Nancy Drew has been racking up the air miles with the help of Her Interactive, and this summer will be no different, as the spunky teen sleuth is off to Italy in The Phantom of Venice.
The 18th PC installment of the popular series won't all be smooth sailing, of course. Nancy's detective skills are put to the test in an effort to stop a masked thief who is threatening to steal precious artifacts from the exotic city. Amidst the interlocking canals during Carnival, players will once again assume the role of Nancy, undertaking a "series of challenges, including an undercover spy mission for the Italian police. Along the way, players must take advantage of the unique Venetian culture such as learning the language and navigating the transportation system (gondola or walking) to accomplish the mission at hand."
Along with today's announcement of the new game comes a trailer that can be viewed directly from Her Interactive's website, offering a brief glimpse of some of the environments we'll see when The Phantom of Venice releases in July.
