There's some two-part news today out of Germany, which seems only fitting for a game called Alter Ego. German publisher bitComposer has announced that it will be releasing the latest adventure by Future Games in the first quarter of 2010, on Nintendo Wii as well as PC.
Referred to by the developers as the "successor" to Black Mirror, the new horror-themed mystery sends players back to the late 19th century in a small English town called Plymouth, where a ruthless arisotrat has recently been buried. Local legends tell of his many cruel crimes, but he was never brought to justice during his lifetime. Since his death, however, a series of gruesome murders has occurred, and the town is now gripped in panic and fear. Players will control two different characters, a thief named Timothy Moor and Police Detective Bristol, to investigate from two different angles and ultimately expose a dark, hidden secret.
No specific release details have been revealed yet, but the game is scheduled for release in both North America and Europe. In the meantime, additional information can be found at the game's official website.
