Hatoful Boyfriend creator reveals Black Holmes

No fun bird dating, just cruel murder

The creator of everyone’s favourite bird dating simulator, Hatoful Boyfriend, has announced its brand new game by the name of Black Holmes.

Hato Moa announced the game through the official website for Black Holmes, which is totally in Japanese. Thanks to the magic of Google Translate, we know a bit more about how this is tackling the classic Sherlock Holmes story. This version features Noah Holmes, an atheist and logician who loves to solve the crimes of London:

1889, London. 
Dazzling light prosperity and civilization has brought dropped a well-colored shadow to society, 
malicious people in stagnation had undergone a deepening. Human history and criminal history just like coins of both sides. Crime in response to the evolution of civilization also go increasingly diverse. This is a detective that has been fascinated with the art serving crime that gave birth of mankind, he to do our crime king of the story.

Hato Moa has been out of the development game for a while due to health reasons:

Some of you know I got out of condition a few years ago. (That’s the reason why I couldn’t work on as many projects as I’d done before!)
I’m almost recovering from illness and back to my projects. I’ll keep telling you the progress.

Despite that, what we’ve been shown of Black Holmes looks absolutely stunning. I’m looking forward to this one when it releases at some point in the future.

Now, someone go make me a fighting game featuring Noah Holmes, Jonathan Holmes, Benedict Cumberbatch, Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett please.
