Walked into my Gamestop today to do my monthly check on and Edgeworth 3 release date and got some pretty huge news.
The bad news: -Spirit Trick failed in the USA as bad or worse than it did in Japan -The last Layton game did not do well either
So Edgeworth 2 may not come over the pond and Layton/Wright is in the same boat.
The good news: The dude who directed the batshit insane progeny of Kurosawa samurai films, 13 Assassins, is making a live action Phoenix Wright. I am tickled pink and horrified at the same time.
Miike, he of Ichi the Killer fame, can be funny when he's not shocking the hell out of you so this may be a marriage made in heaven. One of those moments when two things that should not meet do so and it turns out phenomenal.
Most importantly, this may be the first time in history that I can envision a scenario where I, KJames, and Cerebus all end up running to a midnight festival showing of this film psyched as hell.
I'm not alone in being psyched as hell here am I? Domestic distribution is a long shot but in an age where Live Action Moyashimon can get on Hulu, surely our boy Nick can too.

Boo. Everyone should play and love the Layton games. A true gentleman leaves no puzzle unsolved, even if the ending of the story kinda makes you feel like you got kicked.

I'd watch this. Though I wish I was opposed to the idea so I could be all like OBJECTION! in all caps. But I'm not the hugest Phoenix Wright fan so I don't have that "oh no, they will ruin it" feeling.
I saw this last night, based on the life of Ip Man, the martial artist who lived through World War 2 and went on to teach Bruce Lee. Part of it was stylized action, part more subtle "art house" style storytelling.
