Aksys Games and Arc System Works have announced the localization of Chase: Cold Case Investigations ~Distant Memories~ to the West! The game will be available on the Nintendo eShop for 3DS on October 13th for both North America and Europe. People may be familiar with Taisuke Kanasaki’s previous work, Hotel Dusk: Room 215 for the original Nintendo DS. Similar to that game, you assume the role of detective and investigate various cases. Chase: Cold Case Investigations provides two detectives and the ability to interrogate witnesses. As a fan of Hotel Dusk, I’m surprised and delighted to hear that this game is coming here.
Aksys Games provided more information in a press release:
Aksys Games and Arc System Works are proud to announce that Chase: Cold Case Investigations ~Distant Memories~ will be available in North America and Europe 10/13/16 for the Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system! Chase: Cold Case Investigations ~Distant Memories~ is an adventure mystery game from the mind of Taisuke Kanasaki, director of the famed Hotel Dusk: Room 215! Join the exploits of two gritty detectives whose sense of justice and raw instinct drive them to seek the truth. Put your sleuthing skills to the challenge by re-investigating old crime scenes and solving cold cases by searching for clues and interrogating perps!
Investigate- Find leads by diving head first into old investigation notes, crime scene photos and eye witness reports as you put together all the pieces.
Interrogate- Once you have a solid lead, interrogate persons of interest to see what they do (or don’t) know. Grill perps by asking tough questions, but be careful! Ask the wrong questions and your Interrogation Gauge will deplete. Ask too many wrong questions and it’s Game Over!
