Hey! Pikmin 3DS Trailer
This will be the first Pikmin game released on a handheld, and it’s a bit of a departure for the franchise. While the first three installments are real-time strategy games, this one’s a sidescrolling adventure with an emphasis on action. The game will feature three Pikmin types: red, blue, and yellow. You can see more of the game in the debut trailer:
This isn’t the only Pikmin title in the works. Pikmin 4 has been in development for the Wii U for quite some time and was officially announced for the console last year. We haven’t heard much about the game since then.
In an interview with Game Rant, Miyamoto gave us an update on the game, saying, “We’re working on [Pikmin 4]. So, you know, when we’re in development we have to create a list of priorities and it has been hard to kind of fit that into that list, but we’re hopefully starting to see that on the list now.”
It’s unclear if the game will appear on the Wii U at all, now that Nintendo has released the Switch. Pikmin 4 could see the light of day on the new console instead.
