It’s elementar–nope. I will not start with post with the easiest Holmes cliché that has ever existed. I will not do it, and it will not be done. You will just have to watch this trailer without any lazy quips.


The Testament of Sherlock Holmes, developed by Frogwares and published by Focus Home Interactive, has you play as the titular detective while solving mysteries in an open world London. Players have the ability to decide characters’ innocence using a “deduction system.” If this trailer holds any water, it seems like Holmes will die at some point and return as Zombie Sherlock, but that is only speculation at this point.
