Can we just talk about how important this piece of official art is?

Okay, so we all know that up until the end of 2016, Christmas meant nothing but pain for Edgeworth. On Christmas Day, 2001, he lost the father he greatly admired, causing his entire life to change in an instant. 

But then came 2016, and Phoenix Wright.

Phoenix, who had chased after him all these years, reappeared in his life to defend him when nobody else would. He shut the DL-6 case once and for all, allowing Miles closure on an event that had haunted him his entire life.

Closure which, as we can see through his chuckling in this picture, helped him to move on.

Now, with the Santa suit in hand, he ponders whether he should put it on outside or not, but it’s clear he intends on joining Wright and company inside.  

So, not only do we see that he’s moved on, but that he’s also warmed up to Wright & Co. - people he initially had little faith in - as has Franziska, who is cheerfully enjoying the festivities along with the others. 

Because of Phoenix Wright, he can now enjoy the Christmas season, as well. 

This is, in my opinion, the most important piece of official art. It shows us that Edgeworth has put his past behind him, and that Christmas isn’t a painful time for him anymore.
