The Famicom Detective Club series, otherwise known by the series name romanised from Japanese (Famicom Tantei Club series); in particular partly because the games in the series had no official localisations except for fan translations (of which the consensus in terms of ROM-patching was to translate it to Famicom Detective Club), is a franchise of Japan-only text-adventure detective/murder/mystery games produced by Nintendo, which TOSE currently owns a share of the copyright to.

Text-adventure is an early genre of interactive stories (also comparable to 'choose your own adventure' books, except Nintendo's text adventure series may have one canonical end other than game overs (which not all text adventures have).

The series began with Famicom Tantei Club: Kieta Koukeisha for Famicom Disk System, followed by a successor which was a prequel, called Famicom Tantei Club Part II: Ushiro ni Tatsu Shoujo. It has also received Super Famicom, Nintendo Power (Japanese) and Satellaview entries.

Overseas, the West would officially see a localisation of the Nintendo Switch remakes (Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir and The Girl Who Stands Behind) hence the series now has more exposure outside of Japan (in addition to the Shin Onigashima series, Hajimari no Mori series and Yuyuki's acknowledgements in the Super Smash Bros. series).
