Square-Enix just sent VG247 an email to confirm the name of the game. Here’s what they said:

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

Square Enix is teasing something.

The publisher sent out e-mails today titled “What is the hardest case to solve?”, which contains the following image:



The e-mail comes from Square Enix Members, and a reply-to e-mail is listed as ronan@murdered.com. Visit Murdered.com, and you’ll see the image atop this story, a Twitter link, and a “Legals” section. Hover your mouse over the latter, and you’ll see that whatever this is, it’s for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

Well at least the Wii U isn't getting murdered.

This is clearly a teaser for Versus.

I like this teaser theme. They could really be creative with this. Starting from Monday, they should update the site daily to include another S-E franchise which has been "murdered" - with the name of the IP appearing crossed out on a notepad list. I'm sure fans would love the teaser campaign!

From Eidos according to the code source, so THI4F maybe? Or another Hitman. Or Bloodmasque.

Why would people not want a game that is releasing on comparable hardware? I don't see it so much as begging as lamenting even at this point multiplatform titles aren't showing up on it, which is pretty significant.

See also: Vita and (occasionally) pc

I don't think that's exclusive to just Wii U, almost everyone does that in some form or fashion.

so, the first one is a chalk symbol on a sidewalk next to puddles with the reflection of a building, and the other pictures look like a downed tree trunk with a carving the same as the chalk.

That sounds like fanfic, so videogame writing standard quality, although I don't really see the connection between the teaser and that.
