Focus Home Interactive has just announced that The Testament of Sherlock Holmes will make its way to the Xbox® 360, PlayStation® 3 and PC sometime in September. The Testament of Sherlock Holmes marks the first console release of Frogwares’ seemingly limitless series of puzzle games staring the the master detective.
This time around Sherlock is the main suspect in a series of crimes. He’s one the lam, unable to prove his innocence (at least initially), and must investigate these crimes using what Focus Home Interactive calls a new “deduction” system. I’ve never played these games, so I don’t know what exactly this deduction system entails. However, I do know that you’ll get to interrogate people (a favorite pastime of mine) and can chose which leads to follow up on and which to ignore.
Since Sherlock was able to take on Cthulhu once, so I doubt Scotland Yard will cause him too much trouble.
