Last week, Japan broadcaster NHK teased an upcoming program featuring a new Pokémon game starring Pikachu. That show has now aired and it shared more on the game, which appears to be a detective-type puzzle game with Pikachu as your partner. And he'll talk.
Pikachu, I choose you! For a starring role in the next Pokémon game, that is.
As the release date of Pokemon X and Y approaches, this will be the first game in the official series with a (for the most part) simultaneous international release, and those involved hope that by doing so, they'll be able to level the playing field.
