With Pokémon X and Y tearing up the charts, the time to release something different is once again upon us. We’ve seen plenty of Pokémon spin-offs in the past such as Mystery Dungeon, Colosseum and a game where you literally had to just take photos of the critters. But the next game will have you solving poké-crimes instead.
According to Serebii, the Pokemon Company will be releasing a Pikachu-centric title for 3DS that has players teaming up with the electric rat to investigate crimes. Players will need to defeat an evil version of Pikachu and I’m totally not making this up.
The game will also feature some 3DS camera use, as your Pikachu can copy your facial movements….which is downright terrifying. Apparently, the game has a two year development cycle, but no one knows when work actually began on it.
