Detective Pikachu lands on the Nintendo eShop and at retail in March

Detective Pikachu is on the case, coming March 2018

Last but not least, a new trailer for Detective Pikachu arrived.

The move marks another step in the recent resurgence of Pokemon that began with Pokemon Go's release in 2016. Nintendo has also announced a North American release for the Pikachu New Nintendo 2DS XL (it was previously released in Japan and Europe).

Playing as the young Tim Goodman, you'll partner up with gruff, battle hardened Pikachu as you investigate the disappearance of Tim's father. This same content can be accessed in the game without the amiibo, but tapping the amiibo will allow players to unlock content more quickly. Who knows just how hard these challenges will be to necessitate the amiibo, but it may be worth picking up for its 13.6cm height (compared to 7.1cm for the original Pikachu amiibo). Perhaps it's no surprise the game which inspired the film is finally being released in the West.

Detective Pikachu will see our yellow friend exploring crime scenes in search of new clues and puzzles while also chatting with the citizens of Ryme City in search of valuable information. Another reward for patient fans will be the absurdly large special edition Detective Pikachu amiibo coming out alongside the game. Unlike the movie, it sounds like Detective Pikachu in the game will not be voiced by Reynolds.

Detective Pikachu himself also seems like quite the character; an avid coffee drinker wearing a snazzy deerstalker hat, the Pikachu in question even gets a joke about the main character mistaking a normal non-talking Pikachu for him.

Detective Pikachu, the Pokemon-spinoff that released for 3DS in Japan a couple years ago, is making its way to the west.

We're hopeful the amiibo will come to Australia too, we'll let you know when we hear from Nintendo Australia.

Detective Pikachu is directed by Rob Letterman, known for his work on Goosebumps, and written by Alex Hirsh (Gravity Falls).
