Straight from a recap of the Pokemon Press Conference, their official blog post reads: “The release of the Pokemon Detective Pikachu movie has left fans wanting more of the famous Pokemon sleuth. Creatures, Inc., has plans to create a new entry in the Detective Pikachu video game series for Nintendo Switch. The original Detective Pikachu game for the Nintendo 3DS ended on a cliffhanger and this upcoming game will be a conclusion to that story. The majority of the details are still a mystery, so keep checking Pokemon.com for more information.”
