Microids today unveiled the release details for the narrative adventure ‘Blacksad: Under the Skin’, which will be released in September. In addition, we present the Collector’s Edition and the Story Trailer today.
The 50s, New York City: Joe Dunn, owner of a boxing club, is found dead. Emerging star Bobby Yale, who was scheduled to rise in the ring for the most important fight of his career, has mysteriously disappeared. Sonia Dunn, Joe’s daughter, takes over the gym and has to take care of her financial problems. She hires private detective John Blacksad to investigate Yale’s disappearance.
Blacksad: Under the Skin, with its anthropomorphic characters and incredible 1950s feel, promises all the eerie dark adventures of a detective novel, as does the eponymous comic book series. While the detective John Blacksad is embodied, players must explore this adventure in their own way. Depending on their decisions, players influence the relationship between Blacksad and the other characters as well as the end of the investigation.
Today, the new trailer also reveals more information about this exciting venture, introduces some of the amazing characters, and for the first time, it features the official voice of John Blacksad! In addition to the story trailer, Microids also revealed the details of Blacksad: Under the Skins Collector’s Edition, which contains a Blacksad resin statue, a portfolio and of course the game.
Blacksad: Under the Skin will be available on September 26, 2019, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Mac.
