I'm wracking my brain trying to figure out who that voice actor playing Pikachu is. Initial thought was Hiroaki Hirata but now I'm second-guessing myself.

I cracked up at the bit with Detective Pikachu talking all gritty detective to another Pikachu who just reacts as usual.

Could be good, but does look very strange.
EDIT: obligatory

I thought for sure this idea had been abandoned. A talking Pikachu... How odd. And those facial expressions are still creepy

A Pokemon Detective game sounds inticing, but that uncanny valley is a turn off.

This is suuper interesting. Like the disney humans and the talking pikachu, this in combination with the entire premise of pokken. I'm glad they are stepping farther outside the box

What on earth is this? Seems like an April Fool's made into a game. After the superbowl ad, and now this, this CGI pokemon in the 'real world' trend needs to end.

And man, watching Pikachu talk is kinda... unsettling.

Got to hand it to them, though... it's original and creative as hell. So there's that.

That you are.

It's a download-only title it seems, with promotional pricing for the initial launch month.

What's with these out of nowhere announcements? Is the new Nintendo president, allergic to Nintendo directs or something? Their communication seems extraordinarily minimal since Iwata passed away, or is that just me?

What Nintendo has been doing recently in favor of directs isn't new.

I can't be the only one who thought of that.

Otherwise, it looks cool enough. We need more detective games.

It was put up on a pokemon youtube channel so it looks like that this announcement was by the TPC and not Nintendo.
