Talk about a late localization: the first episode of the Detective Pikachu 3DS game has been finally rated by Europe’s PEGI board (Ages 3 and up, as seen below). While the given date is obviously tentative, it seems like this Pikachu spin-off is finally leaving Japan!
So why now, nearly two years after release? With there being a movie adaption in the works, we suspect this was held off until they could promote the film or even release the game alongside it. This may also be why no future episodes have been made.
Sadly, no ESRB ratings or the like have been revealed for an American release. But we’ll keep you updated!
