I'm curious to play this game but I don't think it will be something really good... plus, why they haven't showed some of the gameplay?? I wonder if it will be like Ace Attorney or something different...
The Japanese voice of Pikachu :suspect: he seems an old man in the body of a Pikachu...

I must admit Nintendo and Pokemon have impressed me with how well they've been keeping secrets! I can't remember when was it that we got that news or it and that was it not a peep or anything!

Disquieting xD ...in the video, it's seen while talking with another pikachu, and this other pikachu talks like a pikachu! So it's possible that he is a human trapped in a pokemon body :yesyes: ...is it a curse? (or Bill xD)

This game looks like the 2016 version of "Nintendo's Ways of getting Fans to Give Them More Money"

I don't like the english dub of videogames/anime but I think that the Italian one will be really bad...

Thank you! Later I will watch the intro since I'm curious :yesyes: (I'm curious about the gameplay too but I will wait :yesyes: )

For the people who was hoping to see Danny DeVito as Pikachu's voice actor on the american version of "Detective Pikachu", I'm afraid to say that doesn't looks this is going to happen.

At an event in Los Angeles last friday, DeVito was asked if he knows that the Pokémon fans was wanting him to voice Detective Pikachu, and his answer was:

"No. I don't know what you're talking about... What is Pokémon?"*

It is not clear if DeVito doesn't really know what is Pokémon or if he just didn't want to talk about it. But, this kind of attitude just makes it seem like he definitely will not be Pikachu's voice actor.

*He used a very ugly expression, I could not write that here, so I adapted this part of the text.

You're assuming they'll localize it...there's a chance it won't be unless something about it being localized has been said and I missed it...
