The Detective Pikachu 3DS game is coming to the west next month, and we’ve got not only a new trailer, but a 3DS demo and theme as well.
With all the bizarre casting news for the 2019 film Detective Pikachu, it can be easy to forget that the game’s coming out on March 23rd! The new trailer (below) shows off more of the case-cracking gameplay, as Detective Pikachu gathers clues and solves puzzles.
At the end of said trailer, we get a reminder of the amiibo launching alongside Detective Pikachu, as well as a couple other new reveals. In North America, some retailers will be giving out codes for a new 3DS theme (you can take a look below, via Serebii) with the game, and everyone will be able to play a demo of Detective Pikachu at the start of March. Progress in the demo will transfer to the full game.
Detective Pikachu was released for 3DS in Japan back in 2016, and has Detective Pikachu teaming up with a human companion in order to solve Pokémon-related mysteries. The western release coincides with the inclusion of a second episode in the game, adding new content; also, it serves as a reminder of the upcoming film, which will be a mix of live-action and CGI and stars Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) as Detective Pikachu.
