24th February 2009

Case Closed: One Truth Prevails provides challenging puzzles and hours of entertaining gameplay for a young audience. The game has been developed with manga style cartoon animation and is the first anime police investigation game for kids on the Nintendo Wii. Case Closed: One Truth Prevails will be available in 2009 from Nobilis and Ascaron Entertainment.

Packed with mini games and spy gadgets, including a solar powered skateboard and wrist watch stun gun, players guide child detective Conan as he investigates crime scenes and pieces together evidence to catch criminals. The Wii remote is used to move the young detective, examine clues from all angles and take part in mini games, including‘Super Hero Arcade Battles’ and‘1vs.1 Football’.

Case Closed, also known as Detective Conan, is one of Japan’s most successful anime series. It follows the adventures of Shichi Kudo, a prodigious young detective injected with a fatal drug, which instead of killing him transformed his body into that of a seven year old. Under his new pseudonym Conan Edogawa, an elementary school student, Shichi investigates the secret organisation that drugged him in order to bring the biggest criminal of the time to justice.

Case Closed: One Truth Prevails will be released on Nintendo Wii in 2009 by Nobilis and Ascaron Entertainment.
