First screenshot of Square's new detective game.

Square Enix has confirmed its new game teased earlier this morning is Murderd: Soul Suspect for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

Murdered: Soul Suspect is an exciting new game from Square Enix which challenges players to solve possibly the hardest case of all,” said the publisher.

If you visit a new evidence page on the game’s teaser site and enter the password “Ronan,” you’ll gain access to a ZIP file with the above image and following description.

O’Connor, male, mid- 30s, 170lbs, 5’ 11”

Detectives aren’t supposed to get bloody knuckles, but I’ve done a lot of things I wasn’t supposed to do. I lived through it all, the beat-downs, the back-stabbing, disrespect most people wouldn’t see in ten lifetimes and I never lost a fight… until now.

A developer has not been announced (Square Enix has told Gematsu it cannot confirm the developer), but it’s likely a Eidos Montreal or Crystal Dynamics project, considering both are working on new games.

Thanks, VG247.

  • Square Enix doing a detective game… Sounds mmmmm?

    • zakou

      Obviously it isn’t developed by Square lol, apart from publishing and little extra help i think this game won’t have anything to do with SE. If it will however then i will p**s all over Square for not working on Versus XIII and making other “not wanted” games.

      • Pyrofrost

        Come on now, you know they can’t just work on Versus XIII.
        Before SE finishes Lightning Returns, they will also be starting on another KH…this time on Vita!

        • zakou

          And this is why i play Tales of games more than FF games this gen xD 122 hours into Graces F and im only getting started, when Xillia comes out i will forget FF even exist xD

          Also funny how i spent more time on Tales of the World: Radiant Mythologies 1-3 on psp than ff games on psp xD

          • syaznifaiq

            cant agree more .. i spent 40 hours at childhood arc alone ..

          • Pyrofrost

            Fellow “Tales of” fan I see.
            I can happily call you “friend” ^_^

            Though I’m personally not a fan of the “escort” titles, I absolutely LOVE the “mothership” series and I have each and every one of them. :3

  • Elvick

    Odds are I’ll have no interest in this.

  • ShinAsura

    Didn’t know this genre was still popular. These kinds of games require a lot of peoples time

  • bebestorm117

    I enjoy murder mysteries if its half as good L.A. Noire it will be very good

  • lame

  • Bloodios

    Elaborated serial murder perpetrated by Sherlock Holmes himself?

  • uhawww

    A back-end check of the website reveals this is probably an Eidos Interactive joint.

  • gamelayer

    I reckon Goofy and Donald jumped him, then Mickey and Sora cornholed him with a keyblade.

  • Hey nice maybe he can find Versus XIII … the game sounds awesome but.. SE is on thin ice this year if we get no versus updates.

  • Ace

    I think the hardest case of all to solve from Square is: why hasn’t Final Fantasy Versus XIII come out yet and why do they reveal almost no news on it on a yearly basis?

      The Answer Is :



    • Elvick

      Just blame Wada, that’s what I do. :D

      • syaznifaiq

        Didnt surprise me if SE make game exclusive for xbox720 .. they already done that with The last remnant

  • DarthBrian

    Gonna assume this is Eidos Montreal’s next game. If so, I’m very interested. Loved Deux Ex:HR.

  • Azure

    I want a game developed by Square Enix Japanese staff, they used to make many awesome games in the past just what happened to them? seriously how many good games they made this generation? Im not talking about edios.

    • Mateus Prado Sousa

      13, 13-2 and Lightning Returns

      • Azure

        Please other than 13.

    • YangTerlupakan

      some staff from past squaresoft is still in SE actually

      if u want maybe u can try THE LAST STORY from HIRONOBU SAKAGUCHI (FF Creator)

      • Azure

        I played Hironobu’s Lost Odyssey and really enjoyed it.

  • PrinceHeir

    i think Square should solved the mystery on what the hell is going on with Versus XIII, Type-0, Bravery Default, FFX HD, localization/progress.

    most likely Edios Montreal, since they haven’t work in awhile aside from Deus Ex HR and Tomb Raider multiplayer.

    also where is Blood Masque?

  • I’ll go with Eidos Montreal considering their work on Deus Ex Human Revolution….

  • KurisuMakise

    Alright, I get people are frustrated with Square-Enix’s japanese output all gen but come on, not in every bit of Square Enix news guys, please. Let’s just focus on the cool new mystery game at hand. Of which I’m admittedly a sucker for Detective stuff.

  • Its nice to see Square Enix doing something different for once.

  • A new LA Noire? ^_^
