Sherlock Holmes Tracks Jack The Ripper To U.S. Xbox 360

JoWooD Entertainment and Dreamcatcher pit the greatest fictional detective of all time against one of the most notorious real-life serial killers in Sherlock Holmes versus Jack the Ripper, coming in March to the North American Xbox 360.

Sherlock Holmes versus Jack the Ripper is the fifth in a series of Holmes adventure titles developed by Frogwares, already released for the PC in North America and Europe. Europe currently has the exclusive on the Xbox 360 version, but that ends in March, when JoWood subsidiary Dreamcatcher brings the struggle between master detective and merciless killer Xbox 360 owners on this side of the pond.

Players will explore the Whitechapel area of London in 1888, searching for clues to the identity of the notorious murder with the help of his faithful sidekick, Watson. It already has a more compelling plot than the recently released Robert Downey Jr. vehicle, so if you felt the movie pissed on Arthur Conan Doyle's grave as much as I did, then perhaps the game will be just the thing to make it all better. Look for it in March for the Xbox 360, or pick it up today for the PC.
