Crimes & Punishments: Sherlock Holmes has been announced by Focus Home Interactive for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

It will once again be developed by Frogwares and the game will be the seventh that the developer has made starring the famous literary detective, though only the third to arrive on consoles. For the new game, Frogwares has embraced the Unreal Engine 3, which in visual terms has apparently allowed for a huge leap consisting of more fancy technical things like dynamic shadows/lighting and smoother animations. Holmes himself meanwhile has been given a more modern redesign.

On offer will be eight cases including murders, disappearances and thefts, all of which include moral choices that will have an effect, be it positive or negative, on your reputation and will apparently make you think about every decision that you’re tasked with making.
