Nishimura Kyoutarou Mystery: Super Express Satsujin Jiken

An Irem developed adventure game that is a sequel to the previous Nishimura Kyoutarou Mystery game, Blue Train Satsujin Jiken.


Nishimura Kyoutarou Mystery: Super Express Satsujin Jiken ("Kyoutarou Nishimura Mystery: Super Express Murder Case") is the second of Irem's Famicom detective adventure games based on the works of mystery writer Kyoutarou Nishimura, following 1989's Nishimura Kyoutarou Mystery: Blue Train Satsujin Jiken.

As with that game, and many of Kyoutarou Nishimura's stories, Super Express Satsujin Jiken is based around a murder on a train: in this case the famous Shinkansen, or "bullet train". It uses the same gameplay model seen in other Famicom adventure games where the player is given a list of operative words through which to interact with scenes and talk to NPCs, and the story progresses only once the player has interacted with the right hotspots in the correct way.
