The Testament of Sherlock Holmes Get A Release Date

With two blockbuster movies and a smash hit television show on the BBC (with the inevitable American version coming soon), The World’s Greatest Detective has seen quite a resurgence in popularity over the last few years and now, a stand alone third person adventure game from Frogwares and Focus Home Interactive will be hitting the PlayStation 3 on Blu-ray along with the Xbox 360 and PC in Europe on September 20th and North America on September 25th.

Set in London in 1898, Sherlock Holmes becomes the prime suspect in a major case of “theft, fraud and double-crossings”. It’s up to you as Holmes to examine clues and follow your own instincts in an open ended investigation to clear your name. Frogwares built a game engine geared towards consoles to handle the detailed environments needed for clue-filled crime scenes. As you can see from the gallery below, the game looks to have a moody and clearly mature style with Victorian-age London brought to life in exquisite detail. For more information about the game, see the official website at http://www.sherlockholmes-thegame.com/.

    I get the feeling that the game play eerily similar to L.A. Noire. Not that its a bad thing… Game looks great though. I’m cautiously optimistic.
