The scene: Sherlock Holmes is under investigation in the latest installment of the Frogwares video game franchise. Due in stores in early 2012 for PC, XBOX360 and PS3, "The Testament of Sherlock Holmes" will reveal a darker inspector, who isn't afraid to use blackmail, forgery or burglary to solve a case. At the same time, these new methods might be his demise. He's accused of being involved in the very cases he's cracked in the past. The Sherlock reference? It's elementary: "Testament" will mark Frogwares' sixth in the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes series, which once gave fans the chance to control the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle character.
