Detective Pikachu Returns This October

by Marcus Stewart on Jun 21, 2023 at 09:21 AM

Detective Pikachu is back on the case in a new adventure arriving on October 6. 

It's called Detective Pikachu Returns, and the chatty, gruff-voiced Pikachu and his human partner Tim Goodman have a new batch of mysteries to solve in Ryme City. While we don't have a great sense of the game's plot or features, we'd wager there's plenty of investigative gameplay and puzzle-solving.

The first Detective Pikachu launched in 2016 for 3DS and was adapted into a live-action film in 2019.  We'll have to watch out to learn more about this follow-up in the coming weeks.
