Teaser site opened today, spring 2016 release. "Hard-boiled" adventure game directed by Taisuke Kanasaki (Another Code/Hotel Dusk) with other former Cing staff also working on it. Published by Arc System Works.

Teaser site said:
"Was it an accident? Or was it something more...?"
With a single phone call, an ancient case once again begins to move.

The guy on the right looks like a pallette swap of Kyle Hyde.

Really excited for this. I hope it's localized.

I've played both the first Trace Memory and Hotel Dusk but need to play the PAL versions of their sequels.

A spiritual sequel to "Kyle Hyde"-Saga would be sweet. Maybe they should also think about releasing on more platforms, unless this is a Nintendo funded thing. Don't want them to go bankrupt again.

Short haired Rachel and Hyde.

I wasn't too blown away by last window but I enjoyed Hotel Dusk, be interesting to see what they do next. The art style was always cool.

I can't stop laughing at Dark Kyle.

For a localization in Europe...
and that ArcSys sticks to their recent policy :')

Given what happened with Last Window, it's only fair that this gets passed over for a European release.

Music sounds like Satoshi Okubo. This is good.

Do we know is Rika Suzuki is involved?

Do we know if Nintendo approached them yet for Another Code 3?

I need answers.

I'm in for a spiritual successor/off-brand Kyle Hyde. I hope that team works on their puzzle design, though, because I found both of those games extremely frustrating to actually play, particularly the sequel.

Music is very Okubo, but no other specific staff announced yet unfortunately.

I have no idea if AC3 is even in the realm of possibility at this point. How do the rights for that and Hotel Dusk shake out, anyway...?

I do think the rights are Nintendo's and this game looks like another "non-X" example, like The Legend of Legacy wasn't SaGa and Existed Archive wasn't Valkyrie Profile.

Pretty sure they are fully Nintendo-owned even though Cing was a third party to Nintendo.

Rika Suzuki and other Cing members opened a book company called Bellwood, where they write novels and wish good morning.

Ok Arc System Works. Just tell me the place. I'll perform all the human sacrifices you need to see that localised. Even if we don't know anything about the game :p

So, you're telling me there's a chance?


Alas... since Nintendo owns the IP, and doesn't really seem interested in that kind of game anymore now that the "Touch Generation" thing is over, the chance of a third entry are extremely low. Oh well, at least the series didn't end on a cliffhanger or anything, and actually had a pretty satisfying ending.

Music sounds like Satoshi Okubo. This is good.

Do we know is Rika Suzuki is involved?

I need answers.

I doubt Rika Suzuki is involved at all, that would definitely be mentioned in the article.

As for the music, 100% certain it's Satoshi Okubo now.

Hotel Dusk and the sequel are my favourite DS games. A spiritual successor by ex-CING staff... wow. I'm so excited.

Live you where?
I don't believe Suzuki's involved with CHASE but that would be just the greatest thing. Right now she works at Bellwood doing a wide variety of contract work. Meanwhile this looks great and hopefully can provide a fun investigation procedural story, and it better get localized.

I hope this gets localized. I never thought we'd see a Cing game ever again. This is as close as it gets, in everything but name.

ah man, this looks good.

that music on the official page...
jeepers.

I would love this, for that matter, I would also love an eShop release of Trace Memory 2, but I don't think I'll get either of them. Would love to be wrong.

What is it with AWESOME announcement this week?
Just give this game to me! Hotel Dusk and Last Window were AWESOME games and I mourned the day CING went bankrupt. So glad some leftover staff are continuing their legacy.

This game needs to come over, so I can buy it with every 3DS that I own.

Looks great, I like the sound of "Hard-Boiled Adventure Game"; Sound like this will be a gritty detective VN.

Can't access the page at the moment, is it still take on me style?

Cel shaded 3D models that look a bit like the characters from Hotel Dusk, but not black and white take on me style.

CING??? Oh man, it's been FOREVER since I've heard that beautiful name. So happy to see a new game by former staff pop up...about damn time. Day one if localized.

Do you guys know if this is the first game made by major ex-CING staff since the studio's closure?

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Best news I've heard in a long time. The music on the teaser site could be straight out of Hotel Dusk or The Last Window. The dude is straight-up Kyle Hyde, and the girl kind of resembles Rachel...sort of? Not that I need this to be a Hotel Dusk knock-off. If they literally carried on from where they left off but with off-brand characters, that'd actually be kind of bad. I'm sure this will be very much in the same style, but a brand new story, which is fine by me. I just really hope it gets localised, like, more than any other game.
