Today Nippon Ichi Software officially unveiled its new game Murder Detective Jack the Ripper.
The game will be released in Japan for PS4 and Nintendo Switch on April 25 and its tagline is “Choose between good or evil.” The player’s choices can determine the path chosen by the protagonist and its outcome.
It’s a fully-voiced adventure title (which in Japanese lingo means a visual novel) where the protagonist treads an alternate-reality London where medical science is very advanced.
Private Detective Arthur Hewitt recognizes the presence of “another self” within himself due to the shock of finding a corpse while investigating a murder case.
Arthur will get caught up into a major case involving London while living with alongside illusion of the self-proclaimed Jack the Ripper.
It certainly appears to be an interesting game (and a story mix of Jack the Ripper and Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde), and the key artwork portrayed on the cover is certainly interesting.
