SHERLOCK HOLMES: Nemesis SET FOR UK AND US RELEASE
Ascaron Entertainment and Focus Home Interactive are pleased to announce the launch of the new PC game Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis. Already released in mainland Europe under the name Sherlock Holmes Versus Arsne Lupin, the game has been developed by Frogwares, the same company responsible for the critically-acclaimed Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened.
Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis
Arsne Lupin, a renowned French burglar, comes to 19th century London with one goal in mind – to defy Scotland Yard and Sherlock Holmes. He will do this by stealing five priceless objects in five days from prestigious locations, including the National Gallery, the British Museum, the Tower of London and even Buckingham Palace. Sherlock Holmes must confront his young enemy and stop a national catastrophe.
In a familiar gaming interface, players will spend hours exploring an atmospheric 19th century London setting. There are more than 40 characters from the Victorian era to interact with and hundreds of clues and objects to uncover. Prepare yourself for a journey into history as you begin a battle of wits between the literary legends from authors Conan Doyle and Maurice LeBlanc.
“We continue to experience tremendous success with our Sherlock Holmes adventure series,” said Alan Wild, Global Product Marketing Manager at Ascaron Entertainment. “Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis promises to be another outstanding adventure game with the world-famous detective leading the way.”
