According to a tweet from Ed Fear, Director of Murder by Numbers at Mediatonic, the game will release March 5 for Nintendo Switch and March 6 on Steam. The purchase price was also revealed to be $14.99 (USD), with gamers able to snag a 10% pre-order discount on Switch from February 20, and a similar discount on Steam during the game’s launch week.

Along with knowing when Murder by Numbers will release and how much it will cost, Mediatonic also dropped a new trailer for the game today that shows off the starring cast. You’ll see SCOUT, Honor, KC, and more in the trailer and it’s well worth a watch for its awesome art style alone.

The trailer also makes the game seem like it’d make for a great anime, and while no anime for Murder by Numbers is in the works (sadly), Murder by Numbers does offer some visual novel elements. You can speak with various characters and get to know them as you piece together evidence and figure out who’s responsible for the murder of Honor’s boss.

Murder by Numbers blends multiple genres together into one phenomenal looking final product, and we can’t wait to play it on March 5 for Nintendo Switch and March 6 on Steam!
