Boston Makes a Cameo in Great Detective Pikachu Trailer
Since Boston’s sports teams always want to be the very best like no one ever was, fans shouldn’t be surprised by the city’s cameo in a new trailer for an upcoming Pokémon game.
The video game/trading card/anime franchise is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and recently dropped a sneak peek for its latest product, Great Detective Pikachu: The Birth of a New Duo.
The trailer for the brand new game features a very talkative Pikachu (wasn’t that Meowth’s schtick?) and his very young human companions as they search for clues around Boston.
The game is set to be released on Nintendo 3DS in Japan next week, however, there’s no word yet as to if or when it will make its debut in the United States.
This isn’t the first time the cute creatures have been spotted around town.
Last summer, Boston hosted the Pokémon World Championships at the Hynes Convention Center.
The event was nearly struck by tragedy when two contestants were arrested after authorities found a cache of weapons inside their car. Luckily no one was hurt and the festivities went on without a hitch.
Expect to see a lot more Pokémon action in the coming months as the 20th anniversary celebration continues.
The franchise recently released its full length ad celebrating the milestone. An edited version will appear during the broadcast for Super Bowl 50.
