Hey Pikmin demo is now live on 3DS

Nintendo has released the Hey Pikmin demo on the 3DS eShop, which you can now download and try before the game launches on July 28th.

And if you’re too lazy to download the game and play it yourself, there’s a playthough video above of the entire demo. And if you’re too lazy to watch that, then you’re probably not going to buy the game anyway, right?

The demo features about 20 minutes of gameplay and includes the opening tutorial plus several of the first missions. Unlike previous games in the series, it’s a 2D side scroller.

Hey Pikmin launches on the 3DS (and 2DS) on July 28th and will only be available in 2D — there is no 3D mode in the game.
