Detective Pikachu Gets its Own HUGE Amiibo


We are still a few months away from the March 23 global release of Detective Pikachu on the Nintendo 3DS, so Nintendo still has their work cut out for them when it comes to enticing fans to grab a copy, especially physical ones for people who already have the original Japanese eShop release. And they found the perfect solution: why not release a new Amiibo to go along with it?

Granted that there is already a Pikachu amiibo out there, so the Detective Pikachu one needs to offer something special. The detective hat is one thing (which, in our case, is already enough) but they went one step further and made the Detective Pikachu amiibo HUGE: where the original Pikachu amiibo only measured 7.1cm, Detective Pikachu stands almost twice as tall at 13.6 cm. Here’s Nintendo’s own words on the new amiibo:

This extra-large amiibo can unlock cutscenes if tapped in the Detective Pikachu game, revealing a combination of hilarious content that might also provide a hint. This same content can be accessed in the game without the amiibo, but tapping the amiibo will allow players to unlock content more quickly. The Detective Pikachu amiibo figure will be available at a suggested retail price of $29.99.

There’s also a new English trailer, in case you already forgot what Detective Pikachu is all about:
