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...

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? ;_;

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.

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

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?

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.

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.

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.

The latest issue of Mystery Magazine will be released this week, featuring the third installment of this story. Looking forward to it, as the end of the second installment really shook things up!

So a new Mystery Magazine was released a few weeks ago, and together with a nice special on mystery comics, it also included the third installment of this story. Not sure if anyone is still interested, but a summary:

Spoiler:
2016. After a call from Doctor Kitamita, Yuko rushes out of the Wright Law Office. The next day, the office gets a call: Yuko was arrested for murder, and she had nothing on her except for Phoenix' business card. Yuko was found inside a lab room inside the Kitamita Laboratory: she was found lying unconcious on the floor, but the victim had been frozen inside a cryogenic capsule. The room was locked from the inside, so Yuko was the obvious suspect as the only other person inside. Kitamita himself has disappeared.

Phoenix offers to help her, but she refuses, saying nobody truly believes her story. After a short investigation at the crime scene (with the help of a friendly police detective), Phoenix also finds evidence to back up Yuko's time travelling story: he remembered she had mentioned she had been a student of Yumei (Ivy) University in 2001, so Phoenix went back to his old university, and found evidence of her being a student there in 2001 (but she disappeared) and even found people who knew her back then. Yuko decides to accept Phoenix' help and explains that after leaving the Wright Law Office, she met with Kitamita, and that he wanted her help fending off a potential assailant (in the first installment, Kitamita said he had to jump back in time from 2016 to 2001 because he was being assaulted). Yuko also tells them she had been on trial in 2001, but she can't remember the names of the attorney or prosecutor involved.

Phoenix and Maya try to find the court records, and stumble upon a mysterious file: someone has blackened out all the names in the file (Maya suggests it may be the prosecutor. The reader knows from the previous installment that von Karma had PLENTY of reasons to want to erase traces of this trial) But from what's left, they are sure it's the file on Yuko's 2001 trial, which ended with her disappearance. Because they're still missing crucial information, Maya surprisingly suggests that they might try BlueCorp, as they specialize in dealing with information and they might have technology that allows them to read out the blackened segments.

BlueCorp didn't manage to get back to them on time, so the first day of the trial starts with Phoenix going empty-handed against Payne. Larry is revealed to be the part-time guard who discovered the crime scene. At first it seems like an open-and-shut case for Payne and while Larry's doing a pretty good job as a witness for a change, a small unexpected event turns the tide in Phoenix' favor. The story however ends with Edgeworth barging in at the last moment, saying he'll take over the case as they discovered that the victim was in fact Kitamita himself, and that Yuko's "Kitamita" was an imposter. This triggers some memories of Yuko, who is starting to remember some details from 2001, but it's also at that time that Phoenix receives the court records back from Bluecorp, which allows him to find out what happened in the 2001 trial.


It's become a pretty interesting story, now Yuko's got accused of basically the same murder in both periods!

Bluecorp always existed in 2016; 1-2 is set only a month or so before the 2016 part of this story. And why wouldn't the (front) company itself still exist, even after those events?

It appears a collected volume of this story will be released on September 22. This was not a given by the way: a story serialized in IN POCKET in 2007 (Turnabout Bridge) was never collected/reprinted. Madoy also wrote on Twitter today that's he's right now working on the last part of the story.

The serialization is skipping this issue (despite an announcement in the last issue it would continue in this one!). That means that the serialization is basically over: the standalone volume which will collect all the installments/the complete story is scheduled for a release around the same day as the next Mystery Magazine, which would presumably contain the final installment too.

Edit: I just got confirmation from author Madoy that the standalone book should release as scheduled and that the next issue of Mystery Magazine will indeed contain the next installment too, which means the complete book will be out three days before the serialized version of the final installment is published.

But it's simple, the order in any normal Japanese store is publisher's bookcase -> line (paperback/hardcover/etc.) -> a-i-u-e-o name order. Or go to any of the reasonably-sized bookstores, they usually have terminals there for customers to use where you can look up your book, and it'll give you the exact location of the book (floor/section/bookcase) and number of stock.

Yeah, I used to be able to find novels... But last time, I tried to find Turnabout Idol and/or Turnabout Airport and just could not locate them >_<

Maybe I'll have better luck come September...

Those books were released in a children's line (Kadokawa Tsubasa Bunko), so they were probably located in the children's corner, rather than the usual bookcases.

And that's just for Airport and Idol, right? Time Traveler should be a regular book under Hayakawa, right?

Very probably. The Kinokuniya entry doesn't mention any labels, but it's definitely not going to a children's line. If you're in Japan around the release though, you should probably come across it at the usual 'new releases' table most bookstores have for each publisher. If there's one thing Japanese bookstores can do in an efficient way, it's promoting new releases.

The standalone book of Turnabout of the Time Traveller was pushed back a few days from its original release date and was released today, while the issue of Mystery Magazine containing the last installment was released yesterday, so the complete story is out now. It's been a wild ride until now, so I'm really excited to see how this case is going to unfold!

Author Madoy tweeted a bit about writing this book today, so for those interested:

Quote:
Turnabout of the Time Traveller Tidbits (1)
When the offer came, I gladly accepted, but when I sat down to plan the project, I realized how difficult it would be. Because they've already done everything you could possibly do in the main games! And I could of course not go develop the characters on my own.

Turnabout of the Time Traveller Tidbits (2)
And the interesting characters (especially the rival prosecutors) are a characteristic of the series, but the deeper down the timeline I'd go, the more troublesome it would get to avoid spoilers, so I decided to give up on featuring all of those characters (there are probably also people who first play the games after having read the novel).

Turnabout of the Time Traveller Tidbits (3)
So after quite some thinking, I decided to use "15 years" as my keyword, as this was a novel to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary. That way, I could write about the battle that ensued between Gregory Edgeworth and Manfred von Karma (by setting the story right after Episode 2 of the first game, I'd also be able to avoid spoilers more easily).

Turnabout of the Time Traveller Tidbits (4)
Anyway, once I started writing, I felt the limitations I mentoined were proving to be quite a hurdle, but I did add all kinds of small references for fans of the games kind enough to pick this novel up. I also hope you'll enjoy the grand theme that is time travelling.
