The Mystery Deepens In Possible Hotel Dusk Sequel

Japanese blog Sinobi reports that there are retail listings for a Hotel Dusk sequel for the Nintendo DS titled Last Window: Midnight Promise (Last Window: Mayonaka no Yakusoku).

According to the blog, CING's sequel is set in 1980s Los Angeles and will hit Japanese shelves January 14. A cursory search of Amazon Japan doesn't turn up anything, but Sinobi somehow has box art.

Nintendo doesn't comment on rumours or speculation. However, we can puzzle this out with some simple logic and a basic sense of economics: First, Hotel Dusk did pretty well for itself both in American ratings. Second, it did well for itself in Japanese sales. Conclusion: a sequel two years out would make perfect sense and it might even come Stateside.

Time will tell if we've solved the mystery.

    Oh...My...God...

    Finally!!!! I've wanted this day to come for years.

      Same here. I thoroughly enjoyed the first game, which I felt was probably one of the few in which I felt entirely immersed.

        My favourite game on the DS, by far.

        It was perfect. Except for the lack of replay value, but that happens with all mystery games :P

    Hopefully they get rid of the "scavenger hunt" styled gameplay. That ticked me off so much

    I saw this earlier this morning, figuered i'd only comment when i'm sure i'm awake.
    Freakin' Brilliant. Hotel Dusk has been my favourite DS game, i'll have this pre-ordered as soon as we have a confirmed local date.

    I thoroughly enjoy those games and would like to see more of those story teller mystery journey is great more please.
