The long awaited anime series of Capcom's hit adventure game Gyakuten Saiban (Phoenix Wright) finally gets a date. According to its official site, the show will broadcast on nationwide TV in Japan starting April 2 on the YTV network.

Official site:

For what's become rare with anime shows in Japan, Gyakuten Saiban will air at primetime 5:30pm on Saturdays rather than the affordable midnight slots. Animation studio A1-Pictures, known for various hits including Sword Art Online, Working!, and Gate, will be handling the project.

From what's been revealed so far, the anime seems to follow protagonist Ryuichi Naruhodou's adventures from the game's first installment.

Ryuichi Naruhodou
Yuki Kaji (Undernight Inbirth's Seto, Jojo: AOH's Johnny Joestar).
Mayoi Ayasato
Aoi Yuki (Blazblue's Platinum the Trinity, Madoka Magica's Kaname Madoka)
Reiji Mitsurugi
Masashi Tamaki (Mostly minor voiceovers for western films)
Chihiro Ayasato
Chie Nakamura (Naruto's Sakura)
Keisuke Itonokogiri
Masami Iwasaki (Hetalia's Norway, Read or Die's Drake Anderson)
Masasi Yahari
Toru Nara (SF4's T.Hawk, 2015 Jojo anime PartIII's Nukesaku)

2016 may be the year for Gyakuten Saibai. Aside from its 6th iteration slated during the year, a pachinko release was also recently announced.
