Focus Home Interactive this morning sent over a new set of clues… in the form of screenshots for their upcoming PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC mystery adventure title being released in conjunction with Atlus.
The new set of screens show off some of the dramatic scenes you can expect from the game when it launches in September 2012.
The latest investigation of Sherlock Holmes once again shows more in screenshots! Scotland Yard is relentless in its pursuit of the famous fallen detective, but did not manage yet to arrest the one who was, not so long ago, considered an exemplary citizen and a skilled investigator. Hunted, Holmes still continues his investigation and his questionable doings, right under the police’s nose.
These 4 new screenshots are a beautiful way to give you a larger preview of the game, its dark ambiance, and its strong story centered around a controversial hero with obscure motives. This is a thrilling investigation that players will have to lead, playing as both Holmes and Watson in turns. Multiple bloody murders, a strange illness which started to plague the population of London… these are the cases they will have to investigate upon, all the while trying to discover the reasons behind the strange actions of Sherlock himself.
Scrutinized by Scotland Yard, doubted by his stalwart companion Dr. John Watson, and behaving more erratically than ever, Sherlock Holmes is in what might be his darkest hour yet. His recent triumph in the case of a missing set of priceless jewels has turned to disaster; the necklace's owner accuses Holmes of returning a forgery to him, and there seems to be no evidence at the ready to clear his name. Has Sherlock Holmes become a criminal ? If he is indeed a thief, what else is he capable of ? As the questions and suspicions mount, will salvation be found or will there be nothing to stop the famous detective's seeming descent into darkness.
