      • Renaldi Saputra

        they only localize anything based on jump series if it’s anime adaptation, and very popular one like dragon ball or naruto or one piece.. except if you ask them directly in a conference like saint seiya

        btw nice downvotes, those buggers

    I wonder how many of these actually have strong stories or feel as well executed as your Ace Attorney, Zero Escape, Ghost Trick etc. Still want to give it a spin as a fan of the manga, hopefully we get a demo this time.

    This always bode me a question.
    How many weeks has it been since Conan got shrunked?

    I mean, based on the amount of cases, holiday, vacation that they do, it should be more than a year, right?

    Ran should have graduated, gone to college.
    Or are they cursed by High school curse?

    Like Nobita and Doraemon. Forever 4th grade.

    • The timeline doesn’t matter in Detective Conan because the series would’ve been done for if it had an actual timeline because of characters aging and because there wouldn’t have been a resolution to the Black Organization, added with the fact that it would completely mess up the entire based story of Detective Conan if it had an actual timeline in place for the current settings of the series. Added with the fact that fans wouldn’t like seeing their favorite characters aged into an adult or turn into a old man. It even lead to some people thinking that the drug just lead Shinichi into a deep coma and the drug made him imagine all the things that are currently happening in the series which whoever said that is dumb. But if you’re interested in seeing their aged versions of the current characters who are strongly popular with everyone ie Haibara, The Detective Boys, Mouri Kogoro and Conan you should watch OVA 9 that’s the OVA where they had Conan take the antidote for Apotoxin 4869 while he was sick and he fell into a deep sleep and it lead him to a dream where everyone aged and that they never found a situation to the Black Organization and just lived their life till they got older and stuff. That’s an example of how if they had a real timeline in the series, it just wouldn’t have been the same at all. I’m like the biggest fan of the series and love everything about it too.

  • Correction. It’s Hattori Heiji in Japan, not the american Case Close Harley Hartwell

    Obligatory reminder that the 3DS is NOT region-free…

    Such a shame, this game looked really cool.
