The second Keiji J.B. Harold no Jikenbo game to come to Switch.

Keiji J.B. Harold no Jikenbo: Manhattan Requiem

Mebius will release Manhattan Requiem, the second entry in the Keiji J.B. Harold no Jikenbo visual novel series, for Switch via the Nintendo eShop in Japan on October 26 for 990 yen, the company announced.

Here’s an overview of the game, via VNDB:

24 year old pianist Sarah Shields was found dead after falling from the 25th floor of her apartment window. The cause of death was a fractured skull from the horrific impact. With no evidence of foul play, an act of suicide was the best explanation – but J.B. Harold thinks otherwise. Having received a letter from Sarah beforehand, the famous detective heads towards New York city to find the truth.

Manhattan Requiem, which first launched for PC-88 in 1987, is the second entry in the Keiji J.B. Harold no Jikenbo series to be released for Switch. The first entry, Murder Club, which first launched for PC-88 in 1986, was released for Switch in August for 864 yen.
