Phoenix Wright Puzzle Game Has Players Match Gems For A Not Guilty Verdict

By Spencer . March 1, 2013 . 5:00pm

imageCapcom made a quirky puzzle game that’s essentially Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney meets Bejeweled. Turnabout Puzzle: Substitution Turnabout is a gem matching game and when you connect same colored gems you shift the judge’s verdict from guilty to innocent. Match more than five gems and you earn an extra turn. Phoenix Wright can also use evidence items to quickly tilt the meter in his favor.


Turnabout Puzzle: Substitution Turnabout has the same over the top finger pointing sprites and Edgeworth’s shocked expression from the GBA/DS games. Sure, it’s a rehash, but it’s one of Capcom’s clever ideas. Too bad it hasn’t been localized or ported to smartphones. Turnabout Puzzle: Substitution Turnabout is a feature phone game in Japan.

    “Feature Phone”?

    Shit, this looked halfway interesting…-.-;

  • Sneferie

    Ahhh!! Put this on the eShop!! Even if it was localized for mobile, I only have a dumb texting phone ;-;

  • Jahred Down

    I’m still waiting for the iOS HD version of 1, 2 & 3. *Sigh* Capcom……

    • Peace Legacy

      This game is made by Capcom of Japan, whereas the ridiculous delay of AA iOS HD is ‘possibly’ due to Capcom of… other countries

  • I’ll admit. This looks kinda cool.

  • Zonic505

    Ya know, this looks kind of decent. I could see this working as an eShop or PSN download for handhelds. I’d probably buy this for the right price.

  • Sounds very amusing.

  • xzeldax3

    I need this game in my life!

  • Oh no, I have a really bad Bejeweled addiction to the point where I start seeing gems when I close my eyes….I can only imagine how worse it would get adding Phoenix to the mix!

    I WANT IT. I really hope it gets an iOS version or something I can buy without too much hassle haha.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    This makes me remember of Street Fighter Puzzle Gem lol.^_^ And that game is one of my favorite puzzle game too.^_^
    Capcom, at release this on eShop here, i am surely going to get this one.^_^

  • I hate mobile gaming.

    … Buuut at least it’s not a card game rehashing diferent kind of artworks from the series *looks at Square-Enix* and I like me some puzzle every once in a while + Super Puzzle Fighter II memories so, well done Capcom! If I had a iOs I’d get it.

    Hmm… this actually looks pretty cool in my opinion. I like the occassional puzzle game (Bejeweled and Magic Match being two of the games of that genre that I enjoyed) and I recently became fascinated with the Phoenix Wright games so I do believe those two factors combined would overrule (lol) my dislike of mobile games in this case (lol times 2) xD

  • Göran Isacson

    … Huh. This I can actually dig. I am not a fan of cardgames, but I liked Super Puzzle Fighter Turbo and since this looks to be that game only with Phoenix Wright characters… well, I could see myself enjoying this.
