First Look at the Talking Pikachu Detective Game in Action

Hinted at back in 2013, Pikachu will play a talking detective in the upcoming 3DS game Great Detective Pikachu: The Birth of a New Duo. Today, we finally get to see the game's debut teaser. The Japanese title is Meitantei Pikachu: Shin Konbi Tanjyou ("konbi" can also mean "combination" as well as "pair" or "team"). In the game, you team up with a talking detective Pikachu to solve mysteries. You know, one that can say more than "pika pika".

According to the teaser, this Pikachu can not only speak, but also drink coffee!

Meitantei Pikachu: Shin Konbi Tanjyou will be released on the Nintendo eShop on February 3 in Japan. It's priced at 1500 yen ($18), but will be available for the special price of 1200 yen ($14) until February 29.


    Pikachu: "The murderer was...YOU WASN'T IT?


    Pikachu "...."

    Punishment is a thunderbolt to the head lol

    This is one of the most surreal things I've seen all week. Kind of disappointed P.I Pikachu doesn't have a gravelly smokers voice though.

    That voice was a lot deeper than I would have imagined for a pokemon like Pikachu. I was thinking something like a 15-19 years old voice that is quite as deep.

    Firstly the voice is waaaaaaaay deeper than any other pikachu voice. Secondly he looks ridiculous running around bi-pedal.
