Get out your magnifying glass and put on your detective cap! There's a mystery brewing on Malgrave Island, and it's up to you to solve it. In Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident ($29.99), exclusively for the Wii, players will learn the backstory behind the strange island. Malgrave was once a bustling resort, filled with life and color. Now the one-time island getaway has become dark and deserted, with just a few residents remaining.

One of those residents, Winston Malgrave, has called you to the island to find a cure for his wife, who has fallen ill. Your task: locate and collect the legendary healing dust that is found on the island. The mission sounds easy, but don't be fooled. As players soon learn, there is much more to the story than meets the eye.

As you scour the island for the mystical dust, more mysteries unfold. Use the Wii remote to search for clues, complete puzzles and locate hidden objects. The collected items will unlock additional areas and evidence that will help you crack the case. Three competitive multiplayer modes allow up to four players to compete to find hidden objects. Or, play in co-op mode to find hidden objects together. The engaging storyline and challenging puzzles will keep seek-and-solve fans of all ages entertained for hours.
