Pikmin on 3DS and DS was scrapped because of the controls
Pikmin 3 isn’t coming to Nintendo’s handheld systems because of the difficulty getting the controls right, according to Japanese gaming site 4Gamer.
Series creator Shigeru Miyamoto told the site, translated by CVG, “The truth is we were doing prototype tests of Pikmin for the DS and 3DS but it turned into unit management with only the touch pen and no matter what it just didn’t seem like Pikmin.”
Miyamoto went on to say that the game’s controls are the most important parts of it.
Pikmin 3 is coming to Wii U on Aug. 4.
