Name your Top Ten Tunes tunes from the Ace Attorney games!
In celebration of the latest trailer released for the latest Gyakuten Saiban (otherwise known as Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright in the west) video game, it’s time for another Top Ten tunes poll! This one is dedicated to Gyakuten Saiban, a marvellous Nintendo DS series from Capcom in which you play a defence attorney, Phoenix Wright, who solves the most ridiculous, suspenseful and entertaining murders of all time! Throw in some spirit mediums, hapless detectives, samurai superheroes and film stars and you have one of the most addictive video game series ever. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve replayed all these games – I probably won’t tire of them for a long time.
I’m assuming most of you readers will have at least heard of the series, if not played it, and obviously only those who have played will be able to vote in this poll. If you haven’t already, buy the first game and try the series out, and expect to buy the rest of them! To date, the west has had the first four Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney games translated, along with the spin-off Ace Attorney: Investigations in which you play Phoenix’s rival, Miles Edgeworth. The second Miles Edgeworth game was never released outside of Japan, sadly, so the fans are pretty ecstatic about the upcoming release of this new instalment!
Here’s the trailer:
OK, so that’s all the ‘Phoenix Wright is the best thing ever’ rambling out of the way. Here’s how to vote…
- Post below and name up to 10 of your favourite songs from any of the Ace Attorney/Ace Investigations games that have been released in the west
- Share this poll with your friends, and get more and more people to enter!
- Voting closes on Monday 13th May! Sophie will then mash together a short video of the Top Ten tunes and report back to the blog
Need reminding of some of the songs? Here are two of my favourites to get you started:
Cornered (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney)
Shi-Long Lang’s theme (Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth)
Gyakuten Saiban 5 will out in Japan on 25th July, so the rest of us will have to wait longer for a translation. In the meantime, you can reminisce about the ‘good old games’ or play them for the first time and see what all the fuss is about. Oh, and it’s out on the 3DS, so if you’ve not got one, here’s a good excuse to buy it!
Check out the results from the Final Fantasy Top Ten poll that ran on the blog a few months ago!
Get voting and have fun!
