Famicom Detective Club Part II: The Girl Who Stands Behind (JP) is a video game released on the Famicom Disk System in 1989. It was created by Nintendo and is highly text based, surprising for such an early video game. The game has been re-released a total of three times as of yet, the consoles including the Super Famicom, Game Boy Advance (as Famicom Mini Series: Famicom Detective Club Part II: The Girl Who Stands Behind), and the Wii and 3DS Virtual Console. Sadly, the game has yet to be released outside of Japan. The FDS version featured two discs that were released at different times.
As the name implies, the game is the second game in the Famicom Detective Club series, though despite this it is in fact a prequel to the original, titled Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir. The sequel, or rather prequel, is more popular than the original, which was also released on the console.
The game's Famicom Mini re-release (the Japanese equivalent to America and Europe's NES Classics series), which was released for the Game Boy Advance in Japan only, was the first Nintendo published title that was rated ages 15+, which was decided upon CERO due to the game's murder and smoking. This is of course surprising for a video game released on the Famicom.
On February 17, 2021, an enhanced remake of the game as well as its first part were announced on Nintendo Direct for release on the Nintendo Switch on May 14 of the same year, with the remakes also being the first instance to have an overseas release, as well as the first time this specific game has had a reference in overseas Nintendo media since Ayumi Tachibana's cameo in Super Mario Maker.
In the game, the player is required to solve two separate mysteries. The objective is the same in all the versions, as is the plot. The first involves a murder case that deals with a young girl, while the other is a murder involving an older person. The player will be able to complete the game by going through and choosing the correct set of commands, which are discussions with other people.
