Microids has announced the Agatha Christie - Hercule Poirot: The London Case release date (try saying that ten times quickly). The point-and-click adventure game will launch across PC and consoles on August 29th and will serve as a direct sequel to 2021's Poirot: The First Cases.

As you've probably guessed, The London Case will take the famous Belgian detective (although he's not quite as famous at this stage) to London, where he's been tasked with making sure a priceless work of art can be transported to the city safely. Obviously, things don't go according to plan, and Poirot is quickly drawn into another mystery. If you want a flavor of The London Case, you can take a look at its new release date teaser trailer here.

In The London Case, Poirot will be teaming up with his longtime ally, Arthur Hastings, whose name you might recognize if you're an avid Agatha Christie devotee. He's accompanied Poirot through adventures like The Mysterious Affair at Styles and The A.B.C. Murders, and The London Case will see the pair working together for the very first time (chronologically speaking, that is).

Since this is a point-and-click game, you know pretty much what to expect; investigating environments for clues, gathering evidence, and putting the pieces together in Poirot's mindmaps (using the little grey cells, n'est ce pas?) will all be key gameplay mechanics. You'll also need to interview key witnesses and suspects to determine who might be lying and who's telling the truth. A new timeline feature has also been added to help Poirot - and, by extension, you - keep track of events.

Agatha Christie - Hercule Poirot: The London Case will be released on PC, PlayStation consoles, Xbox platforms, and Nintendo Switch on August 29th. You'll be able to pick it up either physically or digitally.
