The move marks another step in the recent resurgence of Pokemon that began with Pokemon Go's release in 2016. Amazingly, this particular amiibo is larger than the average figure, coming in at 5.3 inches in height instead of the usual 2.7 inches. Finally, it won't just be Japan who gets to solve cases with the world's best electric rodent. You'll have to "talk to witnesses, hunt for clues, and uncover the secrets of Ryme City".
To coincide with the game launching, Nintendo will also be releasing a special oversized Detective Pikachu Amiibo on March 23rd, complete with Sherlock Holmes-ian cloche hat (And some major league finger pointing action worthy of Phoenix Wright himself). Tim's father has gone missing, and Pikachu helps search for him. Missed some of the Pika Prompts during your investigation? Over here in the States, however, the name sounds familiar because Legendary Entertainment is working on a film based off of the Detective Pikachu game (which most recently signed on Ryan Reynolds to voice the titular Pokemon).
Detective Pikachu comes to a 3DS near you on March 23.
The first official English trailer was released alongside Detective Pikachu's recent announcement. With a new trailer we now know, along with the fact that a new Great Detective Pikachu amiibo is coming as well. But we have to admit that even we don't understand what's going on with Detective Pikachu. For fans who have followed Pokemon these past 20 years, it's a jarring change to see Pikachu talking with such a gruff voice.
