Seek and Solve: Mystery Case Files Comes to Nintendo DS
Popular Franchise Makes its Portable Debut with Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir
REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– There’s a mystery afoot, and only someone with a keen eye and attention to detail can solve it. Today’s launch of Mystery Case Files™: MillionHeir™ brings a new style of puzzle-solving adventure game to the portable Nintendo DS™. The game begins with instant intrigue: Eccentric millionaire Phil T. Rich has disappeared and only you – the Master Detective – can find him. Players progress through an interactive detective story, visiting more than 30 richly illustrated environments to find more than 1,000 cleverly hidden objects in an effort to find the rightful heir to Phil T. Rich’s fortune.
“Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir is an interactive seek-and-solve scavenger hunt that everyone can enjoy,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “The compelling story paired with the enchanting graphics and unique seek-and-solve style of game play will appeal to hard-core gamers, casual gamers and franchise fans alike.”
Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir is part of the popular Big Fish Games franchise. This new mystery was developed exclusively for Nintendo DS.
“Our partnership with Nintendo is very exciting. The game play in Mystery Case Files is perfectly suited for the touch screen,” said Patrick Wylie, Big Fish Games’ vice president of Studios. “Just tap it with the stylus to find objects, rub it to brush dust off of evidence or use the microphone to clear cobwebs.”
Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir is a fun addition to family game night. Using multiplayer modes, players can challenge up to three Nintendo DS owners to see who can find the most objects or work cooperatively to solve a puzzle.
To top off a “MillionHeir” look, players may want to pick up the newly released Metallic Silver-colored Nintendo DS.
Nintendo has even more good news for fans of puzzles, games and mysteries. Today Nintendo will re-release both Clubhouse Games™ and Hotel Dusk: Room 215™ for Nintendo DS. Clubhouse Games is a collection of more than 20 classics, like chess, poker and darts. Up to eight players can join in on the action. For some grittier action, check into Hotel Dusk: Room 215, a film noir-type detective story that puts players in the middle of the novel. Players even hold their Nintendo DS systems sideways like a book. Engage in conversations and unravel the clues until you figure out what really happened in Room 215.
