A Wild Mewtwo Appears in the Latest Detective Pikachu Trailer

Posted by February 23, 2018 Comment

Earlier today, Nintendo released a new trailer for Detective Pikachu that showed off new features, characters, and gameplay footage for the upcoming 3DS adventure. The new trailer includes an appearance by the “mysterious Mewtwo” who seems to be a little bit shady.

Some of the new game elements highlighted in the trailer are:
  • 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.

Also launching on March 23rd is a special edition Detective Pikachu amiibo figure. This extra-large amiibo can unlock cutscenes if tapped in the Detective Pikachu game, revealing a combination of hilarious content that might also provide a hint. This same content can be accessed in the game without the amiibo, but tapping the amiibo will allow players to unlock content more quickly. So think of the amiibo like a fast pass.

Detective Pikachu will hit the streets with some hardboiled sleuthing action on March 23rd for the Nintendo 3DS. You can check out today’s new trailer below.
