The series had little to no American presence until 2007, when a NintendoDS remake of the first three installments featuring the character was translated in America as ''Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles''. To put it kindly, it was a BlindIdiotTranslation and it came off as a DarkerAndEdgier rip-off of the ''AceAttorney'' series and a poor one at that, and the chances of it ever catching on in the US seemed poor. Two years later, the three cases were re-released as ''Jake Hunter Detective Story: Memories of the Past'' with much better {{Woolseyism}}-type translations, three additional cases, six SuperDeformed mini-sodes, and a ton of unlockable extras. If you would be at all interested in the games, the 2009 release is the one to get. You'll thank us later.

* RetroUniverse: InvokedTrope. The game takes place fairly closely to the present day, with cell phones and PCs being fairly ubiquitous, but Jake and the other characters look and behave like they're straight out of an old crime novel, with Jake in the revamped translation even using dead phrases like "dollface" and "You're a (real) peach".
