Following the recently-released Zoids Wild: King of Blast, the Switch seems to be getting quite a few interesting anime-inspired exclusive. The latest has just been announced by TMS Entertainment, and it’s Tantei Conan Sukebou Run: Kaitou Kid to Shinpi no Hihou. This translates as “Detective Conan Skateboard Run: Kaito Kid and the Mysterious Treasures.”
As you may have imagined the game is inspired by the Detective Conan manga and anime series and features Conan himself, his skateboard and Kaitou Kuroba, A.K.A. Kaito Kid.
The basic gameplay is all about skateboarding along obstacle courses, Conan can perform a variety of stunts across three areas and thirty stages. Kaito Kid will serve as a further obstacle as he attempts to hinder Conan with his magic tricks.
On the other hand, various familiar friendly characters will make an appearance with ten support skills per character ranging from high jumps to healing, medal gathering, and flight. The original voice actors of Conan and Kaitou Kid will also reprise their roles.
The story features Conan himself as he attempts to protect the three titular mysterious treasures from Kaito Kid’s thieving attempts.
While Detective Conan Skateboard Run: Kaito Kid and the Mysterious Treasures may appear a fairly simple one, it won’t be sold at full price, and it’ll cost 3,500 yen (just north of $31), and it’ll be distributed exclusively via the Nintendo eShop. It’s purely single-player and it’ll release in April in Japan.
The game will come out more or less at the same time as a brand new Detective Conan theatrical anime movie, which will debut in Japan on April 12.
Of course, no western release date has been announced for now, but you can enjoy the first trailer and screenshots below.
