We’ve seen a lot of vague spring 2008 release windows from Aksys and a month before their first game of 2008 comes out we got hold of their initial 2008 schedule. Aksys begins the year with MiniCopter: Adventure Flight, which comes out on April 8 for the Wii. Castle of Shikigami III follows it closely coming out on April 29 for the Wii only at this time. Remember the ESRB has Castle of Shikigami 3 rated as an Xbox 360 game too.
Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles kicks off May and it will come out on the third. Then on May 27, the end of the month Super Dodgeball Brawlers pummels its way into stores with intact Kunio-kun names.
Here is a quick summary:
MiniCopter: Adventure Flight (Wii) – 4/8
Castle of Shikigami III (Wii) – 4/29
Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles (NDS) – 5/3
Super Dodgeball Brawlers (NDS) – 5/27
I’m particularly interested in Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles since it has a grittier feel than the comedic Phoenix Wright games. If you haven’t read our interview with Aksys about the Jinguuji Saburo localization check it out and catch the US trailer below. Yes, it’s in English.
