Tecmo confirmed their interactive crime novel, Again, and Monster Rancher DS for release in North America. Both games Nintendo DS games are slated for March 2010.
In Again: Eye of Providence you play as Jonathan Weaver, a FBI agent with the power to see in the past. His past vision skill utilizes both screens – one for the past and one for the present. The style of this work is different from Cing’s other DS mystery game, Hotel Dusk. Again makes use of actors instead of art. Not too surprised about seeing Again on Tecmo’s list since they mentioned an international release two Tokyo Game Shows ago and released English screenshots. We have more of those, but before that Monster Rancher DS which is a surprise.
Monster Rancher DS lets players makes monsters by speaking, drawing and kanji writing. Not sure how the latter is going to transfer over or if Tecmo is going to cut that out. Monster Rancher DS (aka Monster Farm DS 2 in Japan) also supports Nintendo Wi-Fi for online battles. Good to see the Monster Rancher series back in action. Even though you can’t do it in this game, digging through DVDs in search of the ultimate Suezo was fun.
