Title: Detective Pikachu ~ Birth of a New Duo~
名探偵ピカチュウ ~新コンビ誕生~
Platform: 3DS
Genre: Cinematic Adventure
Language: Japanese
Company: Creatures Inc., Nintendo
Summary: Ohkawa Tooru~~~~~ Tiny spoilers under the cut.
Replay Value:
Overall: 7/10. For the all the fun cut-scene work in this game (MANLEH PIKACHUUUU), I think it was well worth the $10 discounted price point. Would probably still be worth it at regular price (1500 yen) but it’s really nice of them to offer the discounted 1200 yen price as well. It costs more to get a freaking movie ticket in the states, and considering how much interest I’ve lost in movie entertainment in general :V

Weakest points in the game would be the dull music (nothing as nice as the trailer music except maybe the ending credits),

Hoping for continuations!! 3 cases, with a “to be continued” at the end. Tim’s dad is still MIA. But obviously there’s a reason why only Tim can understand Pikachu, and why Pikachu suddenly loves drinking coffee when he didn’t before the incident, and they just happen to talking about how Tim’s dad loves coffee. I had suspicions that there was an important plot point as to why only Tim can understand way in the beginning of the story, and the coffee moment was when it became all too obvious to me. But they haven’t revealed the truth officially yet, so there could still be a weird surprise/twist awaiting me. XD But not likely, considering how predictable things can be. We’ll see~
