Publisher Microïds and developers Artefacts Studio unveil the release date for Europe and U.S., the main illustration and the last of three behind the scenes videos about the investigation game for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Mac “The ABC Murders” based on Agatha Christie’s famous novel.

This last video from the creators of the game tells us more about the personality and the unique style of Agatha Christie’s famous detective. Several prestigious actors, including Peter Ustinov (“Death on the Nile”, “Spartacus”…) and Albert Finney (“Murder on the Orient Express”) have played the role of the Belgian detective. But it was David Suchet who became the hero of “Agatha Christie’s Poirot”, the British series that was broadcast worldwide from 1989, and who really made a mark on everyone’s mind. This actor’s performance has inspired the pixelized Hercule Poirot in “Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders”.

The posture and facial expression of this quite small and potbellied, yet gifted, mustachioed detective have been included in the game. A bit dandy and sometimes almost arrogant, he comes to life thanks to the graphic designers assisted by a French cartoonist. At any time, the players can switch between French and English dubbing. This allows the players to enjoy all the language tricks slipped into the dialogues to remind them of the non-British origins of the investigator. In the original version, some French “mon ami” or “voyez-vous?” can be heard in the dialogues.

“Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders” adventure game is due to be released Febuary 4th, 2016 in Europe and 23 th in the U.S. on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Mac. It is dubbed in English and French and subtitled in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish and Russian.
