'Detective Pikachu' Will Be Released Globally on the Nintendo 3DS
Equipped with a huge Pikachu amiibo.
We already knew that a Detective Pikachu movie was on its way to the U.S., but unfortunately the video game that inspired the movie was only available in Japan – until now that is. As it turns out, the video game will soon make its way to the Nintendo 3DS console in North America and Europe and will also come with a larger-than-usual Pikachu amiibo model that lets players access short videos to help them in their investigation.
Watch the trailer for the game above and expect Detective Pikachu to hit shelves in the U.S. and Europe on March 23. The amiibo figure, which you can view below, will cost ¥3,218 JPY (approximately $29 USD) while the price for the game itself is yet to be confirmed. Nintendo has also been busy preparing a new Super Mario title called Mario Tennis Aces.
