Moulinsart, Microids and developer Pendulo Studios have released the first screenshots of their upcoming adventure, Tintin Reporter – Cigars of the Pharaoh. Set for release on PC, Nintendo Switch and Xbox and Playstation consoles next year, Tintin Reporter – Cigars of the Pharaoh has been inspired by an iconic adventure from Hergé’s The Adventures of Tintin, which features the famous young Belgian reporter. A new trailer has been released and can be seen below….
This new adventure for the young reporter sees Tintin and his faithful dog Snowy meet with the renowned Egyptologist Sophocles Sarcophagus during a Mediterranean cruise.

We started working on the game a few years ago and we cannot wait to show more to our players worldwide. If I had one thing to add, I’d say that we’ll do everything in our power to pay tribute to Hergé’s work and offer the fans the adaptation of their dreams”.
