Review: Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of the Dusk

September 30, 2018 1 min read

One of the blessings of the Nintendo DS was that it gave several Japanese exclusive franchises their first taste of international fame. The Starfy series made its debut in the west on the DS in 2008, six years after it had already found its footing in Japan. The Glory of Heracles had been popular in Japan since 1987 before finally heading out west on the DS. 

Then there is the Jake Hunter franchise. This detective adventure series was kicking around Japan for nearly two decades before it was finally given a chance to reach a larger audience. When it did, it made a terrible debut with Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles. Arc System Works tried again a year later with Jake Hunter: Memories of the Past, a more fitting outing for one of gaming's most storied detectives. It was alright, not the best but not the worst; the exact sentiment I'd use to describe Ghost of the Dusk.
