In their holiday message, Forgwares teases the arrival of Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments on Nintendo Switch.

With the port of one of his best games, Sherlock Holmes will also investigate on Nintendo Switch

Frogwares is a Ukrainian development studio that focuses nearly entirely on developing Sherlock Holmes games. And they're quite excellent at it, and very effective at it: since 2002, they've created 9 games based on detective adventures that merge investigation, graphic adventure, riddles, and action.

This year, they launched Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One, a prequel that depicts the story of Sherlock Holmes' boyhood, when he returns to the Mediterranean village where he grew up at the age of 21 to investigate a mystery surrounding his mother's death.

We don't know what their next project will be, but a Christmas greeting on the studio's official account makes it plain that they are working on a Nintendo Switch port.

And, more particularly, from Sherlock Holmes Crimes & Punishments, a 2014 release for PS4 and Xbox One. In its Christmas illustration, a Nintendo Switch is clearly drawn on the ground, along with the letters C&P. You don't have to be Sherlock to figure out what's going on!

Sherlock Holmes Crimes & Punishments features six unique cases, some based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories and others brand new, in which to make decisions, sometimes in difficult moral quandaries...

Crimes & Punishments is one of the most well-known current Sherlock games. Then, in 2016, they produced The Devil's Daughter, and in 2019, they released an original IP, The Sinking Cit, which was inspired by Lovecraft's work (which also had a Switch port).

The Sinking City's release was marred by controversy, and after splitting up with Nacon, Frogwares self-published Sherlock Holmes Chapter One. Focus Entertainment published the original Crimes & Punishments.

We'll have to keep an eye out for what Frogwares has to say starting next year, while the announcement could be saved for the more than likely Nintendo Direct in February 2022... Last year, Nintendo Direct resumed its traditional schedule, with an E3 in June, a September event, and a January event.
