Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Anime Coming in 2016
At this year's Tokyo Game Show, Capcom have been showing off the latest version of the game Ace Attorney 6 for the Nintendo 3DS. However they also used the occasion to announce another exciting bit of news for fans- that Ace Attorney is getting an anime TV series that will air in Japan April 2016.
The series has always largely been based on interactive anime-style sequences, to the degree that it feels like an anime already. The most surprising thing then, is that it's taken so long for this to happen. It's got a cast of popular characters and a ready and willing fanbase. It also has a concept that will be a natural fit for television.
At the same time, it should be pretty unusual- after all, how many animated court-room dramas can you think of? Exactly. As long as it translates the game's visuals accurately, and keep the iconic imagery, then we certainly have no OBJECTION to this news.
No more details have been announced at this time.
