Nintendo will release the New 2DS XL Pikachu Edition in North America on January 26 for $159.99, the company announced. Now, it looks as if gamers living stateside will also have a chance to purchase another Pokemon-themed product that was originally exclusive to the Eastern country, as the Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition has received a USA release date of January 26, 2018. Western players will receive both episodes with their purchase.

Detective Pikachu himself also seems like quite the character; an avid coffee drinker wearing a snazzy deerstalker hat, the Pikachu in question even gets a joke about the main character mistaking a normal non-talking Pikachu for him. It's a character that has been gaining popularity within the previous year or so which means we've got a break out star on our hands. The amiibo is about twice the size of a regular amiibo. The amiibo will unlock special video clips called Pika Prompts after each completed chapter.

While we do not know much about Detective Pikachu, it will obviously play very differently from previous Pokemon games. Shortly after the excitement died down from Detective Pikachu, Nintendo revealed this incredibly slick New Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition!

That game about Pikachu as a gruff detective is coming west with a HUGE amiibo

This is a smart move on Niantic's part, as the Pokemon Go Community Day creates a special limited event for players to look forward to each month regardless of where they live.

The Pikachu will also get his own amiibo - a real toy that is compatible with the game - that will help you find out real in-game hints during the game. And while Ryan Reynolds will provide Detective Pikachu's voice in the upcoming movie, we kind of prefer his gruff voice in this trailer.

Detective Pikachu will be released on March 23 through the eShop and retail for $39.99 or your regional equivalent.
