Phoenix Wright Movie Trailer is Surprisingly Loyal
When it was announced that a movie was being made based on the Phoenix Wright game, most people completely dismissed it. Rightfully so, the game was a cult hit and extremely quirky. While games like Assassin’s Creed, Mass Effect, and Halo are all cinematic games that may work in movie form, a movie based on a game about a lawyer doesn’t seem like the best source material.
Yet if you’ve played the game, watching the visuals of the trailer will reveal some extremely accurate depictions of the game. It’s a minute and a half of Japanese that I don’t understand, but it’s pretty clear at what point he shouts his trademark “Objection!” and many of the scenes shown in the movie can be spotted in the game. Maybe it won’t be so bad after all.
