Years after it was initially teased, Great Detective Pikachu was officially announced for 3DS last week. The upcoming Pokémon spin-off features a talking, crime-solving Pikachu with a gruff voice, at least in Japan. We don’t know what the Great Detective Pikachu will sound like in English versions of the game (assuming it gets localized), but excited fans have started a petition to cast Danny DeVito in the role, and someone has even dubbed the trailer with DeVito’s voice to show us what that could sound like with hilarious results.
While it may be unlikely that this fan campaign will actually come to fruition, it’s really starting to pick up a lot of steam. The petition has been available online for less than a week, and it just broke 40,000 signatures, with no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
