Detective Pikachu Game Coming To Nintendo Switch

Solve the mystery.

1 Comments

A new version of the Nintendo 3DS game Detective Pikachu is coming to Nintendo Switch. The Pokemon Company announced this during its 2019 Press Conference today.

"The details of this game are still a mystery," reads a line from the company's announcement. It seems more details will be announced at a later date.

The Switch game will resolve the cliffhanger from the 3DS game, The Pokemon Company said. The ending to the Switch game will be different to the movie starring Ryan Reynolds.

The new Detective Pikachu game for Switch is being developed by Creatures Inc., the Japanese studio that has worked alongside The Pokemon Company on numerous Pokemon games over the years.

It sounds like it's early days for the new Detective Pikachu game for Switch, as The Pokemon Company said developer Creatures Inc. "has plans to create" the game but it is unclear if development has begun.

In addition to the new Detective Pikachu game for Switch, a sequel to the Detective Pikachu movie is reportedly in the works. That is not a big surprise as the movie was generally well-received and it made a lot of money.
