Seeing as how the previous Nancy Drew on the Nintendo DS was a short game and not really an adventure game, this one probably will not be, either. But the description sounds like it might.
Majesco announced Nancy Drew: The Mystery of the Clue Bender Society, developed by Gorilla Systems, the follow up to last year's The Deadly Secret of Olde World Park offering mystery buffs and Nancy Drew fans a fresh interactive caper with a wealth of new features.
"The Nancy Drew brand is marked by a distinctive 'snowballing' of suspects, clues and danger as the teen detective works to solve the deepening mystery," said Gui Karyo, Executive Vice President of Operations, Majesco. "Nancy Drew: The Mystery of the Clue Bender Society delivers this signature intrigue while incorporating a host of compelling new interactive features that augment the Touch Screen experience."
The Clue Bender Society, a group of the world's greatest detectives, is opening up its roster to one new member. Nancy Drew is among three exceptional candidates that could make the cut if she can solve a series of challenges before the others. But the test becomes real when a secret tome containing the solutions to history's greatest mysteries goes missing, and the Society turns to Nancy and the other applicants to help recover the books.
New feature highlights :
* Unraveling nine fresh chapters and completing progressively difficult tasks including new fingerprint retrieval and identification, trailing suspects, interrogations, and even snowmobiling and boating.
* Using the Touch Screen to: play new contextual detective games, and access the Suspect File and map feature to ensure Nancy never loses the trail.
* Using the DS microphone to discover hidden clues.
* Monitoring Nancy's cell phone to keep up with all the breaking information.
Nancy Drew: The Mystery of the Clue Bender Society is expected to launch this summer.
