Let’s see how this works out
Late last year we reported that work had begun on a live-action movie for Detective Pikachu, which is due to come to the silver screen on 10th May, 2019. Brought to us by Rob Letterman, the director behind 2010's Gulliver's Travels starring Jack Black... who knows how this is going to turn out. However, with talented...
For a limited time
Originally given out as a physical pre-order bonus for the Japanese Detective Pikachu release in 2016, Detective Pikachu: Episode 0 - Eevee's Case is a short book that acts as a prequel chapter to the events in the main game. Available for a limited time only, an English language (and other European languages) eBook version is...
A bolt of brilliance
We’re now just over a year into the Switch’s life and, despite knowing that the core Pokémon franchise will make the leap from 3DS to the new hybrid console at some point in the future, we know absolutely nothing about how the series might evolve with the huge system differences. Keeping the Poké-dream alive on the...
With no solid news as of yet on the Pokémon game(s) destined for Switch, the attention of Pocket Monster fans around the globe will no doubt be falling onto Detective Pikachu, scheduled to release on 3DS later this month. The game, which has already seen a staggered release in Japan, seems to be part of a franchise that the...
No Danny DeVito in sight
Detective Pikachu is one of the stranger spin-off games to arise from the Pokémon franchise, mixing a talking Pikachu with a Professor Layton-like mystery game style. It’s getting its own movie in the near future, and though the game may be old news in Japan, the impending launch in the West is a major game release for...
Let’s see how this works out
Last week, we received the news that Ryan Reynolds would be voicing the starring role of Detective Pikachu in the upcoming movie.

Coming in time for the movie hype?
3DS eShop title Detective Pikachu has been rated by the PEGI for a Europe release, it has been revealed. The Pokémon spin-off - which is getting a Hollywood movie with Ryan Reynolds in the lead role - launched in Japan way back in February 2016. It plays like a classic point-an
Production on the upcoming live-action Detective Pikachu movie has been progressing at a slow and steady rate, but the actor behind the titular role has been kept tightly under wraps until now. The running joke on the internet was that Danny DeVito should be the one, but it would of course be fascinating to see who would be picked...
Justice for all
Fans have been pretty vocal over their shock at Pikachu’s sudden speaking role in the new animated Pokémon movie, but that certainly isn’t the first time that we’ve heard of the little yellow mouse thing talking. A live action Pokémon movie—Detective Pikachu—is currently in the pre-production process, and it seems like...
Not long to go!
It seems like a lifetime ago that we first found out about the Detective Pikachu movie; over a year has passed since Legendary Pictures secured the rights to the franchise. The project finally seems to be going ahead, though, as a production listing for the movie has been created stating that filming will begin on January 15, 2018 in...

Joe Serebii Merrick goes hands on with the intriguing eShop release that recently arrived in Japan. Back in October 2013, when the NHK television show The Professionals focused on The Pokémon Company President, Tsunekazu Ishihara, it showed him going through the early work for two titles. One title became Pokémon Link! Battle on...
This needs to happen, for real
Detective Pikachu was officially revealed to the world last week, and the unusually deep-voiced sleuth already has his own amiibo, albeit a custom one. Crafted by GandaKris, the keen-eyed investigator comes with a hat, rug, tea and a pipe- everything a good detective needs, basically. To top it
Where's that salt?
Another week, another boatload of news that every fan is expected to digest alongside all the other things that are apparently happening outside the world of video games. Once again Nintendo Life Weekly is here to save you from the fate of current event vacuousness. This week we look at the rumours surrounding a title in the...
Weird CGI Pikachu arrives with a dapper hat
Do you remember the creepy CGI Pikachu reveal from October 2013, in which the 'mon had a very expressive face? It was teased back then as a 3DS title, with a magnifying glass as a rare clue, and it all went silent from there. Well, now we know it's called Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Combination -...
