It has been revealed in the latest issue of Famitsu, that Namco Bandai are currently developing a 3DS game based on the 2012 hit thriller comedy film, SPEC: Heaven. The movie is about a duo of a high IQ detective and her distinguished partner who solve cases by postulating the “SPEC” of criminals in order to arrest them.


The 3DS game will alternate between visual novel parts and command-based adventure parts with pixelated character sprites. SPEC: Heaven’s story will also be supervised by the original writer of the film Yumie Nishiogi, producers Hiroki Ueda and Natsuki Imai. The magazine issue also reveals the game will feature automatic feed for texts, backlog, glossary and tips


Erika Toda and Ryo Kase, the two starring actors from the film are said to have appeared in a photo op for the game, however, it has yet to be revealed whether they’ll be part of it or if the 3DS game will follow the same storyline.


SPEC: Heaven is slated for release in October 3rd for Nintendo 3DS.

    The movie was actually pretty decent. But this game looks like it could be interesting, VN/Adventure hybrid? You don’ t see those very often.

  • Solomon_Kano

    A comedy thriller? What an odd mix.

    • Juan Andrés Valencia

      It’s not that odd, there are many films that combine those two genres flawlessly.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Hm. Well, it’s not a mix that’s familiar to me, at least.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Considering the movie is quite nice, i hope this game will expand more on the movie or even come out with original story here.^_^……(Erika Todaaaaaaaaa.^_^)

  • Learii

    is it JRPG?

  • British_Otaku

    Sounds worth an import if it was more action orientated… >_>

    I’ll have to try learning Japanese then picking this one up though…

  • Gilgamesh2025

    Can’t wait for the first trailer!

  • forweg

    A SPEC video game is a really cool idea, but sadly the movie kinda sucked. Too bad it’s not based on the great TV series instead.
