Famicom-Detective-Club

Today saw Nintendo drop a lot of material for the Switch that’s planned for 2021. Some of which was expected, but some that you probably never even heard of. The latter example is that the company announced that two titles would be coming this year, Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir and Famicom Detective Club: The Girl Who Stands Behind.

If you haven’t heard of the franchise, that won’t be too surprising. These games are actually remakes of two older titles that was released on the Famicom (the Japanese name for the NES) in Japan, and despite being re-released in several forms via GBA ports and Virtual Console releases, were never localized outside Japan.

The titles will be full remakes of those games. They are visual novel styled and narrative direction titles. The Missing Heir is a murder mystery while The Girl Who Stands Behind is a more supernatural thriller. Both involve a pair of young detectives who find themselves in unusual cases with lots of twists and turns.

Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir and Famicom Detective Club: The Girl Who Stands Behind will both release on the Nintendo Switch on May 14th. They will release as separate titles.
