Detective Pikachu is on the case, coming March 2018

Detective Pikachu is the newest confirmed Nintendo amiibo in months

Nintendo and The Pokemon Company have announced that Detective Pikachu will finally make its way to North America in 2018. Inevitably, every time we post about new Pokemon GO stuff we attract snide comments about how the game is dead, but that couldn't be further from the truth. It still works like a standard amiibo, though - plop its hefty stand onto your 3DS' NFC reader and it will unlock short videos that could help get you past some tough spots. Also, Nintendo is releasing an absolutely very big amiibo alongside the game. The game was initially launched in Japan in March 2016, with The Pokemon Company now deciding to bring it to the west following the announcement of the Detective Pikachu movie.

A special Pikachu and his friend Tim uncover the mysteries of Ryme City in Detective Pikachu for systems in the Nintendo 3DS family.

Detective Pikachu features a coffee-drinking Pikachu who talks - that's right he talks - and he does so just as that annoying Meowth from Team Rocket.

This version of the popular Pokemon mascot not only talks but also has dreams to become a great detective, hence the name of the game.

The New 2DS XL Pikachu Edition has already appeared in Japan. Are you more interested in watching the Detective Pikachu movie?

For those who haven't been keeping up, Detective Pikachu is a mystery adventure game, somewhat similar to the Ace Attorney titles. Moreover, this super-sized figurine is roughly twice the size of the regular Smash Pikachu amiibo!

Of course, you also play as a teenager, Tim, slowly peeling back the layers of a veritable, conspiratorial onion of Rhyme City in Detective Pikachu, with one character explicitly requesting you stay out of police business.

With all of this news on the horizon, the Pokemon Company made a decision to create a special Detective Pikachu Amiibo to use in the game.
