Detective Pikachu US release confirmed with a giant amiibo

Detective Pikachu US release confirmed with a giant amiibo

The Amiibo will cost $30 (with worldwide pricing yet to be revealed), launching on the same day as the game.

The game sees you play as a human detective named Tim Goodman alongside his Pokemon partner, Pikachu.

The release of Detective Pikachu in the West was bound to happen eventually, as the game is being adapted into a major Hollywood movie, starring Ryan Reynolds as the electric rat. It has a little raised bump that highlight's Pikachu's snout. The U.S. release will include all the content from Birth of a New Duo along with new gameplay to finish telling the overall story.

For those of you who've been waiting, it's finally happening. Detective Pikachu is the same size as Regular Old Pikachu!

Originally released in Japan during 2016, The Pokemon Company announced today Detective Pikachu will arrive in Europe and North America in both digital and physical formats. The amiibo will unlock short videos that contain helpful information pertaining to the case.

It's nearly twice as tall as a regular Pikachu amiibo!

For those players who are new to sleuthing and may need some help in uncovering the evidence, Detective Pikachu features an Easy Mode, where the title character will provide handy hints on what to do or where to go next.

If you're wondering why Detective Pikachu can talk, well, that's not really explained. It's a shame Pikachu took this long to start drinking coffee, because he and I could've been buddies a long time ago rather than just being a cute, cuddly icon for one of gaming's biggest franchises. The app will send you a smartphone notification as soon as the Detective Pikachu amiibo is in stock or available for pre-order online. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
