Originally released for the Family Computer Disk System ("Famicom") in the late 1980s in Japan only, FAMICOM DETECTIVE CLUB: THE MISSING HEIR is now being offered in a refreshed version for Nintendo Switch owners. Available as a digital download from the Nintendo eShop, this game features English subtitles for the first time, updated graphics, sound effects, and music (or you can choose to hear the original 8-bit soundtrack). In Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir, you assume the role of an amnesiac junior detective, who awakens to the realization that he has fallen (or was perhaps pushed?) off the side of a cliff, but thankfully has landed on some shrubbery to break his fall. While his past is initially hazy, he wants to continue working for the Utsugi Detective Agency, and returns to investigate a murder involving the wealthy Ayashiro family in the Japanese countryside. You partner with the young Ayumi Tachibana, who also works at the detective agency, to uncover the truth of both this complex murder case and your own missing memories. A P.I. assistant, your sleuthing skills include interrogating characters, including suspects, in this small village, along with searching the environment for clues, analyzing evidence, and deducing who might be responsible for a heinous crime. Much of this suspenseful adventure game is presented as a visual novel, but with animation, too, as you'll select dialogue topics from a pull-down menu, comb the screen with a magnifying class in search of evidence, and refer to your notebook to cross-reference hunches and facts.
