    Much longer than Captain Olimar's 30 days launch window in Pikmin 1, that's for sure.

    Really looking forward to this after the Pikmin "attraction" in Nintendoland. I still need to finish Pikmin 2 though, I stopped playing after I stupidly lost well over half my pikmin. It made me feel so bad!

    For those that missed it, New Footage!

    That video is not of a great quality tbh, you can instead check for it on the Japanese Nintendo Direct at the 19 minute mark here

    It looks delightful :)

    Looks nice, but it's not nearly as much of a step up as I would have expected.

    Also, they manage to get Pikmin killed which instantly makes them failures.

    Meh, Q2 release confirmed :(

    I've used them loads of times, nothing wrong with them. Operated by The Hut.

    So does this have a rough date yet or is it still just Q2?

    Everything points to this being a June release. No problem waiting, Monster Hunter and Fire Emblem will keep me busy well into Summer.

    Is that emphasis correct or is he saying that only the gamepad can be used to play the game i.e. you cannot use pro or wiimote?

    You definitely can use the wiimote and nunchuck, not sure about the Pro.

    The emphasis is that you can play it using only a gamepad - and specifically not using your TV. It doesn't say anything about using other controllers and your TV, so I'll bow to Ecosse's well researched knowledge there.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    You can use the wiimote and nunchuk and the gamepad as a map display at once. Option ill be going for.

    I've never played a Pikmin before, can anyone sum it up for me?

    There is also a mode where you can use the gamepad as a camera to take photos and look around at Olimars height level.
    These are some samples of how they will look:

    It's sort of a cross between an RTS and a puzzle game, with lots of Nintendo charm. Something like Black and White is maybe the closest reference point.
  • Deleted user 6 February 2013 09:19:55
    Oo, the comparison to Black and White has piqued my interest. It does indeed look charming.

    @AdamAsunder

    Along with being utterly charming it's also rather dark humoured. Probably a conflicting experience for the sadistically inclined!

    I picked up the Wii enhanced play versions of 1 & 2 from Amazon the other day. Havn't played them before as I missed them on their first release on the GC. It was Nintendoland that got me interested.
  • Deleted user 6 February 2013 15:59:34
    I really liked the first one a lot. Completed it several times. The second one somehow didn't quite do it for me. They slightly overcomplicated it somehow, and it lost its purity.

    I'd like to play the new one a lot, but not enough to get a WiiU for.
