PSPikmin is a PSP port (all firmware, even OFFICIAL FIRMWARE) of the game Pikmin made in Gamecube and Wii. In the game you play as two austrounauts that land on the planet in search for treasure. They gain help in finding treasure from the native creatures of the planet called Pikmin. The austronauts (named Olimar and Louie, and sometimes Mr. President) go and find treasure's in 5 different areas and dozens of holes that contain many levels. At the same time, they must fight enemies of the Pikmin using the Pikmin as "plant weapons". PSPikmin will feature the five Pikmin in the game, Purple, White, Red, Blue, and Yellow. And the game will feature some new Pikmin and enemies (such as Green, Orange, and Pink Pikmin!). This game might also feature some Multiplayer action
(ad-hoc mostly cause we cant guarantee online mode). And will feature new areas never seen in the original Pikmin games!
Four years after the events of Pikmin 2, The President of the Hocatate Freight Co. has spent billions and billions to create a new device that will shrink anything, no matter how massive, to an extremely small size. To do this, sadly, The President built up a massive debt, and the deadline for repayment is closer than expected. Olimar and Louie are then called to return to PNF-404 to find more treasures from the planet, and to repay the debt once again. When the group arrives at PNF-404's orbit, a strange magnetic feild pulls the Hocatate Ship into the atmosphere at an alarmingly fast rate, and peices of Olimar and Louies suit are scattered throughout the planet. Unable to leave the planets orbit due to the magnetic feild, Olimar and Louie set out on their biggest, pocket-sized adventure yet!

Added Note: Don't expect much updates from me. I'm barely finishing up the school year and I need to get ready for my senior year. -Trollmar
Before I continue onward with this news update, I still need people to help me out.
Coders (has to be able to code 2d game)
Mapper? (this one not so sure about)
I will explain this
I am completely aware that the PSP modding scene will die soon. I am also aware that I have entered the modding scene completely unprepared, expecting for help to just pop out when I needed it. That was a huge mistake in my part. I have now realized that now there is no going back on what I started unless I want this project to die out (Which is something I don't want to happen). As of today I will try my best not to make any mistakes until this project is finished. After that I can be the huge f*ck up that I am.
So without further ado (English for without anymore bullsh*t), I will announce the new changes.
A while back me and senior were talking about the structure of PSPikmin. He mentioned changing PSPikmin into 2d. But being the stubborn d*ckstain that I am, I ignored the idea until today. After some consideration, PSPikmin will make the transition from 3d to 2d. As of the time writing this, I still haven't decided what type of 2d PSPikmin will be, but I am hoping that I will go along the lines of something like: (Note: this is concept made by someone else. I didnt make this art. Give credit to them not me)
Also, as of this writing, I have been working on some sprites. Some of you may have seen them in the image feed but just in case:
I started these sprites yesterday at the time of this writing. These are not permanent, as I feel they could use more work. If you like to help out in making better sprites, feel free to do so.
I will end it here for now since thats about all there is to the update besides a few other non important points.
