Video Game Review: Turnabout Reclaimed, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies

Details: Takes about six hours to beat according to More information can be found at

Score: 6/10

Turnabout Reclaimed is downloadable content and an additional case that takes place sometime during the events of the main story. In this case, Phoenix Wright must defend a killer whale in a murder case.

Phoenix Wright has just opened up his legal offices again when a girl walks in and asks him to defend a killer whale from murder charges. Now, Wright must gather all his wits as he figures out how to defend a whale in a human court of law.

The story is about as nutty and as anime as it sounds. I won’t spoil anything, but there are plenty of plot twists.

As a narrative heavy game, presentation is important. The presentation here is good. They added a few hand drawn anime cut scenes as well as more in game animations for each character in the story.

Overall, if you like visual novels, you will enjoy this. My biggest complaint with this DLC is with the genre, not this game specifically. I find visual novels mostly boring, especially if they don’t have voice acting as this game doesn’t. With that said, I still managed to get through this game, which says a lot about how good it is despite its genre.
