The Japanese game is finally leaving the homeland and heading to the U.S. and Europe. The release for the Nintendo 3DS is dated on March 23rd in 2018.
The Detective Pikachu originally launched in Japan in the winter of 2016 and now the game is heading west for which of course some adaptation had to be made.
The game is an adventure starring Pikachu and his loyal human sidekick Tim on a quest to find Tim’s missing father. There is a lot going on in the game; investigating, looking for clues, gathering information and running into other characters. There are many characters Pikachu encounters, Pokémon and human, but not all of them can be trusted, so play with caution.
But there is another little surprise or, more precisely, a big reward for the patient fans coming alongside the game; a super-sized special edition Detective Pikachu amiibo. This amiibo is almost twice the size of the non-detective Pikachu amiibo. Why so, remains a mystery. So on 23rd of March 2018, not only you will be able to purchase the Detective Pikachu game, but also a big-size amiibo.
In the near future, we are also expecting a movie adaptation of the game, which is currently in production. So, for now, all that is left to do, is to save the date of the Detective Pikachu game release in the west, on the 23rd of March 2018, and pick it up at your favorite store.
