Details


Pikmin 3 is a fully reimagined, mass-action strategy title from the
critically acclaimed Pikmin series. Players will discover a beautiful
world filled with strange creatures and take command of a swarm of
ant-like Pikmin trying to survive. The world is densely packed with
treasures and enemies, which makes the game much more action focused and
fills it with layers of potential strategies and paths, adding greater
replayability to challenge modes.




  • Players can play using Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk-based controls or
    the Wii U GamePad controller. With new intuitive controls that make it
    possible to aim at objects directly, players can command their tiny,
    yet powerful, squads in different ways.


  • The GamePad acts as an overhead map and radar to track Pikmin
    movements in real time. Players can slide a finger across the touch
    screen to quickly switch between areas, giving greater flexibility in
    commanding multiple groups of Pikmin.


  • The greater processing and HD capabilities of the Wii U console are
    put to extensive use, resulting in a more intricately designed world,
    enhanced ant-like movement of the Pikmin and precisely detailed
    overhead views for enabling easier strategic use of the Pikmin.


  • After completing a stage, the replay feature allows players the option
    to review their results using the GamePad and TV. Fast-forward, rewind
    or pause while assessing the previous mission to decide on other paths.


  • In addition to the five original types of Pikmin encountered in
    previous games, the new Rock Pikmin bring powerful new abilities and
    are able to crack hard outer shells of enemies and break through solid
    barriers.


  • Mission Mode challenges players to earn the most treasure in a given
    time.
