Capcom has released the
first image from its upcoming Ace Attorney movie adaptation. The sole pic accompanies the launch
of a Japanese-language promo site, with a release date set and the promise of a
trailer soon. “But it's one image! One measly little picture!” Yes, just one
picture of a live-action movie, based on a Capcom game, and looking just fine.
Do you realize how long that's taken?
We'll spare you the litany of woeful joypad-to-celluloid
translations afforded to every Capcom franchise so far: you're reading a
videogames website on the Internet, so you know all about how Jean-Claude Van
Damme is no Guile and the Resident Evil movies are poor substitutes. Just enjoy
this image of Hiroki Narimiya Objection!-ing up a storm while you wait for the
trailer, which will launch Nov 5 ahead of the film's Feb 11 Japanese release.
With the international popularity of director Miike Takashi – not to mention
Ace Attorney itself – we’d bet English-speaking fans should be assured of a
translation not too long after.
