Advert & Screens for Nintendo

Nintendo has revealed its TV advertising campaign for its forthcoming new DS release, Last Window: The Secret of Cape West. From developer CiNG, the same team behind Another Code for DS and Wii, The Secret of Cape West is the direct sequel to the immensely popular detective thriller Hotel Dusk: Room 215.

The video clip can be viewed here, whilst more details on the game can be found either below or in Cubed3's official UK review:

Love film noir? Love mystery novels, but want influence over the plot? Get your detective head on for Last Window: The Secret of Cape West, which launches exclusively on the Nintendo DS family of consoles on 17th September 2010. Those familiar with Hotel Dusk: Room 215 on Nintendo DS will remember Kyle Hyde - the dark and mysterious character who now returns in Last Window: The Secret of Cape West for another quest to discover the truth. Last Window is a thrilling and challenging interactive novel packed with hidden mysteries that players must unravel one piece at a time. Just like a great book, players will not only need to hold the Nintendo DS vertically, they will find the ever-twisting storyline so captivating they will not want to put it down.

That, however, is where the similarities end; here you can actually influence how the story develops! Decisions you make throughout the game will alter Kyle’s journey and result in different outcomes in the storyline. Every time the player completes a chapter of the in-game novel Last Window, this episode is adapted into text form to be read at anytime, meaning you not only get to enjoy the captivating gameplay, but a great novel at the same time. The novel also acts as a hint section, directing players to certain characters should they have missed a clue or conversation.

Set in Los Angeles in 1980, a year after the events in Hotel Dusk: Room 215, the story follows the investigation of Kyle Hyde, a former police officer, as he attempts to solve a mystery involving his father's murder and secretive past. Knowledge of Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is not essential for you to help Kyle crack the mystery behind Cape West, the former hotel which is now his apartment building.

With beautifully sketched, fully rendered 3D environments, plus easy-to-use touch screen controls for navigating environments and controlling characters, it is easy to lose yourself in this story. You won’t be prompted, but why not try using the Nintendo DS in-built microphone to solve some of the mysteries? Jazz fans will also be pleased hear that Kyle shares your passion ��" enjoy his favourite music on the Juke Box at any time you like. While this game is packed with clues, this game will test the keenest puzzle solver. Think Professor Layton puzzle solving, immersed within a great and rich film noir-esque story... and make sure you look out for extra clues in your game packaging manual...


Be sure to check out the full Cubed3 review of Last Window: The Secret of Cape West to see why it received a thoroughly deserved 9/10 final score. Additionally, screenshots and artwork have been added to the game's media folder.

Will European readers be rushing out to pick up Last Window this coming Friday, and are US gamers tempted to import on Day One?
