Although hardly a surprise, Pikmin 3 was finally unveiled today as it kicked off Nintendo’s E3 press conference.
It may not quite be a household name like Mario or Zelda but many gamers have held Pikmin close to their hearts, since its debut on the GameCube in 2001/02. After skipping the Wii the series is finally back and it’s possibly the Wii U’s most exciting title.
During the conference Nintendo spoke about providing deeper gaming experiences, they showed how the GamePad offered players more tactical opportunities when organising their Pikmin and completing missions. So it seems at least in the case of Pikmin 3, the Wii U GamePad will be more than just a glorified menu screen.
Sadly no release date was given but if you want to cheer yourself up, check out the launch trailer below.
As stated no release date has been given for Pikmin 3.
