Tintin Reporter – Cigars of the Pharaoh Announced For PC And Consoles
Microids and Pendulo Studios have announced they are bringing back everyone’s favourite Belgian investigative reporter and his faithful companion Snowy, when Tintin Reporter – Cigars of the Pharaoh releases across consoles and PC next year.
Releasing across all current and previous gen consoles, Cigars of the Pharaoh sees Tintin investigate a narcotics trafficking ring after meeting with the Egyptologist Sophocles Sarcophagus during a Mediterranean cruise. Investigating the Pharaoh Kih-Oskh’s tomb will take the investigator from Egypt to India, as well as Arabia and the Far East.
We’ll have to wait to see what Pendulo Studios cooks up and how the game will play but from the short teaser above, the new adventure game looks to lovingly recreate the beloved comic book’s universe. With an art direction faithful to Hergé’s drawings, this game is lining up to be a game that Tintin fans should keep their eyes on.
Stéphane Longeard, the CEO of Microids had this to say about the game, which seems to have been in development for a while:
“Being able to work on an adaptation of the famous Belgian reporter’s adventure is a delight. We started working on the game a few years ago and we cannot wait to show more to our players worldwide. If I had one thing to add, I’d say that we’ll do everything in our power to pay tribute to Hergé’s work and offer the fans the adaptation of their dreams”Stéphane Longeard, CEO of Microids
It is a shame that we didn’t get any kind of tease for Tintin Reporter – Cigars of the Pharaoh, the style looks like it could either be a lovely point-and-click or straight up adventure but we’ll reserve judgement for when it releases next year.
Tintin Reporter – Cigars of the Pharaoh will be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC in 2023.
