It can be debated that video game adaptations are a lost cause. It might be due to all the changes that have had to be made. It might be because the directors willing to lead the project aren’t always the best. It might be because the original game wasn’t a great game to begin with. However, in February 11th of 2011, a bright star lit in the Land of the Rising Sun. An adaptation of an unsuspecting, yet loved game franchise was released. In Japan it is known as Gyakuten Saiban, and in the West known as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.
