We’re coming in to a couple of exciting weeks, release wise, for Wii U owners, with the release of Pikmin 3 next Friday, closely followed by The Wonderful 101 a few weeks later.
Nintendo have today revealed details on Pikmin 3’s Bingo Battle mode, which you can read about below:
In Bingo Battle, this head-to-head battle mode features 12 different stages with three different variations per stage. Players might want to grow lots of Pikmin quickly, while others want to make quick-hit attacks to grab prizes. Every battle is different, as players adapt to different variables, stages and opponents. In other news, players who go through Story Mode, Mission Mode and co-op Mission Mode and have broadband Internet access will be able to compare scores and stats with other players from around the world. – Nintendo of Europe
Nintendo also revealed that gamers who download Pikmin 3 from the Nintendo eShop between July 26th and September 21st will qualify for a 30% discount on The Wonderful 101. Result! It should be noted that at this point, it doesn’t look like owners of retail copies of the game will get the same discount, although Nintendo may change their stance on this, as this sort of offer has been offered to 3DS owners several times already.
