Capcom's doing a little thing for April...'s fool. It looks pretty interesting regardless, though. XD
Found it again, reposting for Meme and anyone else who did not see it yet :3

Check out Dog Ace Attorney here! 8-)

Hmmm. The forum apparently does not support the video url. Check out Dog Ace Attorney here! 8-)

Prediction Post for Dai Gyakuten Saiban

Prediction Post for Dai Gyakuten Saiban

This one dies after or in the middle of the first case. (MASSIVE SPOILER POTENTIAL BECAUSE I AM CHEKHOV)
Spoiler:
RIP Mia Fey 2.0
He's so damn dead that Ryuunosuke takes his hairband and wraps it around his sword in memory of his comrade.
Also he wears his armband on the opposite side as Ryuunosuke... That could be a thing. Also Kazuma has a star on his collar but not Ryuunosuke. Ryuunosuke has a hat with a star, so maybe it winds up there.

ImageImage
Someone gets stabbed to death with a sword.

Ancestor of Charley appears. In fact, I think I might see it in Ryuunosuke's attic room.

Baroque Bangieks is an Edgeworth ancestor. The hair is similar, sort of like how Ryuunosuke Naruhodou has a jaggy hairline (/\/\/\/\) like Phoenix Wright.
Spoiler:
ImageImage
ImageImage
Not to mention Baroque has the cravat version alpha. And the armwave bow. Image
I can't help but notice Baroque's face looks a lot like Kazuma's if you slicked the hair back and greyed it. Are they maybe related?
(His clocktower office has suits of armor that look a heck of a lot like the ones from Gant/Lana's office in Rise from the Ashes. Those suits are bad news.)
That slash across his face is relevent to a case. Maybe his daddy got killed by....

...Moriarty as the final boss. (If we are lucky we get a sniper Moran too. And a Jack the Ripper, just because.)

Prof Layton lookalike lurks in background

More as I feel like it.

i think the attorney will object to a lie and then present a thing that makes everyone do wacky animations

also the last case will have a lot of twists

Name Guesses for characters (All in Western order - Given Family)

Apparently a tradition for AA fans to do this. I never knew. -Quick Note: I'm not buying the theories saying the Japan half will be set in Japanifornia and that Japanese characters with get anglicized names.


Honosuke Raito for Ryūnosuke Naruhodō - - He keeps a Japanese sounding name because he is obviously Japanese. Honoo (Hono for our western tastes) is for "fire" and nosuke is for the "herald of". He's the fire herald, and also a reference to the fire phoenix Houou. As a translation benefit, if any unavoidably draconic puns must be made, they can reference fire breathing. Raito is Wright backromanized. When the ancestor naturalized, he switched his name to an English-natural spelling like many immigrants do.

Ichi Ouchi for Taketsuchi Auchi - Ouchi makes the pun a little more obvious and encourages English speakers to pronounce it right. Ichi sounds like "itchy" which in the context of an ouchy is unpleasant sounding - a good feeling to capture for Payne and his ilk. Ichi also means "one", which makes translating Auchi's inevitable "I'm the best" boasts all that much easier.

Susa Mikotoba for Susato Mikotoba - It's a Japanese name. The given name drops the -to so it sounds a bit more feminine to western ears. Susa can pick up Susie or Susan as a nickname for English benefit. "Miko" is a fairly recognizable Japanese word (a priestess) and "Mikotoba" is fairly easy to say. The family name is unlikely to be used often since she is an assistant so it doesn't matter if it is unfamiliar.

Kaze Asōgi for Kazuma Asōgi - This guy is tough because he will need a Japanese name. He might as well keep the original (A reference to teamwork and one truth), but I think some things can be done to make the breeze motif come out more. English-speakers, and especially Americans, are somewhat likely to know the word kaze (wind) from the suicide pilots' kamikaze (divine wind)..

Bram Valkyr for Baroque Bangieks - This is a hard one because Shu declined to name the references. Bram is from Bram Stoker, author of Dracula, since I'm getting a pretty strong vampire vibe from Baroque. I want the given name to start with a B like the Japanese counterpart. The family name needs to reference something to do with psychopomps or the underword to complete the prosecutor's theme. After drawing many blanks, I picked Valkyr, an obvious reference to Valkyries. It covers ferrying off the fallen, fighting, and flying (to reference the shadowy bird wings we saw in his intro). It also starts with a V like the Japanese counterpart (V/B being a thing in Japanese). "Prosecutor Valkyr" sounds awesome enough.

Let's see how they'll do the trials then... I hope it won't stuff 3 games into 24 episodes because I have a feeling they'll want to write in Godot.
Well I guess they could skip most trials and add in AO material depending on what they want from this adaptation...

I agree that 24 episodes seems too short to cram in the first three games, but I feel like it might overstretch the first game too to pull it over 24 episodes... depends how much original material they want to put in, I guess, and everything to do with DL-6 alone could actually fill quite a lot of episodes.
