Nintendo has released a new trailer for Detective Pikachu, which features a few new characters and even Mewtwo makes an appearance.
Tim Goodman arrives in Ryme City looking for his missing father, Harry. Upon arrival, Tim meets a ‘talking’ Pikachu who boasts about being “a great detective”. Together, Tim and Detective Pikachu team up, look for clues, talk to witnesses and uncover the secrets of Ryme City. Plus, Detective Pikachu’s skills involve communicating with the other Pokémon, his “bolt of brilliance” and short video Pika Prompts, all of which might help you to catch a hint or two when it comes to finding Tim’s father.
The new trailer features the characters Emilia, a news reporter; Roger Clifford, a producer who is Emilia’s boss and Frank Holiday, a police inspector at Ryme City. There are also a number of Pokémon. Notably, a Trevenant is seen attacking Tim and Emilia, while Detective Pikachu converses with a trio of Masquerain, calls Mewtwo tedious and invades Mimikyu’s privacy.
A limited edition Detective Pikachu amiibo will also be released alongside the game. A little bigger than a regular amiibo, it will allow players to view all the Pika Prompts video clips from chapters they have completed (even ones they’ve missed).
Detective Pikachu is released across Europe and the US on 23 March 2018.
