Rumour: Detective Pikachu Could Be Episodic

The intriguing Detective Pikachu could well be an episodic series. The game is roughly five hours long and when players reach the end of the game (spoiler ahead) Mewtwo pops up and a ‘To Be Continued’ message is displayed to the user. It is only an eShop title, but the hint that it is episodic is backed up by Detective Pikachu’s subtitle which is ‘birth’ of the deductive adventure. Let’s hope he embarks on many more crime solving adventures!
