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.

This will be a very interesting story. :)

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...

The first installment of this story has also been published in the Mystery Magazine released this week (March issue), by the way. I have a copy on order, but I'm having it shipped with some other to-be-released stuff, so I will read it later.

Is there any way for the rest of the world to access this? Scans, transcriptions, anything? Import even?

EDIT: I think a better question would be... Is there any way us non-japanese fans can read it? ;_;

There have been manga scanlations in the past,plus Idol got a fanslation recently. So maybe there will be.

Strange that it wasn't reported here on CR then.

What? The manga scanlation or the Idol fanslation?

Post subject:  Re: New story: Turnabout of the Time Traveller.

I read the first installment today. This story is serialized in Mystery Magazine, a literary magazine on mystery fiction, so the writing style is much closer to "normal" literature compared to the easy writing of Turnabout Airport (which is a novel published in a children's novels label). The story is set in 2001 and is about ... a time traveller. Yuko, a student at Yumei (Ivy) University whose dream is to invent a time machine, becomes the assistant of Kota Kitamita, a man claiming to be indeed a time traveller: he has stranded in 2001 and needs Yuko's help to fix his machine to get back to the future, to 2016. Some months pass as they work on the machine, when one day, Kota is assaulted in their lab, and Yuko gets knocked out by the assailant. When she wakes up, she discovers that 1) Kitamita is dead and that 2) the laboratory was locked from the inside. Yuko unlocks the door to let the police waiting outside inside, but she is arrested at once for the murder.

Her defense attorney is Gregory Edgeworth, who now has to prove his client was not the murderer of a time traveller, but this is no easy task, as it appears that the prosecutor in charge of this case is a certain von Karma.

The story doesn't really feel a lot like Ace Attorney at the moment, save for the characters and setting, though this is partly because we aren't in a courtroom yet, and also partly because the writing style is more subdued and serious (because this is serialized in Mystery Magazine, and is more meant to promote the series to the general mystery-reading public). Curious to see how this story will unfold.

Von Karma is the prosecutor? I wonder how he'll get out of this without breaking canon.

Post subject:  Re: New story: Turnabout of the Time Traveller.

I was going to suggest that von Karma handed the case over to his daughter, but that's a decade too early.

Post subject:  Re: New story: Turnabout of the Time Traveller.

Well, cases like 3-4 and GK1-4 also presented situations that initially appear to go against previously established canon, so I'm expecting something will happen.

Wow that's actually really interesting. I wonder how they will handle this. Will it be like a full blown novel of a 100 pages or so? (Can't see it being any more), or will it actually be just a short story about the trial?

I'm betting it's Manfred's other child whose daughter has a dog named Phoenix.

And I thought Oldbag traveling through time was ridiculous. This is fanfic-level of weirdness. Hope it comes out better than most.

Not clear at the moment, as there is no information available about how many issues this story will run. It will probably run for at least three installments, as the first installment was indeed called "Installment 1" (if there were only two installments, the practice in Japan is to call it "first half" and "second half"). So at any rate, it'll not be a very short short story.

Oh, and the von Karma that appeared in this first installment was indeed Manfred by the way. The scene he shares with Gregory is pretty cool, as he really appears to be an intimidating prosecutor. Miles appears in a short scene too, similiar to the one in the anime original episode. Miles even pulls a mini-Conan by giving Gregory a clue how to proceed next with his investigation.

Post subject:  Re: New story: Turnabout of the Time Traveller.

Oh man, stuff happens in the second installment. Really curious to the next installment.

Spoiler:
Despite von Karma's usual tricks of locking the defense attorney out and having perfect evidence at hand, Gregory manages to at least cast doubt on the person he suspects is the real murder, so this person is called as a witness. Von Karma has of course instructed him in detail how to answer, and he even has an alibi for the time of the murder: he was at a party of some company called Bluecorp, and took a set of pictures there with a cute two-year old girl there who wore a pocket watch, and the pictures show he was at the party during the murder. The girl's name? Fransizka (von Karma was invited, but couldn't make it so his family went without him).

Gregory manages to push the right buttons so Franziska is summoned as a witness ("Yes, your daughter is only two, but she is widely known as a prodigy so surely she can testify". Through the questioning, Gregory figures out what how the alibi trick was pulled off, but he can't prove it. Gregory somehow manages to avoid a direct sentence and a new session is scheduled.

The next session: December 28. The trial can't continue, as the defendant Yuko has disappeared from the detention center. The only thing found in her holdings was a pistol, which had been fired within the room, but no sign of Yuko. The pistol is presented as evidence in court. While his client isn't there, Gregory manages to prove a piece of evidence implicating Yuko had been forged after her arrest, and accueses von Karma of forgery. The trial is however adjourned as von Karma is called by the Chief Prosecutor in relation to another case. One hour later, Gregory and Miles manage to catch the elevator together with the bailiff who was with him in court too.

2016. Phoenix Wright has only just started on his own as a defense attorney, when his assistant Maya Fey drags a woman to the office who seemed to be in need of help. A vending machine didn't accept her money as it was too old. As they talk, the woman explains she was supposed to be at a trial, but suddenly found herself wandering around in a strange-looking city. As they speak, the woman explains her name is Yuko, and that it appears she arrived here in 2016 from the year 2001....


Neat stuff here, from the link to DL6 (and keeping the door open for the GK2-3 case by having von Karma called out of court for something else) to the surprising appearance of several characters. Can't wait to see how this all wraps up eventually.

Bluecorp too?! This sounds really interesting by the looks of it.

The first installment was still pretty tame with fanservice actually, so I was quite pleasantly surprised the plot featured so many more references this time.
