Blacksad: Under the Skin - Nintendo Switch
John Blacksad, a New York black cat P.I. in early years after the World War II. Counting minutes, waiting for the next gig, and then she comes in. A purr-fect feline dame with a sad expression on her face, accompanied by a heavy category bodyguard gorilla, Jake Ostiombe. Now Jake was an old friend, but the feline beauty, Sonia, is a client. Her father, Joe Dunn, an owner of a boxing gym has been found dead. He was found hanging one morning in the middle of his boxing ring by none other than the maid, Mary Purnell. The police is suspecting a suicide, but Blacksad isn't so convinced after only a few looks around the murder scene. So what seemed like a slam-dunk easy case that only needed confirmation turns into elaborate ruse of conspiracies involving drugs, blackmails, money, and hired guns. Once again, Blacksad is going to have earn his paycheck the hard way, but that's what he signed up when he decided to become a private investigator.
The game plays entirely in third-person perspective and action-camera follows the character but changes angles to give it more cinematic feel meaning the player is often not able to look where one wants and is left to explore only what the camera shows. Camera can slightly be moved offset from its fixed position which is in most cases used to find hidden album stickers which can be accessed via main menu. There are four different Hall of Fame sports albums, each spanning two pages, one per sport, namely American Football, Baseball, Boxing, and Hockey. There are 100 stickers in total depicting various sports celebrities, and some images are comprised of 2 or 4 stickers while others are depicted by a single one. In many cases missing to pick up a sticker before looking at story-related objects will not give the player a second chance.
