We have to say we're really looking forward to getting our hands on Detective Pikachu when it lands on the 3DS on 23rd March, 2018. In the game you will take on the role of young Tim Goodman and explore with his talkative partner Pikachu. Yes it is weird that Pikachu now talks - and who expected that accent, either? 

Tim and this gruff, coffee-drinking Pikachu have teamed up to investigate the disappearance of Tim's father. Look for clues, talk to witnesses, and uncover the secrets of Ryme City.  A special Detective Pikachu amiibo is in the works, too. This amiibo features a sleuthing Pikachu that's larger than the standard amiibo, and when used with your game, it can unlock short videos that may contain helpful hints for your investigation.

If all that has you hot under the collar, then check out the new trailer above to see more action from the game itself. Sure, 3DS games look kinda pixelated these days, but it sure does look like a whole heap of fun.

Let us know if you plan to pick this up in March with a comment below.
