‘Detective Pikachu’ Finally Comes To America With Release Date & Amiibo!!

Saturday 13th January 2018 by The_acz

2 years ago the internet exploded after finding out about the then Japanese exclusive game Great Detective Pikachu.

A mystery detective game similar to Phoenix that takes place in the world of Pokemon with a talking deep voiced Pikachu? Sign me up! Sadly, details about a western release for the game were very quiet after its foreign release. The only real news America ever received about Detective Pikachu was that film company Legendary had acquired the rights to make a live-action/CGI hybrid film written by Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch and starring Ryan Reynolds. Thankfully, fans no longer have to wait anymore.

Yesterday morning out of the blue, The Pokemon Company announced that Detective Pikachu will officially be getting a  U.S and U.K release on March 23rd, 2018. Not only that, but the game will also release alongside the gorgeous Detective Pikachu Amiibo. The figure comes in at around 13.6CM! That’s almost half as big as the regular Smash Bros series Pikachu. With the Amiibo, users will be able to tap it to receive hints on how to solve the current mystery their investigating.
