Dust off your 3DS, it’s time to play good cop, bad cop with Pikachu.

Come March 23, Pikachu fans in the west will be able to explore the seedy underbelly of Ryme City in Detective Pikachu on 3DS.

Playing as the young Tim Goodman, you’ll partner up with gruff, battle hardened Pikachu as you investigate the disappearance of Tim’s father. Side-by-side, the two friends will be investigating clues and interrogate witnesses, including the many Pokemon that inhabit the city.

A special limited-edition oversized amiibo of Detective Pikachu will also be released at launch. The amiibo will unlock short videos that contain helpful information pertaining to the case. Missed some of the Pika Prompts during your investigation? Don’t worry, the amiibo will unlock those too.

Just make sure to have your coffee makers primed and ready, cause Detective Pikachu likes his coffee hot and strong.

So happy this is coming out. Also, it looks like there's a Japanese PV of episode 2. So I'm guessing the retail package is the two episodes together.

Might have to clear my schedule for this.

Evan_BJanuary 16, 2018

For what purpose.

nickmitchJanuary 16, 2018

So I don't have to play this with the child-like giddy I anticipate having in public.

It was more of a general statement. A cry to the heavens, perhaps.

I like the cut of your jib, sir.

I've never wanted to play a Pokémon game as eagerly as this one. I love wacko crazy stuff like this!

Well, the voice is much gruffer than I expected. It would be great to see Detective Pikachu as an unshaven, disheveled mess who takes a swig of alcohol constantly from the flask he hides in his hat while constantly lighting up a cigarette to think but lying to himself about quitting and that this cigarette will be his last one. Maybe at some point, he goes to the Pokémon red light district to get info from his source about the word on the streets from Jynx, the prostitute pokemon with a heart of gold.
