Wow putting this on CR but not Turnabout Tennis smh.

At any rate, this is a case that I must simply get to as soon as I'm able to. The PLvsAA connection makes it all the more intriguing as well!

Double post but I actually finished this case today. Overall, very good case. I loved the PLvsAA setting and how it was made use of here, so that was pretty well done. The mystery and trial flow was excellent as expected and I loved putting it together slowly. Truly an enjoyable experience here and I do recommend it.

Spoiler: Details
I really had no idea where this took place in the game itself but eventually I just accepted this as its own thing, which helped me like it a lot more. Though I'm still confused on it a bit.

In terms of criticisms I don't think Hyde and Edgeworth really fit well into the case well at all and they stuck out like a sore thumb. Hyde's design is just weird and I feel like Edgeworth would maybe protest more to how justice is served here. Everything else worked like a charm though. I love how the second murder was committed especially.

I really liked the culprit's identity here though. I was almost disappointed that it was so obviously Vanessa, especially by the end of the final investigation where she just tried to kill him. So seeing her being just an accomplice was pretty great. I loved how Pilfnam was just a murderer instead of a witch, it was really cool how he did it without needing to use magic. I actually thought Victor did it since he had the key for so long so oops. But yeah he was pretty great and catching him was even better. I guess his motive being revealed post trial and all was pretty weak, and I was also sort of expecting more detail on that when it turned out to be such a side thing in the end. Also thought Victor and Victoria had some weird relation but I guess that was just a coincidence?

Also Victoria's courtroom background sprite thing was beautiful, 10/10.
