New trailer for Testament of Sherlock Holmes in evidence at E3

Among the bevy of games news and previews at E3 this week, Focus Home Interactive revealed the second trailer for The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Testament of Sherlock, the sixth title from Frogwares to feature the famed detective.

Testament involves a murder wherein Holmes himself becomes the primary suspect. Unable to clear his name, he finds his world unraveling as the city of London and its inhabitants slowly turn on him. Both Focus and Frogwares have kept a tight lid on details about the game, which was first teased in a trailer released around this time last year.

The new trailer doesn't get into any story points, but it does show off characters and locations as well as the game's impressive art direction and lighting. It ends on quite an ominous image, setting up what we can reasonably assume is the fate at least one person wishes for our dear Mister Holmes.

On tap for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Testament of Sherlock is expected out later this year.
