I've never been so taken aback by the level of dedication present in a game-to-movie adaptation. The trailer for the Ace Attorney film just is the first Ace Attorney game. Giant red afros on Japanese ladies, full body possession, foggy murders on boats; it's all here. There are even evidence-tossing attacks. The movie looks completely perfect.
I should have expected no less from the great Takashi Miike, part time No More Heroes 2 character and director of Audition, Yatterman, Yakuza, and countless other modern surrealist classics. It's clear that Miike loves his source material, which is a rarity these days when it comes to the directors of videogame movies.
If this film does well, I hope that we'll see more literal game-to-movie adaptations in its wake. Blaster Master, Katamari Damacy, and Super Meat Boy immediately come to mind. How about you? Do you like your game-to-film adaptations softened for the silver screen, or do you take them hard and literal like do?
