Trailer records The Testament of Sherlock Holmes

The library of Sherlock Holmes adventure games is starting to catch up to the written series, and you can soon add another name to that list, as a teaser was unveiled today for the great detective's next mystery, The Testament of Sherlock Holmes.

Little is known so far about Frogwares' sixth Holmes adventure, and the trailer won't do much to alleviate that. The light atmosphere of children playing with a little Watson marionette is foreboding in its whimsy, as this game is described by its creators as perhaps "the most dangerous investigation of his entire career."

Like the previous game in the serious, Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper, the new title is being developed for both PC and Xbox 360. No firm release date has yet been announced, but The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is currently slated for a fourth quarter release in 2010.

This game should be great. I love all the Sherlock games. The visual for
this look outstanding. They have come a long way.

Yep. And I expect we’ll see all the new ones being multi-platform for the foreseeable future.

Yeah, but the third-person controls were kind of difficult to use.  There were too many points of view for each area.  Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper is on xbox360 now?

Two entirely different perspectives and control schemes offered in the same game, just like the last SH game. Switch from third-person point and click to first-person direct control at the touch of a button.

How can this game be both first-person and third-person control?
