Detective Pikachu is Coming Stateside

Detective Pikachu is the newest confirmed Nintendo amiibo in months

Detective Pikachu is on the case, coming March 2018

The action-adventure aptly titled Detective Pikachu is being rolled out in the USA and the rest of the world on the Nintendo 3DS on March 23rd, according to an announcement from The Pokemon Company today. This game is coming out on March 23rd 2018 and contains the first game, released in 2016. Japan will get the second episode on this date as well. A new Detective Pikachu amiibo is coming to North America.

Unusual things are afoot in Ryme City, but Detective Pikachu is on the case. The plot follows Tim Goodman, a newcomer to Ryme City, who meets the eponymous Detective Pikachu, a tough talking, hardboiled detective.

The release of Detective Pikachu in the West was bound to happen eventually, as the game is being adapted into a major Hollywood movie, starring Ryan Reynolds as the electric rat.

After almost two years of waiting, hoping, and plenty of memes, Detective Pikachu is finally getting a Western release. Finally, a Pikachu-themed New 2DS XL will come to the West on January 26, priced at $160 / £140. This Amiibo is around twice the size of a normal Amiibo and limited-edition, so expect it to be a little hard to find.

Barriss reportedly made the call after an argument between two Call of Duty players led to one giving the other an address. Barriss is wanted in Kansas for placing a " swatting " call that led to the deadly shooting of 28-year-old Andrew Finch.

The game also features an Easy Mode, where the title character will provide handy hints on what to do or where to go next. Anyone who has been to a big music festival, sports game, convention, or anything else knows just how hard even sending a text message can be when you suddenly cram tens of thousands (or more) additional cell phones on the single nearby tower.
