We haven't heard much from this game since 2013, but Great Detective Pikachu: The Birth of a New Duo is coming to 3DS in Japan on February 3, 2016. It features a talking, excessively Sherlockian Pikachu solving human crimes while wearing a deerstalker and magnifying glass, as any good detective should. It looks as though the human character in the game, Tim, will serve as Pikachu's sidekick, a la Watson. With any luck, this chatty new Pikachu will make it to the West as well, but there has so far been no news of a release outside of Japan.
