HEY! PIKMIN – JULY 28
Hey! Pikmin takes Olimar and his helpful companions into a new dimension that they’ve never encountered before – a 2D kind. The 3DS sidescroller uses both of the screens of the handheld to make puzzle-solving and exploration a fresh and unique experience for the series. You use the touchscreen to fling Pikmin all around the levels, finding useful treasure, and defeating huge bug-eyed monsters that are trying to devour Olimar’s minions for lunch. Developed by the New Yoshi’s Island team, Hey! Pikmin seems to be a side-step for the series while we wait for the full-fledged sequel that is Pikmin 4 – if it ever comes out.
