We highly anticipated Pikmin 3 as a launch title and Nintendo delivered it for the Wii U GamePad during the E3 Nintendo Press Conference.
The new Pikmin 3 will be a fully reimagined strategy game like before, with a beautiful world filled with strange and wonderful creatures. You’ll take control of your swarm of Pikmin, trying your very best to stay alive and survive. Pikmin 3 is crammed packed with little treasure waiting to be discovered and enemies you’ll have to destroy.
Using the Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk or the Wii U GamePad, you will use the new controls that make it possible to aim at objects directly, players will command their cute, yet powerful Pikmin squad to different locations. The GamePad will act as a overhead map and radar, so you can track your Pikmin’s every movement in real time.
Players, simply slide their finger across the Wii U GamePad touch screen interface to quickly switch between areas, and will allow greater flexibility in commanding larger and multiple groups of cute Pikmin. After completing each stage on Pikmin 3, you’ll have the opportunity to utilize the replay feature, where players can see their results using the GamePad and television.
You will be able to fast-forward, rewind and even pause the game, while trying to access the previous mission to decide on your other options in difficult situations. In addition to the five original types of Pikmin in previous games, the brand new Rock Pikmin will bring new abilities to Pikmin 3, where they will be able to crack hard outer shells of various enemies and finally break through solid barriers.
Pikmin 3 also has a mission mode challenges, which enable players to earn the most treasure in a set time period. Are you excited about Pikmin 3, we are!
