Famicom Tantei Club: Kieta Kōkeisha

A little over a year ago, remakes of both Famicom Tantei Club I and II were announced for a 2020 release on Switch. However, according to a tweet from Nintendo translated by Gematsu, the titles have been delayed to an unspecified release date sometime in 2021.

Here’s the full statement and the announcement trailer:

Hello my lovely listeners! This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, we’re talking two great releases this week: Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition, and The TakeOver. We’ve got more video game updates on Animal Crossing, Bug Fables, and even Yu-Gi-Oh!, then some Pokemon Sword and Shield DLC news. We have an excellent listener mail question about hidden gem series like Hotel Dusk, Famicom Tantei Club, and other obscure text-based, point-and-click adventures.
