Marlon’s Mystery: The darkside of crime is a captivating detective game that’s coming to the Nintendo Switch and Steam on May 25. Want to be a sleuth? In the game players can test their investigative skills by solving riddles and uncovering hidden objects. You will follow Abby Marlon and her apprentice, Jared Evans, as they are recruited by the Taylor family to investigate a murder case involving the youngest daughter, Eleanor, who has murdered her father and gotten away with the inheritance money.
To find Eleanor, Abby, and Jared must solve the mystery surrounding the family by travelling through various locations. Abby is a young woman with a past that has strengthened her sense of justice, and she has a sensitivity to art and drawing that helps her reflect on the facts before her. Jared is Abby’s apprentice who takes notes of everything others say to remember all the events of a case.
You can pre-order the game now in the eShop at a 10% discount until May 25th.

To do so, Mimi will revisit her childhood memories and reconnect with the little girl who marvelled at everything. Dordogne is expected on June 13, and might make the jump to the Switch at a later time.
