During today’s Nintendo Direct, we got the surprise reveal of a new Pikmin game for Nintendo 3DS. As with previous entries in the franchise, you’ll progress through the game with the assistance of Pikmin that vary in color and abilities. Unlike other games, Pikmin for Nintendo 3DS is a 2D sidescroller! This handheld version of Pikmin is designed with fast-paced action in mind, and you control your Pikmin by tapping the screen. It’s unclear if this is Pikmin 4 (which was confirmed to be in development) or a separate game, but it’s launching in 2017.
