Nintendo has announced that a brand new Pikmin game is in the works, this time for the Nintendo 3DS.

Pikmin for Nintendo 3DS, as it’s currently called, is due to arrive in 2017 for Nintendo’s latest handheld, and will be the newest entry to the franchise since Pikmin 3 launched for Wii U. In addition, it’ll be the first Pikmin title to be developed for a handheld.

Now, before you go thinking that the game will be similar to Pikmin 3, it’s worth noting that this won’t be a 3D affair, rather than a side-scrolling game with individual Pikmin being thrown into the game by Captain Olimar.

The game will star Red, Blue, and Yellow Pikmin, as well s the Bulborb enemies.

Details are pretty thin right now, but a trailer for the game was unveiled at the end of the Nintendo Direct broadcast yesterday.

Looks a little like Lemmings, right?
