The Western launch coincides with the Japanese release of the second episode of the game. Sometimes they give out hints, but most of the time they are just Pikachu up to his usual antics. The game focuses on the player, who works with a talking Pikachu detective in order to solve a mystery happening in their town. The duo's ultimate goal is to find Tim's missing father.

Detective Pikachu is the newest confirmed Nintendo amiibo in months
That game about Pikachu as a gruff detective is coming west with a HUGE amiibo

It can often be frustrating defending Pokémon against people that haven't played the mainline games and their often surprisingly good spin-offs. Instead of battling other pocket monsters, players must search for clues by examining the environment. Also, Nintendo is releasing an absolutely big amiibo alongside the game. The figure is set to clock in at 13.6cm high and, according to the official Pokemon website "it will allow players to view all the Pika Prompts from chapters they have completed, including ones they missed finding earlier". This sounds like a handy tool for completionists. The base is apparently oversized as well, so this will be a definite addition to my personal amiibo collection. This adventure game comes to the Nintendo #3DS family of systems on 3/23. This could mean Nintendo is (finally) ramping down support for its popular handheld.

The game did fairly well in Japan, but it wasn't until the American-made Detective Pikachu movie was announced that we expected the game to cross over to America. Outside of this game, Kirby Battle Royale, and Dragon Quest XI, there isn't much on the horizon for 3DS in 2018. Detective Pikachu is now set to release sometime in 2019. With a new trailer we now know, along with the fact that a new Great Detective Pikachu amiibo is coming as well.
