The staff for the upcoming Gyakuten Saiban 2: Saraba Gyakuten (Turnabout Trial 2: Farewell, My Turnabout) stage play unveiled photographs of the cast in costume on Tuesday.
The stage play stars:

Akihiro Hayashi as Masashi Yahari (Larry Butz)
Ryūko Isogai as Keisuke Itonokogiri (Dick Gumshoe)

Takuma Wada, Karin Ogino, Akihiro Hayashi, and Ryūko Isogai all reprise their roles from the first Gyakuten Saiban stage play. The first stage play premiered in Tokyo on July 31, 2013.
The new play is based on the second game in the Gyakuten Saiban series, Gyakuten Saiban 2 (released in North America as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice For All); mainly its fourth episode. In the episode's original story, a television show actor is murdered at a hotel, while a man who calls himself De Killer kidnaps Maya and demands the acquittal of the murder suspect in exchange for Maya's freedom.
The Phoenix Wright games put players in the role of Phoenix Wright, and tasks them with solving cases and winning court trials by presenting evidence and cross-examining witnesses.
The play opened last Wednesday at the Haiyu-za Gekijo in Roppongi, Tokyo, and will continue to run every day until May 10.
