held in a theatre, in the middle of the Allebahst and the
Babahl embassies. Why are these two embassies right next to each other? 
Because they were split when Cohdopia was split up. Remember that name? It
is going to be vital in this case. Both the KG-8 and the second KG-8 
incidents were related to Cohdopia. And this is the embassy the Yatagarasu
calling card as sent to. 

Now, to have a look around. The table to your left is going to give you
the embassy guide, and an overview of the embassy.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Embassy Guide
  -> Two countries share this building with borders. Touch the Check Button
     for details. 

Once you have done that, you will see the Steel Samurai, in all his glory.
Anyway, talk to the Steel Samurai, and Edgeworth, umm, glares at him? Well,
he gives Edgeworth an autograph and that is added to evidence.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Steel Samurai's Autograph
  -> Autograph with a sketch of his face and weapon. Touch the Check Button
     for details.

Well, off he goes. And with that, Kay gets all excited over the Jammin Ninja,
and this is a reference to the final case in Justice for All. And note that
in the right corner of the room, there is a photographer, Lotta Hart, back
from the previous games. Anyway, it's time for the Jammin Ninja. After the 
show, Edgeworth thinks about going home, but then, there is a problem, the
Yatagarasu has been spotted in Allebahst. Well, Kay tries to go into the 
embassy, and is denied, so she runs into Babahl, where she is granted a 
welcome. Edgeworth follows.

* Date - March 14, 6:12 PM  *
*                           *
* Location - Open-Air Stage *

Edgeworth needs to be more athletic. Well, it turns out that there is a fire,
and appears that the Yatagarasu went into Babahl as well. Well, at least 
we know what went on fire.

* Date - March 14, 6:45 PM        *
*                                 *
* Location - Babahlese Embassy    *
*            Secretariat's Office *

Well, what a scene, and Edgeworth is out of breath again. It appears that
there is a dead body, and Kay is under arrest by Shih-na because she 
apparently chased a suspicious person into the embassy, and Edgeworth 
demands to see some proof. However, Edgeworth is only a prosecutor, and 
this is foreign soil. Therefore, Edgeworth doesn't have the usual 
investigative powers that he normally does. But there is someone who does
have that power, and in she comes.

Franziska von Karma walks in, and she is given the power to investigate
by Ambassador Palaeno. Edgeworth circumvents the inability to investigate
by becoming Franziska's assistant? She doesn't mind, since that makes him
her subordinate. Now, time to start the actual investigation


 Babahlese Embassy
 Secretariat's Office

It turns out Gumshoe was here on guard duty, and Edgeworth threatens to cut
his salary, but poor Gumshoe points out that if it gets cut once more, he
can't even afford instant noodles. Poor guy. First things first, lets have a
look at the dead body, the secretariat. His name, Manny Coachen. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Notes on Coachen's Body
  -> COD: single stab to base of neck. The body wasn't badly burnt by the

COD means cause of death. Now, there are two things you want to have a look
at, first, the thing that is sticking out of his pocket, which turns out to
be the Yatagarasu Key. The second, is the dagger, which appears to be the 
murder weapon. Now, with the Key, show Gumshoe the little secret, which is
the knife at the base of the key. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Yatagarasu Key
  -> The Yatagarasu stole this from this embassy 7 years ago. It is also a 

  -> Covered in victim's blood, the blade matches the wound. Butterfly motif
     is noteworthy.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Motif on Knife Handle
  -> A butterfly-shaped guard adorns the handle of the murder weapon. 

Now, the next thing is to have a look at the statue, the golden one that
looks like the Steel Samurai. This is the Primidux Statue. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Babahl's Primidux Statue
  -> Both countries claim to own real one. Nat. treasure. Only Amb. and 
     Secret. can touch. 

Next, investigate the knives on the wall, below that little jacket. And this
will give you some information, that the handle on the knives can be changed
quite easily. This will be important later. Next, examine the butterfly motif
on the back wall. 

 - New Logic Received - 

 Buttlerfly of Babahl
  -> National symbol that adorns the national flag. Allebahst's flower is its

Next, investigate the safe. This is Coachen's office, so naturally, this will
be his safe. However, we can't open it without the key.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Locked Safe
  -> The Secretariat's office safe. It can't be opened without the key. 

Now, with this, you can talk to the Ambassador. This guy really is a character
as well. Great. It seems like he likes offering tickets to travel to Babahl,
I swear, this guy is a good tourism spokesperson. Talk to Palaeno, and he will
tell you what Coachen was doing in the embassy, basically, running the whole
joint. It seems that Coachen was in charge of printing, and the Abmassador
mentions where Coachen was from before, the KG-8 incident. 

Now, talk about the other subjects. When Edgeworth talks about the Yatagarasu
key, the Ambassador points out that it was probably from Cohdopia, since it 
has both the butterfly and flower motif. Yet he doesn't know about the knife.
This gives you a bit of information

 - New Logic Received - 

 Key used at Embassy
  -> This key was stolen from the Cohdopian Embassy 7 years ago by the 

Now, you need to start joining up the logic. The obvious is to link the Motif
on Knife Handle with the Butterfly of Babahl. Perhaps the knife itself was
found in this room. Now, join the last two pieces of logic together. This 
joining leads Edgeworth to think that the key opens the safe to this office.
Why else would Coachen have the key? Now, to try it out.

It is opened, but there is nothing. But something isn't right, perhaps it is
the piece of paper hanging out from the back of the thing. It seems stuck, 
so something isn't right. Therefore, it seems that the safe has two 
compartments to it. 

Now, to deduce how the second compartment works. Point to the keyhole that is 
on the safe's wall, to the left. It looks a little odd, so deduce that and
present the Yatagarasu Key. Well, the key opened the first lock, but how does
that help with the second. At a top down angle, examine the tip of the blade,
and it will indeed look like it could fit that hole. So that solves that
mystery, the knife wasn't always a knife, it was also a key. 

We open the safe to find, well, treasure. They are stolen pieces of art. But
that isn't what is important. What we want are the papers. But it is of no
use to you yet. So talk to Franziska.

She will keep telling you that you are her subordinate, but what is she doing

 - New Logic Received - 

 Franziska's Return
  -> Why is she here when she is supposed to be overseas in pursuit of a 
     smuggling ring?

She will tell you that she was here in Allebahst, because something went
on, and that is where Agent Lang is. Gumshoe will butt in on the topic of
the Yatagarasu, which gives you a little more information to play with.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Stealing of Secret
  -> The card warned that the Yatagarasu will steal the embassy's 
     "dirtiest secret."

Now, finally, connect those pieces of logic together. With this, you
will need to ask Franziska more about this smuggling operation, because it
seems that the dirty little secret is inside this room. Talk to her again.

She gives you a sheet of paper, which is an accounting document. The paper
is from the times of Cohdopia, so that the culprit will have to have come 
from one of those two nations. This page seems awfully familar. It will be
added to your organiser.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Cohdopian Paper Document
  -> Accounting doc related to smuggling. Proof someone in 1 of the countries
     is ringleader.

Now, examine the safe again and look at the papers. Deduce and select the 
papers, with the Cohdopian Paper Document as evidence. It makes it clear
that you now have the set of papers. It makes it clear that Coachen was
smuggling a massive amount of Babahlese ink, and it was done because it is a
special commodity, and only a certain amount is exported. And with all this
information, you have complete the investigation. 

Now, Shih-na will attempt to take Kay away for the murder of Manny Coachen. 
But Edgerworth will intervene, and now we need to take on Shih-na and prove
that Kay isn't the murderer. 

[6.02] Day One - Questioning, Part 1

Time to make battle with Lang's second in command.

 - Why Arrest Kay? - 

 - Even your police confirmed that the Yatagarasu infiltrated the Babahlese
   Embassy tonight.

 - Utilizing the confusion caused by the fire, the Yatagarasu snuck into
   this embassy.

 - Furthermore, this girl claims to be the Yatagarasu.

 - And most important, other than her, there was no one else in here with the

Now, this doesn't give you much information, so press the third statement. 
Just because Kay claims to be the Yatagarasu, doesn't make her the real 
criminal in this case. With this, she will make a wild claim, and this is 
going to be your ticket.

 - She wanted to steal documents regarding smuggling, so she killed Mr.
   Coachen for the key.

Now, we have a problem. If Kay was the murderer and wanted to steal the
documents, why are the documents still there? Therefore, present the 
Yatagarasu Key as evidence that she is wrong. Because the fact that the papers
were still in the safe, it proves that it was not the real motive behind this

Shih-na will say that perhaps she didn't know about the key, but if that is
the case, why killed Coachen if she hadn't known about it? Now, Shih-na says
that it is mere conjecture, but Edgeworth says that she didn't have proof.
But it seems that she does.

 - Definitive Evidence - 

 - The knife wound on the body is consistent with the blade of the knife.

 - The knife with the butterfly handle is the murder weapon, which the killer
   was holding.

 - I assume she obtained the knife from the display rack and used it on the

 - The knife is part of a special 3-piece set, which has a design like no 

 - The evidence and testimony, it all points to the girl. There is no 

No counterargument? Well, she is wrong. Kay will keep talking about the
suspicious person, but where could that person have gone to? Well, we need
to use some proof. Now, there is something wrong with her second statement,
that the Bahahlese Knife is indeed the murder weapon. The problem is the
knife itself. There is blood on the blade, but there is no blood on the
handle, which is strange. 

This means, a different handle was used in lieu of the one that is currently
attached to the knife. Now, examine the centre of the knife, really, you
just need to press the Examine button when it turns up. It will seperate
the knife and blade.

Why was this done? To create the illusion that Coachen was killed by this
exact knife. This will also give you a new piece of evidence.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Babahlese Knife Handle
  -> Swapped with the real murder weapon's handle, its blade has yet to be

Now, Shih-na will claim that Kay could have switched the handles. Now, 
Edgeworth will prove that Kay isn't the killer, once and for all. With this,
you will get the blade. Now, what is interesting is the little engraving
below the blood stains, it is a mark. A mark of a flower. And that means
it is a blade, belonging to Allebahst, not from Babahl. So present the 
Embassy Guide at this point. 

Now, this is proving Kay's innocence. The blade is from Allebahst, and Kay
didn't enter Allebahst. And the murder didn't take place till AFTER the
fire, and no one came in and out during the fire, so Kay couldn't have
transported the Allebahstian blade either way. So Kay can't be the killer.

But this raises new problems. Who is the killer? Why is an Allebahstian
blade here in Babahl? We still have plenty to investigate. But Shih-na 
again interrupts saying that the explaination isn't airtight. She points
out that Kay can't have been the killer, but she could be the Yatagarasu
that they are after. Shih-na claims that the evidence is because Kay keeps
saying that she is the Yatagarasu. Well, now we need to investigate, the
Allebahst embassy. And like that, they all walk out.

                                                              To be Continued.

[6.03] Day One, Part 2 - Investigation, Part 1

* Date - March 14, 7:44 PM      *
*                               *
* Location - Theatrum Neutralis *
*            Lobby              *

Well, into the lobby we go and see Lang. With his army of investigators. This
is the best part ever. Lang calls out the second #1 from the right and gives
him a birthday present. The chief tells Lang that he is such a kind man, but
the poor guy says it isn't his birthday. Turns out, the present was for his
younger brother's wife's younger brother. Okay... 

Well, now to talk to Lang. He doesn't want to give you permission to have a
look around Allebahst, and for good reason. There has been an incident, and
by that, we mean, MURDER. The Ambassador of Allebahst, Alba, walks out to
see wants the problem, and he states that power rests with Lang. Then, 
Ambassador Palaeno, who asks that you be given permission to solve who killed
Coachen. Well, Lang lets in von Karma and Edgeworth, but Gumshoe has to watch
over Kay. But before you go into Allebahst, you need to talk to Franziska and
Ambassador Palaeno.

Talk to Franziska, and she will tell you that she got most of the information
by tracking the smuggling of Babahlese ink. The reason they are being 
smuggled is that there is a lot of counterfeit bills circulating in Zheng Fa
and the ink used is Babahlese ink. And that is where Coachen comes in, he
was smuggling a lot of the ink. And seeing that he was in charge of the 
printing press, it is not hard to see why Coachen is involved. Now, the 
problem for Franziska is that she has no evidence of the counterfeit bills,
nor does she have the counterfeit plates to print the bills. That is why she
is going to the Allebahstian embassy. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Counterfeit Bills
  -> Made with Babahlese ink, they are in circulation in Zheng Da. It's hard 
     to tell they're fake.

Now, talk to Ambassador Palaeno. He will offer you some Babahlese ink, and
Edgeworth will accept this gift.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Babahlese Ink
  -> Special whitcrystal oil-based ink. Limited export because of its use in

Now, it's time to go into Allebahst, and Kay will interrupt, and she will
mention that she will go with Gumshoe to investigate Babahl a little bit 
more. Time to enter Allebahst, at last.

* Date - March 14, 8:17 PM        *
*                                 *
* Location - Allebahstian Embassy *
*            Ambassador's Office  *

And right when Edgeworth enters, he is smashed into by the Steel Samurai. 
And under the mask, well, it is someone who makes Edgeworth rattled by the
look on his face. It's Larry Butz. It turns out that he is in a bit of 
trouble. He is the suspect in a murder. And he is the Steel Samurai, much
to Edgeworth's dismay. Lang finally interrupts this awkward situation.

Turns out, Larry is the main suspect in the murder of Mask DeMasque II. And
we have a good look at the dead body. And we need to prove Larry innocent, 
but it would probably be easier if he was locked up, he is more trouble than
he is worth. Edgeworth will want to have a look at who the victim is, and Lang
will deny him. Until a familar badass walks in.

In comes Detective Tyrell Badd, who demands to see the file, and gets it. 
Turns out Badd is still on the case of the Yatagarasu. Turns out that Badd 
isn't as spiteful as Lang, if Edgeworth can solve the case, then by all 
means, the information should go to him. Talk with Badd. 

Turns out Lang and Badd were on guard duty, and when the chaos broke out,
Mask DeMasque II broke in. He was here to steal something, and then died in
an attack. Turns out, Ambassador Alba was here to give a speech, and well,
the Yatagarasu turned up. The Steel Samurai was meant to be at the speech,
but he didn't show. At the time he was meant to be in one room, he was 
seen in another room, which he wasn't meant to be in. Turns out, he was on
the roof. Time to start investgating


 Allebahstian Embassy
 Ambassador's Office

Well, lets have a look at the dead body, the victim, DeMasque II. Well, thre
are 4 things that you will need to examine, you want to examine the body 
and the mask. The next two things will give out evidence, the sword that looks
like the murder weapon, and the note that is in his hand. Examine those 4
things to finish this little bit off. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 DeMasque II's Note
  -> Request for the theft of the Primidux Statue with a map to where the 
     statue is. 

 Samurai Sword
  -> Weapon that's used on stage. Is thought to be what killed DeMasque II.

Now, examine the table next to the fireplace, and you will get a photo. It
doesn't seem useful at this moment, but it gets added into your organiser as

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Photo with Steel Samurai
  -> Taken in front of Allebahst's Statue before murder. Touch the Check 
     Button for details.

Now, examine the windowsill of the room, this will get you some evidence,
and again, it doesn't appear to be quite useful, but it is something that you
will need later on.

 - New Evidence Received - 

  -> Two large flowers in bloom. The vines are supported by stakes and are 
     still growing.

Now, the final thing to examine, the knife rack. Go examine it, and it turns
out that the handles and blades match each other, so it is very possible that
the blade for the murder came from this room. Now, time to do some deducing
that there is evidence out of place.

The problem here is the samurai spear. Does it look a little bit bent to you?
That's because it is, so deduce that, and your evidence for it not being 
that way is the Steel Samurai's Autograph. Turns out that the idiot broke the
spear, well, smashed it into a wall and bent it into it's current state. 
For some reason, Edgeworth thought the thing was real, and Larry finds this 
cute, but anyway, it gets added to your organiser.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Samurai Spear
  -> Weapon that's used on stage. Larry hit it against a wall and bent it. 
     It's hollow. 

Now, the next thing that we need to do is to look at the Primidux Statue in
detail. You will get that added into your evidence.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Allebahst's Primidux Statue
  -> Both countries claim to own real one. Nat. treasure. Only Amb. and 
     Secret. can touch. 

Notice the deduce button? Now, the problem lies in your organiser. Look
at the Steel Samurai photo, and you will see that the position of the statue
looks changed. That's because it is. So highlight the statue and use the
photograph as evidence of a contradiction. 

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Allebahst's Primidux Statue
  -> Both countries claim ot own real one. Nat. treasure. Signs it was moved
     during murder. 

Now, you have investigated basically all that needs to be investigated, so
you will need to talk to two people. First, lets start with Larry. Talk with
him, and well, Larry is still the same old Larry. Edgeworth will insult him
saying that he lacks the mental prowess to plan a murder. Turns out that the
idiot was on the roof, trying to be Santa. Well great. But he does tell you
that when he was up there, there was smoke coming out of the chimney.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Smoke from Chimney
  -> Smoke was pouring out of the chimney when Larry thought to climb down

That's about all we are going to get from him, and now, onto the Pink
Princess. This is going to be awesome. The face Edgeworth makes when he 
finds out who is inside that suit. She thinks that Edgeworth was trying 
to avoid her. Turns out she's right, he was. Not very successful at it 
though. Anyway, talk to the old lady and she will give you two pieces of
evidence, and some logic. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Stand-In Request
  -> Request for Ms. Oldbag to stand in for Mindy, the Pink Princess actress
     who fell ill.

 Letter from a Stalker
  -> For Ms. Oldbag. Has mistakes from bad penmanship. Touch the Check Button
     for details.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Used the Fireplace
  -> At the time of the crime, Ms. Oldbag was warming her hip in the room next

Now, we can do nothing but join the two pieces of logic together. But in comes
the police dog, and it is a familar face, it is the dog Missile. It's a dog 
that was trained by Gumshoe... Yeah, oh dear. Anyway, sent to find clues, it
finds one pretty quick, a samurai dog, which it eats. He also finds a lady's
undershirt. What's that doing there?

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Lady's Undershirt
  -> Found in office fireplace. There's only 1 person here who would own such
     a shirt. 

Well, as you can guess, it will belong to Oldbag, so present it to her. Well,
she goes all worked up over it, and quite frankly, no one really cares about
it, but we get a piece of logic. Anyway, she gives you a box of Samurai Dogs
when you talk to her some more.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Samurai Dogs
  -> Present for embassy staff. Ms. Oldbag took and ate a few from the 
     dressing room. 

 - New Logic Received - 

 Undershirt from Next Door
  -> The undershirt was found in the office fireplace, but how did it get 

Now, connect the two chimney pieces of logic together. Basically, given the
evidence at hand, it means that the fireplaces, one in each room will be
sharing the same chimney. 

 - New Logic Received - 

 Shared Chimney
  -> The office fireplace and the one in Ms. Oldbag's room share the same

Now, add the final two pieces of logic together to complete this little
investigation. If the undershirt got from one room to the next, then it is
possible that there is a connecting passage between the two. Upon closer
inspection, it turns out that there is. This gives us another piece of
logic to play with.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Connected Fireplaces
  -> Ambassador Alba's office fireplace is connected to the neighbouring
     roomm's fireplace. 

Well, how committed the murder? That problem is still yet to be solved. And
that completes the investigation. Time to answer the remaining questions 
at hand. 

[6.04] Day One, Part 2 - Questioning, Part 1

Well, Lang is confident that he can best you in the argument at hand, so it's
time to prove Larry is innocent. But before we can do that, we need to know
what really happened with Larry, that lying annoying troublemaker.

 - Up on the Rooftop - 

 - After the show, I left the pushcart in the Rose Garden, and came into the

 - Then, they took a picture of me shaking hands with the ambassador.

 - After that and until my next appearance, I had some free time, so I 
   wandered around.

 - That's when I spotted the chimney. A chimney like that is a rare thing,
   you thing. 

 - So then, I wanted to play Santa and decided to give it a try. 

Well, there isn't much information to go on right now, so we will need to 
press him for more information. Press the last statement. After a little
speech, raise an objection. So, it means that Larry was delivering something
or another down the chimney. So what was he delivering? And who to? The
person will be Oldbag, the Ex-Security Lady.

He was dropping down, but for what reason? He definitely didn't want to see
Oldbag there, so what piece of evidence proves it? The Stand In Request. He
was delivering something to Mindy, the girl he is after, and since she was
sick, he was unaware. Anyway, Larry proposes that you will lose to him in a
battle of wits, although Edgeworth observes that if he loses, Larry winds up
in prison.

 - Larry's Assertion - 

 - So you think that all I wanted to do was to go visit Mindy?

 - Well, I dressed up as Santa and climbed up to the chimney, but the smoke 
   was really thick. 

 - It was a case of mistaken identity, and that mistake made me late for the

 - Then, to top it all off, I beame a suspect in a murder. THAT'S what you 
   really meant.

 - But why would I ever put myself through so much humiliation on purpose?

This is simple, why would the go to the trouble of all this? This is so 
simple, present the Letter from a Stalker at the last statement. Now, what
part of the letter proves that he was going to visit Mindy? Easy, the name
on the letter. The handwriting is poor, but Wendy is actually meant to 
read Mindy. 

Still, the idiot denies it was him, so we need to nail the coffin. Someone
is setting him up he says, so present the Steel Samurai autograph here, as
proof that it was his crappy handwriting, nothing else. So we have proved
that this moron isn't the murderer, he doesn't have the brain capacity to,
and that's something. 

However, you aren't done yet, you've just gotten the confession from the
King of Troublemakers, but you still need to face Lang. 

 - Why Larry? - 

 - I was the one who found the body of the victim, DeMasque II.

 - Beside him was the Samurai Sword .. glittering red, and offering up 
   the scent of blood.

 - It was supposed to be in the Steel Samurai's dressing room, but I found 
   it here instead.

 - Plus, I found the murder weapon's owner, the suspect, Larry Butz in here,

Well, there isn't a contradiction here, so press the second statement for
some more information. Lang will suggest that the sword was used to beat up
his victim, and that will create a new statement.

 - I suspect he beat the victim to death with that thing.

Now, we have a problem. If he wanted to beat someone up, why wouldn't he 
use the spear. So present the Samurai Spear at this point. And another thing,
all the weapons are hollow. The spear proves that. And since it is hollow, it
is quite hard to beat someone to death with it. And seeing that the sword has
no signs of impact on it, it is unlikely that it was used to beat someone to
death with. Larry will also mention that one of his moves was canned because
he bent the spear. Great.

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Samurai Spear 
  -> Because he bent it, Larry couldn't do the "Early Summer Rain Jab!" 
     special attack.

Anyway, Edgeworth and Franziska will have an argument over what it means to
be a prosecutor, and then Lang will interrupt. We have the final bout on
our hands.

 - Why Larry? Part 2 - 

 - It's possible to use the Samurai Sword to kill someone.

 - And under these circumstances, it's the only logical conclusion.

 - We searched the Embassy, top to bottom, but the victim's blood is only
   on that weapon.

 - So isn't it only natural that suspicion would fall onto the owner of
   said weapon?

Well, that is true, no weapon has turned up, YET. So we need to press for
some more information. Press the third statement. Raise an objection when
you have the chance to. Lang will say that they searched everywhere, but
Edgeworth will mention that there are places that even they can't search.
Or touch for that matter. 

So what could the men not touch that could be the murder weapon? Present
the Allebahst Primidux Statue at this point. Seeing that is was moved during
the murder, it is quite likely it is the murder weapon. Lang orders his man
to ask Ambassador Alba for permission, but he will decline. 

Lang will examine the statue anyway, but Edgeworth will say that he should
do it, and use a Luminol test. And what do you know, it turns out that
there is a bit of blood on the head of the statue. Now, to examine the 
statue in some more detail. 

What you want to do is to examine the base of the statue, where there is a
handprint there. We find out who they belong to, and it turns out, it 
belongs to Manny Coachen. What on earth is going on? Edgeworth concludes 
that this Primidux statue actually belongs to Babahl, seeing that Coachen's
prints are on it. And given that Larry didn't go to Babahl, he is set 

                                                              To be continued.

[6.05] Day One, Part 2 - Investigation, Part 2

* Date - March 14, 9:21 PM  *
*                           *
* Location - Open-Air Stage *

In this stage area, Kay, Gumshoe and Ambassador Palaeno will be here, and 
it is time to see what they know. But Edgeworth will clear out some of the
unwanted evidence first. First things first, talk to Gumshoe and Ambassador
Palaeno, to learn more about the Babahl investigation and for some more

Gumshoe will give you a nice piece of evidence, the Silhouette Lantern, 
that will be needed later.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Silhouette Lantern
  -> Runs on whitcrystal oil, which burns green. It's a Babahlese souvenir. 

Now, talk to Ambassador Palaeno. After talking to him, present the Allebahst
Primidux Statue to him. Palaeno will tell you that he has already inspected
the Babahl statue, and it belongs to Allebahst, and he knows, because that
is the real one. Well, that is all we can do for now. 

Edgeworth will bring everyone up to speed, and it will lead to a talk on the
Yatagarasu. Edgeworth will note that the Yatagarasu appeared in the Rose
Garden, so that would be a good place to investigate first. Kay will then
give of two pieces of evidence, that you will need later. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

  -> Found at the Open-Air Stage, it looks like a guitar pick. It's also wet 
     for some reason.

 Ms. Yew's Perfume
  -> This was left behind by Calisto Yew 7 years ago. Kay has been safe-
     guarding it.

Now, head through the Lobby and into the Rose Garden. 

* Date - March 14, 9:21 PM *
*                          *
* Location - Rose Garden   *

Well, Edgeworth will say that this area needs to be investigated to find the
real cause of the Yatagarasu, so lets start.


 Rose Garden

First thing is to investigate the pool. This will be noted that it was used
to put out the fire and the fountain spouts are set to stay on until the water
reaches a certain level, in which it turns off. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Fountain Spouts
  -> Part of the Rose Garden pool. Auto-refills the water when the water level
     is too low.

And out of the water comes the Butz. He is looking for the Iron Infant, and 
off he goes into the water again to find him. Seriously, that guy just can't
cause enough trouble, so he needs to cause some more. Now, examine the two
statues here, one of a female and one of a male. Then, talk to Lang. 

He will mention that he was with Alba the whole time, and when the floodlights
went on, he saw the shadow of the Yatagarasu. And then the lights went out,
probably kicked out, and it was in a state of panic in which the Yatagarasu

Franziska will mention that it is possible that the shadow could have been
caused by something else. Now, Edgeworth will mention that he might know the
true cause of the shadow. First, point the male Primidux statue. This is the
first part of the statue. Then point to the second, female statue and that
will be how the Yatagarasu was formed. 

Franziska will point out that there is a problem, right now, if the two
were added together, you'd probably end up with a demonic looking character,
and not the Yatagarasu. What part of the queen's statue made the hair of the
Yatagarasu? The left hand of the queen, which is the right hand on the

So what does this mean? It means that the Yatagarasu didn't actually visit
Allebahst, they only visited Babahl. And that the thief had an accomplice
in Allebahst to commit the murder there. And that will end your little

And in comes the badass, Detective Badd. He will say that he has a piece of
evidence, but Edgeworth might regret it if he sees it. It's a photo, of
something that is completely out of this word. It's the Yatagarasu, and it's
flying through the air. But that isn't possible. It was taken after the
fires on the fourth and fifth floors were out.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Photo of Yatagarasu 
  -> Taken from a building nearby at the moment of border crossing during 
     the fire. 

Apparently, it shows the thing moving from Babahl to Allebahst. Edgeworth
will mention that he had the pleasure of dealing with a case with a flying
person, which was the last case of Trials and Tribulations, and actually,
this takes place a few months after that. Edgeworth will say that he needs
to head back to Babahl for a little more investigating. So back we go, into
the Lobby, into the Open Air Stage and into the Babahl Embassy. 

[6.06] Day One, Part 2 - Re-Creation, Part 1

* Date - March 14, 10:37 PM        *
*                                  *
* Location - Babahlese Embassy     *
*            Secretariat's Office  *

Back in Babahl again. Now, we will need to know what the crime scene looked 
like before it was torched, so we again need the help of the Little Thief 
before we can go any further. But since the MIB are gone, we can have a little
look around first.


 Babahlese Embassy
 Secretariat's Office

Well, look at the desk and the only real suspicious thing here is the bottle
of Babahlese ink. But that is about it. Then, talk to Ambassador Palaeno 
for a little more information.

He will mention that there were 2 fires in the Embassy, not the single fire
that we saw. The first fire took place on the fourth and fifth floors of the
embassy but because there was the show in the theatre, it was kept quiet. 
The second fire was the major fire, and that makes the photo that you have
take place after the first fire.

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Photo of Yatagarasu
  -> Photo taken after the first fire on the 4th and 5th floors had taken 

The second fire only hit the third floor, caused most likely by the embers
left over from the first fire. This will net you a bit more evidence that 
you will need.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Fires in Babahl
  -> Two fires broke out in Babahl today. Touch the Check Button for details.

Now, talk to the Ambassador about his morning and afternoon activities. In
the morning, it turns out that they were cleaning, and well, that is due to 
the renovations.

 - New Logic Received - 

  -> The Babahlese Embassy is unergoing renovations from top to bottom.

He will also talk about how he was burning files and forgot to take out the
ashes, as well as spilling some ink on the back of the fireplace. They seem
like trivial details, but you don't get evidence for trivial details.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Amb. Palaeno's Testimony
  -> Spilled Babahlese ink onto back wall while burning files in fireplace. 
     Left ashes there.

When you talk to the Ambassador about Coachen's ink, he will mention that
there was a roaring fire, all in green, which is due to the ink burning. That
means that there must have been A LOT of Babahlese ink that went up in 
flames for that to happen. The problem is, why is there still ink left in
the desk?

Now, back to the desk, and open the slightly ajar compartment there for
a look inside the drawers. Examine the brown piece of paper and you will
note that it is very familar. Point that out, and use the Mask DeMasque II
note as a piece of contradictory evidence. 

It turns out that the handwriting on the note does indeed belong to Manny
Coachen, and as such, it was him who ordered the theft of the Allebahst
Primidux statue for himself. Now, talk to the Ambassador again. It turns
out that Manny probably stole it on order to have the Babahl side to possess
a little more power over Allebahst if they had the real Primidux statue. It
seems that Coachen wanted Palaeno as Ambassador of a united Cohdopia. 

Now, time for the Little Thief, to recreate the room as it was during the 
third floor fire. There is only one thing of interest right now, and that is
in the grandfather clock. There is a piece of wire, but what is that doing

 - New Evidence Received - 

  -> A good length of wire that was found wound up inside Babahl's grandfather

Now, you can examine the roaring green flames. Now, what could have caused
the roaring green flames that kept Ambassador Palaeno out of the room 
until later? Well, the piece of evidence you are looking for is the silhouette
lantern, it runs on whitcrystal oil, and it burns a flame. A green flame. And
what could have been used to fuel the fire that has whitcrystal oil in it? 
That would be Babahlese ink.

So finally, what could have been using Babahlese ink that is a ready source
of fuel for a fire? That would be paper with Babahlese ink on it. And what 
piece of evidence would that be. Counterfeit bills. That will lead to a bit
of updated evidence.

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Counterfeit Bills
  -> Bills circulating in Zheng Fa. Made by Coachen. They were all burned up
     in Babahl. 

Now, the last thing we need to do, and that is to talk to Detective Gumshoe.
It turns out that the second fire took place about the same time as the 
Yatagarasu image was seen in Allebahst. And people also saw a person in a
long coat, which is exactly what Kay saw. 

Anyway, Gumshoe got lost in this chase, and that was how he managed to save
Kay that quickly, because he was lost. It was takes to him that Kay wasn't
taken away by Shih-na. It turns out that she got there before him, and she
was in the room next door to this one. That is interesting.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Shih-na's Location
  -> She was in the room next to Mr. Coachen's office up until she tried to
     arrest Kay.

Then Edgeworth will talk to the Ambassador again, and this time, he will note
that because the two embassies used to be one, it was completely symmetrical,
and it still is to this day, but the things are rearranged a little. 

 - New Logic Received - 

 Bilateral Symmetery
  -> Because this used to be on embassy, offices on the two sides are 

Now, we need to connect all this logic up together. First off, connect the
Bilateral Symmetery with the Connected Fireplace. If the two embassies are
nearly the same, that means that the fireplaces should also be the same and
they should both connect up. So, is it possible that the killer used the
revolving fireplace?

 - New Logic Received - 

 Revolving Fireplace Used?
  -> It's possible someone used the revolving fireplace wall. I need to 
     examine it more.

Well, examine the fireplace. Something is missing, all that is in the 
fireplace is a pile of logs. But remember what the Ambassador said, they
were burning files and he forgot to clean up the ashes. So where did the 
ashes go? So, point to the logs and deduce with Ambassador Palaeno's
Testimony. The Ambassador is shocked. Where did all the ashes go?

 - New Logic Received - 

 Missing Ashes
  -> The ashes that should still be in the fireplace are missing. Where did
     they go ...?

Now, connect the last two pieces of logic together. If the revolving fire
place was used, that would explain why there were missing ashes, because
they were pushed to the other side of the fireplace. Also, there is no 
spilled Babahlese ink on the back of the fireplace, which there should be 
because the Ambassador spilled some as well. So, that means the fireplace
was used.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Revolving Fireplace Wall
  -> There are signs that the revolving fireplace wall on Babahl's side 
     has been used.

Now, if the person who Kay was chasing was the killer, which it is quite
likely, and then used the fireplace to duck next door, that leads to a 
single prime suspect. Well, this will give us a new piece of logic as well.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Escaped Through Revolving Fireplace
  -> The person Kay was chasing used the fireplace to escape into the room
     next door.

Now, connect this piece of logic with Shih-na's Location. If the person who
was in the neighbouring room is actually there, we should talk to them, they
should have seen the killer, at least. And with that, the investigation is
now complete. 

Well, we have bits and pieces, and we need to connect them all up in order
to get the real picture of what happened here. With Gumshoe through the
fireplace, Edgeworth even offers him to clean his coat, which he refuses, he
should have asked for the cash. Now, time to head off to the Theatrum 
Neutralis along with Shih-na. 

                                                              To be continued.
[6.07] Day One, Part 2 - Questioning, Part 2

* Date - March 14, 11:33 PM      *
*                                *
* Location - Theatrum Neutralis  *
*            Lobby               *

Well, it's time to front the demons at bay and we need to find the real
killer in this incident. Turns out that the handwriting analysis did indeed
match Coachen's handwriting to that note. 

 - Evidence Updated - 

 DeMasque II's Note
  -> Request to steal the Prmidux Statue. Handwriting matches that of Manny

Now, it is time to confront Shih-na, she is hiding something, something big.
Lang gets pissed, obviously, you are accusing his agent of something. 
Franziska says that she will supervise you on this, well, we don't need
supervision anyway. Well, time to show them what you've got, Prosecutor

A recap of Kay's testimony, about a suspicious person in a long coat. That is
the person who pretended to be the Yatagarasu. The rest you already know. 
The Yatagarasu was chased by Kay, entered the office, and then suddenly
disappeared. Then she was promptly arrested by Shih-na. Now, Lang will 
suppose that the Yatagarasu escaped under the cover of darkness behind Kay,
but that isn't possible, they would have ran straight into someone. And that
someone will be Shih-na. 

Shih-na will say that she saw no one, so they didn't escape through the door.
Now, Lang says that the Yatagarasu escaped before Shih-na came out, and that
is again impossible, because someone else blocked the way, a certain
detective, and that is Detective Gumshoe. It isn't likely that the Yatagarasu
avoided both of them. So because the door was blocked, there had to be another
escape path.

Indeed, that is true. But it isn't time to tell him about the revolving 
fireplace yet and we need to use it wisely, so we can present the Photo of
the Yatagarasu. Now, there is a reason why the Yatagarasu that Kay saw is not
the same as the one in the photo. Kay spotted the Yatagarasu during the 
second fire. The problem is the photo was taken straight after the first 
fire. Now, it is time that we face Lang, head on. But seeing that he was on
the Allebahst investigation the whole time, we need to face Shih-na. 

 - Shih-na's Movements - 

 - During the first Babahlese fire, I assisted in putting out the fire.

 - During the second fire, I was searching for the Yatagarasu that had 
   appeared in Babahl.

 - While I was searching, I heard a scream coming from the next room over.

 - Although I was in the next room, I was unable to catch a glimpse of the

 - To be honest, I'm actually very skeptical tht the girl's "Yatagarasu"
   even exists.

Well, it turns out that Shih-na was alone, she didn't have someone with her
so there isn't a way to test her alibi. Now, there is a contradiction in 
her testimony. If there really was a long coated person, which there was,
because the revolving fireplace was used, she should have seen that 
person. So present the Revolving Fireplace Door on the fourth statement. 

Lang sees what you are getting at, after all, he was there when you found 
the secret revolving fireplace in Allebahst. So it is not possible that 
Shih-na missed the Yatagarasu, her testimony was a lie. It all makes sense
now, she was in the long coat, escaped through the fireplace, ditched the
coat, and then reappeared as Shih-na to arrest Kay.

She starts laughing, and it is a laugh that we've all seen before. She is
the very same person who killed Byrne Faraday. She is Calisto Yew. Or so
she claims, she is the one and the same. Well, it is time to face her and
crush her once more. Where is the proof the fireplace was used? Well, 
present the Revolving Fireplace, it shows it has been used. Yet with the
ashes as testimony, she still wants to fight you. 

 - Shih-na's Rebuttal - 

 - In my eyes, all you've proved is that the rotating fireplace wall was

 - ... but you can't really call that proof as the Yatagarasu used the 
   fireplace, now can you?

 - So then, who was it that used the rotating wall? Show me your answer witgh
   real evidence.

 - Remember, we've already finished our very thorough investigation...

 - ... and we found not a single suspicious thing in Mr. Coachen's office.

Now, they found not a single suspicious thing in the office, but that is
very unlikely. In the office, there were signs that counterfeit bills were
burnt there, so present that as evidence to contradict the final statement.
She will mention that the evidence was found through the Little Thief, but
it isn't exactly hard evidence. 

On the note of things that the Interpol agents missed, they missed something
that is very suspicious in itself, the long piece of wire that was found
inside the grandfather clock. It was found at the scene of the murder, but
what does this mean?

So, which room would not have been checked properly? That is simple, the
murder scene has been gone over with a razor-sharp comb, so it is the room
that Shih-na was in, the room next to the murder scene, so present the room
with the Green Shih-na dot in it. Now, he will send Gumshoe off into that
room to find some valuable evidence.

Now, he finds some make-up, a pair of shoes and a coat. Now, Shih-na mentions
that the pieces of evidence aren't suspicious, they all belong to her. 
Edgeworth will request that he examine them, but Shih-na says no, it is her
belongings. Lang will let him have a look, to finish this investigation. If 
she is innocent, what does she have to worry about?

So, examine the coat. It is quite dirty and black on the bottom, and she
will mention that it was due to her efforts in putting out the fire. Which I
highly doubt. She says that you have no evidence on what it is, oh, but we
do. That black substance would be Babahlese ink, so present it. So if it is
Babahlese ink, it will prove Shih-na went through the fireplace.

Now, how can we prove it is Babahlese ink? That is easy, we need to burn the
coat. If it burns green, it will be made of whitcrystal oil, used in Babahlese
ink. And what do you know, it burns green. Edgeworth will say that she is 
Calisto Yew, but she denies it. Oh really, the laugh animation seriously said
otherwise. So, how are you going to prove she is Calisto Yew? 

The piece of evidence is something that the second Yatagarasu saved for 7 
years, and that is Ms. Yew's Perfume. How would it prove that? Fingerprints, 
since Yew used the bottle, there are fingerprints and we can compare Shih-na's
fingerprints to it. And she will have a crazy laugh, which is rather creepy.

Now, prepare for the best scene in history. Kay will attempt to attack, only
to be held hostage by Yew with a gun. She talks about the three legs of the
Yatagarasu. The same thing that Badd said, the three main reasons that the 
Yatagarasu will always be one step ahead. Remember:

 1. The Yatagarasu always knows the exact location of the target object.
 2. The Yatagarasu always knows exactly how to disarm the security system.

Those are the two reasons. That is why the Yatagarasu had Yew part of it, and
the identity is not that of Byrne Faraday or Calisto Yew, it was NEITHER
PERSON. But they are both the Yatagarasu. The Yatagarasu was not a lone thief,
but rather, it was a group. 

But lets recap. 

 1. The Yatagarasu always knows the exact location of the target object.

What better person to know where the clients hide their secrets that a 
defence lawyer that is defending them. 

 2. The Yatagarasu always knows exactly how to disarm the security system.

And what better person to do that than a prosecutor who knows exactly how the
criminal mind works, as well as their security systems. 

But what of the third skill?

 3. The Yatagarasu doesn't leave a single shread of evidence behind... ever...

And in comes Detective Badd. With his own gun trained on Yew. He explains, it
was only natural that the Yatagarasu didn't leave behind evidence, because 
who is the last person of the Yatagarasu? The lead detective on the case who
would be able to conceal the evidence. 

Well, a gunshot goes off, and someone's leg is shot. Lang. And that is 
seriously the most badass scene in Ace Attorney history. Better than von Karma
banging his head. With a search underway, a blade is found, and you will need
to pair it with the Babahlese Knife Handle. And this is the final nail in the
coffin against Calisto Yew. 

It seems that Yew was after Kay, she wanted the Little Thief, the very
device that Byrne Faraday used to infiltrate the embassy all those years ago.
But what is more important is that he stole the Yatagarasu Key. So why did
Faraday have to die? Because it was too big a problem for the smuggling ring.
Why did Yew betray them? Because that was what she was sent to do from the
very beginning. The leader of the ring hasn't changed, which means that the 
leader of the smuggling ring WASN'T Manny Coachen. Someone else. 

Anyway, she gives Kay some souvenirs, some hair sticks. And she will mention,
she didn't kill anyone tonight, so the real murderer is still out there.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Hair Sticks
  -> Hair sticks with a candy stripe pattern on them. There is some dirt on 
     the tips.

Well, it is past midnight right now. Well, today is the day that Badd can 
finally retire, Yew has been caught. She was the only reason he was still
in the force. Badd will give back the evidence from the missing file all
the way back in the first case. Which means Badd was the one who broke into
Edgeworth's office. 

So, the reason to form the Yatagarasu? After the KG-8 incident, Faraday
and Badd realised that there was a limit on what the law could do, the 
conclusive evidence that Faraday had was stolen, and the killer set free. So
the Yatagarasu was formed to expose the dirty companies who had ties to the
ring, and that includes the Amano Group. And soon, they arrived at the time
to find the true identity of the ringleader, but Yew betrayed them. But
it turns out, Cece Yew, the victim of the KG-8 incident, never had a siser.
So Calisto Yew is a fake. 

So, it is time for Badd to give the trump card. A piece of evidence that
Faraday hid all that time ago. It is a card from the smuggling ringleader,
a directives card. This belonged to Coachen, and it is covered in blood, the
blood of Cece Yew. This formed the reason of the white card, it was a sign
that the Yatagarasu knew about the smuggling ring's dealings. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Trump Card
  -> Evidnece from KG-8. Card containing orders from boss of smuggling ring
     to Coachen.

Finally, Badd gives Gumshoe a tape, the conclusive evidence that Faraday had
on the KG-8 case, before it was stolen. It was stolen, by Ernest Amano and he
hid it but after the kidnapping case, he was charged with obstruction of 
justice, and gave up the location of the tape.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Video Tape
  -> Evidence from KG-8. Faraday had obtained it once, but Ernest Amano had it

This is the very same tape that Portsman, the criminal in the first case, had
tried to hide from Edgeworth. Which means that he was one of the prosecutors
that was under the ring's control. Which makes sense, there was a crooked 
prosecutor working for the smuggling ring. The video tape was the insurance of
Amano, and Portsman was sent to steal it back. Portsman was also sent in to 
steal the Trump Card as well, but that didn't work out for him. However, both
pieces of evidence are illegal, they are both concealed evidence. But Badd will
point out, it will help to take down someone who is above the law, the same 
person Faraday said cannot be brought to court. And it is time to say goodbye.

                                                              To be continued.

[6.08] Day One, Part 3 - Questioning, Part 1

* Date - March 15, 12:07 AM      *
*                                *
* Location - Theatrum Neutralis  *
*            Lobby               *

Well, Edgeworth will reorganise the evidence and delete the old pieces that
are no longer necessary. That is something the previous Phoenix Wright games
should have done, but oh well.

Now, time to play the tape that Detective Badd has left you. The image on the
screen is very interesting. It's Manny Coachen, in hand is the Trump Card, 
the directives card, and he is carrying a knife. It seems that this is the 
image of Coachen as he was entering Cece Yew's building to murder her. 

Gumshoe will fiddle around with it until you get a scene with a car. That
is something that isn't right with this car. What is interesting is the flag
that is on the car, so point that out. It is the flag of Cohdopia. That means
that the car is an offical embassy or government car. So what is it doing

Now, out comes Ambassador Alba. He will request that you put the investigation
on hold for a moment. Unfortunately, without his permission, you cannot 
continue to investigate. And in walks Lang, walking again. Lang gets the bad
news and has a laugh and he claims that he knows the real killer. And he 
claims it was Franziska von Karma. Ouch. 

She isn't pleased. Lang will ask for permission to search the office again,
and Ambassador Alba grants it, given that he is about to catch the killer.

* Date - March 15, 12:53 AM        *
*                                  *
* Location - Allebahstian Embassy  *
*            Ambassador's Office   *

Lang will go over the facts again, Coachen was found in his office in Babahl
and was killed by an Allebahst ornamental knife. Mask DeMasque II was killed 
in Ambassador Alba's office and was killed by the Primidux statue. Lang will
say that Franziska came in to steal information about the smuggling ring. She
tries to whip Lang, but he stops her whip cold. Now that is awesome. Now,
time to counteract Lang, in order to keep this investigation alive.

 - Border-Crossing Weapons - 

 - One of Allebahst's knives was used in Babahl to murder Mr. Coachen.

 - And the murder weapon in the killing of DeMasque II is Babahl's Primidux

 - Somehow, these two objects were able to penetrate the two countries'
   impenetrable security.

 - The only one who traversed the two countries just before and after the
   crimes was you.

On the third statement, something isn't right. If the knife and the statue 
were the only two items to cross borders, then wouldn't one embassy have 2
statues and the other have none? Because if the statue was moved from Babahl
to Allebahst, how did the Allebahst statue end up in Babahl? So present the
Babahl Primidux Statue on the third statement.

Lang will say that it doesn't matter the number of items, Franziska could have
done it regardless. But is there no one else who travelled between the two
countries? Edgeworth will object, there was another such person. What if there
was another way to travel between countries, say, through the air? So, present
the photo of Yatagarasu here to prove that people can fly. 

So, how to explain why people can suddenly fly. Not humanly possible. So, what
could it have been that flew? Prehaps the Allebahst Primidux Statue took 
flight. So present it here. Shih-na could have dressed up the statue and send
it flying across to the other side of the embassy. 

But seeing that Franziska clearly has something to talk about, we need to get
some more information from her first. 

 - Movements in Allebahst - 

 - As I said earlier, I was assigned to guard duty in the Allebahstian 

 - After I saw the Steel Samurai off on his way towards the ambassador's 

 - ... I returned to the rose garden for a bit, and checked up on the security

 - After all the preparations were in place, I was called back to Ambassador
   Alba to his office.

Well, that is rather concise. But we need more detail, so press the final 
statement, what was Ambassador Alba doing when he was in his office, and what
exactly were they talking about, if they talked at all. 

 - When I arrived, Ambassador Alba was watering the flowers on the windowsill.

So, we still can't get anything out of this, so we need to press this for 
some more information. How did she know he was watering the flowers? As it 
turns out, Ambassador Alba greeted Franziska with a watering can in his 
hand, and he talked about grooming his flowers. She then mentions that all 
four of them were growing and in full bloom. Wait. That contradicts

 - There were four large passionflowers in full bloom in the flower box.

Something isn't right, so present the Passionflowers as your piece of evidence
at this point. Now, it is time to examine the flower box, something isn't
right and we need to prove it. Now, time to examine the passionflowers, and
examine the flower. Show Lang some evidence that something is amiss. What
is wrong is that two flowers are missing. And two sticks. 2 sticks used to
support the flowers. And we have 2 such sticks, hair sticks, and to boot,
they have some soil on it still. So present it here. 

This means that there were more smuggled items, after all, these sticks found
their way from Allebahst to Babahl. Now, the shape of the sticks are important
for their use. Something in the room could use the sticks and have them fly
through the air to the other side of the building. So, select the crossbow. 
These hair sticks work well as bolts, do they not?

So Lang will point out that statues can't fly if they are attached to the end
of an arrow. Time to counterattack.

 - Border-Crossing, Part 2 - 

 - So Babahl's statue was draped in the Yatagarasu's clothes, and then shot
   over here?

 - Even if you fried the arrows from this side, they wouldn't go far with a 
   statue tied to them!

 - I don't think I need to tell you that the Primidux Statues didn't sprout 

 - You're a realist, after all, aren't you?

Now, time to counterattack this argument. We need more information, so press
the first statement. Then, press the second statement. Now, the killer was
planning to fire the arrows, but attach something in order to ensure that
whatever was smuggled could be smuggled. So, lets move on.

 - If it wasn't a statue that was tied to the arrows, then what did the
   crossbow launch...?

Now, time to present the Wire, the useless piece of evidence sitting there
for quite some time. It is highly possible that the wire was attached to
the arrow, and then fired into Coachen's office. Seeing that the Ambassador's
office is on the fifth floor, and Coachen's office on the third floor, gravity
could easily move the statue down the wire. But the photo shows something
going away from Babahl into Allebahst. How can something defy gravity?

Now, what caused something to go uphill? It can't be a swinging motion, 
it wouldn't be flying straight at all, and it can't be bungee action, because
that would have it dip near to the ground, so it has to be rotary motion. 
The two items could be transported at the same time. The wire could also have
been actually 2 lines of transit, not just one. 

And, given that one of the Primidux statues is real and one fake, one would 
have been heavier than the other, so it would collide in the middle of 
transit. Now, the problem is that there is again, not a lot of evidence to
go on right now. So, what could it have been that had a circular belt out
of the wire? Select the ceiling fan, that could have provided the power to
move things uphill.

With the two ceiling fans, they could have formed a pulley system. So, this
leads us to the question, who is the mastermind of this entire scheme? A 
single name will lead to an international incident, so there is only one
person that fits the bill. But what piece of evidence proves who it is? The
Crossbow Arrows will, so present them here. 

So, who grew the passionflowers to that size? Who knew that there were 
ceiling fans in both offices? So, that leaves us with one person. Quercus
Alba. So, what was Ambassador Alba trying to do by firing arrows and
transporting statues? So, what was it that the Ambassador tried to obtain to
no avail. Present the Allebahst Primidux Statue. Why would he swap the real
statue with a fake?

So, examine the head of the statue, and it turns out that there is a gap
there. And what do we find inside the statue. Examine it and we find out that
these are the counterfeit plates used in the counterfeiting operating that
is hurting Zheng Fa. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Counterfeit Plate
  -> This was found from within the fake Primidux Statue Alba smuggled into
     his country.

Now, given that only the Ambassador and the secretariat can handle the 
statue, it makes the statue an ideal location to hide contraband, in this
case, the counterfeit plate. When the Ambassador got the statue, he ran
into Mask DeMasque II, and in self-defence, Ambassador Alba killed the
thief. Then, using the Samurai Sword, he puts blood on it to frame Larry.
So, is Ambassador Alba the leader of this smuggling ring?

Now, Alba will disagree with you, the leader of the ring was Coachen. He
questions Lang's logic after he was about to accuse Franziska of murder, and
it turns out that it was a lie, the only reason he accused Franziska was that
he could investigate the office again, and sink his fangs into the Ambassador.
Looks like he has been had. Now, time to face the real mastermind here, and
for those who have played against all the Ace Attorney "bosses", Manfred
von Karma, Damon Gant, Matt Engarde, Dahlia Hawthorne and Kristoph Gavin,
this guy will put them all to shame.

Ambassador Alba questions Lang, does he have any evidence or proof that he is
the head of the smuggling group? He doesn't go without a fight, he claims that
he knew nothing of all this smuggling, turning the whole situation around. Is
there nothing that can bring this man down? Flaskback to when Detective Badd
broke into Edgeworth's office, the three members of the Yatagarasu. But
the two pieces of evidence that Badd hid is illegal. 

Now, you need to make a choice whether or not to use the trump card, but 
either way, it doesn't matter, you will use it anyway, this man is one man
that refuses to obey the law, he is outside the law. Anyway, the Ambassador
claims that he has never seen the card before in his life, and it was sent
by the ringleader. He questions whether or not the card is useful, oh, but
it is. And the usefulness of the video. 

* Date - March 15, 1:34 AM       *
*                                *
* Location - Theatrum Neutralis  *
*            Lobby               *

Now, time to play the tape. Now we get the image of Coachen as he is about
to murder Cece Yew. Now, present the hand that is carrying the directives
card, Coachen's right hand, which is on the left side of your screen. Now,
how to prove that card is the very same one that you are holding. Examine the
blood patch on the back of the card. Now, for the next piece of footage.

It's the image of the offical Cohdopian car. Now, to zoom in on the image
and you should select the breastpocket of the man in the car that is visible,
that is probably Manny Coachen. And now, out comes the real Quercus Alba,
breaking his walking stick and standing upright. 

So, how are you going to prove that he was in the car during that murder? 
Seeing that Cohdopia doesn't exist, the records of that nation were deleted
and the logs for that car as well. But there is evidence on the image, on 
the reflection of the back seat, there is an image of a medal on the mirror.
That's good enough for me, present it. And the Ambassador digs his own grave,
he says that he is the only person with that particular medal. 

It looks like it is all sealed, but why the ominous music? He admits that
he killed Mask DeMasque II out of self-defence, and tries to escape it by
saying that is was justified self-defence. His life was in danger. But he
claims that Mask DeMasque II left a mark on him, and he shows everyone the
wound that was left on him. 

But how did he get wounded when Mask DeMasque II didn't have a weapon. Turns
out that he hid the weapon, the weapon were the bonsai trimming shears. 

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Amb. Alba's Wound
  -> Mr. Alba claims it's proof he was stabbed by DeMasque II, so it was 
     justified defence.

He resolves that, and now onto smuggling and counterfeiting. He blames it
all on his secretary, and claims that he has no knowledge of it. But there
is a reason you can't bring him to the courts, the power of 
extraterritoriality. The embassy is on Allebahstian soil, and the trial would
have to be held in Allebahst so the crimes would not be tried in the court

But the Ambassador has confessed to his crimes, and he has full
extraterritorial rights, so the powers apply to other nation's soil as well.
So wherever a crime takes place, he cannot be tried due to his position as
the Ambassador. So this is why he cannot be taken to court. And off he goes
to fetch the eviction papers. 

                                                              To be continued.

[6.09] Day One, Part 3 - Investigation, Part 1

* Date - March 15, 2:11 AM       *
*                                *
* Location - Theatrum Neutralis  *
*            Lobby               *

The problem is that no one has the power to bring down the Ambassador. Well,
Lang walks off for a little bit, but there is really nothing you can do to
bring this guy down. Everyone will feel down but Kay's feel good music comes
back on. Well, Gumshoe goes back to Babahl to check it out some more, and
Franziska will head back into Allebahst to check that out as well. Time for
a little housekeeping, and investigation start.


 Theatrum Neutralis

But before we start, we get some logic over what has happened in the last
few hours.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Agitated Alba
  -> I sense that there is something he doesn't want us to investigate.

 Coachen's Counterfeiting Op.
  -> Used Babahlese Embassy's printing press and Babahlese ink to make 
     counterfeit bills. 

Now, we need to nullify the extraterritorial rights that the Ambassador
has in order to bring him down. There is one thing you need to look at,
and that is the picture that is right next to you, so examine it. 

Now, look at Alba's flower bouquet, and right about the red rose, there
is a little flower that looks out of place, so examine it. It looks out
of place, but we know that we've seen it before. So, highlight that with
your Deduce button, and now, present the Allebahstian Knife. The flower
on the photo looks exactly like the handle that is on the knife. Even 
down to the missing petal. So that means that Alba is carrying the 
murder weapon to Coachen's murder.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Commemorative Photo
  -> Taken at Theatrum Neutralis. The murder weapon can be seen in Mr.
     Alba's bouquet. 

 - Evidence Updated - 

 Allebahstian Knife
  -> Blade determined to be Allebahstian. The flower motif's petals are

Now, we are done examining the evidence, we need to connect the remaining
pieces of logic together to see what really happened. Now, connect the
Renovations and Coachen's Counterfeiting Op together. If the Babahlese
Embassy was undergoing renovations, it would have revealed the secret 
location on where Coachen was hiding all the Babahlese ink. That would 
explain why the plates and ink had to be removed. Who has to most to gain
out of Coachen's death? Colias Palaeno wouldn't have, he cannot managed
without Manny, and Manny is dead, so that isn't gaining anything. So that
leaves Quercus Alba. That leaves him with motive.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Motive to Kill Coachen
  -> Alba could conveniently place all of the guilt for the smuggling 
     onto Coachen. 

Now, connect the last two pieces of logic together. Remember that Calisto
Yew said that she didn't kill Coachen, so that leaves the Ambassador as 
the killer. Therefore, the reason he doesn't want you to investigate is
that you might find evidence of his wrongdoings. He doesn't want you to
know how Coachen was killed and the circumstances around it. And remember
that Coachen was the one pushing for Ambassador Palaeno to be the head
Ambassador when Cohdopia was reunited, so he could effectively take over
the smuggling ring from Ambassador Alba, and that is motive indeed. And
that would be why Mask DeMasque II was sent to get the Primidux Statue,
it had the plates inside. But how was the murder performed, Ambassador Alba
was in Allebahst and Coachen was found in Babahl. Strange.

So, where could the real murder have taken place, a place where both parties
could be together without raising suspicion. That's simple, the very place
you are right now, the Theatrum Neutralis. Now, this makes it interesting,
the theatre isn't on Allebahst soil, so Ambassador Alba is powerless to 
kick you out. Now, time to check the immigration records for both 
countries. The problem will be Allebahst, I doubt that Ambassador is going to
be very co-operative. 

But Franziska walks in and she has the security footage from both Babahl
and Allebahst. That will help things.

 - New Evidence Received - 

 Security Footage
  -> Footage of the entraceways into Babahl and Allebahst from the Theatrum

Now, time to play the footage that will help us solve the case. We will get
the footage from 5:21, 5:22 and 5:23. The one you should examine is the last
one, that is on 5:23. Examine the pushcart that the Steel Samurai is moving
along. There is something wrong with how the pushcart bulges out.

 - New Evidence Received - 

  -> Steel Samural pushed this to Allebahst from the dressing room. The 
     bulge is unnatural.

Now, when the Babahl footage is examined, something is wrong, there is 
nothing, and that is suspicious in itself. The problem is that there is no
Coachen entering Babahl. And with that, your investigation is complete. 

[6.10] Day One, Part 3 - Questioning, Part 2

Now, the battle will start. This guy is going to be hard to crack. It seems
that Ambassador Alba is as arrogant as ever, asking why you are on his 
country's soil, too bad that the theatre sits on our soil. Anyway, it seems
that the good Ambassador is escaping by going to the airport to fly home.
And when he can't be stopped, Ambassador Palaeno walks in and asks him to
wait for a bit, which he agrees to. It seems that is the most Ambassador
Palaeno can do, and that will be enough. 

Ambassador Alba will limit you to just a question, and that will do, what was
his alibi that proves that he could not have killed Manny Coachen. It seems
that the game is about to begin.

 - Ambassador Alba's Alibi - 

 - Frankly, I still don't understand why I am being placed under suspicion

 - Under your hypothetical scenario, Mr. coachen and I were fellow smugglers.

 - But to get to the point, I was in Allebahst the whole time.

 - So it's simply not possible for me to have killed him in Babahl. That is
   my alibi.

He simply isn't answering the question, so we need to press him for a little
more information. So press his second statement. He claims that it doesn't 
change the fact that he has no motive, so we need to disprove that.

 - In that case, what motive would I have had to kill my co-conspirator?

He has plenty of motive when Coachen threatened to take over his role as the
ringleader, starting with the theft of the Primidux statue, so present the
DeMasque II note here. Coachen betrayed the Ambassador, and also, it would
have been easier to place all the blame of the smuggling onto Coachen. And he
becomes one of the few non-attorneys to use the OBJECTION! phrase. 

Now, the Ambassador goes on to that even if that was a motive, it doesn't 
prove that he did commit the murder. Man, this guy is trying to dodge 
everything and weasel out of everything that he possibly can. And now that
he has answered your one question, he will be leaving and he even turns down
a request from Ambassador Palaeno. He really wants to get out of here. And
now Kay stops him.

Kay presents the old organiser from her father, Byrne Faraday, the one from
the second KG-8 incident. And then Kay brings out the Little Thief, which
was used by her father. With those two pieces of evidence, Kay claims that
it is enough to send to Allebahst to remove him. In exchange for the 
evidence, she will ask that she faces Edgeworth again. Now, to sink a hole
in his ship.

 - Alba's Alibi, Part 2 - 

 - The last time I met with Mr. Coachen was here at the Theatrum Neutralis.

 - After that, I was in Allebahst the rest of the time, as I stated earlier.

 - In any case, I did not see Mr. Coachen again after that. 

 - So you see, there is no time span in which I could've killed him. Wouldn't
   you agree?

He will double the penalty if you ask the wrong questions or press the
wrong statements, so we need to get this one right. All you need to do is to
present evidence that proves that Coachen wasn't killed in Babahl, but in the
Theatrum Neutralis. That means, presenting the Commemorative Photo on the
first statement. It proves that he could have killed Coachen.

And when he is presented with that claim, he walks off and says that he
needs to catch his flight. And now, no one can lay a finger on him. And in
comes Lang and all his men. And guess what, they all block his way. Alba
claims that it could cause an international incident if he was touched by
any of his men, but Lang disagrees. Lang says the best line ever

"Your diplomatic immunity ... has just been revoked."

For those who have the time, it comes exactly from this link. 


I advise that it isn't really for kiddies. Anyway, his diplomatic immunity
has been revoked, so he no longer has any extraterritorial rights. It seems 
that Interpol and the Imperial House of Allebahst has got in contact, and 
well, Mr Alba is no longer an Ambassador anymore. Shame. And it's all due
to the videotape that Detective Badd gave us. 

But Alba goes on, saying that even though he is no longer an ambassador,
you still don't have any evidence on him. And now, it is time to burn this
withering piece of deadwood once and for all. 

 - Alba's Alibi, Part 3 - 

 - I killed Mr. Coachen in this theatre using a knife that was stuck in my 

 - I left that bouquet in the theatre! Anyone could've taken the knife from

 - Besides, Mr. Coachen's body was discovered in Babahl, right?

 - There is no way for me to have transported his body from the theatre
   to Babahl!

There might be no way to move the body into Babahl through the front gates,
but it is certainly possible that he could have used the pushcart to get
it into Babahl from the Theatrum Neutralis. The dead body of Manny Coachen
could explain the unnatural lump that is bulging out of the pushcart. So
present the Notes on Coachen's Body as what is under the cart. And just as
Alba is about to bust free ....

... In comes in Detective Gumshoe with his remix theme tune. Gumshoe has
found the pushcart that was used to transport the body. It was found in the
open-air stage. It was found on the edge of the stage. Now, examine the
pushcart, and switch the angle for a top down view to see the bloodstain
inside the cart. Now, why was it brought to Allebahst instead of Babahl?
That is simple, to tamper with the dead body. 

He says that there is no way to move the dead body from Allebahst to
Babahl, security is too tight. Really? Now for his testimony on the matter.

 - Movements in Allebahst - 

 - After I returned to Allebahst, I had my picture taken with the Steel 
   Samurai, shaking hands.

 - Then, just as I was about to start my speech, the Yatagarasu appeared.

 - I feared for the national treasures, so I raced back to my office.

That is short, and pretty much useless. Press every statement, and we 
get nothing. There isn't any contradictions to point out. And now a hold
it appears, that sound, and in comes the Steel Samurai and Pink Princess.
The two troublemakers. Well, time for a little comic relief I suppose. 
But the important thing is, that found the Iron Infant, soaked, in the
middle of a pool, in Babahl. But there is no pool in Babahl. But if 
Larry was in Allebahst the whole time, how did it get to Babahl and in
the middle of a non-existant pool?

If it was lost in the rose garden in Allebahst, and it ended in Babahl,
then we have found the secret smuggling route that exists between 
Allebahst and Babahl. The route taken was bilateral symmetry. Remember
that the Embassy is completely symmetrical. Now, with the map, point
out on the Babahlese Embassy where a pool would be if the Embassy is
completely symmetrical. 

Lang will keep an eye on Alba, and Gumshoe will report in, turns out,
that there is a reservoir, just like the fountain in the rose garden. 
And that gives us how the body ended up in Babahl, the body was 
smuggled through the pool of water.

Now, the physical proof. Proven by the Iron Infant, who is completely
drenched, there has to be a connection between the pools of water in
Babahl and Allebahst. Lang will interrupt, but how is the body going to
swim through a pipe? Is there a way to get all that water out of the 
pool? Yes there is. The pushcart didn't move through the water, the
pool was drained of its water. And what made that happen? The Fires
in Babahl.

With the fire, people used the water in the reservoir to put out the
fires that were in Babahl, and that drained the water. With the water
drained, it was enough that the pipe could be used to transport something
from Allebahst to Babahl. But the pools are deep, and with no ladder or
way up, how could the body be moved to the surface? It is easy, all one
would need to do is to wait for the Fountain Spouts. 

By using the spouts, one can control the water level. And that leads to
the end of the line. With the water level drained due to the fire, Shih-na
crossed into Babahl through the pipe, and then the Fountain Spouts were
used to raise the water levels again. And it explains how it was moved. 

But still, he objects. He wants proof. There is an item that can prove
that the body was moved through the water, and that item is the useless
Pick. But it turns out it isn't a guitar pick, if you look at the murder
weapon, it is missing a petal, and this is actually that petal. It belongs
to the Allebahstian Knife. And what's more, the pick is wet and the only
way that is possible is through the water transporting method. 

Is this the end of the line? No, he still wants to fight, this guy will
try to fight to the very end. Time for some more testimony, and time to
end this guy. 

                                                              To be continued.

[6.11] Day One, Part 3 - Finale

* Date - March 15, 3:33 AM       *
*                                *
* Location - Theatrum Neutralis  *
*            Lobby               *

Time to end all of this. Time for the last piece of testimony from this old
windbag, and time to nail his coffin shut. 

 - The Steel Samurai's Show - 

 - I watched from the last row. The stage was well-lit, but it was dark out 
   in the audience.

 - I swear I was there in the audience, but it's hard to prove that, I 

 - I do remember the contents of the show very well, though. Is that proof 
   enough for you?

 - Those moving scenes were seared into this old man's heart. I'll never 
   forget them.

Well, there isn't much to go on, so for now, you will need to press, so press
the third statement, lets see if he does remember the contents of the show
that well. He talks about seeing the Early Summer Rain Jab. Wait, that isn't

 - One of the scenes was of his never-before-seen "Early Summer Rain Jab" 

Finally, we catch this lying ratbag right now. There was no such move, the
spear that would have been used to perform this move was damaged and dented
by Larry, so it isn't possible. Therefore, present the Samurai Spear at 
this point. 

Finally, we have caught him out. He wasn't there, otherwise, he could have
known that the special move wasn't performed at all, instead, we got the
Sushi Slash. Then again, he just laughs it off, and this time, he makes the
excuse that he was in the bathroom. Seriously, is that the best you've
got? Anyway, then an argument gets out over the Steel Samurai, seriously, 
don't they have a criminal to lock up?

But that doesn't change the fact that we still need more definitive 
evidence to lock this tyrant away. But Larry spews his mouth questioning 
how Alba knew about the move. It was a secret to most of the staff as well, 
and it was a move that was decided right before the start of the show, about
5 minutes before the show. But the spear had already been bent, so it was
pointless. And most of the staff hadn't heard of the move. This is very

Alba will interrupt, saying that Larry should shut it, and now we have the
problem arising from Larry's testimony. How could Alba have learnt of the
name of the move? It couldn't have asked about it, it was a secret after
all, and he couldn't have thought it up, it is too big a coincidence, so
he must have saw it. Where, in the dressing room.

And what is more interesting is that in the dressing room, it contains
one piece of evidence that is vital to the case. The pushcart. So present
it here. Because the body was moved via pushcart, the murderer of Manny
Coachen is someone who visited the dressing room. And because during the
show, it would have been empty, it would be the perfect place to murder

Alba then admits, he went into the dressing room, but he did only because
he got lost on the way to the toilet. Seriously? Edgeworth needs more
evidence and asks Lang, but they have already searched the room, and found
nothing. But just as Alba is about to escape, a Hold It appears, and this
time, from the Pink Princess.

She gives him a pack of Samurai Dogs. Well, that doesn't seem very useful
at all. She says that it looks special because it has a special design like
the Japanese flag, but that isn't right. And now, more flashbacks.

 - New Logic Received - 

 Rising Sun Dogs
  -> Taken from the dressing room, the fan's rising un is filled in for 
     some reason.

 Samurai Dogs
  -> Boxes of Samurai Dogs were sitting in the pushcart.

 Body in the Pushcart
  -> The killer placed Coachen's body in the pushcart in the dressing room.

Now, time to connect the dots for the last time. Connect the Samurai Dogs
with the Body in the Pushcart. Because the body was in the pushcart, the
samurai dogs had to be removed from the cart. That's obvious. 

 - New Logic Received - 

 Samurai Dogs were Removed
  -> Dogs were put on dressing room floor by the killer to make room for
     the body. 

Now, connect the final two pieces of logic together. This red dot on the
box should not have appeared, and it is proof that the murder took place
in the dressing room. And then, Edgeworth thanks the Oldbag, and Gumshoe
questions his sanity. So, what on the box can bring down Alba? That is
very simple. Examine the red dot on the flag. It's not coloured in, it
is blood. And off for analysis.

By the time Larry got back to the dressing room, the body was already was
in the pushcart, and the boxes of Samurai Dogs gone. And Oldbag's theft
has pretty much put a nail in Alba's coffin. He still doesn't call it
quits yet. This guy is hard, I told you.

In comes the Lab analysis, the blood on the spot, if it is Coachen's it 
doesn't prove anything still, just that the murder took place the dressing
room, but not that Alba did it. We were so close and it looks like Alba is
going to get away with it. A final Hold It! and this time, from the Forsenics

Turns out, the blood isn't the same blood as the victim, which means, the
blood is not related to the case. Alba seems to be gloating in his apparent
victory. And Lang gets to utter a swear word at Alba, the second in Ace 
Attorney history. A reference to Phoenix Wright, what would that man do, 
to turn the situation around. To turnabout the situation. It isn't a question
of who the blood belongs to, but rather, why is there blood in the first 

And that means that there must have been a fight, between Coachen and the
murderer. And that the blood belongs to the murderer in the case. And the
blood then belongs to Quercus Alba. But how did his blood get there? That is
again quite simple, remember, he was wounded, so present his wound here.
And now, what could have caused the wound, what Coachen could have used to
fight back. And now we end the legacy of the Yatagarasu, by presenting the
Yatagarasu's Key. 

The very key that took the life of Byrne Faraday will now be used in 
retribution, to seal the fate of the man he was chasing after, Quercus Alba,
once and for all. Alba was so close, and it was due to us that he was 
stopped, once and for all. 

* Date - March 17, 11:21 AM        *
*                                  *
* Location - District Court        *
*            Defendant Lobby No. 2 *

Well, Alba is in court, on trial for his crimes. Edgeworth will be leading the
trial against Alba here, and then Franziska will have the honours to 
prosecuting Alba in Allebahst the next week. Also, Ernest Amano, the crook,
is on trial as well. It seems that the head of the smuggling ring has been
cut off. Kay then makes an appearance, and surprisingly enough, so does Lang,
a person who doesn't like prosecutors at all. 

And surprisingly, Lang thanks Edgeworth for catching Alba. But Edgeworth 
points out if it were not for Lang and removing Alba's diplomatic immunity, he
wouldn't be on trial.

And the game ends, with Edgeworth making a speech on what prosecutors really
are, and what thy should do. And we end with the OBJECTION! And now, let the
credits roll. 

                                                                       THE END
