Product Description

Product Description

Pikmin 3 is the feverishly anticipated real-time strategy game for Nintendo’s innovative, brand spanking new home console, the Wii U. This game is the third instalment in the Pikmin franchise, and is the direct sequel to Pikmin 2, which was released in 2004 on Nintendo’s Game Cube. As with the previous Pikmin games, you will be in charge of a personal army of up to 100 Pikmin, each with their own special abilities that will enable them to perform various tasks.

The game has been overhauled to match up to the Wii U’s graphics and capabilities, re-introducing you with four new main characters to the beautiful world filled with Pikmin, treasure, as well as various strange creatures and enemies; a world you must help the Pikmin to navigate and survive. As their leader, you can command them to build bridges, carry building materials, pick up fruit to carry back to the little spaceships, and defeat enemies. New Pikmin species have been introduced in this game, including the pink flying Pikmin, and the Rock Pikmin. The Rock Pikmin can throw themselves at walls, barriers and objects to break or smash them, and come in handy if an enemy has a shell, as they can destroy the armour so the other Pikmin can take them down.

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 playstyle with this game 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. Delve into the fun and beautiful world of the Pikmin once more, greatly and vastly improved thanks to the Wii U’s greater processing and HD capabilities and Game Pad. This highly updated game can now offer more options when it comes to game play, and allows you to completely personalise your own playstyle and strategies. (Cat Emerson)

5.0 out of 5 stars Miyamoto strikes again. 28 July 2013

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is a must have for any Wii U owner.

It's fun to play, the gameplay is easy and anyone whether experienced or inexperienced can pick it up and play, the environment is beautiful and engrossing, Pikmin 3 shows just how much attention to detail and care has gone into the creation of the third Pikmin installment.

There are three modes, story mode, mission mode and bingo battle. Story mode follows the trials and tribulations of three astronauts who have crashed landed on an unknown planet in search of food for their planet. With the help of Pikmin, the astronauts need to gather enough food to feed their planet.

Mission mode offers the player the chance to improve their Pikmin playing skills with short games i.e. 'gather the fruit' and 'battle the boss'.

Bingo Battle is the multiplayer mode where each player is given a bingo card and must ensure they get a bingo and stop their counterpart getting a bingo.

Not to waffle on but this game is fantastic and if it's any indication of the games coming out on the Wii U then I'll be one very happy gamer.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best game in the last 10 years 28 July 2013
By Dracula
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just finished playing Pikmin 3 before writing this review and everything about it is superb. It has that charm and Nintendo magic which creates such a beautiful engrossing world.

Lots of controller options, AMAZING graphics not possible on PS3 or 360 and when completed there are challenge modes plus excellent multiplayer to get into.

If you are already a next gen owner (Wii U) then this exclusive is a must buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest Wii U games so far 18 Sep 2013

Very original gameplay similar to the old Pikmin games for the Gamecube, with depth and tactics you wouldn't expect behind such a colorfull and childish appearance. A must buy for any Nintendo fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing game, truly lives up to 1 & 2. 23 Aug 2013
By DLZ

Pikmin 3 is an amazing game, I have been waiting a veeeery long time for this game since I finished 2 when I was still in school, now I'm about to start university so I've had many years of waiting for this and hyping it up and it makes me glad that I can say it was very much worth the wait.

The gameplay controls like a dream with the Wii Remote + Nunchuck, the graphics (apart from some textures) are amazing, especially the Venomous Phosmoth and all of the foliage (especially in the rain).

The music is much like Pikmin 1 and 2, very relaxing and surreal like the environments themselves and great to listen to.

The games only real issue is the length of the story, being much shorter than Pikmin 2 but probably longer than 1 (I can't quite recall), it is entirely replayable however and you will probably want to go through it again at the end.

Mission mode is the challenge mode from the previous games, it has three modes in it which are Collect Treasure, Defeat Enemies and Boss Battle, each mode has five missions in it which you can get either a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum medal depending on how well you do.

I was pleasantly surprised by this mode as it took me a good while to get platinum medals on everything, I assumed since modern Nintendo didn't make things all too difficult anymore it would be a cakewalk but it certainly wasn't as I had to learn the intricacies of each mission map to finally, after many, MANY tries to get my hands on a Platinum medal.

All in all this is unquestionably the best game the Wii U has on it right now and I sincerely hope this is an indicator of the quality of future Wii U titles.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've started having dreams with Pikmin in them! 26 Nov 2013
By Nulsh

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Just noticed I've clocked up 70+ hours on Pikmin3 and I still have lots to do. Thought it only fair to recommend this to others.

Game play is straightforward and engrossing. Whilst playing I'm oblivious to the fact that I am playing a Real Time Strategy game - I am immersed in marshalling my wee Pikmin and toggling between the astronauts to complete the tasks with the best attributes for each job.

I have played the Story mode which is really nice. The presentation and excellent environments are a joy to explore.

But by far - most of my time is spent on the Mission modes. Pushing myself to get gold awards, and in some cases platinum. Once I was hooked on the Collect The Treasure missions I bought the additional download levels the day they came out (I think the extra levels were under 2, money well spent). I still have the Enemies and Boss Battle missions to explore - and there is more download content for those too.

I played the first mission numerous times to prove to myself that all the treasure could actually be collected in the allocated time. Delighted when I got platinum award - I assume this is awarded when all the treasure is collected and a bonus award depending on how much time remained on the clock.

There's a nice Ranking graph which shows your best score for each level in comparison to ALL the people who have played it - there are some astounding scores in there! Another incentive to persevere and attempt to better each performance.

I hope Nintendo are creating more Collect the Treasure missions as these are my current favourites.

Who'd have though strategy could be so much fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet gaming joy with plants 23 Aug 2013
By Darren
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember sitting down playing the original Pikmin game on my GameCube and was in awe at how something so simple became instantly addictive.

Jump forward to the current day and I have been playing Pikmin 3 since launch. The game continues the trend of having a day structure that while initially seems an odd choice allows for quick play sessions which is a massive addition.

So for those new to Pikmin, the game sees you find a odd species of plant life called Pikmin. They have a variety of styles and each has a strength and weakness. As you explore the land you will encounter the various pikmin and with a blow of your whistle or a plucking session you will soon be commanding an army of 100 of your bulb like friends.

As you commence the game you are limited to using just one explorer, the idea being to locate your lost team mates. This shouldn't take too long but it introduces you perfectly to the new play style (using a Wii Remote and Nunchuck is really the default option and best play experience). Pointing your wii remote at the screen you can target and select enermies or objects to send the Pikmin at all by simple tap of the A button. Want to send them all in then shake the nunchuck, it's simple and very effective. You can use the gamepad it just takes a while to adjust but it's up to you, if you choose the Wii remote option then the Gamepad becomes a very effective map, so make sure you keep it close by!!!

Once you've located your team mates the game opens up even more, some individuals will play the game as one giant 100 strong army, or you will devide your team up working on different objectives for example one bunch of Pikmin collecting Spice (Which makes your Pikmin stronger and faster) while your other Pikmin are attacking a boss.
