Nintendo has recently revealed a new Pokemon Spin-off game called Detective Pikachu. The game will let players control a talking, coffee drinking and mystery solving Pikachu.
In this game, Pikachu is showcased as a detective, complete with a deep voice, caffeine addiction and Sherlock Holmes mystery solving skills. The game delivers long monologues in a deep voice that totally is out of character from Pikachu’s cute and cuddly persona we’ve come to all know and love.
The game was first announced back in 2013, originally titled Meitantei Pikachu: Shin Konbi Tanjou (Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Team), but Nintendo has only let the world get a first look of the games from the trailer. The trailer features pre-rendered graphics so we can expect the graphics to change once the game finally comes out.
Meitantei Pikachu: Shin Konbi Tanjou or Detective Pikachu will be available in Japan for the 3DS on February 3rd. No word yet Western release date, so stay tuned.
