Pikachu as a detective in new 3DS game

What does Pikachu and Sherlock have in common?

There's a new upcoming Pokemon 3DS game starring Pikachu... as a detective with a Sherlock Holmes-esque hat. The game is Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Duo and is quite a weird concept but the weirdiest about it is the talking Pikachu's voice.

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.”

Meitantei Pikachu: Shin Konbi Tanjyou will be released on the Nintendo eShop on February 3 in Japan. It’s priced at 1,500 yen ($12.65), but will be available for the special price of 1,200 yen ($10.12) until February 29.

I could totally hug this clever coffee drinking Pikachu! You can watch him in the teaser below.
