Ace Attorney: Justice for All - 2002 Developer Interviews Long before it was re-released on the DS in the west, Ace Attorney (or Gyakuten Saiban) was a critical hit in Japan on the GBA. These two interviews go over the influences of the series and the differences between the first and second games. The second interview betwen Hideo Kojima and Shinji Mikami is more lighthearted, and features Kojima’s effusive praise for the series.
