^ I figured I might as well get the Takumi interview from the same magazine out before the end of the year. Again, it's a mystery-focused magazine, so it's more about what kind of mystery fiction Takumi likes and how AA works as mystery fiction.

Decided to add this article too because it's about a subject you don't often see mentioned in Ace Attorney dev-related sources: a report of a CEDEC lecture by one of the programmers of the series.

Composer Sugimori tweeted some interesting tidbits about his work on the original Ace Attorney, which is pretty rare, so I added them to GS Library.

Yes, GS Library is still alive even if I only update once every six months.

Edit: also added a short article from the official AA4 guidebook featuring various AA4 developers where they get to “complain” about Takumi and the work he made them do.

Nice reads as always, Ash! Interesting that the investigation theme was the first one made for the game but I can see it.

In these kinds of adventures, you tend to hear the 'overworld' theme a lot as it loops and loops while you move from screen to screen to talk with people/look for evidence, so perhaps that's why he started with that (the end product features a larger number of themes to be used in various situations, but he probably didn't know that at the start of the cycle).

Added a short GK2/Ace Attorney Investigations 2 Q&A where the developers answer a few questions from the readers. Most of them are about the characters and their designs, like asking whether Kay Faraday is a cat or dog person, where Edgeworth's cravats come from and about what kind of father Gregory was.

Nice stuff. lol at the "double peace sign" thing, I never saw it as that but I can totally see it now. Also that villain origin story AA game would be kinda cool though obviously a bit out of nowhere for the series to explore.

Can't believe we lost Oldbag in case 3 though :larry:

Finally got working on that insanely long interview on AA4 with Takumi, Nuri and Matsukawa from the official walktrough.

I got the book like in January and while I don't update GS Library often, at the time, I at least intended to do this interview this year so I had something substantial. But once I saw how daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn long the article was, I just kept postponing work on it. Anyway, it's done now! It's as far as I know the longest interview on AA4 available, as I don't think they had even remotely interviews on the game this long in game magazines etc.

Hi Ash! I'm back to catch up on all your interview articles after doing a Miles Edgeworth and faking my own death! I wanted to drop by and say おつかれさまでした and that I haven't forgotten. I'll be catching up on my GSvsAA project sometime soon now that I'm back in the AA fandom for a good while... but first I'll be blazing through The Great Ace Attorney and taking notes for later.

Some of these localized names are throwing me for a loop.

Nice to have you back! Travelling around the world and learning all about the world's justice systems while keeping in touch with your buddy Gumshoe right?! Looking forward to your future updates, I've noticed there's still a lot of interest in fandom regarding a comparison in the Japanese and localized text both in specific instances, but also in terms of general atmosphere/characterization. Don't disappear on us again! ;)

I'm skipping Chronicles for now as I have the 3DS games anyway and there are always plenty of other games I want ^^' But I guess I'll have to edit all my old DGS articles now to include the localized names now... (for all their first mentions at least...)

Nobody cares in a post DGS-release world, but I added a 2016 Nintendo Dream article where Yamazaki plays through the first part of The Foreign Turnabout (6-1) with the people of Nintendo Dream and they talk about it (I had already done the articles where they play 6-2 and 6-3 together before, for some reason I kept postponing work on this one).

Man... I almost feel bad for Yamazaki these days, though he did basically retire from being director for Ace Attorney and the franchise has sunk into obscurity until very recently. Hoping TGAAC's release will inspire Capcom to revive the franchise and we get a new AA game sometime soon. Maybe Takumi will get to return as director again. AA7 could be a fresh start on its own, even.

And I definitely care whenever you update. :3 The inner linguist in me sings whenever I deal with stories with a lot of cross-cultural phenomena, whether or not it's based on real or fantasy countries, so it's nice looking back at this stuff.

Added the Takumi interview from Famitsu's special on Ace Attorney's 20th Anniversary special! There are other interviews with people like Sugimori, but I'll probably get back to them much later.

Really cool stuff, thanks Ash! Fascinating reading how he came up with stuff while writing and even changed some things a bit while working on them...

Decided to get back to the AA3 column series for some reason. In the first few columns, Takumi would show off some of the things he wrote in his diary while plotting the story of the game (this first entry is about Turnabout Memories).

Last minor update of the year: old DS blog where Phoenix and Maya talk about some of the story ideas Takumi had for Rise from the Ashes before settling on what became the actual episode.

Wow, two updates in one week?? Short blog article from the AAI2 blog, where Yamazaki writes about how he came up with the story of the first episode in that game, and he reveals a canned idea for that one!

Sports car case sounds really fascinating. It's funny how he mostly thinks about cases in terms of plot twists or exciting premises and works from there but yeah good stuff as always Ash!

Doesn't Takumi do the same? The Rise from the Ashes update I posted before the AAI2 one had Takumi say the exact same thing, that he always needs to start with an interesting case.

Added minor update from the AA4 blog, about the developers taking pictures of themselves as reference material for the character animations!

Added an interesting and rather unique interview with Yamazaki today. This is an Ace Attorney 4 era interview, dated just before the game’s release, so Yamazaki was, to the audience, still “just” a planner for Rise from the Ashes and AA4. This would be months before Eshiro would bring up making Ace Attorney Investigations and long before any of us would guess that Yamazaki would direct the next two mainline titles, so that’s cool. He talks about his tasks as a planner for Rise and AA4, and you might be surprised to learn how involved he was with the English localization of the first game!
