    Detective Pikachu Announced for 3DS, Releases in Japan in February

    Originally discovered way back in October 2013 in a Japanese program The Professionals, Nintendo and The Pokemon Company have now officially announced Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Duo for Nintendo 3DS. It launches through the Nintendo eShop in Japan on February 3, 2016 at a price of ¥1,500 (approx. US$12.50) -- it'll be available for ¥1,200 (approx. US$10) from launch until February 29, 2016.

    It stars a "smug, talking, loveable, detective pikachu" and is described as a "puzzle solving Cinematic Adventure Game" by Nintendo.


    At the time of writing, there hasn't been confirmation that it's planned for release outside of Japan. Anyway, what do you think of Detective Pikachu?

    I don't know. I generally like puzzle, adventure and mystery games, but I need to see a lot more gameplay before I can become interested.

    It's probably not going to be very long or deep though if it's only a ~US$12 eShop game.

    Fun Fact: This started as a scary face mapping experiment. It's just as horrifying as you imagined.

    Oh, it's also something in the realm of 2+ years old.

    I don't think there is really going to be much gameplay anyways . It says it's a puzzle "cinematic" game. Maybe I am reading it wrong. From the trailer it just seems kind of creepy to me lol.

    I think the downgrade was necessary for Nintendo to realize that talking pokemon could be done and NOT horrifying.
