Phoenix Wright to Go Live as a Musical Comedy Next Month in Japan

AAAaaaarghhh is there no more respect for anything these days? Seriously, WTF is going on this year? We’re getting the horrible Dragon Ball movie adaptation… and now a musical comedy adaption of the NDS video game Phoenix Wright.

It will be performed by a Takarazuka group, infamous but OH SO popular among retired Japanese ladies. Takarazuka is a troupe of actresses who play both male and female roles in musicals (in the traditional Kabuki men perform both roles).

Just the idea over-made-up women wannabe men scare the crap out of me. I won’t be able to play Phoenix Right on my DSi now without thinking of them.

    It’s Phoenix Wright, not Phoenix Right.
    Dooh, what’s got into you today. First you were bitching about the slow Atom Dual Core on Vaio P while the actual cpu is only single core. And now …

  • Daimaou

    Sorry mate, please check AKiba again but the Vaio P IS DUAL CORE !!!! Unless VIsta is mistaken, we clearly see 2 CPU !

    But for Phoenix… Right… you are wright
