Western players can solve mysteries with Detective Pikachu this March

Western players can solve mysteries with Detective Pikachu this March

Get your deerstalker caps ready, because the game will be released on the 3DS on March 23, 2018 in North America and Europe.

The game focuses on the player, who works with a talking Pikachu detective in order to solve a mystery happening in their town.

Fans were anxious the game wouldn't get released in the West, because of the expensive translation job involved, but not only will it be out here on March 23 but it will include extra locations not in the original Japanese version, plus an easy mode. While the trailer doesn't show anything notable like gameplay, the game looks surprisingly interesting for such an odd premise. When that game arrives, it'll be accompanied by an amiibo quite unlike any you've seen before. Ash's Pikachu spoke in the most recent Pokémonmovie I Choose You which confused many viewers (it's immediately met with a "WTF" in this clip that quickly went viral). Detective Pikachu also has the ability to speak to other Pokémon, which will occasionally provide some valuable information.


Coinciding with the release is a super-sized Detective Pikachu amiibo. That Pikachu could prove vital to cracking the case, as he claims to have worked with Tim's father in the past.

With the game expanding its horizons, the Pokemon Company is also creating a special Detective Pikachu Amiibo for use with the game. It's our favorite gumshoe Pikachu posed while "sleithing", and it's a little bigger than regular amiibo figures. The movie stars Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds as the great Detective Pikachu.

By way of their Detective Pikachu project, Nintendo just confirmed the existence of a Detective Pikachu amiibo, which will unlock in-game hints.
