Two of England's most famous (or perhaps infamous) figures will soon be squaring off in North America, as The Adventure Company announced today that Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper will be releasing to stores this April.
The fifth Sherlock Holmes mystery from Frogwares promises to be another dark thriller, as the great detective attempts to identify the serial killer whose brutal 19th century real-world murders shocked London's shady Whitechapel District and never were solved. This time, however, he's up against Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famed fictional sleuth, who won't easily be thrown off the track as the death toll continues to mount.
Following a successful implementation in the "Remastered Edition" of The Awakened, Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper is the first new game to release with both free-roaming, first-person and point-and-click, third-person control options available. The game also promises an original new system for testing criminal hypotheses throughout the investigation.
Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper is expected to be available at the budget price of $19.99 USD.
