Over on the Anime News Network site, they posted up a synopsis so fans know what to expect. One of the episodes from the original game will form the basis of the play which involves Phoenix and Maya attending a performance from Tonosaman (The Steel Samurai) when an accident occurs causing the stage to catch on fire. A suspect is named in Will Powers however he won’t engage the services of an attorney which is when Phoenix jumps into the action.
