News: New Pikmin 3 Information

July 8, 2013

We have additional info on Pikmin 3 from NintendoEverything. Here’s the scoop:

First, the back of the game’s Japanese boxart appears to reconfirm 1080p support and worldwide leaderboards. We previously knew that Pikmin 3 would support the ability to upload scores online of some sort.

A few more Pikmin 3 bits can be found below, courtesy of Gamereactor:

– Improved AI for the Pikmin
– Pikmin may become frustrated, take their own initiatives, etc.
White and purple Pikmin only appear in multiplayer
– You can point your Wiimote at the Wii U GamePad screen
Rainbow onion lets you produce different Pikmin types at once
– You collect abilities such as increased whistle range or shield
– New nice transition-landscape sections
Olimar, Louie have a role in the story, leave clues.
Pikmin 3 is 3x Pikmin 1′s length

I’m somewhat disappointed to hear that the white and purple pikmin are multiplayer only. Especially the white pikmin. I’m very glad to hear that a Rainbow onion is available, that will make life a little bit easier in-game. But the big pieces of info are that Olimar and Louie have a role in the story, and that Pikmin 3 is significantly longer than the first game.

Pikmin 3 comes out on August 4th. The game will be reviewed here on the blog.
