Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of the Dusk arrives on Nintendo 3DS
Did you know the series has actually been around for a long, long time?
Aksys Games announced today that Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of the Dusk is finally available on Nintendo 3DS in North America. The game carries an MSRP of $39.99 USD, and you can find it on the Nintendo eShop and at most other places where you typically buy games.
Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of the Dusk marks the first new Jake Hunter game to head west (it is also available in Europe) in more than a decade. That's a long hiatus, but Jake is back with five new cases never before seen outside Japan.
Ghost of the Dusk begins with an investigation into a homeless man's death. Jake investigates, and his search for clues takes him to a mysterious mansion. Working with an old friend, Jake will try to figure out what it is about the case that bugs him so much, even as the owner of the aforementioned mansion brings a bizarre proposal to him and dark secrets threaten to surface.
Also included in the collection of cases are Legend of the Demon Princess, For Love, Forget Me Not, Four Seasons and a comic episode titled Jake Hunter Unleashed! School Festival Locked Office Case.
Game features highlighted in today's press release announcement include:
The Jake Hunter franchise has been thriving in Japan for some time, where it is known as Tantei Jinguuji Saburou. The first game arrived on the Famicom Disk System in 1987, and numerous additional titles followed by the end of the 8-bit era.
The franchise has since made appearances on a variety of platforms, including the PlayStation, Game Boy Advance, DS and iOS. Most titles haven't reached the United States, despite the prolific output, but maybe that trend will change. A couple of Switch versions may also be on the way, interest permitting.
Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of the Dusk was developed by Arc System Works and, as suggested above, is published by Aksys Games. It's probably one of the last 3DS games we'll see from a third-party publisher, given waning support for that platform. Are you glad to see it finally become available?
