It seems fans of Jake Hunter Detective Story series in the west has something to look forward to in the future.
A post on Twitter shows Daedalus: The Awakening of Golden Jazz includes an English localization staff on its credits. However, Arc System Works has yet to confirm if the game will be released for the western audience.
Daedalus: The Awakening of Golden Jazz is a prequel to the Jake Hunter Detective Story series. It launched in Japan on December 13, 2018. While the latest Jake Hunter 3DS game has been published by Aksys Games for the west, there have been no word yet if Aksys Games or Arc System Works will handle the localization.
By the by, one thing is for sure, the inclusion of an English localization team indicates the game could still make it to the west.
Here’s the tweet:
ダイダロスの英語版が出るみたい。探偵神宮寺三郎は「Jake Hunter」ってローカライズ版はすでにあるけどあれは設定が日本でもないし、神宮寺も日本人じゃないから、ダイダロスの話と根本的に全然合わないやん。 pic.twitter.com/RVfPeFJX4c
