E3 Impressions: Pikmin 3

Now i was briefly able to get my hands on Pikmin 3 during E3 this year and i have to say it was rather nostalgic. Surprisingly the gameplay still feels the same without feeling dated and old.

I will admit though that the Wii U game pad has a very steep learning curve when it comes to Pikmin 3 but using the wiimote and nunchuck feels natural for anyone who doesnt want to spend the time learning to use the gamepad.

Here is a snipped of the Nintendo release for Pikmin 3

“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.”

Pikmin 3 features all of the Pikmin types from previous games as well as an all new Rock Pikmin.

One interesting thing is whether you use the gamepad or the wiimote the screen on the gamepad works as an overhead map that allows you to view and move the on map on the game as well. This will allow you to decide how you want to approach each level before you start.

Pikmin 3 is set to release at or around the the same time as the launch of the Wii U so stay tuned for more info.
