Let's Spend Some Hands-On Time With Pikmin 3

It's been nine years since the release of the last Pikmin game. And while it's still weeks away from a Western release, Pikmin 3 was released in Japan this past Saturday. But what exactly is Pikmin 3 like hands-on?

Check out the video above to see some normal gameplay, puzzle gameplay, and even a boss battle — all with commentary from yours truly.

Pikmin 3 was released for the Nintendo Wii U in Japan on July 13, 2013. It will be released in North America on August 4, 2013. Stay tuned for our import preview later this week.


    So pumped for this game. Preordered yesterday. In Australia we get a 'clock in a can' for preorders at ebgames, and it will sit nicely on my desk. The combat looks a little more streamlined than in previous games. There were a few annoying aspects of 1 and 2 like selecting the right type of pikmin in tense moments, but it looks like that's a thing of the past. Also, could you lock on in past games? If so, I've been playing it wrong!
