Jake Hunter, known in Japan as Tantei Jingūji Saburō (探偵神宮寺三郎?, Detective Saburō Jingūji) is a mystery-adventure game series originally developed by Data East in 1987, and later developed by WorkJam and other companies.
Despite its popularity in Japan, only one of its games have been released overseas: Tantei Jingūji Saburō DS: Inishie no Kioku was retitled and released in North America on June 11, 2008 by Aksys Games as Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles. The game was rereleased on May 26, 2009 as Jake Hunter Detective Story: Memories of the Past, which contains the original three cases with new translations to improve the original game content, plus three new cases, and a large number of unlockables including comics.
Jake investigates a burglary at a mansion, while Yulia searches for the home of a young boy. Both cases seemed simple, until they become one.
