Pikmin 3, one of Nintendo's biggest Wii U titles, is slated to arrive on the new console this spring. The news comes via the latest Iwata Asks column, which centers around the Wii U GamePad. The discussion itself really has nothing to do with Pikmin 3, though the release window is mentioned in a note.
We enjoyed our time with the game at E3, particularly the more interactive environment and beautiful presentation.
The Return of an Army. Pikmin 3 is a fully reimagined, mass-action strategy title from the critically acclaimed Pikmin series. Players will discover a beautiful world filled with strange creatures and take command of a swarm of ant-like Pikmin trying to survive. The world is densely packed with treasures and enemies, which makes the game much more action focused and fills it with layers of potential strategies and paths, adding greater re-playability to challenge modes.
