Leading interactive entertainment media publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today announces its partnership with Bigben Interactive, a worldwide player in videogame publishing, to publish Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter in the Americas (except Argentina and Brazil) for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One®. Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter is scheduled to launch in the Americas in October 2016.
Developed by Frogwares Games, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter is a unique single-player adventure game where players take the role of the greatest detective in history, Sherlock Holmes. Using Holmes’ superior powers of observation, deduction, and his uncanny photographic memory, players will explore the streets of London to chase and interrogate subjects in order to unravel five different mysteries ranging from a series of disappearances in the heart of Whitechapel to uncovering a mysterious Mayan treasure. Sherlock Holmes:
The Devil’s Daughter blends exploration, investigation, and action to create heart-pounding experiences with each mystery being able to be solved in multiple ways depending on players’ actions. Beyond the mysteries, players will also slowly discover that Holmes is plagued by a looming threat over 221B Baker Street that could jeopardize the safety of Katelyn, his adoptive daughter; that may prove to be the great detective’s undoing.
“For over 120 years, Sherlock Holmes has been a transcendent character that has preserved his popularity through print, radio, television, film, and of course, videogames,” said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “With Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter, players will be immersed in Holmes’ world and bring his adventures to life in a way that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle could not imagine.”
