Of Orcs and Men and The Testament of Sherlock Holmes Get North American Publishers


Two Focus Home titles have been picked up for North American distribution this morning, both still on for fall launches.

Of Orcs and Men, a grand role-playing game with orcs and goblins as the heroes for a change, will be distributed by Warner Bros. for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Atlus USA, on the other hand, has acquired the rights to publish the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Frogwares’ crime solving adventure game, The Testament of Sherlock Holmes. There’s a PC version as well, but I’m assuming in the U.S. that one will be direct-distroed through digital channels.


Hey, didn’t I just finish posting about these two games? Yep, here’s the Of Orcs and Men E3 2012 trailer; and here’s one for The Testament of Sherlock Holmes.
