Nancy Drew: Alibi in Ashes Trailer

Here's a new trailer for the next Nancy Drew game!



I'll try to get it up on my channel later tonight, when I have free time. For now, let me just say this:
  1. What is the reporter's hair stylist thinking?
  2. There are characters onscreen at 0:26.  Let's make up names for them.
  3. Do you think this will be a scene in the actual game?  When in the game will it occur?  I remember getting excited by one Waverly Academy preview which had all sorts of exciting cutscenes, but when the actual game was released, it turned out most of them were just the opening cutscene.

The reporter, Brenda Carlton,is actually a reporter for the newspaper in the Nancy Drew Files book series.

I'm so excited!!! I think that preview is probably just the opening cut scene. Which is good I guess. I hate it when they show almost EVERY cutscene in the trailer. That just gives everything away.

Hopefully the only comment I'll have after this game is how are they going to top this?!

According to the e-mail I got, Nancy gets booked after following a bad lead. I'm going to guess that you start the game playing as Nancy, and you solve a puzzle or two and all that. Then, after following something or sommeone, you stumble upon something that makes you look guilty. Then they play this cutscene, they re-open with Nancy in jail, and you have to change to one of the other characters to continue. Kinda like in the 5th case of Phoenix Wright T&T, when you switch to Edgeworth for a while, except not really.

Yep, Sparksbet, I bet it'll be like in SSH, where the crime didn't happen until almost halfway though the game. ;)

Those onlookers look fantastic! I hope they're suspects...

The one on the right looks like a L kind of a girl. You know, named something like Laura or Lucy.

The girl in the middle..Hmm, she doesn't look very likeable. She reminds me of Lillian from STFD a little bit. She needs a pointy kind of a name, like Sarah, or Carmen.

The guy on the end doesn't look very likeable either. He reminds me of a Agatha Christy character for some reason. He should be named some Brittish sounding name. Or if not Brittish, his last name should be something ending in "son", like Karlson, or Railson. Something rather rough sounding.

I think it'll be in the new Nancy Drew game. I don't know why but I think it will be.

What'll be in this ND game, Anonymous? :)

The way the cut scene opens, it sounds like Brenda was interviewing Nancy before this cut scene takes place. If that's the case then I'm guessing this is the turning point in the game when the other characters need to solve the mystery to prove Nancy innocent.

This is completely irrelevant to the post, but I was on www.gamestop.com and I came across this advertisement about Skyward Sword and it said the release date was Nov. 20, 2011. If you had previously said this and I hadn't noticed then please ignore my ignorance, but if you haven't and you didn't know, well then there you go.

I would just like to say:

I really love your Nancy Drew Videos. I've watched most of them. I'll even admit that I'll save time sometimes and not even buy the game, and just watch your videos, because you are so FUNNY!

Example:
My mom was telling me to turn down the headphones, and just as I said: It's as soft as it can get (which it was), you opened the note in Message in a Haunted Mansion: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA LEAVE THE MANSION NOW! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! <Screaming really really loudly!) :D
