Detective Pikachu Returns Now Available on Switch; Launch Trailer

Nintendo has announced that their mystery adventure Detective Pikachu Returns is now available worldwide on Nintendo Switch. A launch trailer was posted to commemorate the occasion.

Detective Pikachu Returns tells the story of a young man called Tim Goodman and Detective Pikachu. Together, the two investigate a variety of Pokémon-related incidents in Ryme City, but they also have the common goal of finding Tim’s father, Harry, who was Pikachu’s partner and went missing in an accident.

While Tim talks to humans and understands Pikachu’s speech, the small creature with a penchant for coffee can get answers straight from the other Pokémon’s mouths. The two can also get help in their investigations from Pokémon like Growlithe, Galarian Darmanitan, and Luxray, each of which has special skills.

In case you never played the first game on 3DS, check out the official trailer briefly recapping that title’s events.
