Hey! Pikmin | REVIEW

Posted on August 7, 2017 by Jason Nason

I’ve never really played Pikmin before. While I’ve played the Pikmin level from Nintendoland and I have played the demo for Pikmin 3 on the Wii U, I haven’t sat down and started up a game of Pikmin from the beginning before.

After crashing on an unknown planet, Captain Olimar encounters the adorable but fierce Pikmin. Use their strange powers with touch controls to solve environmental puzzles and collect Sparklium to refuel his ship, the S.S. Dolphin 2. A world of discovery and hostile wildlife awaits!

Hey! PIKMIN is the first Pikmin game for the Nintendo 3DS and the first game in the series on a portable platform. It’s also the first sidescrolling incarnation of the series which has been primarily a 3D exploration game. But while the genre of game has changed, the basic concept remains the same.

These impressions are based on the Hey! PIKMIN demo which was released on July 14th. The full game will be released on July 28th.
