Famicom Detective Club Part II: The Girl in the Back (JPJapanese: ファミコン探偵倶楽部PartII うしろに立つ少女
Romaji: Famicom Tantei Club Part II: Ushiro Ni Tatsu Shoujo
Fan Translation: Famicom Detective Club Part II: The Girl in the Back)is a video game released on the Famicom Disk System in 1989. It was created by Nintendo and is highly text based, surprising for such an early video game. The game has been re-released a total of three times as of yet, the consoles including the Super Famicom, Game Boy Advance, and the Wii and 3DSVirtual Console. Sadly, the game has yet to be released outside of Japan. The FDS version featured two discs that were released at different times.
As the name implies, the game is the second game in the Famicom Detective Club series, though despite this it is in fact a prequel to the original, titled Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir. The sequel, or rather prequel, is more popular than the original, which was also released on the console.
The game's Famicom Mini re-release (the Japanese equivalent to America and Europe's NES Classics series), which was released for the Game Boy Advance in Japan only, was the first Nintendo published title that was rated ages 15+, which was decided upon CERO due to the game's murder and smoking. This is of course surprising for a video game released on the Famicom.
In the game, the player is required to solve two separate mysteries. The objective is the same in all versions, as is the plot. The first involves a murder case that deals with a young girl, while the other is a murder involving an older person. The player will be able to complete the game by going through and choosing the correct set of commands, which are discussions with other people.
