A few months ago, we mentioned a rumor about Takashi Miike (Ichi the Killer) expressing interest in directing a film adaptation of the popular Phoenix Wright video game series. Today, Capcom Europe has released the first official still from the film. The image, which you can see in the gallery below, depicts Hiroki Narimiya as the titular lawyer. A quick search on the internets also shows that he’ll be playing the voice of Phoenix Wright in the upcoming Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney 3DS game. Talk about a marketing ploy, eh?
What do you guys think of the film so far? For more on Takashi Miike, you can read Xander’s review of Hara-Kiri: The Death of a Samurai here.[via Capcom Europe]
