Enlist the mighty abilities of your happy little helpers in Hey! Pikmin on Nintendo 3DS
Oh no! Captain Olimar has crash-landed on an unknown planet!
In this charming side-scrolling adventure game, you’ll need to work together with the tiny Pikmin inhabitants to collect enough Sparklium Seeds (30,000, in fact!) to refuel the S.S. Dolphin 2 and return home.
But be careful… not everything on the planet is friendly!
Say hello to your little friends…
Pikmin are curious little creatures that seem to be a cross between a tiny animal and a plant!
They’re mini, they’re mighty, they’re loyal… and different types of Pikmin will use their unique skills to help Captain Olimar at the blow of a whistle!
Red Pikmin: This type of Pikmin is very strong and immune to fire.
Blue Pikmin: You’ll need these gilled Pikmin for any underwater exploration.
Yellow Pikmin: These lightweight Pikmin are resistant to electricity.
Rock Pikmin: These tough guys can shatter crystals when thrown at them.
Winged Pikmin: These Pikmin fly and can also carry small objects – even Olimar.
Use the Touch Screen to fling your Pikmin friends at treasure or wildlife, (no worries – they don’t mind) and watch them get to work right away!

Psst! Check out your log book…
Captain Olimar has a rather…eccentric…way of seeing the world.
From generic household items to classic Nintendo relics, all of the treasures that you and your Pikmin acquaintances collect during Hey! Pikmin will unlock charming (and sometimes hilarious) entries in your log book – from Captain Olimar’s perspective!
Plus, when you tap in compatible amiibo, you’ll discover quirky log book entries describing some of your favourite Nintendo characters in ways you’ve never seen before!
