For you Pokémon lovers, you will love this news! Yes! Finally, Nintendo has released a new trailer for their game, Detective Pikachu for its Western version release next month featuring the still off-putting yellow investigator and a slew of problem-ridden Pokémon.

You can check out the full trailer below:

You checked the trailer already? Pikachu sounds cool, huh? As you can see from the trailer, it’s these Pokémon whose behavior Pikachu is trying to figure out and, according to the trailer, it seems like Mewtwo is involved in it. The combination of puzzles, mystery, and quick-time events will give players clues to solve the case. The trailer features Tim Goodman, who is trying to figure out what happened to his father, since he is lost.

The game has been released in Japan on February 2016. With its release in Europe and North America set for March this year, the game will include all of the released content, including additional content for its new release which means more characters (Pokémon included).

But what makes the game so special? So let’s check the features. Here’s a rundown on the new features in the trailer, via Nintendo:

Trouble in Ryme City! –  Ryme City is a place where people and Pokémon live together. But recently, many friendly Pokémon are behaving oddly for no apparent reason. While Pikachu and his friend Tim search for Tim’s father, Harry, they unwittingly stumble into the mysterious case of the problematic Pokémon. Can they solve the mystery and also find Tim’s father? Cue the dramatic music.


The Mysterious Mewtwo –  While many different Pokémon appear in Detective Pikachu, the one who seems to hold the biggest connection to the overall mystery is Mewtwo. How is Mewtwo connected to everything? And why does Mewtwo know Pikachu?


A Colorful Cast of Characters –  Many charming characters roam the streets of Ryme City. These include Pablo Millan, owner of Pikachu’s favorite café; Frank Holliday, an inspector at the Ryme City Police Department; and Meiko Okamoto, a camera operator for the local TV studio. Meeting and interrogating all of these characters throughout the game is part of the fun.

By the way, just in case you don’t notice, there’s a Detective Pikachu movie coming out starring Ryan Reynolds as the hunting-cap donning detective.

Detective Pikachu will be released on March 23 for the Nintendo 3DS and it will be available both on the Nintendo eShop and physically for $39.99 (this price doesn’t include giant Pikachu amiibo).
