Ukrainian developer Frogwares have released the launch trailer for Sherlock Holmes The Awakened ahead of the game’s release on April 11th, 2023.

Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened remake sees a young Sherlock take on his first major case alongside his newly acquainted sidekick, John Watson. What seems like a straightforward case of a missing person quickly spirals into a web of conspiracies by a nefarious cult that worships the eldritch god Cthulhu and are attempting to bring about an ancient prophecy. The game will take the detective duo across 4 locations – Victorian London, a Swiss psych ward, the New Orleans bayous, and the Scottish Highlands - as they try to separate reality from the supernatural while trying to put a stop to these shadowy madmen.

The story is a creative re-imagining of what traumatic and sanity-breaking experiences the young detectives could have endured at this crucial point in their relationship. Memories, secrets and scars that would go on the shape them into the famous yet flawed detective duo the worlds knows them for.

I don't know what annoys me more: The unnecessary DLC cosmetics or the fact that there's no physical version of the game.
