Detective Conan?  Or Detective Pikachu?

We talked about a new Pikachu game for Nintendo 3DS before, and now we have more information!  Nintendo is developing a 3D Pokemon detective game where Pikachu will be the player’s partner.

An interview with Pokemon Company CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara revealed that a rare Pikachu it the primary antagonist of the game, and a special blue Pikachu that can be “controlled via motion capture and facial recognition.

Nintendo has stated their concern to have their lovable icon in villainous role.  It’s should be interesting to see how things are going to turn out.

The game is still in early stages of development.  It’s intended for release in 2015.
