In the game, you play as Phoenix Wright, the rookie defense lawyer new to the scene with the wildest cross-examination skills in town. Prove your seemingly guilty client's innocence, no matter how dire the circumstances through five intriguing cases. Collect evidence, survey crime scenes, weed through inconsistent testimonies, and overcome corrupt agendas to ensure that justice prevails. New to the iPhone version is a new flick interface that takes full advantage of the platform’s touch screen. Now players can now manipulate, reference and organize evidence with a flick of the finger.
If you insert Gyakuten Saiban (GBA) in the GBA slot when you turn on "Gyakuten Saiban: Yomigaeru Gyakuten" you can skip straight to Episode 5 (Yomigaeru Gyakuten) without having to finish Episode 4.
During the credits after completing Case 5, the touch screen will show fingerprint powder being applied and blown away to reveal the credits. After every few screens of credits, a dialogue scene takes place with a character from the game. During these scenes, tap the touch screen as though applying fingerprint powder to it, and blow it off (just like in the actual game) to reveal a hidden drawing of the character that is on the top screen.
