Timed Switch Exclusive Murder By Numbers Mixes Phoenix Wright With Picross
During Nintendo’s Indie World showcase, we got our first look at the timed Switch exclusive, Murder By Numbers. The game is set in the ’90s and takes place in Hollywood. The story is about an actress who finds herself starring in her very own murder mystery.
Your job – with the help of your robot friend named Scout – is to dig up clues by searching around the place, interrogating suspects and solving picross puzzles. The game is supported by music from Masakazu Sugimori, the composer behind Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney and Viewtiful Joe, and has weird and wonderful characters designed by Hato Moa of Hatoful Boyfriend.
