Video: A Brief Glimpse at the New Pikachu 3DS Game Includes Some Strange Motion Capture

No Pikachu, no!

Just prior to the release of Pokémon X & Y, it was confirmed that a new game starring Pikachu had gone into development; that's hardly surprising news, as The Pokémon Company has never been afraid of spinning off the main series to keep keen fans busy.

The "top secret" game has now made a brief appearance courtesy of Japanese TV network NHK; as spotted by Siliconera, the channel broadcast a teaser for upcoming programme Professional — Style of Work, which will apparently show behind the scenes of development on the game.

The video below shows a brief glimpse of this game, with Pikachu being viewed with a magnifying glass on a development 3DS screen, and then there's a rather peculiar snippet of facial motion-capture being applied to the iconic character — presumably part of the "playfulness" that's apparently integral to the project. The full show airs in Japan on 28th October, so presumably more footage will emerge on that date.
