Detective Pikachu releases on October 6th, and goes for a tidy $69.95 on the eShop with digital pre-orders available right here.

As per the eShop description:

“Welcome to Ryme City!

“A place where humans and Pokémon live side-by-side. In this bustling burg lives a gruff, tough-talking (but surprisingly lovable) Pikachu who loves coffee and calls himself a great detective. This Pikachu works together with his partner, a young man named Tim Goodman, to solve a series of mysterious incidents that are occurring within the city. We hope you look forward to the mystery-filled adventures of Tim and his chatty Pikachu pal –a sleuthing team that only the world of Pokémon can deliver!”
