Ace Attorney will adapt Capcom’s video game series of the same name. The series first hit the Game Boy Advance in 2001 as a Japan exclusive. The west would receive the title four years later, after it was ported to Nintendo’s DS handheld. The series spawned a 2006 manga series, as well as a 2012 film by director Takashi Miike.
