Pikmin 3 out this weekend

Exclusive Nintendo franchise arrives on Wii U

Posted on

Nintendo has confirmed that Pikmin 3 will be launching in stores and in the Nintendo eShop on Aug. 4, exclusively for the Wii U console.

Pikmin 3 tells the story of three space explorers – Alph, Brittany and Charlie – who crash land on an alien planet and must collect fruit for their starving home planet. To accomplish their goal of collecting fruit, the explorers must gather and lead an army of different Pikmin creatures, battle the local wildlife and work to solve puzzles, all before the sun goes down at the end of each day.

"Pikmin 3 is the first in a string of major Wii U games that will launch between now and the end of the year," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing.

Pikmin 3 offers several uses for the Wii U GamePad controller. In gameplay, the GamePad can be used as a map of the game world, or to take pictures at the eye level of Pikmin in a new, first-person camera mode. Once snapped, the pictures taken in this mode can be posted to Miiverse with an accompanying personalized message.
