Western players can solve mysteries with Detective Pikachu this March

Back in early 2016, The Pokemon Company released Great Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Duo (Meitantei Pikachu: Shin Konbi Tanjo) for Nintendo 3DS.

With news that Detective Pikachu will receive a worldwide release, Nintendo of America has announced that the New Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition will soon electrify North America.

Detective Pikachu features everybody's favourite electrical mouse walking the streets of Ryme City solving mysteries. The goal of the game is to help out a boy named Tim find his father. It's our favorite gumshoe Pikachu posed while "sleithing", and it's a little bigger than regular amiibo figures. Finally, it won't just be Japan who gets to solve cases with the world's best electric rodent. The film's script will be written by Guardians of the Galaxy co-writer Nicole Perlman and it will be co-written by Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch.

There's also be a giant-sized amiibo to be released alongside it, that will give you instant access to in-game cut scenes, instead of having to unlock them normally by playing the game. I'm nearly more excited for the Amiibo than the game. Missed some of the Pika Prompts during your investigation? He isn't doing it alone, of course, with the gritty, coffee-addicted Detective Pikachu at his side. Sadly, Ryan Reynolds does not appear to be voicing Pikachu. Still, that won't keep me from pushing hard for Detective Pikachu in the next Smash Bros. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. The Detective Pikachu movie that was announced past year, staring Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) and written by Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Alex Hirsch (Gravity Falls), however, won't release until 2019.

Detective Pikachu comes out on March 23, 2018, for the 3DS.
