’80s Famicom Detective Club titles are headed west on Nintendo Switch for the first time ever


During today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo revealed that two classic interactive murder mystery visual novels are being revamped and localized for launch on Switch, offering western audiences their first ever official opportunity to play these ’80s hits.

Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir (1988) and Famicom Detective Club: The Girl Who Stands Behind (1989) bring anime murder most foul to the Nintendo platform, challenging players to pit their finest deductive skills against a list of suspects in two dark, creepy, and perhaps even supernatural dramas. Put your thinking caps on, and stay one step ahead of a killer.

Both Famicom Detective Club titles are available to pre-order today, ahead of their May 14 release.
