Aksys games has announced that Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of the Dusk is now available for the Nintendo 3DS handheld system. You can get the game both at retail and via the Nintendo 3DS eShop. This marks the first time in a decade that this popular adventure series has come to North America and Europe.

Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of the Dusk includes five brand new cases that are being released outside of Japan for the very first time. In the case Ghost of the Dusk, the accidental death of a homeless man attracts the attention of detective Jake Hunter. He soon finds himself snooping in the shadow of a strange mansion. Things seem pretty normal at the scene, but of course not all is as it seems. Is it ever?

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
