You got a source for that? Not that I don't believe it, but it's the first time I'm hearing this and it's really too bad.He still works at capcom but he's gone on record saying he doesn't want to work on the main series anymore and that he doesn't exactly approve of how Yamazaki handled the AA4 storyline.
To this day I still can't understand how AJ had a great new cast with characters and dynamics that were pretty different from the OT, and then they messed it all up for the sake of fanservice and escalating stakes. It's actually kind of beautiful in its own way.If I'm remembering my trivia right he said he considers the story of Phoenix wright over with AA3, AA4 was designed to lay the groundwork for the writer who would take over after him so he made Apollo, Klavier and Trucy the new protagonists for that game so the new writer wouldn't be bound by Phoenix and friends.
I guess he didn't like how Yamazaki ultimately decided to throw Trucy and klavier off to the side.
That might explain why the cast of Dai Gyakuten Saiban feels like he repurposed the cast of Apollo justice. Sherlock feels like he's supposed to be Klavier's ancestor.
