Detective Pikachu Confirmed For US And European Release

The Pokemon Company has announced Detective Pikachu will be releasing in North America and Europe on March 23, 2018.

Detective Pikachu will be available at both retail and on the eShop for USD39.99. The Detective Pikachu amiibo, which is a “limited edition” amiibo, will be available at launch. It will allow players to view all of the Pika Prompts from chapters that they have previously completed.

Take the role of young Tim Goodman and explore with his talkative partner Pikachu in the action-adventure game Detective Pikachu, coming to systems in the Nintendo 3DS family on March 23, 2018. Tim and this gruff, coffee-drinking Pikachu have teamed up to investigate the disappearance of Tim’s father. Look for clues, talk to witnesses, and uncover the secrets of Ryme City!

A special Detective Pikachu amiibo is in the works, too. This amiibo features a sleuthing Pikachu that’s larger than the standard amiibo, and when used with your game, it can unlock short videos that may contain helpful hints for your investigation. Check back for details on this special limited-edition amiibo.
