Just got the last issue of Edgetm, and I thought this game deserved its own thread - even though it'll probably never reach our shores. Or the Great Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Duo as it is known in Japan. The game is a spin-off in the Pokémon franchise, in which players work with a talking Pikachu to solve mysteries, and is being developed by Creatures inc - the guys behind the Earthbound and Pokémon Ranger series. The game follows a rather peculiar talking pikachu who, despite not being as powerful and nimble as other pikachu of his kind, is rather intelligent and claims to be a great detective. One day, Pikachu encounters a boy named Tim Goodman, who is able to understand what he is saying. Thus, the two begin working together to solve various mysteries revolving around Pokémon in the city. Meitantei Pikachu is an adventure game in which players control Tim Goodman as he works together with Detective Pikachu to solve various mysteries. This is accomplished by examining scenes, finding potential clues, and speaking with people and Pokémon to uncover new information. A lot like the investigative parts of the Ace Attorney series. The game was released on the Nintendo eShop on February 3, 2016 in Japan. Unfortunately there's no word of an overseas release as yet.
