Fans of detective noir and cats can finally have these all with Blacksad: Under the Skin.

This September 26, a new video game will land on Steam. It boasts of a plot that is equally interesting with its main character, the detective housecat John Blacksad. It is based on a comic book series.

The main protagonist of the upcoming game title will show off what he is capable of, especially in solving a huge mystery.

The charismatic feline will be hired to look for various pieces of evidence behind the mysterious disappearance of a rising boxing star.

In Blacksad: Under the Skin, he will solve the case of Robert Yale, who is supposed to face a highly important challenge of his career. Yale is the biggest name in the boxing club of Joe Dunn. Thus, when he disappears, the latter’s daughter, Sonia, decides to take in Blacksad to solve the case. Apart from this, Dunn mysteriously dies as well.

Armed with his feline skills, he will dig into the case until he discovers the corrupt world of boxing.
