Inspired by a classic Tintin comic book adventure from Hergé, Tintin Reporter - Cigars of the Pharaoh, is an upcoming video game adaptation due to release next year, taking the titular bequiffed reporter, and his faithful dog Snowy, on an Egyptian investigation.
Upon meeting Egyptologist Sophocles Sarcophagus during a Mediterranean cruise, Tintin embarks upon a voyage to investigate the tomb of Pharaoh Kih-Oskh, only to find that it harbours a terrible secret. What follows is a globetrotting yarn that will take Tintin and Snowy from Egypt to India and beyond, following a lead on narcotics trafficking to the far east.
Aiming to “immerse players into the captivating comic book's universe and make them the heroes of an epic action adventure masterpiece,” with a faithful art direction based upon Hergé's illustrations, Tintin Reporter: Cigars of the Pharaoh will be coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in 2023.
