The Pokémon Company and Nintendo have today announced Detective Pikachu, a new mystery title releasing this year on Nintendo 3DS. The full title of the game is Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Combination.
You can see the trailer for the game above. It appears only to be getting a release in Japan at this time, but a Western release is most likely on the table since most games under the Pokémon umbrella are released in Europe and North America.
The IP title was trademarked back in 2013 and teased ever so slightly, and we’d heard nothing about it since until The Pokémon Company debuted the trailer on their YouTube channel.
The game will be released in Japan digitally on February 2.
