Murder Detective: Jack the Ripper’s New Trailer Shows The Detective and Murderer Parts

Recommended Videos

Murder Detective: Jack the Ripper has an interesting premise that allows the player to choose between going on a “Detective Route” or a “Murderer Route,” and we got a taste of both in a new trailer from Nippon Ichi Software.


The game is a visual novel that diverges between Detective and Murderer Routes, with choices  you make leading to one or the other. The protagonist is a private detective named Arthur Hewitt, who begins to hallucinate a pretty real Jack the Ripper after a serial murder case occurs. You can read more about the key characters and story routes here.


Murder Detective: Jack the Ripper releases in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on April 25, 2019. You can check out more about how Arthur gets caught up in the serial murder case in our previous report.
