Famicom Detective Club is a pair of visual novels for people new to the genre .
Visual novels aren’t exactly the most popular game genre here in the United States, which is why it was such a surprise when Nintendo announced that the two Famicom Detective Club games were coming to Switch, completely remade. The games originally came out in 1988 and 1989 on the Famicom Disc System. For the record, that’s before some Engadget staffers were born, on a Japan-exclusive console that was discontinued a year later. So this is quite a deep cut from the Nintendo archives, one that really highlights the Switch’s strength as a home for quirky and intimate titles.
