Nintendo’s Detective Pikachu Returns, a sequel to 2018’s Detective Pikachu on the Nintendo 3DS, is now available on Nintendo Switch. It sees Tim Goodman and Pikachu (not that one) working to investigate Tim’s father, who has strangely disappeared. Check out the launch trailer below to see it in action.

The adventure title unfolds in Ryme City with Pokemon and humans living together.

Aside from investigating, players can also venture to the Hi-Hat Cafe to drink coffee or interact with characters like Tim’s friend, Rachel Myers. Thus far, Detective Pikachu Returns has received mixed reviews from critics, with a 67 Top Critic Average on OpenCritic. Stay tuned for more details on future updates and additions in the meantime.
