As announced at TGS, mystery writer Van Madoy will write an all-original Ace Attorney story, Gyakuten Saiban - Jikan Ryokosha no Gyakuten (Ace Attorney - Turnabout of the Time Traveller) to be serialized in Hayakawa's Mystery Magazine, starting in the March 2017 issue (goes on sale in January 2017). A special interview between him and Takumi will be published in the January 2017 issue (goes on sale November 2016).

He also left a comment on the official site:

Quote:
Hello, I'm Van Madoy. I will be writing a novelization of Ace Attorney. In terms of chronology, this story is set during the first game, but it is an original story and because it's such a special ocassion, I hope the readers will enjoy this slightly different idea. Please look forward to Turnabout of the Time Traveller.


On his Twitter account, Madoy mentions that timewise, it's like an Episode 2.5 of the first game, so very early in the series.

Van Madoy debuted with Marutamachi Revoir, a young adult mystery novel and the first in the Revoir series which is about... a private trial in the city of Kyoto. Besides writing his own original mystery stories, he has also started doing novelizations as of late.

Neat. Interesting that it seems to have a very similar theme to the new DLC case...

Hopefully it'll be released as a standalone book which will also be released in kindle format

I am not sure whether it's a full-length novel or just a short story, at the moment. It says "novelization", but it does not mean the same in Japanese as in English. For example, bot Kuroda's Turnabout Bridge and Takase's Turnabout Idol are called "novelizations" in Japanese, but only Idol is a full-length novel, and both are actually completely original stories (and not 'novelizations' of an existing story).

Kuroda's story was also serialized across two issues of IN-POCKET, and that story was never made available in any collection/reprint.

Madoy mostly writes serialized short stories (for short story collections) now, or direct-to-book original novelizations, so I have the feeling it'll be a short story, but again, not 100% sure.

I will probably be following this release by the way. If it's a novel-length story, I might wait for a standalone release, but if it's just two or three issues, I'll definitely be just picking up the individual magazines (Turnabout Bridge was serialized over two issues for example). I'll definitely pick up the interview issue.

Wondering whether Nick will appear in the Gathering of the Twin Dragons, the underground Kyoto courtroom from Madoy's novels? :D I mean, the developers of AA6 eventually not to use that idea, so there's a perfect chance for Madoy to use Phoenix in his own unique courtroom setting where *everyone* uses fake evidence and bluff their ways to victory.

Unlike most people working on the franchise, Van Madoy spends a lot of time tweeting on everything, occassionally even about his job as a writer. A couple of tweets today seem to suggest that progress on Turnabout of the Time Traveller isn't going as fast as he hoped (don't worry, he tweets like this all the time).

I still can't believe he's writing the story: it was just a few years ago when we were talking Professor Layton VS Ace Attorney at the daily 'bookclub' of our university club... Now I think about it, his pen name is actually quite Ace Attorney-esque: it's simply a combination of the names of two popular restaurants near the university...
