James Patterson's Women's Murder Club Impressions

Multi-million-selling author James Patterson is making his way to the DS in a new game from THQ.


James Patterson Women's Murder Club: Games of Passion

Nintendo's DSi has just celebrated selling one million units in Europe, but that's still a small number compared to the 150 million books that James Patterson has sold worldwide. The thriller author is one of the most popular writers in the world, and his Women's Murder Club series is now coming to the DS and DSi thanks to publisher THQ.

The game will be called James Patterson's Women's Murder Club, and from the look of the video shown at Nintendo's E3 press conference, it looks to be in the vein of Hotel Dusk and Professor Leyton. You play the game by holding the DS on its side, and it has a graphic-novel visual style.

You will take control of different women from the series, including Lindsay Boxer and Cindy Thomas, as they attempt to catch the killer. They have to solve puzzles, which seem to include Tetris-style block games. We'll bring you more on the game if we see more of it on the E3 show floor when it opens in a few hours.
