Case descriptions are broken down into four parts: a brief, non-spoiler description; a rough, spoilery play by play of how the case goes down in the game; a walkthrough from the "villain's" point of view of how the crime was committed in the first place; a full script (where available).

The "walkthroughs" for the GS4 cases are just that: they're the case descriptions, but included are instructions on how to progress through the game (if you're trying to play it despite not knowing Japanese).  As far as I know there is no English translation available for the game yet.

Clinking on links in this section will lead you to SPOILERS.  Be careful!
