Yesterday, the Pokémon Company hit us with a surprise trailer for Great Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Combination (fan translation), a cinematic adventure game launching February 3rd in Japan. Unfortunately an official English trailer wasn’t released, but thanks to Reddit user solarsaturn9 and the fabulous YouTube channel GameXplain, a subtitled version of the Japanese trailer now exists. Those excited for the new game—or anyone on the fence and wanting a closer look—can watch the trailer above to get a better idea of what Great Detective Pikachu is about.

Hi, I'm Alex. I'm a lifelong Nintendo fan and PC gamer. A few of my all-time favourite video games include The Legend of Zeldas: Twilight Princess and Majora's Mask, Mass Effect 2, Rayman 2, and most importantly, Xenoblade. If I ever catch you making a "really feeling it" joke in our comments, you can bet your ass I'll hide it, you casual scum. Feel free to send me a private message if you have something you'd like to discuss... or if you just want to say hi!
