New story: Turnabout of the Time Traveller.

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:

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.

Spirit of Justice site updates round 1: characters

I'm going to be very honest: it's late and I'm tired so let's make this quick. Character profiles for Spirit of Justice are up, featuring profile images, localized names, and info/background on every character in the game. Note that if you don't want to see the cast of characters, you shouldn't click that link. Otherwise, spoilers are tagged on each profile. Note that this includes info on the DLC characters (again, including localized names.)

You'll likely notice some small errors here or there, both content and display-wise. Those will hopefully be fixed soon. If you see any really egregious errors point them out below.
