Holmes Sweet Holmes

Focus Home Interactive and Frogwares has just released an exclusive E3 trailer for their newest Sherlock Holmes game, Crimes & Punishments.

In this new mystery adventure, Frogwares has Holmes and Watson investigating six different cases, and in each one, you must use Sherlock's skill at finding clues, as well as your own deductive powers to determine which of the possible suspects perpetrated the crime. The big catch being, if you condemn the wrong person, there could be unexpected consequences as highlighted in the below trailer.

Frogwares has released several Sherlock Holmes games over the years, but Crimes & Punishments will be the first not using their in-house engine. Instead, the newest Sherlock title will use the Unreal Engine 3, which the developers claim will allow for a "much richer, more immersive and detailed rendering of both the environments and characters."

Crimes & Punishments will be released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the PC this September.
