Detective Pikachu is getting a sequel. In October, you’ll be capable of as soon as once more resolve mysteries with Tim Goodman and his coffee-loving Pikachu with a voice that sounds suspiciously like Will Arnett.
The primary Detective Pikachu recreation launched on the DS in 2018. In it, Tim Goodman and a unusually verbose Pikachu in a humorous hat labored collectively to unravel varied mysteries round Ryme Metropolis whereas investigating the disappearance of Tim’s lacking father. Regardless of it being a Pokémon recreation, Detective Pikachu had some oddly darkish themes with a plot that’s mainly a Nintendo-ified model of a James Bond film. (I’m not kidding — there’s a conspiracy by a media exec to engineer pokémon-related disasters so he can report on them and improve the ability of his information firm. That’s mainly Tomorrow By no means Dies.)
From Nintendo’s press launch, it looks as if the Detective Pikachu sequel will deal with the thriller of Pikachu’s identification. Within the first recreation, Pikachu — an affiliate of Tim’s father, Harry — revealed that he has no reminiscence of who he’s nor why Tim is the one one who can perceive him.
So whereas it doesn’t look like Detective Pikachu Returns might be one other adaptation of an Ian Fleming brief story, I’d nonetheless like to see the sport strive. I’ve even bought a couple of concepts for titles: Goldeen-eye, Thundurus-ball, On Crew Rocket’s Secret Service, From Sinnoh, With Love, License to Marill…
Detective Pikachu Returns… returns on October sixth.
