This seems kind of weird, and that deep voice for the pikachu is a bit jarring. It's hard to know what to think without much information available yet though. It is pretty interesting to see Pokemon games expanding to new genres so I'll be keeping an eye on this.

I thought they'd given up on this game because we literally didn't hear anything for 2 years about this game. The graphics look very impressive for 3DS. The deep voice for Pikachu I guess means to me at least that its an older/adult Pikachu.
