The Famicom Detective Club games are a visual novel series that were previously only available on the Family Computer System in Japan. The first game, Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir, sees the player guide a young detective suffering from amnesia, who must solve the mystery of the Ayashiro family heir in order to regain their memories. The sequel, Famicom Detective Club: The Girl who Stand Behind follows a young detective trying to solve the mystery of a schoolgirl's murder, who was herself trying to solve a ghost story. Both games are similarly constructed to the Phoenix Wright games, where the player must investigate several locations and look for clues, while interviewing anyone who may have some information on what happened.
