Defendant Lobby No.6
Since it's such a tense adventure at Kura'in Village, this court case might be the detour you're after. So far since "Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Justice for All" there's very few women you have played throughout the series: Maya, Mia and most currently ... Athena. This is perhaps the last time you get to play a female defense attorney.
Unluckily for you, Phoenix Wright is over at Kura'in Village while Apollo Justice is stuck with Trucy Wright, getting ready to set up the magic show with Apollo acting as her assistant. That leaves you with Simon Blackquill from the last game, "Dual Destinies".
For those who don't know Simon Blackquill, he played a prosecutor in the previous game. He has a shared history with Athena and they both specialize in using psychology as their strength. For those who don't know about psychology, it's a simple matter of "mind games". In other words, it's using mental power and word play in order to get to the truth.
But back to the present, you have to defend Bucky, the 4th generation chef who does deliveries for Whet Soba Shop. Unfortunately, there are many problems you have to face: you're under-prepared because you just got here, Nahyuta the prosecutor is back to prosecute this case yet again, and Bucky's character rides a skateboard, is drunk, and tends to go, to put it politely, vomit off-screen.
Enough of this! It's time to give Bucky a not guilty verdict!
District Court - Courtroom No 4
The judge is shocked that Nahyuta has returned again. Edgeworth is simply busy so Nahyuta has to take over for him. He'll hand the evidence over to be put on the Court Record.
- Backstage Diagram
- Crime Scene Report
- Autospy report: Taifu Toneido died between 2pm and 5pm. He died from suffocation but the reason behind is not known yet.
- Whet Soba Deeds
Simon Blackquill, who is a regular at the Whet Soba Shop, will be the first to testify.
Simon's Testimony: What Simon Saw
What Simon Saw: Cross Examination
You just have to press all the statements. The first statement has "Invitations" and after you finish gathering info, Simon's Statements has also been added to the Court Record.
After being scolded out of the bench, Geiro Toneido will take the stand. Geiro's character is quite unusual. She looks like a clown with balloons around her, even in her dress. She will give her account on the crime scene she's involved in.
Geiru's Testimony: Before The Murder Was Discovered
Before The Murder Was Discovered: Cross Examination
Like before, you have to press all the statements. Simon's Statements will be updated and there will be another statement after you press the 4th statement.
- I was in the yard, but the door was wide open, so I could keep watch on the dressing room.
Present the Backstage Diagram. You want to point to the circular door area near where the dog (Jugemo) is standing and the hallway to dispute that she can't "see" the dressing room she claims to watch.
Nahyuta manages to rally the audience to his side and is driving hard to push you to go home because of your inexperience. Athena tries to counter that having a non-eyewitness testimony is not enough to convict Bucky of murder. But Nahyuta submits the "Crime Scene" evidence, showing a photo of karuta cards with his dying message that reads "Buck Whets No.4". The "Crime Scene Report" has been updated.
It's tough if you've got someone like Nahyuta calling you out because of his driven nature of kicking you out of court, getting the audience to agree that you need a professional defense attorney for this case. Fortunately and for the first time, Prosecutor Simon Blackquill is now your aide and will help you with his professional psychology. After all, he likes going to the Whet Soba Shop and hates to see it closed.
So after a colorful exchange in which Simon calls Nahyuta a "sad monk", Geiru will leave and the next witness will come up to the stand. Uendo Toneido may be the most unusual character in the history of the Ace Attorney series. Put simply, it's very hard to cross examine the traditionally Japanese dressed character with a split personality, as you will see in a few moments. It is now time to dissect his testimony to see where it leads next in this trial.
Uendo's Testimony: Shisho's Dying Message
Shisho's dying message: Cross Examination
Present Taifu's Autospy Report on statement 5. She points out that he hasn't suffered from drowning, as his lungs were empty. So that leads to a question you have to answer.
Question: Taifu's Tonaido's face was thrust into the bowl...
- Before the murder.
- During the murder.
- After the murder.
Choose "After the murder", explaining that the victim doesn't have broth in his lungs. Simon will ask Nahyuta about the kurata cards which you will see in the photo which will be updated to the Court Record. You can look at the photo up close but something's wrong since the broth covers most of the cards.
Question: These cards...
- Were rearranged.
- Contained a contradiction.
- Are kind of a riddle.
Choose "Were rearranged". Now to solve this puzzle, the next question comes about and you have to answer it.
Question: Where exactly should we be looking, Ms. Cykes?
- The pictures on the cards.
- The soba broth stains.
- The size of the cards.
Choose "The soba broth stains". Because of the stains, you have to decipher what the message truly says. When you finish the puzzle, the karuta cards which will be updated, should read "Owen 4th". But what could that mean? Nahruta would want Uendo to stay quiet but Simon is smart enough to get Uendo to open up so we'll get another testimony from him.
Uendo's Testimony: In The Dressing Room
So there's nothing in this testimony, right? Athena senses discord in Uendo. Nahyuta tries to reject the therapy session but Uendo persists! Here's your chance to put Widget to work and unravel his testimony through emotions and evidence alike. After all, Uendo sure is a puzzling character to deal with.
Start by the last statement and choose surprise which is the yellow face icon. Uendo let slip about bumping into something. After the banter between Simon and Nahruta, you get a chance to point on the photo what Uendo bumped into: the TV on the top of the photo.
Mood Matrix: Uendo Toneido
Start by the last statement and choose Surprise. There's a lack of shock and surprise upon seeing Master Toneido dead; but why?...
Choose He knew about his master's death. Uendo will counter by saying that he thought Shisho was just sleeping when he first saw him. Nahyuta will then present evidence to support the witness's claims. Taifu's Note will be added to the Court Record.
Mood Matrix: Uendo Toneido
Pinpoint the Angry Sticker on the fifth statement. Uendo will let slip about bumping into something. It seems irrelevant, but... Point to the TV on the top of the Crime Scene Report photo. It was originally by the door but was dragged to the wall. The discord level will drop to 10%. It will be revealed that the TV is a closed-circuit monitor that shows the stage. Crime Scene Report updated in the Court Record. Athena is at a loss, but thanks to Simon, it's revealed that the body was moved just as the TV was; that's when it's realized to Uendo that Shisho was dead.
Mood Matrix: Uendo Toneido
Pinpoint the Surprised Emotion on the last statement. He's somehow even more surprised than when he saw his late master. Being pushed too far, the discord level is back to 100%. Uendo's emotions are running rampant!
Mood Matrix: Uendo Toneido
Probe on the last statement with the karuta cards being the root cause, which can only mean one thing: "OWEN 4th" means something to Uendo! And with that, the Discord level is back to zero! But that still leaves the question of how so many emotions can be switched around all at once...
Choose that Uendo Has multiple personalities. Considering the emotional rampage, it's possible that Uendo has dissociative identity disorder, which Uendo doesn't even deny. There are three in total: Uendo, Patches, and Kisegawa. Nayuta believes that this only infringes upon the privacy of the witness. Thanks to the knowledge of the three personalities, a certain piece of evidence now makes sense!
Present the Karuta Cards. Note how the original dying message was "OWEN 4th". Knowing about the three personalities, is it possible that there may have been a secret fourth by the name of "Owen?" No one outside the Toneido School knew about Uendo's multiple personalities, so a fourth would not have existed. Furthermore, Nahyuta claims that the accused left the cards to frame the witness, leading the witness to rearrange them. And considering the short time of two to three minutes, there wasn't enough time for Uendo to commit the murder himself. When brought into question about the victim being deceased before his "discovery", Simon's testimony from earlier verifies that the sound of rakugo was heard from within, leaving an indication that he was still alive then, which leaves Uendo with an alibi.
