Pikmin 3 is full of family fun that will have everyone enjoying playing together.
Explore the Pikmin planet and learn about the cute aliens' powers, so they can help you find the food you need to survive and the pieces of technology that will ultimately help you escape back to Earth.
Pikmin 3 is much more action-oriented than its predecessors in the franchise, and also has a greater amount of variety when it comes to strategy. This is helped with the versatility of how you wish to play the game, as you can play with the Wii Motion Plus and Nunchuck combo, where shaking the Wii remote throws your Pikmin, and shaking the Nunchuck makes your Pikmin charge.
You can use the Wii U's Game Pad also, as it acts as an overhead map and radar, allowing you to track your Pikmin's actions in real time. Controlling multiple groups of Pikmin at once is also easier thanks to the Game Pad, making gameplay more fluid, as players can slide a finger across the touch screen to instantly switch between areas of the MAP.
The amount of versatility offered when it comes to your personal play style with Pikmin 3 is improved with how intuitive the controls are, as now you can aim at objects directly, and can command your Pikmin armies in various different ways, depending on your strategy's current requirements.
The Game Pad also offers a replay feature when a player completes a stage, where it shows the entire map at once with the ability to fast forward, pause and rewind, so the player can rewatch the decisions and actions they made throughout the day and re-evaluate their strategy based upon that.
Please note: Nintendo Wii U titles are not compatible with standard Wii consoles.
