Pikmin 3

A new Pikmin game for 3DS was announced earlier today during the Nintendo Direct. The game differs from the 3 console Pikmin releases thus far in genre, this new game being a side-scrolling adventure game. It's been described as a fast-paced puzzle side-scroller with traditional Pikmin elements. The different colored Pikmin will still have unique abilities and immunities. However, it appears that Olimar will be in control of far less Pikmin at once and most of the real time strategy aspects of the game are gone.

The game does not currently have a name and it's not clear if this release is the Pikmin 4 that Miyamoto confirmed was in development a few years ago. The game is set to release sometime in 2017. I know Pikmin fans might be dissapointed that this new game seems to be so different from its highly praised predecessors, but it looks to be a fun little adventure nontheless. Stay tuned for further Pikmin 3DS news and let us know if you're looking forward to a portable Pikmin.
