A while ago we told you about a new title being developed by Arc System Works, Chase: Unsolved Cases Investigation Division – Distant Memories, which was being led by Taisuke Kanasaki and was employing the talents of multiple staff from the now shuttered CiNG studio. They're well known for narrative-driven titles on the DS in particular, including the likes of Trace Memory, Hotel Dusk: Room 215 and Last Window: The Secret of Cape West.

The new title has a similar look to the latter two of those, and pleasingly Aksys has now confirmed that it'll be localising the release as Chase: Cold Case Investigations - Distant Memories, with the following snap from a panel at Anime Expo.

That Fall arrival applies to North America, of course, though hopefully this will make its way to Europe.

The pedigree of those involved and the style of the title certainly caught our eye when it emerged in the Japanese press earlier in the year, so we're pleased it's coming to the West. A couple of screenshots are below for your perusal; let us know what you think in the comments.
