During today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, a new Pikmin game was revealed for the Nintendo 3DS. Contrary to the traditional Pikmin game, this game will be in 2D as opposed to 3D. Using the two screens and the touch screen, you’ll be able to explore a vast, new world on the go. The game is set launch in 2017 and is tentatively named just as Pikmin for the moment.
Pikmin for Nintendo 3DS (name not final): A new side-scrolling Pikmin adventure game unlike Pikmin games of the past is coming to Nintendo 3DS. Pikmin follow Olimar around, and players tap the touch screen where they want to throw them. This is designed as an action game that makes players think fast and use every Pikmin to overcome anything that stands in their way. The game is scheduled to launch in 2017.
