by Daniel VuckovicJanuary 26, 2016

After three years missing in action the Detective Pikachu game has been revealed.

The games full title is The Great Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Partnership. It will be released on the Nintendo 3DS eShop next week on February 3rd 2016. Preloads begin tomorrow and there will be a discount if you buy it before release (assuming you’re in Japan).

The game features a Pikachu that’s not quite like any other, this one can talk and has quite a deep voice. He’s described as being as smug and loveable. The games genre is a ‘Cinematic Adventure’.

The Japanese trailer is below and contains information which will hopefully be translated as soon as possible.

    First a Pikachu Heihachi, and now a Pikachu Sherlock/Layton…
    Pikachu is really exploring new ways to expand his portfolio, eh?
