    Two years ago, the ever-so-odd Detective Pikachu released in Japan. Despite popularity, and even a movie being in the works, there was never any mention of a localization until a ratings board leak back in December. As of today, Nintendo has announced that they'll be bringing Detective Pikachu to western audiences, along with giving the game a second episode, and a large amiibo.

    The second episode of Detective Pikachu will release in March, for both Japan and North America/Europe. Coinciding with the release will be an amiibo of the hat-wearing Pikachu, which is quite noticeably larger than its Smash Bros. amiibo counterpart.


    Also, on Jan. 26, an adorable New Nintendo 2DS XL system featuring Pikachu’s iconic face launches in stores at a suggested retail price of $159.99:

    I seen a title and thumbnail of a video, wasn't expecting it to be that big. lol
    Honestly, maybe they should have been that big in the first place. Can't wait for life size Amiibos.

    Good to see that the game is finally coming over.

    ....why is the amiibo big compared to the others?

    First a cereal box and now this? I think someone high up @ Nintendo is just bored.

    Anyways I never looked much into this games so hope we have a min direct on it and they show it off.

    What I've seen from the game hadn't interested me at all, but the concept alone is definitely cute, and with the right writing I think this might turn out to be a pleasant little game.

    Hope they will include Japanese voices. Now it looks like a animation from cartoon network

    But is it Ryan Reynolds voicing Pikachu?
    That's the real question.

    Already play the japanese version whe come out two years ago. Is fun but for me was nothing special, but if you want a fun adventure in the Pokemon world as a detective give it a try.
    Since all the time they take for prot this out side Japan i was almost thinking that it will it the Switch, along side the second episode, but apperently we will have some other 3DS title form the pokemon series before completly move on to the switch.

    Can't wait to play it.

    Not a fan of the large amiibos (unless they are themed like yarn yoshi), but I did make a pikachu plush have an amiibo in it for funsies. My mimikyu plush is rocking my pikachu amiibo chip for now as well.
