Phoenix Wright

Umvc3 phoenixwright face.jpg

The head of the Wright & Co. Law Offices, which formerly belonged to his long-time mentor Mia Fey (now deceased), Phoenix Wright is perhaps best known for his immense amount of luck and determination. Nick is willing to go to any lengths to find the right evidence to prove his clients' innocence, and it always turns out well for them in the end. With his mentor's little sister Maya and her cousin Pearl around to assist him, Wright has managed to defeat many prosecutors, including the infamours "Demon Prosecutor" Manfred von Karma, his daughter Franziska, the mysterious Godot, and his former childhood friend turned greatest rival Miles Edgeworth. Wright maintained a stable career, until one fateful day that would spark a series of tragedies when he met two men by the names of Zak Gramarye and Kristoph Gavin...


In a nutshell The allegorical lawyer is here, and he brings with him the strangest move set and most unique mechanics in UMVC3. Phoenix Wright must spend his time gathering evidence to use against the opponent -- which becomes his projectile arsenal -- and must be gathered to unlock his Turnabout Mode. In this Mode, he becomes one of the most powerful characters in the game for a small amount of time. During this mode, he also gains arguably the best Hyper in the game, an instantaneous fullscreen Hyper that deals 600k damage! If you love comedy and gambling on high-risk / high reward scenarios, look no further than Phoenix Wright.

NOTE - A note about Questioning, Air Questioning, Cross-Examination, Air Cross-Examination, Pursuit, and Air
Pursuit: these moves build up an invisible "stun meter" whenever it connects against an opponent, hit or blocked.
As long as the opponent avoids getting hit by or blocking another one of these attacks, the stun meter begins to
slowly drain. If one of the above 6 moves hits the opponent and the stun meter fills up, they will go into the Dzzy.png
animation. However, if the opponent blocks one of the 6 moves and the stun meter fills up, the meter resets to
zero and you have to start all over again and the opponent escapes the Dzzy.png .

Strategy

Tips and Tricks

  • In Investigation Mode, Slip-up (F.png +M.png ) is an overhead Hard Knockdown that can be canceled into any move. Use this to surprise your opponent and get one or two Evidence searches.
  • In Investigation Mode Maya (M.png ) can cross up the opponent if you anticipate a forward roll, some situations where this could be used are after an overhead collect two evidence then call Maya or after an air combo collect one evidence then call Maya.
  • The Order in the Court Hyper, in addition to return Phoenix Wright to Investigation Mode, automatically erases all Bad Evidence. In a pinch, you can search for three items, switch to Trial Mode and play keep-away with your Good Evidence, and then use this Hyper to dig for the last piece of Good Evidence you need, without manually throwing away the Bad Evidence.
  • In Turnabout Mode, all of Phoenix Wright's assists become almost entirely invincible. Abuse them!
  • In Turnabout Mode, not only is your evidence more powerful, but you can also use two in a row in a rapid-fire fashion. Abuse these keepaway tools, as they can do amazing chip damage against a player who is intent on blocking your Turnabout Mode H.png attacks.
  • In Turnabout Mode, your only low-hitting attack is crouching L.png . Keep this in mind when selecting assists or choosing your approach, as low assists can mitigate this problem and create unblockables with jumping H.png , or if your opponent is blocking everything and knows that crouching H.png cannot hit low, dashing in with a crouching L.png can sometimes trick the opponent.
  • In X-Factor levels 2 and 3, Phoenix Wright in Turnabout Mode has an X-Factor loop / infinite with crouching H.png . Keep this in mind if your Turnabout Phoenix Wright doesn't have 3 meters, or really needs to save the meter.
  • After knocking one opponent out, the duration waiting for the next character to come in gives you enough time to search for two pieces of evidence easily, and a third or more depending on Assists and use of Maya. Defeat an enemy with Ace Attorney, then search enough to be ready for Turnabout again!
  • As of the 12/19/2011 patch, Wright's Press the Witness and Paperwork assists, when in Turnabout Mode, are no longer fully invincible when called. Keep this in mind and use them with care.

Notes

  • After the third "Hold it!" in Trial mode , the oponent should be in a stunned state, allow the oponent to fall to the ground and continue the combo. This applies on the second, third and fourth trial mode combo.
  • To do trial mode combos number 3 and 4, you need to have done "press the witness" (F.png+H.png) Once before and twice before respectively. If you lose track of how many times you've done it, you can end the combo after the first air series.
  • "Bridge to the Turnabout" can be combo'd into illumination. (H.png, H.png, F.png+H.png)
