A new Detective Pikachu Amiibo has been unveiled, and the sheer size of this thing makes it a crucial addition to any hardcore Amiibo fan's collection.

The move marks another step in the recent resurgence of Pokemon that began with Pokemon Go's release in 2016.

At long last, we'll finally be able to solve crimes with Pikachu, as Nintendo has announced the western release of Detective Pikachu on Nintendo 3DS. This coffee-slurping, gun-shooting version of Pikachu is helping a boy named Tim find his father. Amazingly, this particular amiibo is larger than the average figure, coming in at 5.3 inches in height instead of the usual 2.7 inches.

Nintendo 3DS title Detective Pikachu is heading west in March. Except, y'know, starring a surly detective-hat-wearing Pikachu who talks in full sentences. When that game arrives, it'll be accompanied by an amiibo quite unlike any you've seen before.
