BANDAI NAMCO ENTERTAINMENT AMERICA INC. AND BIGBEN INTERACTIVE BRING THE GREATEST DETECTIVE IN HISTORY TO LIFE WITH SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE DEVIL’S DAUGHTER

Crime, Mystery, and Intrigue Set to Draw Players into the Victorian Era World of Sherlock Holmes

SANTA CLARA, Calif., (September 12, 2016) – Leading interactive entertainment media publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today announces its partnership with Bigben Interactive, a worldwide player in videogame publishing, to publish Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter in the Americas (except Argentina and Brazil) for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One®. Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter is scheduled to launch in the Americas in October 2016.

Developed by Frogwares Games, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter is a unique single-player adventure game where players take the role of the greatest detective in history, Sherlock Holmes. Using Holmes’ superior powers of observation, deduction, and his uncanny photographic memory, players will explore the streets of London to chase and interrogate subjects in order to unravel five different mysteries ranging from a series of disappearances in the heart of Whitechapel to uncovering a mysterious Mayan treasure. Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter blends exploration, investigation, and action to create heart-pounding experiences with each mystery being able to be solved in multiple ways depending on players’ actions. Beyond the mysteries, players will also slowly discover that Holmes is plagued by a looming threat over 221B Baker Street that could jeopardize the safety of Katelyn, his adoptive daughter; that may prove to be the great detective’s undoing.

“For over 120 years, Sherlock Holmes has been a transcendent character that has preserved his popularity through print, radio, television, film, and of course, videogames,” said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “With Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter, players will be immersed in Holmes’ world and bring his adventures to life in a way that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle could not imagine.”

“We are delighted to be working with BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. on the distribution of Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter in the Americas.” said Benoît Clerc, Head of Software Group at Bigben Interactive. “BANDAI NAMCO is a major player in the videogame industry and its knowledge of the American market combined with the quality of the game developed by Frogwares will make this launch a success. This partnership illustrates Bigben’s ambition: our publishing activity is advancing at a rapid pace and will enjoy strong international growth thanks to our varied portfolio of high-quality games.”

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter is rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB. The game will be coming to the Americas (except Argentina and Brazil) for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One® in October 2016.

    While not as good as Crimes and Punishment, it is still a must have for fans of detective games.
