Detective Pikachu Begins Investigating in March
The Pokémon Company has announced that adventure title Detective Pikachu will be released in North America and Europe on March 23, 2018. The Nintendo 3DS game will be joined by a new larger-than-usual amiibo for the titular character that will unlock video hints when used in the game.
Players follow Tim Goodman, who teams up with a gruff-voiced talking Pikachu to investigate the disappearance of Tim’s father in Ryme City. Detective Pikachu was originally released in Japan in 2016, with the new worldwide release being an expanded version featuring a new episode in the game’s story. A feature film adaptation is also planned for release in 2019.
