Lupin the 3rd for the Nintendo DS announced

Looks like an assortment of puzzles and brainteasers a la Professor Layton more than a PS2-esque action-adventure game.

Title is something like "Lupin the Third: Greatest Brain Challenge in History"

Neat. Hopefully my local game shop can import it. Or maybe we'll get lucky, and Namdai or Atlus will release it here. Ok, I twittered them Atlus and NIS[the Sakura Wars V company]; we'll see who bites first.

Hmmm, I wonder if it'll be possible for someone who doesn't know Japanese to be able to play a game like this.

As long as there aren't any word puzzles, probably.

If only there was a way that WE the fans, could demand that NamcoBandai release this game into the states. This looks really fun, I may have to get it even though I don't know any Japanese.

ultimate: Try Atlus and/or NIS. They're more willing to take chances on these games here than companies like Namdai.

Awesome.  I'll be honest after hearing that Tatsunuko vs Capcom was coming to the states I'm ready to believe anything can happen when it comes to games being released abroad (Granted there was a demand for that game).  They could have cool lock picking mini-games on a DS too.

This sounds exciting. I want it. :^U'

I'm actually surprised at the lack of Lupin videogames in Japan... Maybe it's just me, but it always seemed to me that Lupin would be greatly utilized in any sort of adventure game. I've never played any of the games released thus far, so I may be wrong about it, but it just seems like it would be a lot of fun.  :-\

Looks pretty neat.  I may pick it up myself if it doesn't require any knowledge of Japanese to beat.
Maybe it's just me, but it always seemed to me that Lupin would be greatly utilized in any sort of adventure game.
Y'know, I've thought about this myself.  Lupin and Co. would be well suited to a point-and-click adventure game.  With maybe a few action mini-games?

Free demo which totally requires you to know Japanese.  :'( If you click on "characters", you can get some sample voices.

The demo wasn't that hard to figure out, really. I already knew that one of the characters was in Lupin's name (I think it was "sei" or something, as in "Rupan Sansei") and he's Lupin the 3rd, so I knew it meant 3. I pretty much guessed from there.
