The Pokémon Company and Nintendo have announced that a new Pokémon game ‘Detective Pikachu’ will be coming out exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS.
Detective Pikachu is an action-adventure title where a young boy ‘Tim Goodman’ meets up with a unique Pikachu, who also happens to be a coffee-swilling detective. The pair will team up and search for evidence and clues to solve a series of cases, whilst also investigating the disappearance of Tim’s father, Harry Goodman.
A special Detective Pikachu Amiibo is also planned for when the game launches. Larger than a regular Amiibo, it allows players to view all the of the Pika Prompts (short video clips) from chapters they have completed, including ones they missed finding earlier. These clips feature Pikachu’s quips and antics and may even contain helpful hints.
Detective Pikachu will come out exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems both digitally and at retail on March 23, 2018.
