The first-ever trailer for the upcoming title Tintin Reporter: Cigars of the Pharaoh has just been released, giving fans of the iconic comic series and movie franchise a first look at what to expect from the game.
If you haven't heard of The Adventures of Tintin, think Sherlock Holmes meets Nancy Drew. The series of albums from the franchise sold over 275 million copies worldwide, and this game marks its return shown in a whole new light. The game is brought to us by both Tintinimaginatio and Microids, and showcases the dynamic duo from the comics; TinTin the reporter, and his faithful companion Snowy.
Players will take on the role of Tintin as he uncovers the mystery behind the tomb of Pharaoh Kih-Oskh. After meeting with Professor Sarcophagus while sailing along the Mediterranean Sea, Tintin decides that the dark secrets that lie within the tomb must be brought to light. During the endeavor, the duo stumbles upon large drug trafficking rings all around the Eastern part of the world, including India, Arabia, and Egypt. It is up to the player to find clues, investigate new areas, and solve puzzles, all while triggering intense cutscenes that involve plane crashes and high-speed car chases.
There will be several twists and turns along the way where the player will need to make choices that may or may not change the outcome for Tintin and Snowy. The game is said to be extremely immersive and filled to the brim with heart-pumping action and adventure.
Tintin Reporter: Cigars of the Pharaoh will be available at some point in 2023 and will be available on platforms such as PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
