Following images last week of a Pikachu that would react to a user's facial expressions, new information says that Nintendo is working on a 3D Pokemon detective adventure with a Pikachu as the player's sidekick.
The game (detailed via Serebii) is being developed for 3DS and is targeting a 2015 release. The game is said to feature a rare Pikachu as the game's villain--although there are concerns about the game's audience liking a villainous Pikachu, Serebii reports.
A special blue Pikachu will also feature, who can speak, though it is unclear if the talking Pikachu is the game's antagonist.
The information was revealed as part of a Japanese TV interview with Pokemon Company boss Tsunekazu Ishihara.
Two screenshots were shown, with a player holding a magnifying glass and navigating a 3D environment on the search for clues.
A beta version of a sequel to puzzle game Pokémon Trozei was also shown, along with the information that the game is aiming to be a downloadable release.
