The Hotel Dusk sequel came out in Japan in January but a UK release was put into doubt when reports of of CiNG filing for bankruptcy circulated.

However, Nintendo will be releasing the DS adventure in just over two month's time. As with Hotel Dusk, you have to hold your DS vertically as if it were a book as you follow Karl Hyde on his journey to uncover the mystery of his father's death.

He was a policeman but he's now a salesman who resides in Los Angeles in 1980. At the beginning of the game, Kyle wakes up inside his car, and calls his employers Red Crown to find out that he has been fired. He is also up for eviction from his his flat if he doesn't pay up $400.

Later on, he finds a letter telling him to find a mysterious object called the Red Star, which is inside the Cape West apartment building, due to be demolished in a month's time. Once inside, Kyle starts to think this building might be related to his father's death and decides to figure out the mystery before Cape West is demolished.

    Yes yes yes yes YES! Best news I've heard for ages! It's brilliant that we get Cing's last game here, just a shame that it is their last one...

    So happy that it's being released! It's a pity what happened to Cing though as i'm sure they had many more great ideas. At least we get to play their last great game- can't wait!

    Yesssss. This is epic news. I really thought we'd never see this in the UK.

    It's a shame they changed the subtitle from "Midnight Promise" to "The Secret of Cape West". You can see how they changed it to fit in with the UK audience (like they put that daft "read and solve like a mystery novel" sticker on Another Code R over here to draw in a few people who wouldn't otherwise have a clue what it was about). But that's a very very minor complaint, I'm just happy we're getting the translated version!
