If you are a fan of the Detective Pikachu game on the Nintendo 3DS handheld console, then you might be very happy to hear the news that The Pokemon Company has announced that they will be releasing a new follow-up game that will be launching on the Nintendo Switch. We don’t have many details at the moment, but it is expected to offer some kind of conclusion to the story from the first game.
The company says, “Can’t wait to keep sleuthing with [Detective Pikachu]? Plans are under way to bring this crime-solving Pikachu to Nintendo Switch! The details of this game are still a mystery…so keep checking back here for more clues.” The announcement of the new Detective Pikachu game is coming on the heels of the new Pokemon Sleep game and also the new Pokemon Home cloud service.
The decision to bring Detective Pikachu onto the Switch does make sense. Pokemon GO has reignited interest in the Pokemon franchise. The game has created a ton of new fans, plus the success of the Detective Pikachu movie will also no doubt make a lot of gamers curious about the game for the first time. It is just good timing.
