Aksys Games revealed today that Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of Dusk, coming later this month on Nintendo 3DS, will feature five additional Jake Hunter cases never before released in North America.
In Ghost of the Dusk, A homeless man’s accidental death draws hard-nosed detective Jake Hunter into the shadow of a mysterious mansion—but all is not as it appears at the seemingly innocuous crime scene, and Jake can’t shake the hunch that something is amiss. With the help of an old friend, Jake works to get to the bottom of the crime and uncover the true culprit’s identity. But when the mansion’s owner comes to Jake with a new proposal, things take a turn for the bizarre as dark secrets are forced from the shadows. Now, it’s up to Jake to track down the source of the madness.
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?
