Description

"Eve Zero" is a prequel to the famous detective/mystery adventure Eve Burst Error.
You control once again the two main heroes of the series: the witty and womanizing private investigator Kojiroh Amagi, and the beautiful red-haired secret agent Marina Hojo. The events of the game take place shortly before those of "Eve Burst Error". Kojiroh is working at Katsuragi Detective Office together with his girlfriend Yayoi. Dr. Nishina, the head of a genetic research facility, hires Kojiroh to investigate the disappearance of his son Shin. At the same time, Marina receives an assignment from her boss Kono, which involves watching over a representative of an American company. As in all EVE games, the two stories appear unrelated in the beginning and are gradually linked together later in the game.

Ever wondered what was Marina's previous assignment, with whom did Kyoko Himuro work before, or what exactly happened to Genzaburo Katsuragi when he was still the chief of Katsuragi Detective Office? Cared to know more about the appealing protagonist, Kojiroh Amagi? "Eve Zero" gives the answers to those questions.

Description

Wild and subtle, self-titled "Super Top-Notch Detective."

A private detective. Once belonged to the Katsuragi Detective Office, where he solved many difficult cases and made a name for himself as a great detective. But a certain incident during the events of the game "EVE Zero" compelled him to leave the office behind and try making his own detective office at the dock area in a run-down warehouse, which he still owns.

He's no good at desk work, and is more adept at using his own head to investigate. His skills didn't completely decline over the time while work was rare to come by. He's rather loose when it comes to women.
