There are few fictional characters who wouldn’t be innumerably improved by jamming the word “Detective” in front of their name. Pokémon numero uno Pikachu is no exception, and now there’s an English language trailer in anticipation of Detective Pikachu‘s stateside release next month. Here’s the skinny, direct from Nintendo:
“In Detective Pikachu, a new game coming on March 23rd for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, you can team up with the self-proclaimed “great detective” Pikachu to solve a puzzling case involving oddly behaving Pokémon and discover a possible connection to the mysterious Mewtwo while encountering many characters in Ryme City.”
I don’t know much about Pokémon but it seems to me that if a crime involving Pokémon was committed, there’s a good chance that Mewtwo is mixed up in it somewhere. The trailer for the game clarifies the plot even further, showing a character named Tim enlisting Pikachu’s help to find out what happened to his father. Take a look:
Detective Pikachu comes out on March 23rd to North American Nintendo 3DS systems.
