Japan has produced plenty of quirky video game developers, but one of my personal favorites is Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro. The last generation’s Deadly Premonition was a pretty unique adventure despite its jank, while D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die was a very fun adventure game for the modern era. Now Swery is about to release his first game since forming his own studio, White Owls Inc., and it’ll be the first of his games to hit a Nintendo system.

The MISSING: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories is a fittingly weird blend of action-adventure gameplay, with the titular J.J. trying to find her lost friend Emily while facing the constant threat of death. It’s no end for her, though, as you can rise from the ashes or even use your dismembered body parts to solve puzzles.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
