Hold on to your hats, everyone! More Nancy Drew: Alibi in Ashes news was released!
Do you remember the teaser that was released Monday? It has some characters in it, and I thought it'd be fun to make up names for those characters.
Those characters now have official names.
The characters are Brenda, who is apparently a reporter from some of the Nancy Drew books I haven't read. There's also Deidre Shannon, who is a character from some of the Nancy Drew books I've read. I'm also friends with her on Facebook. She'll be happy to hear she's in the game, I'm sure. And wrapping up the characters from the books, we've got the Chief McGinnis, the Chief of Police. The description makes it seem as if he is sympathetic to Nancy's plight in this game.
We've got two characters who I don't know, but they might be from the books. It's Alexei Markovic and Toni Scallari. Alexei is an ex-detective and current antique store owner. Toni is on the city council, and she works at an ice cream parlor.
In addition to these five characters, we have the four characters we already knew about: Nancy Drew, Ned Nickerson, Bess Marvin and George Fayne. But wait! They look...different!
Okay, forget what I said about Bess and George looking the exact same as they did in Ransom of the Seven Ships. That was in 2009, after all.
The sneaky people at the Nancy Drew company put up a picture of concept art for Ned Nickerson, rather than a screenshot. I guess they want to keep his character model a surprise, until the actual game is released.
