Series creator Shuu Takumi's been chatting with director Takashi Miike and they have plans for a follow up to the next big screen adaptation.
In an interview with Famitsu about the status of the Professor Layton/Phoenix Wright crossover title being developed by Level-5 (the big news: it's almost done), Miike and Takumi briefly laid out some of their ideas for what they'd like to do in a potential Ace Attorney 2.
Having fairly faithfully reproduced the first game in its entirety with Ace Attorney, Miike proposed moving away from a direct adaptation of the second game and doing something that gamers hadn't seen before.
Miike currently has two films for 2012, The Legend of Love & Sincerity and Lesson of the Evil, so any new production will probably have to wait until sometime next year or beyond, even for the wildly prolific filmmaker who's directed nearly 90 productions across film and TV in the last 20 years.
Ace Attorney made its rounds through the festival circuit earlier this year but still doesn't have a domestic home video or theatrical release in place for here in the United States.
