Nishimura Kyoutarou Mystery Blue Train Satsujin Jiken (西村京太郎・ミステリー ブルートレイン殺人事件? lit. Kyotaro Nishimura · Mystery Blue Train murder case) is an adventure game developed by TOSE for the Famicom, and published only in Japan by [[Irem] in 1989. It is the first game in a series of murder mystery adventure games based on novels by famed Japanese mystery author Kyotaro Nishimura. Along with other similarly themed franchises such as Tantei Jinguuji Saburo and Yamamura Misa Suspense, it invites players to solve the mystery by talking to witnesses and suspects and interacting with the environment to discover who is behind the murder.

Story[edit]

Kyotaro Nishimura's novels tend to focus on murders that occur on or around trains with this game being no exception. A body is found on a Blue Train - the name given to Japanese cross-country sleeper trains, i.e. those built to accommodate sleeping passengers - and the player character is brought in to solve the mystery.
