Does that confirm that it's going to be two individual releases, rather than a combined remake, then? I wonder if they'll release simultaneously.
I was slightly mistaken in an earlier post. While the most recent issue of Nintendo Dream does not have any new information on the remakes, Famicom Detective Club does make an appearance in their anticipated game poll.

As you can see, highlighted in blue, the remake(s) rank #12, totalling 3.3% of the vote and are new to the list this issue. Of course, Pokémon leads the pack with over 43% of readers listing it as their most wanted game. An interesting note is that the popular, formerly Japanese-exclusive, Seiken no Densetu 3 remake is only .1% higher on this list. We should keep an eye on how these two particular games fare later on after the more heavily anticipated titles release. Additionally, we get a snapshot of already-seen footage with a caption.

The caption reads “It looks fun to look for parts that are arranged in a modern way, such as props.” As already said, this screenshot is based on already-previewed gameplay. The options, similar to the original game, read:

I'll continue covering any new information that pops up here in Japan.
I transcribed and interpreted the announcement trailer for the September Nintendo Direct. I also finished filming and editing "Famicom Detective Club – Nintendo Switch Remake Coming to the West? 「ファミコン探偵倶楽部」外国の発売？"
In the video, I present my localized announcement trailer with an English over-dub, additional English subtitles, and screen translations. I also provide supplementary material from various Japanese publications as well as development details about the original games. Lastly, I explore topics such as a western release, remake development information and Japanese reactions. I do not discuss the topic of Ayumi's potential inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, however, and only mention it as a point of potential future discussion, instead opting to promote the current remakes of the game.
The video is partially in Japanese, though this is primarily for the intro of the video. Original gameplay and live demonstration using a Famicom Disk System as well as the GBA remakes is given. Brief attention is given to the Satellaview. The video will be uploaded within a few days.
Trailer transcription and interpretation:
Hello everyone. I’m Sakamoto from Nintendo.
You may know of a certain adventure game released on the Famicom Disk System in 1988. That’s right – Famicom Detective Club.
At the time, we wanted to create a new adventure game, so we used text adventure game mechanics to create a visual novel-like game.
We are excited to announce the two Famicom Detective Club games are being remade for the Nintendo Switch.
Our concept is to create an enjoyable, modern adventure game with the taste of the original.
MAGES, with their reputation for developing adventure games, and Nintendo staff, including members from the original development team, as well as myself, are working together on this project.
In-game dialogue will be fully voiced.
You can expect the kind of quality MAGES is known for when Famicom Detective Club is finally released.
Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir and Famicom Detective Club: The Girl Standing in the Back will be released sometime in 2020.
Here's the most lame preview I can give of my upcoming video analysis of the state of Famicom Detective Club.
Below is the original end card of the trailer...

Woah, looking beautiful with that editing. It looks close to official.I have the video rendering now. Will be up soon. Easily the most difficult part was creating the mask and animating the birds as well as the mist in the background for the penultimate shot. It took an entire day of editing for that alone. I'll make another post when the video has uploaded, so please look forward to it soon.
This is the original penultimate shot.

This is my pre-mask shot (unfinished), with the birds filtered out.

Thank you for your patience everyone. Last minute, I decided to change the localization style of "Famicom Detective Club" to "Nintendo Detective Club," as after careful consideration, I believe that is how it would truly be localized. Until this alteration has been made across the more extensive video, I invite you to watch my localized trailer for Famicom Detective Club [Nintendo Direct 2019.9.5]. Please understand, this is my first rendered draft, and so there may be some other alterations in the final version. Please enjoy.

Nah, Commamd is actually just the protagonist's new canon name. It's Detective Commamd!Yikes. I hope Nintendo fixes that up before release. That looks bad.
Yeah, I guess I've just been taking Sakurai's claim about Smash's popularity being so great these days, that they could 'get away' with things they normally wouldn't have during the early days of the series at face value somewhat.I am with fogbadge, it is a mixed bag.
I still have my doubts on us getting any retros as DLC fighters, but I guess Ayumi has the edge with her upcoming remakes.
The bigger issue if he will take the risk since he felt strongly for her lack of familiarity in the West at the time of Melee.
If it's just Sakurai's choice, I can see him wanting to put character he'd considered but already turned down because this is the Ultimate Smash.So... what do you all think about Sakurai pretty much confirming more characters (than who we expect, at least) have a chance?
I'll believe it when I see it. Sakurai say's alot of conflicting stuff depending on the moment. Ashley would have been a playable fighter along time ago if he meant what he says. I believe he is only saying this because of releasing Byleth after getting enormous backlash from Corrins inclusion. It's an excuse. If Steve or Waluigi become playable fighters he'll back-peddle and insist on widespread recognition is crucial.So... what do you all think about Sakurai pretty much confirming more characters (than who we expect, at least) have a chance?
Sorry, my PC acted up. Could a mod or someone delete these extra messages?
inkling got in due to the large success and great popularity of splatoon, not solely to have a unique fighterI'll believe it when I see it.

Making Ayumi a Playable fighter will require a huge backbone that Sakurai and Nintendo have sorely lacked since Iwata died.
Most of the new none-echo fighters for ultimate have PRIMARILY either been included because they recently had a hit game in their series (Byleth and Joker) or were in high demand with smash's loud dude-bro nerds (Banjo, K. Rool, Simon etc.) or are from massively large Series (Incineroar, Hero). The only two characters I can think of that seem to have been included primarily due to being unique and fun fighters is Inkling and Pirahanna Plant.
THIS. There is really no excuse to not put her in the roster especially if they bring the Famicom Detective Club remake over here. I honestly see putting a Japanese exclusive character/IP into the roster as a healthy thing as it would raise awareness for said franchise and it would get some well deserve recognition in the west and outside of Japan in general. This is one of the reasons why I want Goemon in Smash as a playable character so badly because if he got it, my favorite franchise Ganbare Goemon/Mystical Ninja will finally get the recognition it rightfully deserves in the west.Making Ayumi a Playable fighter will require a huge backbone that Sakurai and Nintendo have sorely lacked since Iwata died.
That seems reasonable. The release for New Horizons is coming ever closer, and we've still got yet to get much new information for that. So a direct needs to happen ASAP. Even if the announcement is Japan-only, it'd be the ideal time to show the DC remake's release date.Nintendo once again confirms that Famicom Detective Club Switch is coming this year in a recent business report.
I’m predicting the summer will be its Japanese release date since Spring seem pretty stacked for the year.
Imagine not knowing the names of the two (me and Denox) who started Operation Tachibana. But that is fine, we are now starting the trend of these videos if it would help get our movement kickstarted.who?
in my defence i know you by your names on here, and ive been avoiding youtube for a wee while nowImagine not knowing the names of the two (me and Denox) who started Operation Tachibana. But that is fine, we are now starting the trend of these videos if it would help get our movement kickstarted.
I asked this before in another thread (don't remember which one) but out of curiosity did Sakurai actually say that a character needs to be fun to play not just recognizable I mean as much as I want to believe it, however I also wondered if he actually said that in the Japanese demonstration too.So... what do you all think about Sakurai pretty much confirming more characters (than who we expect, at least) have a chance?

well sakurai isnt always consistent so it may not matterI asked this before in another thread (don't remember which one) but out of curiosity did Sakurai actually say that a character needs to be fun to play not just recognizable I mean as much as I want to believe it, however I also wondered if he actually said that in the Japanese demonstration too.
Cool! I'm very curious to hear about Famicom Detective Club's history in the podcast. I'll try to check it out later or tomorrow.
