The Last Case Of Benedict Fox immerses players in an atmospheric gothic world filled with exploration, puzzles, platforming and intense combat.

The Last Case Of Benedict Foxis a 2D side scrolling mystery, combining classic feel of Metroidvanias with challenging combat from Souls-likes.

Fans of tough action-adventure games as well as engaging, emotional storytelling will be right at home in the twisted world of Limbo as they uncover the grim fate of the family that once occupied the house and their missing child. Players will need to make use of their weapons, traversal abilities, and even the environment around them in combat against demonic forces, and an occult order that preys upon them as they venture into Limbo and the depths of the mansion.

In 1925 Boston, self-proclaimed detective Benedict Fox must uncover the fate of a family while traversing a dark, eerie world of emotions made manifest while battling the demon trapped inside his own body. Face an occult order and filthy demons in tactical and rewarding combat, explore the realm of the arcane, and unravel the disturbing secrets of a tragic family. The Last Case Of Benedict Fox will immerse players in a rich story with engaging Metroidvania style combat and exploration, all in a breathtaking high fidelity art style.

Independent game studio Plot Twist announced its fantastical, Metroidvania action platformer The Last Case of Benedict Fox will officially launch on PS5 on March 26. The game will launch as the new Definitive Editionwhich will include exciting new content and updates that embrace the feedback Plot Twist received from the community after the game’s launch on Xbox and PC last year. The Last Case of Benedict Fox will retail for $24.99 on PS5. 

Players can expect exciting new content and major updates from the new Definitive Edition, including new combat arenas that will feature fun challenges, the chance to fight with demons and other foes, and the perfect place to master their skills. Players will also find new quests and puzzles and a deeper look into the past of Benedict and his demon companion through new story content. On the update front, players will instantly notice the overhauled combat and traversal changes that improve the experience for players. This includes an accelerated flow that speeds up combat and makes some content optional. To account for this, players will see improved and adjusted animations, more responsive combat and movement and several gameplay-important items being put onto the main path, rather than being put in hidden places. 

“The team at Plot Twist has been hard at work updating The Last Case of Benedict Fox to incorporate the feedback of our passionate community and better realize our original vision for the game,” said Paweł Czapla, CEO of Plot Twist. “Now, we’re ready to introduce this thrilling Metroidvania title to a whole new group of players on PS5, while bringing our community on Xbox and PC the updates they’ve been patiently waiting for.”
