This was expected given the official site's planned update date, but Famitsu has made it official - DGS2 will be featured in this week's issue
. Pictured in the preview above is a new piece of background art that seems to depict a certain tower that was under construction in DGS1...
The article promises new information, including a reference to a certain "cursed room for rent" (most likely Souseki's from DGS1-4 going by the pair of DGS1 screenshots provided). Two editors from Famitsu will also be providing their "joint reasoning" about what may happen in the game (e.g. speculation).Update:
Famitsu leaks are out (though not scans). It sounds like there's not a ton of news in the issue, but:
- Takumi is the game's director (of course) and Eshiro is the producer.
- The story will again take place in both England and Japan.
- The World's Fair mentioned in DGS1 will play a key part in the story, as well as the aforementioned "cursed room for rent" and the scene of Susato visiting a grave seen in the trailers.
- The mysteries from the first game will be resolved as well as new plot threads.
- Development is at about 35%.
Full scans below - be warned, they're huge:
The fulls scans show screens of Ryuunosuke, Susato, Holmes, and Gregson investigating an apartment where a case took place. Going by the decor, it appears to belong to the blonde-wigged actor who made a cameo in DGS1-4. The scans also allude to a letter from Susato to Ryuunosuke discussing a certain case that she had been hiding from him - and a new case that the letter sets off.Update 3:
Official art of Ryuunosuke and official summary from the DGS2 site:
The end of the 19th century. The last and greatest World's Fair of the 19th century is due to open in the English capital, London. But beneath the surface of this symbol of industry, a shadowy web of connections beckons another case. A tremendous story linking Japan and England once again begins to move. The curtain rises on the second act of Ryuunosuke Naruhodou's grand courtroom drama!

Hey! My current life situation is [low-level internal screaming], so I may be slow to respond to things. Thanks for understanding!
If there was such a thing as the "Wooster Seal of Approval
", this post
would get it.
