Blacksad: Under the Skin will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on September 26, publisher Microids and developers Pendulo Studios and YS Interactive announced. It will include English, French, and Spanish voice-overs, and English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Dutch subtitles.
A Collector’s Edition including a copy of the game, Blacksad resin statue, and portfolio will also be available.
Here is an overview of the game, via Microids:
The 50s, New York City: Joe Dunn, owner of a boxing club, is found dead. Meanwhile, rising star Bobby Yale, due to take to the ring for the most important fight of his career, has mysteriously disappeared. Sonia Dunn, Joe’s daughter, takes over the gym and must deal with its financial woes. She hires private detective John Blacksad to investigate Yale’s disappearance.
With its anthropomorphic characters and its incredible 1950s feel, Blacksad: Under the Skin delivers all the eerily dark adventure of a detective novel, just like the eponymous comic book series. While embodying detective John Blacksad, players will have to conduct this adventure in their own way. Depending on their decisions, players will influence the relationships between Blacksad and the other characters as well as the very end of the investigation.
