Square Enix released more details about supernatural mystery game Murdered: Soul Suspect today. Set in Salem, Massachusetts (Witch Central) Murdered stars ghost detective Ronan O'Connor. As if being brutally killed isn't rough enough, O'Connor finds himself stuck in the purgatory world of Dusk, and will only get to R.I.P. once he unearths the dastard that killed him and brings him or her to justice - from beyond the grave, somehow.
Thankfully, through his ghostly abilities O'Connor can read the minds of the living, as well as question some of Salem's non-living souls scattered about the afterlife. The "demonic spirits," however, sound like they won't respond to interrogations so well.
Murdered is set for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC early next year. While this story trailer sets the scene, we've not seen much of the game as yet. However, our honed detective instincts (and the video) suggest we should find out more in a week's time.
