The Irregular Corporation and Mediatonic have revealed that Murder By Numbers will be a timed exclusive for Nintendo Switch.

After TV detective show actress Honor Mizrahi is fired by her boss, he is found dead minutes later. Now starring in her own real-life murder mystery, she must team up with SCOUT, a reconnaissance robot thrown away after a mysterious incident, as she sets out to clear her name.

This 90s-themed visual novel will challenge you to investigate cases and unearth clues with SCOUT’s sensors – cracking hidden nonograms to start piecing together the proof that you need.

That evidence can then be used to interrogate “weird and wonderful” characters – designed by Hato Moa (Hatoful Boyfriend) – across TV studios, glitzy award shows, drag clubs, and other locations, against a soundtrack from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Viewtiful Joe, Ghost Trick composer Masakazu Sugimori.

Murder By Numbers will release as a timed exclusive on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in early 2020.
