Phoenix Wright Movie is Official - No Objections!

Phoenix Wright Movie is Official - No Objections! on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

That's right Ace Attorney fans, a live action movie featuring Capcom's best defence attorney and prosecutor is hitting the big screen. The much-loved series was rumoured to be the latest project by director Takashi Miike of Crows Zero and Thirteen Assassins fame. It's now officially confirmed, and will be hitting Japanese cinemas in Spring next year. A localised edition has yet to be announced, but with the series having worldwide appeal expect at the very least fan-based subtitles.

Phoenix Wright will be played by Hiroki Narimiya, joined by Takumi Saito as Miles Edgeworth and assisted by adorable spirit medium Maya, cast as Mirei Kiritani.

Update: Capcom have released a very blurry teaser image from behind the scenes of the Ace Attorney movie, showing off the courtroom.

What do you think of the cast selection? What parts of the Phoenix Wright story would you like covered - or should it be a completely new adventure?

The faces themselves, I have nothing against. But they better have the right haircut (especially Phoenix), and the right outfit.

i dont think those are pics of them in custom yet dude, just pictures of them in general.

anyway YEAAAAAHH omg omg i cant waiiiitt!

Takeshi Miike is directing it? Jaysus, I can only imagine how sick the involved case is going to be...

I hope this actually gets released over here! Smilie

Awesomesauce! I hope they cover the entire Feenie -> Godot arc, that would be awesome! If not, spread over 2 or 3 movies. Can't wait!

Casting isn't too bad either. Both Edgeworth and Maya look convincing, though Phoenix a little odd!

Exciting! It's such a great movie opportunity - I mean, they even had a musical version of this, right?

Yes, really want to see Godot and Mia in there, but might be erm... a little tricky!

The characters look quite close without the costuming and everything, so good news on that front!


I have no objection Smilie

Hiroki Narimiya was also Tanimura in Yakuza 4.

Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. Sucky game = sucky movie.

I'll certainly be waiting for this one. Even if it doesn't get released here, I'd be more than willing to watch it with English subs. Smilie

I could care less if the actors don't look exactly like the characters; as long as they're good at acting I'll be happy!

Awesome. Can't wait for this.

I'd much prefer an anime.

The manga books were entertaining, but not enough.
