Detective Pikachu Finally Coming to the West This March

Detective Pikachu is on the case, coming March 2018

It also builds on the iconic electric mouse-thing's sleuthing adventures with new locations, characters, and more story. Along with a release date, The Pokemon Company unveiled a limited-edition, jumbo Pikachu wearing his detective hat.

Get ready to walk, talk, and solve mysteries with Pikachu in Detective Pikachu when it releases on March 23, 2018 for $39.99.

Detective Pikachu follows the only Pikachu boasting a full vocabulary and his young sidekick, Tim Goodman, as the duo traverse the streets of Ryme City, investigating the disappearance of Tim's father and helping humans and Pokémon they meet along the way. Together, Tim and Detective Pikachu will encounter a number of mysteries in Ryme City and will need to talk to witnesses and gather their testimony in order to discover the truth.

This Detective Pikachu amiibo comes in at $30, which makes sense given the size increase. It still works like a standard amiibo, though - plop its hefty stand onto your 3DS' NFC reader and it will unlock short videos that could help get you past some tough spots.

And that's not all!

Thousands of patients hospitalised with flu as virus 'takes off'

Detective Pikachu may have lost the "Great" part from its Japanese title, and it may have taken two years to find its way outside of Japan, but the giant amiibo is new for everyone.

Phew! There's a lot of yellow stuff on the way!

Nintendo diehards will also be happy to know that a big Detective Pikachu amiibo is also coming out.

In addition to the launch of the Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition in the United States, the Big N has also reiterated a previous announcement that it will be releasing the Game Boy Color title Pokemon Crystal in the Nintendo eShop on the same date, January 26, 2018 for $10.

Detective Pikachu and its amiibo are set to release March 23rd. The Pikachu 2DS XL launches in North America on January 26.
