Detective Pikachu Is Finally Coming to the West with a New amiibo

Detective Pikachu Is Finally Coming to the West with a New amiibo

Tim and this gruff, coffee-drinking Pikachu have teamed up to investigate the disappearance of Tim's father. I'm nearly more excited for the Amiibo than the game.

The action adventure game Detective Pikachu is heading worldwide with a launch on the Nintendo 3DS March 23rd, The Pokémon Company announced today.

After almost two years of waiting, hoping, and plenty of memes, Detective Pikachu is finally getting a Western release. Cases that would be impossible for Tim to solve alone can be cracked with the help of this Pikachu, because he is able to obtain vital clues and information from other Pokémon. "Look for clues, talk to witnesses, and uncover the secrets of Ryme City!" says the official release. Nintendo says about the Detective Pikachu amiibo: "A talking Pikachu who Tim meets in Ryme City". Still, that won't keep me from pushing hard for Detective Pikachu in the next Smash Bros. The game features new locations and a cast of both Pokemon and human characters.

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. The Amiibo will cost $30 (with global pricing yet to be revealed), launching on the same day as the game. It's larger than a regular amiibo, and it allows players to view all the Pika Prompts (short video clips) from chapters they have completed, including ones they missed finding earlier.

Finally, there's also a New Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition heading to retail on January 26 for $159.99. The corresponding amiibo arrives the same day, for $29.99 or the regional equivalent.
