Detective Pikachu Release Date For 3DS Announced Alongside New, Huge Amiibo

Detective Pikachu is the newest confirmed Nintendo amiibo in months

A spin-off of Generation VI of Pokemon (X and Y, Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby), Detective Pikachu is known as Great Detective Pikachu ~Birth of a New Duo~ in Japan and is a mystery action-adventure game.

The move marks another step in the recent resurgence of Pokemon that began with Pokemon Go's release in 2016.

Of course, you also play as a teenager, Tim, slowly peeling back the layers of a veritable, conspiratorial onion of Rhyme City in Detective Pikachu, with one character explicitly requesting you stay out of police business.

The sleuthing Pikachu is also getting his own amiibo that will trigger in-game hints. This isn't a regular release either, as the 3DS title will have functionality with an oversized amiibo figure. The film's script will be written by Guardians of the Galaxy co-writer Nicole Perlman and it will be co-written by Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch.

Odd things are afoot in Ryme City, but Detective Pikachu is on the case.

That game about Pikachu as a gruff detective is coming west with a HUGE amiibo

Nintendo diehards will also be happy to know that a big Detective Pikachu amiibo is also coming out.

The game was also confirmed to be coming to the U.S. and Europe on March 23rd thanks to a post on the official Pokémon webpage. Tim's father has gone missing, and Pikachu helps search for him. The amiibo allows players to view all of the "Pika Prompts" cutscenes from chapters they've completed.

Not only is Detective Pikachu a movie (starring Ryan Reynolds as the tiny, yellow electric mouse), there will be a video game of the same name as well.

Get ready to walk, talk, and solve mysteries with Pikachu in Detective Pikachu when it releases on March 23, 2018 for $39.99. Bizarrely, Pikachu cannot only speak English, but has a somewhat gruff demeanour and a penchant for guzzling coffee. For fans who have followed Pokemon these past 20 years, it's a jarring change to see Pikachu talking with such a gruff voice. While the man who voices Pikachu in the trailer (and presumably the game) is clearly not DeVito, he still nails the role.
