For the first time ever, Captain Olimar will be taking a cue from fellow Nintendo character Mario with his first platforming title. Hey! Pikmin 3DS offers a new perspective on the adventures of the tiny and tenacious explorer.

Water savvy blue Pikmin, fire-friendly red Pikmin and even winged Pikmin are ready to take your cues as you explore hostile environments on an unknown planet. And because it’s on Nintendo 3DS, you can take Captain Olimar with you everywhere.

If you have Amazon Prime, not only can you get it on your doorstep on the day the game releases (July 28), but you’ll nab a sweet 20 percent discount at checkout. Hey! Pikmin is available on Amazon for 39.96 while supplies last.
