Detective Pikachu Is Finally Coming to the West with a New amiibo

This version also comes with an Easy Mode where Detective Pikachu can offer up helpful hints. We've only been clamoring for some investigative hijinks with the most popular Pokémon around since the game was originally announced, after all. You'll have cases to solve, witnesses to talk to, clues to think about and find out the mysteries of Ryme City.

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

"This Pikachu claims that he worked with Tim's father, and the two pair up to discover his whereabouts".

Detective Pikachu cracks the case on 3DS on March 23. Pikachu will be voiced by Ryan Reynolds with Justice Smith as the as yet unnamed male lead.

Detective Pikachu, a game for the Nintendo consoles, in which you play as a detective named, Tim Goodman with your partner detective/Pokemon Pikachu.

A new trailer for Detective Pikachu has been made available in Japan and in it, a brand new Detective Pikachu amiibo is revealed. In case you missed it, Detective Pikachu is finally headed to the USA, and we have our first trailer right here.

However, the announcement of Detective Pikachu for the west means more goodies. You'll have to put your detective skills to the test to foil the mastermind behind the disturbances in Ryme City. It's not only larger than a regular amiibo but it also lets players view all the Pika Prompts that they've uncovered throughout their adventure. While the trailer doesn't show anything notable like gameplay, the game looks surprisingly interesting for such an odd premise.
