Case Closed: One Truth Prevails is a new anime/manga style police investigation game for the Nintendo Wii due for release on 1st May 2009 from Nobilis and Ascaron Entertainment. Case Closed, also known as Detective Conan, is a successful anime series from Japan and is now coming to the Nintendo Wii.
In Case Closed: One Truth Prevails the lead character is 17 year old Shichi Kudo, a very intuitive high school detective, well known in Japan as a modern day Sherlock Holmes. Shichi is on a mission to infiltrate a secret group known as the Black Organisation when he is drugged with a poison that was meant to kill him, but instead transforms him into a seven year old boy. In his new body, Shichi adopts the alias Conan Edogawa and pretends to be a child whilst continuing to secretly solve cases.
Players can use a number of special detective tools that feature in the Japanese TV series of Case Closed, including a voice changing bow tie and a solar powered skateboard. The Wii remote is used to touch or manipulate objects and also can also be used as a magnifying glass when players lead Shichi undercover to investigate crime scenes and search for clues.
Providing fun and challenges for a young audience, Case Closed: One Truth Prevails will be released on Nintendo Wii on 1st May 2009 by Nobilis and Ascaron Entertainment.
