Though often seen sporting a deerstalker hat and calabash pipe in multiple PC incarnations, the iconic Sherlock Holmes is set to grace next-gen HD consoles for the first time this year in new adventure The Testament of Sherlock. The scintillating detective tale will see Holmes face his greatest challenge yet: the accusation of a murder he struggles to prove he didn’t commit.
Players will be immersed in the London of 1898, honing the legendary sleuth’s skills when handling and inspecting clues, reenacting crimes and using the game’s deduction system to draw their own conclusions. Watson also pops up but, thankfully, Jude Law was too busy working on about three hundred other projects to lend his considerable voice talent.
Published by Focus Home Interactive and developed by Frogwares (this is their seventh Holmes venture), The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Testament of Sherlock is set for release on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC this autumn.
