Blacksad: Under the Skin – Trailer, release date, and Collector’s Edition

A few weeks ago, Microids announced that Blacksad: Under the Skin will be released in September in Europe and North America. And yesterday, we finally got a proper date: September 26th!

Microids also revealed a brand new trailer for the game, focusing on the story:

But that’s not all… they also announced that the game is getting a Collector’s Edition, which includes the following:

  • a copy of the game
  • an artbook
  • a resign figure of Blacksad

Here’s what it looks like:

Finally, here’s some more details for the game, along with the various boxarts:

The 50s, New York City: Joe Dunn, owner of a boxing club, is found dead. Meanwhile, rising star Bobby Yale, due to take to the ring for the most important fight of his career, has mysteriously disappeared. Sonia Dunn, Joe’s daughter, takes over the gym and must deal with its financial woes. She hires private detective John Blacksad to investigate Yale’s disappearance.

With its anthropomorphic characters and its incredible 1950s feel, Blacksad: Under the Skin delivers all the eerily dark adventure of a detective novel, just like the eponymous comic book series.

While embodying detective John Blacksad, players will have to conduct this adventure in their own way. Depending on their decisions, players will influence the relationships between Blacksad and the other characters as well as the very end of the investigation.

Blacksad: Under the Skin (Switch) comes out on September 26th in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
