Both Detective Pikachu and the second wave of DLC for Pokkén Tournament DX launch today.
Get ready to embark on an epic action-adventure game like no other with a very special Pikachu and his good friend Tim. Join the unlikely duo as they work to uncover the mysteries of Ryme City and find Tim’s missing father in Detective Pikachu.
The game is out now, exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Detective Pikachu features:
- The ultimate crime-busting duo – Team up with self-proclaimed great Detective Pikachu. You have never seen or heard a Pikachu like this one before.
- An incredible Pokémon metropolis – Venture among the people and Pokémon that fill the streets of Ryme City as you search high and low for clues.
- Opportunities to investigate Pokémon mysteries – Become the ultimate detective with Pikachu and search crime scenes, solve puzzles, talk to witnesses and find evidence to crack the case.
- Extra help from Pikachu for beginning players – New to sleuthing or need help uncovering evidence? Don’t worry, Detective Pikachu features an Easy Mode where Pikachu will provide handy hints.
A special extra-large Detective Pikachu amiibo is also available now. The amiibo allows players to view all the Pika Prompts (short video clips) from chapters they have completed, including ones they missed finding earlier. These clips feature Pikachu’s quips and antics—and may even contain a hint.
To celebrate the launch of Detective Pikachu, a free Pikachu iMessage sticker set is available now on iOS. The sticker set includes eight stickers featuring Detective Pikachu in various poses. Fans who want to know more about the story of the game can check out the illustrated prequel story, “Detective Pikachu: Episode 0—Eevee’s Case.” Taking place before Detective Pikachu teams up with Tim, the short story sets the scene for the video game. “Detective Pikachu: Episode 0—Eevee’s Case” is available to download at no charge on Apple iBooks Store and Amazon’s Kindle Store now for a limited time.
