'Ace Attorney' returns to the stage in 2013 with all-female acting troupe

Ace Attorney comes to the stage again, Capcom announces.

Prosecutor Miles Edgeworth: Ace Attorney 3 will be presented for the stage by the all-female Takarazuka Revue come January 2013, Capcom announced today.

This marks the third Pheonix Wright stage play presented by the Takarazuka Revue, who previously presented Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 2 in 2009 to a total attendance of 50,000.

The Takarazuka Cosmos Troupe is set to perform the show, with Kei Suzuki both writing the script and staging. The show will star Hiro Yumi, who previously played the role of the rival in the previous productions. Unlike the other two shows, Ace Attorney 3 is said to be completely different in narrative and feature the activities of Miles Edgeworth.

The Japan-only production will take place at the Theater Drama City, Umeda Arts Theater in Osaka from January 9th to January 17th of next year, followed by a performance at the Nippon Seinen-kan Hall in Tokyo from January 23rd to January 28th.

The first game in the series was released to Japan in October 2001, and since the courtroom battle series shipped over 4.3 million units worldwide as of June 30th 2012.
