There's no rest for promising young FBI agents, it seems. Having just completed her first murder investigation in Art of Murder: FBI Confidential, now Nicole Bonnet is off on another new mystery in Hunt for the Puppeteer, as recently announced at the Games Convention in Leipzig.
In the new game, a serial killer has struck several times in brutal fashion in the U.S., and now a first victim has appeared in Paris, displaying the same trademark clue: a doll dressed in 17th century clothing. During the course of the investigation, players will guide Bonnet across two continents, from France and Spain across the ocean to New Orleans and Cuba, making some startling centuries-old discoveries along the way.
Update: To coincide with the game's announcement, City Interactive has also released a cinematic trailer, which can be streamed directly from GameTrailers or downloaded from WorthPlaying.
A traditional point-and-click adventure like its predecessor, Hunt for the Puppeteer has no firm release date as yet, but City Interactive is currently targeting the first quarter of 2009 for completion.
