The 3DS game Detective Pikachu is coming to the West in March, The Pokemon Company said today, and with it comes a giant Amiibo that's almost double the size of a standard Pikachu. Western players will receive both episodes with their purchase.

For those players who are new to sleuthing and may need some help in uncovering the evidence, Detective Pikachu features an Easy Mode, where Pikachu will provide handy hints on what to do or where to go next.

Not only is the game coming Stateside, but so is a brand-new Amiibo of the coffee-guzzling titular character, only this Amiibo dwarfs many others.

A new Detective Pikachu Amiibo has been unveiled, and the sheer size of this thing makes it a crucial addition to any hardcore Amiibo fan's collection. If you use it in-game, you can nab special videos with hints that could potentially help you figure out some hard parts of your investigation. Look for clues, talk to witnesses, and uncover the secrets of Ryme City! Just check him out next to the regular Pikachu Amiibo! Amazingly, Detective Pikachu apparently worked with Tim's father, so that's.something. Thus far, there's been one game in the sub-series, which was the Japan-exclusive Detective Pikachu - Birth of a New Duo for the 3DS. There's also a joke about how an intelligent Pikachu likely wouldn't take being ordered around by a trainer very well, and who knows what other jokes will be had at his expense. Sadly, Ryan Reynolds does not appear to be voicing Pikachu.

Great Detective Pikachu might be one of the strangest upcoming releases on any Nintendo platform.
