Touch Detective 3 + The Complete Case Files Announces March 2024 Release; Localization Updates & More Detailed

Nicalis has announced that the point-and-click adventure collection developed by Beeworks Games and Success Corporation, Touch Detective 3 + The Complete Case Files, will launch Westward for Nintendo Switch on March 28, 2024, both physically and digitally.

Nicalis also announced that they worked with Success and Beeworks, the game’s Japanese publisher and developer, respectively, “to update the localizations of Touch Detective and Touch Detective 2½, restoring some small details from the original Japanese text that were lost when the games were originally released in English-speaking territories on Nintendo DS. In some cases, these changes actually introduce subtle clues that are intended to aid in Mackenzie’s investigations. “

The following gameplay note was also provided:

“Also, since the original releases used a second screen to display Mackenzie’s thoughts, these brief asides now appear as interludes superimposed over the main gameplay. This makes it easier to follow the story and ensures that players won’t miss any of her often humorous inner monologue.”

The three mainline Touch Detective games will be featured alongside “two bonus scenarios and an extensive in-game gallery with over 500 images of rare artwork, development sketches, and comic strips.” Additionally, this release marks the third game’s localized debut.

The series follows protagonist rookie detective Mackenzie, solving mysteries with her mushroom assistant Funghi and family butler Cromwell. Touch screen functionality will enable interaction with characters, objects, and puzzles.

Other significant characters include Mackenzie’s friends Penelope and Chloe and rival detective Norman Touche. The bonus scenarios have Funghi interviewing people, solving puzzles, and more.

Touch Detective 3 + The Complete Case Files will receive a digital and physical release, with the latter available in standard ($49.99) and special ($59.99) versions. The special edition features a plush of Funghi Plush. Physical pre-orders are now available ($49.99 for standard and $59.99 for plush bundle.

Touch Detective 3 + The Complete Case Files will cost $39.99 digitally.
