Objection! A Movie About Video Game “Phoenix Wright”. Objection!

Written by Shawn Lotte November 15, 2011

You read right sports fans, there is a movie coming from Japan about the cult hit video game series Phoenix Wright. If you don’t know the series it’s pretty simple: made for the Gameboy Advance back in the early 2000s, this is a courtroom simulation game with an over-the-top story and fun game play mechanics.

You play the hero Phoenix Wright as you solve various cases that all connect into one big case towards the end. The game was later ported to North America in 2005 on the DS and has spawned 6 sequels. Additionally, there is an amusement park attraction in Japan, he is appearing this month in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and crazy devoted fans who cosplay.

The movie is being directed by Takashi Miike who is most famous for Audition, Ichi the Killer, and recently 13 Assassins. It’s hard to say if this film will be as good as his previous work. Only time will tell. Phoenix Wright THE MOVIE will be released in February of next year in Japan, with an unknown release date for North America.

Here is the Trailer:

Thanks to Twitchfilm.com for the heads up.
