[Review] Hey! Pikmin

Posted on 5 years ago by (@P_Trah) in 3DS, Reviews | 9 Comments

System: 3DS
Release date: July 28, 2017
Developer:: Arzest
Publisher: Nintendo

Genre-altering spinoffs are not an entirely new concept in the gaming world, especially when it comes to Nintendo. Sometimes taking an existing IP and changing its genre and play style can breathe new life into a series; other times (more often than not it seems) it can work against the franchise and can leave fans of a certain series wanting a bit more than what was presented. In Hey! Pikmin for the 3DS, we see Nintendo and developer Arzest try and introduce those adorable sentient carrots and our intrepid, inter-galactic delivery man to Nintendo’s handheld. While Hey! Pikmin has plenty of the same charm that the mainline console Pikmin titles have, it lacks the depth and strategy that fans have come to admire the series for.

Nintendo of America has put out its own launch trailer of sorts for Hey! Pikmin, which releases today on 3DS. View it below.

Boost Beast is a block matching game, played by lining up three or more blocks horizontally or vertically, and having the animals become your allies. Whereas the mobile game originally featured 100 levels, the Switch version will come with 200 out of the box.
