3DS sidescroller Hey! Pikmin release date revealed

New amiibo to launch alongside it.

Pikmin's portable side-scrolling spin-off, Hey! Pikmin, now has a release date of 28th July on 3DS.

Nintendo announced the release date at the top of its Nintendo Direct stream tonight.

Like other Pikmin titles, this handheld outing puts players in the space boots of stranded astronaut Captain Olimar as he befriends sentient vegetables and manipulates them into doing his bidding. It's not as cruel as it sounds, given that these things don't exactly excel at self-preservation, but now they have a purpose: to get you off this rock!

A new Pikmin amiibo, portraying the colourful critters clustered around a rock, will launch the same day. I'm digging the red one's "paint me like one of your french girls" pose.
