It’s unlikely we’ll ever have an English-language action movie detailing the exploits of Phoenix and his friends, but we can dream… and that dream would mean these fan-made posters being displayed in cinemas around the world .
Viet artist “Anh” Cao first designed an imagined poster for the first Ace Attorney game in 2020, and followed it up two years later with a design for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice For All.
