Whoooooops, just added another must-play game to my September. Where’s… that going to go…
Aksys Games announced that Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of the Dusk will be released on 3DS in North America on the 28th, bringing with it five additional cases never before released in North America in addition to the main scenario. I’ve put descriptions for each (as provided by the publisher) after the break!
I haven’t played a mystery adventure-type game in a long time, even though visual novel-style games are EVERYWHERE now.
In Legend of the Demon Princess, Jake’s newest client Misty Yarbrough requests that he look into a possible affair between her husband and Jake’s assistant Yulia. As Jake gets deeper into his investigation he discovers a connection between his current case and an old novel entitled Legend of the Demon Princess. Join Jake as he works to unravel the mystery.
For Love begins with Jake saving Tripudio District bar owner Crystal Moon from a gang of predatory loan sharks. Afterwards, she hires Jake to look into a rumor spreading throughout the underground elements of Tripudio about a tragedy born out of a deep, abiding love.
It’s taken eight years, but Jake has finally come close to finishing a task first instigated by a woman named Rachel Hall who entrusted him to deliver a sealed envelope to her daughter Karen Tran, but she adamantly refuses to accept it. Follow Jake through across almost a decade in the bittersweet Forget Me Not.
Two young men meet in front of an antique shop called Four Seasons whose storefront is bathed in the light of the setting sun.
“I guess Mr. Hunter isn’t going to make it in time after all…”
“Don’t worry about it. I still have faith in him.”
What promises did Jake Hunter to these two? A new case begins to unfold with the eponymous antique shop at its center.
Ghost of the Dusk also includes the special episode Jake Hunter Unleashed! School Festival Locked Office Case. On a rare day off Jake heads to the M college campus with his stalwart assistant Yulia for the school’s famous summer festival. Unfortunately for poor Yulia they arrived a day early so instead of awesome food, drinks, and entertainment the only things waiting for them were silence and disappointment. However, before they can leave the campus the sudden distant wail of a siren draws Jake and Yulia into a case involving an asphyxiated club member, his less than cognizant friends, and an a number of mysteries to be unraveled. Will Jake be able to overcome red herrings, unreliable witnesses, and Yulia’s over exuberance to solve the case, or will his ultimate reward be a rocket-powered punch to the face?
