Hello Everyone, its time for Hamu-chan’s Japanese Import game chat! I am very excited to introduce this game today. This DS game “????????????????””Detective Conan & Kindaichi Case Files: The Meeting of the Two Famous Detectives”, is an amazing collaboration between Conan and Kindaichi. Some people who like anime may know ” Detective Conan” (Meitantei Conan)” Conan is a detective manga series written by Gosho Aoyama.  The series has been going since 1994 in the weekly magazine Shonen Sunday. To avoid copyright issues with the name Detective Conan, the America series was released renamed as “Case Closed.” There have also been 69 manga book published as of August 2010. The story of Conan is about a 17 year old young high school detective boy, Kudo Shinichi (translated with Jimmy Kudo), who was inadvertently transformed into a child after being poisoned.

The other famous detective manga character is named Kindaichi Hajime from the “Kindaichi case files” written by Yozaburo Kanari or Seimaru Amagi (depending on the series) and illustrated by Fumiya Sato. This series started in the Weekly Shonen Magazine in 1992 which is one of the earliest works in the mystery manga genre. Hajime is a high school student who solves crime with the pride of his grandfather who is a famous (fictional) private detective Kindaichi Kousuke.

Conan meets Kindaichi

Now in this game, Detective Conan & Kindaichi meet together on the DS. Both of them meet on this island named “Yu-yami jima.” Conan came to the island to research about the rumour of Kami Kakushi- the spirited away (missing people.) Kindaichi received a mysterious letter from a former classmate saying “Please help my island. Something scary and awfully tragic will happen soon”. Different reasons brought them to this island, however many mysterious things are waiting for them. Not to far from the beginning, Kindaichi has been spirited away to another unknown island. Since it’s a mystery game, murders seem to occur often. The former classmate was the first victim. Conan and Kindaichi only meet face to face in the very beginning (just passing by) and at the end. However they are able to talk to each other using Conan’s special detective badge and exchange information to try to find the murderer. As they exchange information they think the island where Kindaichi is now seems like Yu-yami jima from 25 yeas ago. Conan gathers information of the crime from 25 years ago, which is happening now in Kindaichi’s time.  Reproducing the crime, Conan gets involved with terrorist who is bombing places in the island. In the last chapter you can choose to play Conan or Kindaichi to find the ending.

I love both of these manga series. Also, I owned every Kindaichi manga series, watched the anime and the dramas. I also have watched a good number of Conan anime, manga and all of the movies. They have had their own games before but this DS game is a dream tag team for me.  I love the story and everytime when they talk and have some action together I have to say “oh~” and “Wow”.

    I love Detective Conan- can’t bring myself to read Kindaichi Files because of the art. Sorry, all Kindaichi fans, I definitely will always favor Conan above all others.
