If you weren't aware, last week on the NHK show "The Professionals" the Pokémon Company CEO Tsunekaz Ishihara revealed the development process of a new game coming to the 3DS in 2015
This game is a detective game where you have a partner Pikachu. However, it has Pikachu that can talk, including a Blue Pikachu.

Well, my friend AAPF found a new trademark today, applied for in October and published today


This trademark is for the name Great Detective Pikachu (名探偵ピカチュウ) and could potentially be the name for this game.

Don't forget that those screens are VERY early in development. Development of this title began in July this year, and the footage was recorded in August.

The development cycle is aimed to be 2 years.
So 2015 title then (assuming it gets delays, 2016)

Strange tactic to announce the game so early and give such an indepth look at it in it's early stages.
