Square Enix have shared a video walkthrough for their upcoming murder mystery title, Murdered: Soul Suspect. As previously detailed, Murdered is being developed by Airtight Games in collaboration with Square Enix Japan, who pitched the idea.


In Murdered: Soul Suspect,  you play as detective Ronan O’Conner, who is murdered, and needs to solve the mystery behind his own murder as a ghost. The game sounds a little like Ghost Trick in premise, but the game’s design producer assures us it isn’t.


Murdered: Soul Suspect is slated for release in 2014 on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

    Looks very exciting! I like!

    Oh man. This is pure amazing. What you expect from from a game company collaborating with Square Enix.

  • JustThisOne

    Oh, man! I’m totally interesting in stuff like this. Detective work!~ I saw a lot of the stage demos during E3, so I’m glad they’ve shown more stuff as opposed to just rehashing whatever they’ve already shown.

    This looks very promising, but I’m not a fan of the ‘combat’. I hope the way to beat the enemies isn’t just solely ‘get behind them and press X to win’ every. single. encounter. But from what I’ve seen so far of the video, it sure seems that way. The investigation and exploration aspects, though, look very interesting.

    • JustThisOne

      *shrug* They did say different enemy types. But I can’t see Ronan having any other ability to help him defeat these guys anyway. So maybe it’ll just be creative ways to get behind them and press X to win. :X

  • I was about to go ”woo sounds sweet” then i saw squeenix and now im skeptical, even if the game is very good im worried sales might not reach unreasonable expectations I hope squeenix proves me wrong, still aside that game sounds very promising

    Interesting story… I really want to know what happen behind this murder.. Just that I do hope there are more combat type and plenty of challenging cases to solve.. perhaps old cases that had been closed but was found again..Some Penalties and stuff should be there as well.. Else it will be too easy.. Anyway, I am going to day one this game.. Love the story so far..

    The killer is Red John. (mentalist reference)
    But seriously, that guy took a METAL bat to the head, bent said metal bat and tossed ronan around like a step child. He’s unnaturally strong.
