oh a new topic was made for this

It looks pretty fun.
I'm hyped too, but I had my hopes up for a full fledged sequel to number 3.

I actually like the idea of a Pikmin sidescroller, don't see the hate against it.

^Same. It looks rather nice IMO. I find this better than another RTS, it's an interesting take on the series.

Nintendo has plenty of 2d platformers, they don't need to turn one of their only RTS series into another one.

Also this is being made by Arzest, the same team who brought us Yoshi's Island ds and the musically wonderful and engaging gameplay of Yoshi's New Island. Consider me cautious.

>Arzest



tbh the demo did look kinda *bleep*ty (also lag-wise), but I thought that was because this game was early in development

nintendo: "the mario and luigi series is already a strategy series, so we feel that pikmin should now be a platformer"

Who said anything about it turning into a 2d platformer? Maybe this is just a side game to hold us over until Pikmin 4 is ready.

I never said they're permanently going to turn Pikmin into a 2d platformer. I was responding to the "it's better than another RTS" as if Nintendo is heavily into the RTS market.

Unlike Yoshi's Island, though, Arzest doesn't have anything to copy-paste from, so sadly, they're forced to be a little more original.

Picked the game up over the weekend at World 4 right now. It's surprisingly decent and the music doesn't make me want to pour boiling cooking oil into my ears since it actually sounds like it belongs in one of the mainline Pikmin games.

My only complaint so far are that the Pikmin are made of tissue paper in this game because they die by touching certain enemies even if they're just walking i.e. like the baby Breadbugs (called Crumbugs).

Arzest redeemed?

Probably Arzest's first accomplishment.
