Sherlock Holmes gets some new media to deal with Jack the Ripper

If you're a fan of the wickedly Victorian Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper then you'll be glad to soak up some new media on it. These assets are for the 360 version of the game. The game will have a retail release on April 20th for the budget price of $30, and looks to be one of the most fan-fictiony mashups ever to grace a console. I've often wondered how the world's first detective would track down the butcher of Whitechapel, but I missed the downloadable version of the game last year. I just hope I can mod the game and make Holmes look like Robert Downey Jr.
