The new Detective Pikachu game has been confirmed for Nintendo Switch during today’s 2019 Pokemon press conference.

The new game, which has yet to receive a full title, will bring a close to the story of the original 3DS game and will feature a different ending than the recent movie starring Ryan Reynolds.

Very little else has been said about the game. It’s been confirmed that Creatures Inc will be developing it again, so we should expect the new experience to be the direct evolution of the one seen in the 3DS game.

Detective Pikachu Switch will be released on a yet to be confirmed release date. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more come in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
