The Ace Attorney series is a series of interactive fiction games made by Capcom for the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, and Nintendo 3DS. Set in the near future, in a fictionalized Los Angeles, CA, USA (an unnamed city in Japan in the Japanese version), the series follows Phoenix Wright (or, occasionally, other attorneys, depending on the game), as they investigate crime scenes and go through trials.
The series spans multiple games between the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii(ware), Microsoft Windows, and iOS. In addition, a theatrical film adaptation was made in 2012, and an anime adaptation began airing in 2016.
In YouTube Poop, sprites and backgrounds are sometimes used to make trials for various YouTube Poop characters.
