Pikmin For Nintendo 3DS will launch in 2017

Captain Olimar and the Pikmin will make their 3DS debut next year in Pikmin For Nintendo 3DS (working title), a side-scrolling adventure that’s also full of action:

A new side-scrolling Pikmin adventure game unlike Pikmin games of the past is coming to Nintendo 3DS. Pikmin follow Olimar around, and players tap the touch screen where they want to throw them. This is designed as an action game that makes players think fast and use every Pikmin to overcome anything that stands in their way.

Famed developer Shigeru Miyamoto previously revealed that Pikmin 4, a rather mysterious sequel for the Wii U, is also in the works. However, Nintendo has yet to officially announce Pikmin 4, and it’s entirely possible the next adventure starring the helpful creatures was transformed into Pikmin For Nintendo 3DS.

But while I’m speculating, maybe Pikmin 4 got moved to the Nintendo NX. Stranger things have happened…
