Never heard of Lux-Pain? It's a Nintendo DS text-based adventure that was released in Japan in early 2008. After hearing the buzz, I tried to give dark detective/mystery game a spin, but the Japanese text was a bit over my comprehension level. From what I saw, it looked great. Now, thanks to Ignition Entertainment, Marvelous Interactive, and developer Killaware, we will be able to play it next year in English.
Murder mysteries, stylus autopsies, and parasitic worms? Awesome! The press release says that we can expect this title to hit shelves in North America in March of 2009.
For now, check out the screenshots they sent along in our gallery and the Japanese trailer for this game above.
