Earlier this year, The Pokemon Company revealed that it would be working on a ‘Complete’ version of the Detective Pikachu game for Nintendo Switch. It’s been some time since that announcement, but now it looks like development is finally shifting into full gear!
Creatures Inc. (a studio under The Pokemon Company) are now seeking out new hires for the project. A dedicated website lists all of the positions they’re looking to fill – such as 3DCG designers, programmers, and more.

As reported previously, Detective Pikachu first debuted on the 3DS in 2016 – although it concluded on a cliffhanger of sorts. This new release on the Switch will reportedly wrap up that story fully, while also featuring a different finale from the Detective Pikachu (2019) movie.
Only time will tell if this HD re-release will be worth the wait – but it’s good to finally see it moving forward! We’ll report back when we receive more details about the game in the future.
