Arc System Works began streaming a teaser trailer for its Daedalus: The Awakening of Golden Jazz adventure game on Thursday. The video reveals that the game will ship in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on December 13.
The game is part of the Tantei Jingūji Saburō (Jake Hunter) series. It tells a story related to the title character Saburō Jingūji's childhood in New York City, and features his father Kyōsuke Jingūji.
In addition to the PS4 and Switch releases, Daedalus: The Awakening of Golden Jazz is also slated to launch on Steam.
The game series began in 1987 when Data East released Tantei Jingūji Saburō: Shinjuku Chūō Kōen Satsujin Jiken, the first game in the series, on the Nintendo Famicom. The series has since received various installments on consoles and phones. WorkJam began work on the series after Data East filed for bankruptcy in 2003. Aksys Games localized the Nintendo DS game Tantei Jingūji Saburō DS: Inishie no Kioku as Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles in 2008, and rereleased the game under the title Jake Hunter Detective Story: Memories of the Past in 2009. Aksys Games also released the Nintendo 3DS game Tantei Jingūji Saburō: Ghost of the Dusk as Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of Dusk on September 28.
Arc System Works acquired the rights to the game series from WorkJam in February 2017 and released Tantei Jingūji Saburō: Ghost of the Dusk and Tantei Jingūji Saburō: Prism of Eyes.
