Continuing the trend of “games that take place in America” this time instead of fake LA, Extend brings us my ultimate favorite of FAKE NYC! 😂 Our story involves a newspaper column writer Teuta, who is trying to make it big as a news reporter. She chases down an infamous defense lawyer named Limbo Fitzgerald to try to to get an interview with him but instead he drops dead in front of her eyes after being stabbed by a hitman. Teuta then uses her magical powers of being able to jump back to the past into a random person’s body and warns Limbo of his fate thereby saving his life. After she returns to her present body she meets up with him and his partner Shu at the local hipster cafe and they have trouble believing her not ruling out that she may be tricking them or be in cahoots with the criminals. They strike a deal that until they figure out whodunnit, she has to hang out with them, and in return, Limbo promises to be her housing lawyer to help her break her lease and move out. 😂 Please note there ARE SPOILERS below the jump so if you plan to play just scroll down to my final thoughts!

Some of them also live there and pay rent in rare items from beyond this world worth thousands of yen.
