Arc System Works’ Nintendo eShop Mystery: Girl of the Old School Building

Last week, Arc System Works put up a teaser website for a mysterious Nintendo eShop game, which was recently updated by them. Titled Girl of the Old School Building, the game is set in a scenic town known for its ghost stories and urban legends.


As the title suggests, the game’s story takes place at a high school. There are seven different mysteries that are spoken of at this school, but the game’s main character is investigating one of them in particular—the mystery of the unopened door in the school library.


Arc System Works haven’t shared a price or release date for Girl of the Old School Building yet. No screenshots of the game are available yet either, although you can spot a few tiny ones in the image below:

    So it’s like Dusk Maiden of Amnesia meets Corpse Party meets Professor Layton?

    Interesting. I don’t think I’ve played a game by them that wasn’t a fighter.

    Daimon Kaito, puzzle time no hajimari da!

  • XypherCode

    Yeah I’m really thinking Corpse Party xD

  • I wonder what role the watch-esque thing on the female protagonist’s wrist plays in the series. This game looks interesting hopefully we’ll get see some screenshots or trailer sometime in the future. 

    Nintendo eShop continues to grow with a good selection of games. 

    • Hmmm… It must be… a Compass! That points to ghosts!

  • Göran Isacson

    Was expecting a beat-em-up of sorts, but I have to admit: this doesn’t sound too bad either.

  • Leivinia

    Ahahahahaha, so when the girl said 久々に腕が鳴るわ in one of the site’s teaser lines, she meant solving puzzles; that’s great. I swear ArcSys was going to pull a fighting game out of nowhere.
