OBJECTION! This New Game Clearly Shows Forensics Inspectors Are Necessary!

By Eugene . October 23, 2013 . 5:01pm


Ever wondered where Phoenix Wright gets all his evidence tested at in Dual Destinies? Or maybe you already know the answer, having watched more CSI than I ever did. (Pop quiz: How many series are there and how many seasons? First in comments wins bragging rights!) If your answer was a forensics expert, you’d be right on the ball.


And now, D3 Publisher is coming out with how it feels to be one with their latest @Simple DS titles, number 21’s The Forensics Inspector.


Players will take on the role of a forensics inspector as they scour the crime scene, examine and test evidence to eventually discover exactly who the perpetrator is in four different crimes. All for just 500 yen (US$5) Pretty cheap and spiffy, and a nice way to take a look at a heavily underappreciated job.


@Simple DS Series Vol 21: The Forensics Inspector will be available from October 30th on the Nintendo 3DS eShop in Japan.

    There are half a dozen series and one million seasons.



  • Thomaz Barros

    3 series and 728 episodes

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    CSI is on it’s 13th. season, CSI Miami got cancelled after it’s 10th. season, CSI: NY got cancelled after it’s 9th. season, NCIS is on it’s 11th. season, NCIS: Los Angeles is on it’s 5th. season, Law & Order lasted for 20 seasons, Law & Order: LA lasted one season, Law & Order: Trial By Jury lasted one season, Law & Order: SVU is on it’s 15th. season and Law & Order: Criminal Intent lasted 10 minutes.

    TL;DR version: They’re all the police procedural shows I can think of.

    • What about the ones with unlikely “Crime Fighting” pairings, like The Mentalist, or Castle! Or that other one that’s very heavy on Forensics than with anything else, like, um… Bones?

    • Exkaiser

      There’s also Criminal Minds and its spinoff, which are pretty close to the NCIS, Law and Order sort of formula

        Ohhh I love Criminal Minds. :D I think it’s on its 6th or 7th season, last I checked.

        Why did I forget Criminal Minds and Bones? I love those shows :S

    I remember this game, never played it but remember seeing it long time ago.

  • InfectedAI

    I really wish they would localize the Simple series, but this will probably never make it out of Japan.

  • eli-boo’s waifu

    This looks really cool. :D I have a friend named Ema (yes, like Ema Skye, I know its creepy lol) who wants to be a forensic investigator, and no, she’s never played Ace Attorney. This looks right up her alley.
