In the Switch’s lifetime Nintendo has been pretty darn good at localizing its titles and bringing them to the wider world. That makes anything that does remain Japan-only all the more noteworthy. That’s exactly the position Buddy Mission BOND finds itself in – a new adventure game/visual novel from Koei Tecmo and Nintendo that’s yet to be confirmed for an English release.

Featuring character designs from Yusuke Murata, the artist of One-Punch Man and Eyeshield 21, it’s an eye catching game for sure. Players will set up a pair of partners to both investigate and infiltrate criminal activity, with the events changing based on what they’re able to uncover and who they’ve chosen for each job. It’s a bit tough to grasp just as words, but enjoy the below overview trailer to see it all unfold:

While there’s no word on any sort of English release or support, with a Japanese eShop account anyone should be able to pick up the game or its free demo today.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
