Game news Famicom Detective Club: a new opus considered?
Released only in Japan in 1988, Famicom Detective Club made its arrival this spring on the European Switch. A convincing entry that could lead to new titles for the license.
On May 14, 2021, Europe hosted Famicom Detective Club for the first time in two updated versions: The Girl Who Stands Behind and The Missing Heir. A convincing arrival on the Old Continent since the two titles collect on Metacritic an average of 15/20, whether for the press or for the public. Therefore, it is legitimate to ask the following question: will such a success engage Nintendo to produce a new one? In an interview with Famitsu and translated by NintendoEverything, Makoto Asada (chief producer) of Mages said he was interested:
With these games, our goal was to create the pinnacle of text-based adventure play, so we used development techniques intended for other games. Thanks to Nintendo and their development team, we made the best game possible. How are we going to do something so good again? We have acquired a certain know-how with these two games, experience that one day I would like to put into practice on a new Famicom Detective Club.
As a reminder, Mages (formerly called 5bp) is known for his work on Steins Gate, Plastic Memories, Psycho Pass or even Bravely Default 1. Quality work since Famicom Detective Club collected a 17/20 in our columns. Both titles have been available exclusively on Switch since May 14, 2021.
