Detective Pikachu is finally coming to North America and Europe


Nintendo and The Pokemon Company have announced that Detective Pikachu will finally make its way to North America in 2018.

Get more details on Detective Pikachu and look forward to exploring Ryme City with Tim and a special Pikachu March 23, 2018!

Back in 2016, Detective Pikachu released exclusively in Japan as Detective Pikachu - Birth of a New Duo. While Ryan Reynolds has the role of Detective Pikachu in the upcoming feature film, he's not the voice you hear in the trailer.

In Detective Pikachu, players control a human that works alongside a deep-voiced Pikachu who has somehow learned how to speak English (or whatever language you play the game in) to solve mysteries and chase down criminals.

Detective Pikachu will be launching in the United States with a special new amiibo.

Detective Pikachu Amiibo

The Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition is set to release in the U.S. on January 26, 2018. Detective Pikachu is now set to release sometime in 2019.

Detective Pikachu himself also seems like quite the character; an avid coffee drinker wearing a snazzy deerstalker hat, the Pikachu in question even gets a joke about the main character mistaking a normal non-talking Pikachu for him.

A special Detective Pikachu amiibo is also planned for when the game launches. There will also be Pika Prompts that pop up, which lets fans listen to Pikachu's quips and antics, while also giving players clues for what to do next.

In addition to the launch of the Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition in the USA, the Big N has also reiterated a previous announcement that it will be releasing the Game Boy Color title Pokemon Crystal in the Nintendo eShop on the same date, January 26, 2018 for $10. You guys know how quickly Nintendo hardware sells out, so if this is something you want in your hands, you better be ready to pre-order as soon as you're able.
