3D Pokémon game is a detective adventure

Even with Pokémon X & Y still fresh on the shelves, Nintendo has started hinting at a new game featuring Pocket Monsters. The 3D game – as yet untitled – will be a detective adventure game. You are the detective, Pikachu is your sidekick.

The news was featured in a Japanese television report, translated by Serebii.

The report also explained the game’s major enemy will be a new, rare Pokemon (we’re reassured that it’s virtually unlikeable), while you will also encounter a Blue Pikachu who can speak. This Pikachu will be controlled via motion capture and facial recognition, but nobody’s quite sure how it’ll all work yet.

Details are remarkably slim on this one, but with a (Japanese) release expected some time in 2015, we’ve got plenty of time to get up to date.
