Meanwhile, Detective Pikachu will becoming on March 23. It is available for prepurchase in the eShop. In the game, you’ll partner with the cute Pokemon to investigate, take notes, and meet with other Pokemon creatures to unravel mysteries in Ryme City. The game has more than 150 animated cut scenes.

A remake of Luigi’s Mansion will also arrive on the 3DS later this year. With this game, you’ll see the mansion map on the bottom screen, so it will be harder to get lost. And there will be a new boss rush mode as well.
