Pikmin 3DS for 3DS is an arcade game with logical elements and a part of the Pikmin series. The adventure/strategic series was born in 2001 and launched on GameCube with many games released later throughout the years. Pikmin 3DS is the first Pikmin game that was released on Nintendo 3DS and uses completely new mechanics.


Action in Pikmin 3DS for 3DS is presented on both screens of the console. We play as a small alien named Olimar, a character known from the series’ previous installments, who explores a brand new planet that he has never seen before. Colourful Pikmin creatures aid him in his task. He can use a whistle to summon them and give them simple orders. We beat the game’s levels in order to find treasures. We will encounter various enemies and obstacles on our way. Pikmin help us defeat our opponents. We use the stylus to throw them at our enemies or at lost objects. Pikmin come in various colours, each of them indicating their abilities, i.e. yellow Pikmin are immune to electricity and blue ones can dive under water. We control a limited number of them during our adventures, so we must give them orders wisely and quickly react to any changes that happen.
