This Pikachu means business.
Detective Pikachu originally launched in Japan back in 2016, but now its finally being localized! According to the official Pokemon website, fans will be able to “talk tough and solve mysteries” in the game on the 3DS this March 23. Here’s the description of the upcoming title:
“Take the role of young Tim Goodman and explore with his talkative partner Pikachu in the action-adventure game Detective Pikachu, coming to systems in the Nintendo 3DS family on March 23, 2018. Tim and this gruff, coffee-drinking Pikachu have teamed up to investigate the disappearance of Tim’s father. Look for clues, talk to witnesses, and uncover the secrets of Ryme City!”
That said, they will also be releasing a special Pikachu amiibo that unlocks short videos, offering some useful hints in the game. Moreover, this super-sized figurine is roughly twice the size of the regular Smash Pikachu amiibo!
