Because this is a real thing.
This is perhaps the most anthropomorphic I’ve ever seen Pikachu – look at all those expressions!
He’ll be joined by a human companion, Tim, but it’s Pikachu who’s front and center as the newest sleuth on the scene.
The actual gameplay is still unclear, but Pikachu is definitely a determined protagonist and ready to solve the mystery.
The game will arrive in Japan on February 3 for the Nintendo 3DS and while there’s no word on when it might make its way to North America, I certainly hope it will happen soon because I’m fascinated by this game already.
Although it’s not like we have a lack of Pokémon this year or anything.
So what do you think of the trailer for Great Detective Pikachua? Sound off below!
