Detective Pikachu Returns is an adventure game developed by Game Freak, and published by Nintendo and The Pokemon Company.
It serves as a direct sequel to the 3DS game Detective Pikachu and is once again set in Ryme City, with the titular character and his human partner Tim Goodman returning as protagonists.
Datamining of mobile title Pokemon Masters EX after a recent update suggests The Pokemon Company has a presentation scheduled for early next month.
The sequel to Detective Pikachu has finally been formally unveiled, with the titular coffee-loving detective and his human partner set to return to the spotlight later this year.
A leaker seems to be hinting at imminent announcements that Pokemon and Pikmin fans will want to keep an eye on.
First confirmed to be in development over three years ago, the Detective Pikachu sequel has been MIA ever since.
Announced back in 2019, there's been no word on the Detective Pikachu sequel since then- though it seems the project is still alive and kicking.
Is it a sequel? Is it a re-relese? Who knows?
