Sometimes the 3DS eShop can deliver some surprise gems, and one of these in 2016 was Parascientific Escape Cruise in the Distant Seas; it has an interesting story, while blending escape room-style gameplay with a sense of adventure. We were rather taken with it in our review, in any case.

The good news is that CIRCLE Entertainment is publishing its follow-up, Parascientific Escape: Gear Detective this week in North America, with a US price of $5; no European date has been given quite yet. As you can see in the trailer and blurb below it's looking to maintain the positive momentum of the original.

The story follows Detective Kyosuke Ayana, who has the ability named chronokinesis which allows him to look back in time in a limited field of view, for up to 5 days back. Detective Ayana is hired to find a serial killer threatening the quiet neighborhood of Camellia Hills - but soon finds himself in much bigger trouble as he investigates the crime scenes.

Are you tempted to check this out when it arrives on the 3DS eShop?
