Nintendo 3DS Mystery Game From Capcom Has Players Talk To Characters With The Mic

okamidenMinoru Nakai, director of Resident Evil: Deadly Silence, and Yukinori Kitajama, scenario writer on 428 and more recently Okamiden (pictured), are designing a Nintendo 3DS game that utilizes sound to the fullest.


Nazo Waku Mansion (it’s something like Deluding Mysterious Mansion in English) has 3D graphics and audio. The game’s genre is a "mystery adventure" and players will explore the mansion. However, all of the controls are done with a touch screen and the microphone. Similar to point and click adventures, players can scan the room by tapping on commands with the stylus. Move the Nintendo 3DS to change the camera angle, Nazo Waku Mansion uses the Nintendo 3DS’ built-in gyro sensor for this feature. It’s possible to talk to characters within the mansion using the game’s voice input system and the microphone too.


The game’s graphical style was compared to D, which has a mix of animation and fantasy. You can see a trailer for the old 3DO version here.


Capcom plans to release Nazo Waku Mansion in Japan this summer.

    OMG Capcom is making a Hey you Megaman!!! game. Nice I always wanted to yell at the blue bomber and watch him live his day-to-day grind. XD
    lol It does sound fun. Horror games seem to work best with me when they ether have innovative ways to play or are Visual Novels. I heard so much good things about 428. Now I want it. :(
