The series had little to no American presence until 2008, when a UsefulNotes/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 ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series and a poor one at that, and the chances of it ever catching on in the US seemed poor. One year 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.

The story stars Jake Hunter, a heavy-smoking hard-boiled big city detective who runs his agency in the big city of Shinjuku, Tokyo ([[CulturalTranslation Aspicio, USA]] in the translated version.) Recurring supporting characters include his DeadpanSnarker secretary Yulia Marks, jovial mustachioed police inspector Scott Kingsley, LabRat Samantha Martin, NeighbourhoodFriendlyGangsters Vincent Drago and Don Vitore, and Ryo Hsu, a BadAss Chinese foreign police agent.
