It looks like 2019 is set to hold some great games, in addition to some interesting looking gaming movies. Since it was revealed last year, Detective Pikachu has received mixed feedback from fans. With the Detective Pikachu trailer 2 reveal it seems that fans might turn their heads into a positive light – the movie is looking a little awesome to say the least.
OK hands up that the Detective Pikachu trailer 2 doesn’t give us too much more than we already knew, on the flip side though it does show us a little more about what the movie plot has on offer.
What the trailers so far have given away is the fact that the plot ties in with a Pokemon that can solve crimes (Pikachu) which isn’t dissimilar to the 3DS Detective Pikachu game from last year. Ryan Reynolds is the main attraction voicing the sparky-tailed Pokemon, and Justice Smith (Tim Goodman) crosses paths to make a unique discovery – he can communicate with Pikachu. Goodman works together on a journey to find Harry, Goodman’s father who has suspiciously been kidnapped.
