Nintendo Media | First Project Hacker DS Screens & Info

By Adam Riley 30.04.2006 11

When Nintendo announced that Cing was working on a game called Another Code for the Nintendo DS ('Trace Memory' in the US), many wondered just how good it would be. However, it turned out to be a very absorbing experience and word from Cing is that another version is currently in the offing.

However, in the meantime we have Nintendo's own spin on that adventure genre. It has enrolled Red Entertainment to bring Project Hacker to the DS, with some believing it could be a spiritual successor to the Detective Hack games on the Famicom during the 1980s.

Players take control of a detective called Satoru who is a member of a group titled 'GIS'. He must use his hacking and data-processing skills to help investigate any cyber crimes that are happening. Therefore, gamers are in charge of aiding his quest by solving puzzles, correcting programmes, uncovering passwords, and so on. This is all done by using the touch-screen for instant hands-on action.

Currently still set for a vague '2006' release in Japan, given the success of similar games in the West, this could definitely be picked up...

Stay tuned for more!

Does sound pretty intresting.

looks boring, all you do is solve lots of puzzles...


You found the word nipple! And you love touching them!

Looks similar to Phoenix Wright, i'm liking it Smilie

I HERD U LIEK TEH MUDKIPZ?

Cap, like Monkey says (Monkey does...hehe Smilie), it's similar to Phoenix Wright and I reckon it'll also be like Another Code...so it'll be the scenario, atmosphere and charm of the game that will likely win you over. You could say 'Pah, Mario? All you do is jump all the time!!'

But you wouldn't say that, would you? :alien:

Well if is like Phoenix Wright then I'll check it out but I probably won't, unless it has ubertastical gameplay! Which it probably won't. Smilie

If it was some random Third Party then I'd be a little more hesitant, but with Nintendo overseeing Red Entertainment's work, then I'm all eyes...unless it doesn't get announced for the US... Smilie

By the way, this is RE's first Nintendo game. Previously it's worked on Gungrave for the PS2 and is working on Far East of Eden Ziria - Tales from Distant Jipang for the XBOX 360 Smilie

I like the look of it but details seem pretty vague. I'll wait until more information is available before I pass judgement.

It looks like it'll be quite good, but we need more details pronto Ninty!

Yeah, details are still vague...I don't have a contact that can translate the full original Japanese scan... Smilie
