Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth (逆転検事 Gyakuten Kenji, lit. Turnabout Prosecutor) is a spin-off game, and overall the fifth game, of the Ace Attorney series of adventure video games, released in 2009. It centers around prosecutor Miles Edgeworth and detective Dick Gumshoe, with some other characters from the main Ace Attorney series appearing in the game with varying degrees of prominence. This is a departure from the previous games, in which Phoenix Wright was either the main character or a major character, although he does make a cameo appearance in this game. Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth was followed by a sequel, Gyakuten Kenji 2, released only in Japan.




Similar to previous Ace Attorney games, there are five cases in the game, and to unlock a new case, the previous case needs to be solved. Chronologically, the game takes place after Trials and Tribulations and before Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney. The five cases are presented out of chronological order in the game, though each describe a series of common events connected to an international smuggling ring and the Great Thief Yatagarasu that seeks to expose the smuggling ring by "stealing the truth" and revealing the evidence to the public.


  • Ace Attorney Investigations was originally supposed to star Ema Skye as the main protagonist but the idea was dropped when the team decided to go with Miles Edgeworth instead, due to him being a more popular character according to fan feedback.[1]
