Just like the prior AA games, this one has a compelling overarching story.  The writer/writers of these knows what they hell they’re doing.  All of the secret connections and inner workings are just amazing.

That DLC case about the orca was really good and pretty tragic tbh.  It was definitely worth the money I spent on it.

I don’t really remember when I started/finished this again, but I know I picked it up from the Nintendo eShop on the 7th and I’ve already played through it, so that’s good enough.  This was an easy purchase and replay because the game is just so good.  It has replay value because the puzzles are complicated and compelling enough that you still have to either remember what you did or figure them out again.  I’m really hoping they release the rest of the series on the Switch.

Oh my god, something huge happened in the fifth and final turnabout.  I’m not sure if this is the DLC I saw or if there’s still another case I can download afterwards.  Most games have four cases with Rise from the Ashes as another notable exception with its five.

So the prosecutor in this game has a hilarious and ironic status, which just goes along with the bonkers situations all the characters get into.  He’s apparently an ex-samurai with a pet bird that likes to terrorize the judge, and he uses the honorific “dono.”  I have one more case even after the one I’m still on, so there are more hijinks to look forward to.

I enjoyed this, and the only reason I can think for it’s lower rating than the orig trig is it’s different?  But it’s not really different?  It has a different main character, but Apollo is just as adorable, goofy, and unlucky as Phoenix lol.
