Phoenix is a defense attorney and is the protagonist of the first three games, and a secondary character in Apollo Justice. He is often called "Nick" by his closest friends, or "porcupine head" by others due to his spiky hair. For more information, please visit his character profile page at Court-Records.net.
The new defense attorney protagonist for the fourth Ace Attorney, Apollo gets his start defending Phoenix Wright in the courtroom while under the tutelage of Kristoph Gavin. For more information, please visit his character profile page at Court-Records.net.
There are four games in the main series.
There is also a spin-off series called "Ace Attorney Investigations".
Each game has a different artist. These are listed.
Soundtracks are available from Playasia, Sulepeter and VGMworld. Use "Gyakuten Saiban" as the keyword when searching these sites, as the soundtracks have not been released in the US or Europe.
The majority of the Ace Attorney/Gyakuten Saiban music that you hear from your DS is in midi format. Rips of the MIDIs have been obtained from others (see "site" page). The MIDIs are then run through a program called Noteworthy Composer (www.noteworthysoftware.com). Noteworthy converts the midi file into sheet music notation, but the result is very messy. There are up to 15 staves of notation, tons of accidentals and the note durations are split very oddly, so hours have to be spent while tidying it up and arranging it for a batch of instruments. Simple songs such as the Blue Badger theme take about half an hour to arrange, while a piece with many parts such as Great Revival can take up to three hours to tidy up.
NWC is a file extension generated by Noteworthy Composer, the notation program that the music sheets are generated in. Only Noteworthy Composer or Noteworthy Player can open these files. Finished transcriptions are available for download in "NWC", "MID", "DOC" and "PNG" formats so you can find one that suits you.
We are sorry, but this is not possible due to reasons involving time constraints. However, it is possible for you to do this yourself! This why the songs have also been submitted in NWC format. Follow these instructions:
If you're lucky, Gametabs.net may have transcribed a particular song. If so, tabs will be linked.
If the song is mentioned in the navigation section then it will be added in the future. If it is not listed, then it may not be suitable for transcription or is mp3 streamed on the DS cartridge, and therefore no midi version is available. Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney in particular has a lot of techno-style music that isn't well suited for sheet notation. Our main aim is to have all the character themes and courtroom music from each game available.
Do one of the following, depending on which relates to you:
For certain songs, such as Eccentric and Steel Samurai, the melody swaps between the piano R.H. as well as the main melody stave - for these songs make sure you have the piano R.H. box checked as well when you print.
No. However, there was once a book sold containing music from the series, but it is now out of stock.
If a book does become available, the songs contained within it will be removed from this site, due to copyright laws.
Yes. We'd be happy to host it for you. It must be submitted to via the contact address at the bottom of the page and submitted as a NWC file (see Sheet Music Questions above) so it can be generated in PNG and Word doc formats. However, it will take time before the sheet will be uploaded to the site.
