Back in February we reported on the latest game in the long-running Jake Hunter Detective Story franchise, which at the time was only confirmed for a Japanese release. Now, via an Anime Expo 2017 panel, Aksys Games has confirmed it will be bringing the new entry to North American 3DS systems in 2018.

You can check out an off-screen trailer for the game below, via @RPGSite:

Only one other Jake Hunter game has made its way over to North American shores – Jake Hunter Detective Story: Memories of the Past for the DS. It was also released twice, once in 2008 and again in 2009 to provide a better translation and more content.

We’ll be sure to bring more on the game as we approach its localization in 2018.

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
