The whole episode starts in an art room. We see a mystery person draw something, but it never shows who, or what.

We then cut to a game of poker. In the end, the two show full house. One of them wins and a bottle is picked up. It looks like a bottle is hitting someone. We then see cards drop and we see what looks like an unmoving body. A phone call is made. What just happened?

Defense Attorney

[edit | edit source]

Apollo Justice

This is Apollo's very first case as a defense attorney. He didn't expect to defend a legend of his job, or a former legend anyways.


[edit | edit source]

Phoenix Wright

Phoenix is much more laid back than he was 7 years ago. He lost his badge sometime after the events of Trials and Tribulations. Now he works at Borscht Bowl Club as a pianist and undefeated poker player. Just what happened that made him turn in his badge? That's for later. What matters right now is you have to defend this man.
