Detective Pikachu 2: Long-Asent Switch sequel is “close to release”

The Nintendo Switch sequel to the 3DS game Detective Pikachu is “nearly launching” according to a developer working on it.

As reported by NintendoLifeSenior Game Programmer at developer Creatures Inc. Jonathan Murphy mentions Detective Pikachu 2 in your LinkedIn page.

Describing his current job title, Murphy said he “worked on an unannounced and an upcoming project, Detective Pikachu 2.”

Although it’s just a minor update, it’s pretty much everything we’ve heard about the game since it was first announced back in 2019. The Pokémon Company confirmed at the time that it wouldn’t be just a port or re-release of the original 3DS game. but its own full-fledged sequel.

Not to be confused with the hit movie, but essentially following the same story, Detective Pikachu is a cinematic adventure game that follows protagonist Tim on a journey to find his father in Ryme City. Players travel solving crimes, meeting trainers and Pokémon from all generations as they go.

It’s definitely one of the more unique shots in the series, featuring a loud-talking Pikachu instead of the usual cute and calm version. However, The Pokémon Company has continued to shatter expectations of what a Pokémon game can be, most recently with the release of Legends: Arceus.

In our August 10 review of the 3DS game, IGN said, “Detective Pikachu provides a great insight into the world of Pokémon through its hilarious mysteries and wonderful coffee-loving protagonist.”
