Pikmin on 3DS is not in 3D

Nintendo yesterday revealed a brand new Pikmin game for the 3DS, called Hey Pikmin. But despite being on the 3DS, the new Pikmin game will not be in 3D. Which is odd, considering it’s being released on the 3DS, a console designed for 3D games.

And Nintendo doesn’t hide it: they put right on the front of box art of game: “Plays only in 2D”.

Hey Pikmin will be released on July 28th, and will also come with a new Pikmin Amiibo.

Here’s the official Hey Pikmin box art for reference:
