ROM Information

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice is a visual novel adventure video game developed and published by Capcom, and the sixth main entry in the Ace Attorney series. The game was released for Nintendo 3DS in Japan in June 2016, and in North America and Europe in September that year. Versions for iOS and Android followed a year later in September 2017, and it was released for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One in January 2024 as part of the Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy compilation.

The story of Spirit of Justice is set roughly one year after its predecessor, Dual Destinies, and once again focuses on defense attorney Phoenix Wright and his two understudies Apollo Justice and Athena Cykes. While previous games in the series have been set in Los Angeles, California (Japan in the original Japanese releases), Spirit of Justice sees Phoenix travel to the fictional kingdom of Khura’in, a deeply religious nation where the art of spirit channeling originates.

Roughly half the game’s episodes detail Phoenix’s activities in Khura’in, while the other half follow Apollo and Athena, who are left to watch over the Wright Anything Agency in Phoenix’s absence. The game features the reintroduction of Maya Fey, a spirit medium and Phoenix’s longtime friend and former assistant, who has not appeared in the main series in person since Trials and Tribulations. Other returning characters include Trucy Wright, a magician and Phoenix’s adopted daughter; Ema Skye.

A former detective who has recently become a forensic investigator; Simon Blackquill, a prosecutor and former prison inmate who is friends with Athena; Pearl Fey, Maya’s younger cousin and fellow spirit medium; and Miles Edgeworth, the district chief prosecutor and Phoenix’s friend and rival. New to the series are Rayfa Padma Khura’in, the princess and royal priestess of Khura’in, and Nahyuta Sahdmadhi, an international prosecutor and devout Khura’inese monk.

Spirit of Justice continues the investigation and courtroom gameplay of its predecessors, in which players take the role of the defense attorneys Phoenix Wright, Apollo Justice, and Athena Cykes, and try to defend their clients. Like previous games in the franchise, chapters are divided into two types of gameplay: investigations, where players gather information from people and search for evidence, and trials, where they must use evidence to find contradictions in witness testimonies.

Investigations utilize the 3D navigation introduced in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies, allowing players to navigate environments from various angles. Along with returning gameplay elements, such as Psyche-Locks, Perceiving, and the Mood Matrix, the game introduces Divination Séances, which show the final moments of a victim before their death. By paying close attention to the senses that appear in the séances, players must find contradictions in the insights given about them.

What if the ROM is encrypted?

If you find a ROM that's encrypted, you need to use the Batch CIA 3DS Decryptor, created by Matif.

The ROM isn't working correctly?

Not all games are fully compatible with Citra. If you do find a game that's not working, try using the new Lime3DS emulator, the continuation of Citra since its shutdown.
