Detective Pikachu amiibo and game announced for North America

Pikachu put on his detective hat and took some language courses from Meowth about two years ago when Great Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Combination was announced for Japan.

It was announced today that Detective Pikachu will be released as a Nintendo 3DS exclusive in the USA and Europe on March 23.

This news isn't too surprising considering a PEGI rating popped up for the game back in December. The company also put out the new trailer, seen above, introducing the talkative Pokemon whose fondness for coffee is only exceeded by his love for solving mysteries.

We know that a live-action Detective Pikachu movie is in the works. "Look for clues, talk to witnesses, and uncover the secrets of Ryme City!" says the official release.

NC General Assembly to address GenX in session today
Meanwhile, Lewis said he anticipates parliamentary maneuvers that would leave the work session running for the immediate future. During a House Democrats news conference, some lawmakers said they hoped address Medicaid expansion while they are in session.

Detective Pikachu includes all the chapters of the 2016 Japan-exclusive Nintendo eShop release, along with further content that completes the story.

The plot involves the deerstalker-waring pokémon teaming up with a human whose dad has gone missing, in what is essentially a point "n" click adventure game. Nintendo will also add an Easy Mode for players who've been stumped by the game's mysteries. Another reward for patient fans will be the absurdly large special edition Detective Pikachu amiibo coming out alongside the game.

The Pikachu will also get his own amiibo - a real toy that is compatible with the game - that will help you find out real in-game hints during the game. The New 2DS XL Pikachu Edition has been confirmed for a January 26, 2018 release.

There are a few slight differences between the New 2DS and New 3DS devices. Are you excited to play Detective Pikachu this March?
