Boston’s scenic skyline makes a comeo alongside world famous cartoon character and Japanese icon Pikachu for a Pokemon commercial advertising a new video game.
The game reportedly stars the yellow pocket monster as a detective. It’s not clear whether Boston is the city in which the game takes place.
“The game — which loosely translates to Great Detective Pikachu — stars everyone’s favorite electric rat as a crime-solving gumshoe, complete with a deerstalker hat a la Sherlock Holmes,” the Verge reports.
“He even talks, because it’s hard to interrogate criminals if you only say “pika.” Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on if or when the game will be available in English, but it’s launching soon in Japan, hitting the Nintendo 3DS as a digital download on February 3rd.”
Take a look at the commercial below:
