Video gaming's most popular defense attorney will hit Japanese screens next year.

A movie based on the Ace Attorney franchise is in production for Japanese cinemas, Capcom announced today.

Actor Hiroki Narimiya will be playing the role of Phoenix Wright, Takumi Saito will play the role of Miles Edgeworth, Phoenix's prosecutor rival, and Mirei Kiritani will be playing the role of Maya Fey. No other characters from the series or actors have been announced.

The Ace Attorney movie is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2012, and will be distributed by Toho Inc. Other Capcom movies in the works include another computer-generated Resident Evil film, Damnation, and an animated film based off of their Sengoku BASARA series.

Who wants to guess the possibilities of this movie never going anywhere outside Japan!

I has a higher chance than you think. There are a few localization companies that release Japanese films. They release them quietly, but there is a dedicated audience for Asian cinema that buy them. Also, Takashi Miike is a director with enough western followers that I think this Phoenix Wright film has a high chance of getting an English version one way or the other.

Perfect timing, consider I just finally picked up and nearly beat Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. Here's hoping for some nice fan subs.
