Jake Hunter Returns for Another Mystery on 3DS

The Jake Hunter, AKA Tantei Jingūji Saburō, series has been running since Data East kicked it off with the first Famicom entry in 1987. Now Aksys Games plans to bring over Arc System Works’ latest entry in the form of Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of Dusk, which is coming to Nintendo 3DS in the west this fall.



Here’s the story this time around: 

A homeless man’s accidental death draws hard-nosed detective Jake Hunter into the shadow of a mysterious mansion—but all is not as it appears at the seemingly innocuous crime scene, and Jake can’t shake the hunch that something is amiss. With the help of an old friend, Jake works to get to the bottom of the crime and uncover the true culprit’s identity. But when the mansion’s owner comes to Jake with a new proposal, things take a turn for the bizarre as dark secrets are forced from the shadows. Now, it’s up to Jake to track down the source of the madness.




  • Hardboiled Action – Dive into a gritty world populated by shady characters, dubious allies, and more than a hunt of the supernatural. You’ll need to harness all of your focus and skills to separate fact from fiction.
  • Investigative Instincts – To solve this mystery, you’ll need to use all of your master detective skills: question suspects, search crime scenes, and zero in on inconsistencies to discover the truth.
  • New Cases, New Faces – After a long hiatus, Jake Hunter is back on the beat and tasked with solving all-new cases with a cast of original characters and the return of some familiar friends.
  • And the Password Is… – Discover passwords hidden throughout the game’s world to unlock side stories, bonus features, and more!
