So good of EG to have this up on the front page *sarcasm*
One good thing about Wii U couldn't hurt could it?
Why bother? It's not new. Would you like to see every bit of footage from forthcoming games shown on the front page?
They never acknowledge a Nintendo Direct is happening. They'll wait till after to report it with their own slant.
Along with the Direct Nintendo put a couple of new videos up on youtube
The first is like an overview video. It can be watched in HD if you want to take a look at what the graphics will be like.
This one is just a 1min advert
Nintendo just tweeted this picture:
But it made me realise, are the white and purple pikmin not in this one? I'd assumed they would be but now that I think about it I've never seen them in any screenshot or video and having 7 different types of Pikmin could get confusing. Plus, the rock pikmin are probably quite similar to purple pikmin anyway.
Pink = flying white? Lovely picture.
Purple and White varieties were visable in footage shown last December, Ive avoided the majority of footage since so not sure if they have resurfaced.
edit: that picture is fantastic btw

Maybe that explains the delays?
Flying Pikmin look like they'll make for some interesting environment puzzles. I know the main game is looking like a rejig of Pikmin 2, but the altered gameplay and control, along with MP and challenge type levels look to be enough for any Pikmin fan to buy.
It's like a complete Pikmin package. A good evolution.
I think I'll suffer some drooling issues over the next month.
I love that picture too! Just set it as my phone's background.
Perhaps the pink one is essentially just a flying white, I guess it would make some sense. Maybe the two new ones are actually just evolutions of purple and white, assuming they have been taken out of it. I don't see why they wouldn't be in that picture if they were in the game though. I guess we'll see soon enough.
I'm going to try and make myself finish Pikmin 2 before I allow myself to buy Pikmin 3 though!
I'd start trying to collect all the stuff and the creature descriptions some time back, I should finish it really, given how much I enjoy it.
The last time I played Pikmin 2 I had a game over screen that I didn't even know was possible. I was in a dungeon thingy and something fell from the ceiling so I quickly sent all my pikmin to try to kill it before it killed any of them. It then exploded because it was a bomb and my screen was filled with the words 'Pikmin genocide'.
I felt awful.
Looking absolutely glorious. That picture Nintendo tweeted is pretty lush too.
Can't wait for this to come out, it's felt sooo long. Only a couple of weeks to go.

Can't wait for this! Loved 1 & 2, and been hankering for more for years - one of the most genuinely sweet and charming game series around.
As a bonus, managed to pre-order for a few pennies less than £25 courtesy of tapping this link into Flubit - http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/pikmin-3-nintendo-wii-u-preorder-27-99-wow-hd-1597658
This is my second Flubit trial - also pre-orded M&L: Dream Team for just over £23, which was also an amazing price.
What's the deal with Flubit? How do they get such good deals? I'm guessing they amalgamate like deals and then strike a bulk deal with an e-tailer... or is it something else?

Pikmin 3 only received a 37/40 from Famitsu.

Famitsu is obviously wrong.
To follow up on an earlier discussion, the Purple and White Pikmin are in the game but will only appear in multiplayer, apparently.
Huh, that's interesting. I wonder why that is. Thanks for letting us know!

Pikmin is an acquired taste though, not exactly mainstream, but its looking excellent with every new trailer and a day 1 for sure. Dont expect it to be a system seller though.

Isn't that 9/9/9/10 which is pretty bloomin' marvellous?
Yeah, I think they are being sarcastic, though I do wonder what horrors await that would cause them to drop 3 points

Not long now.
I've still got to find time to finish Monster Hunter and Lego City. I can't see me picking this up on launch, unfortunately. :/
What is Lego city like? I want to give it a try but am unsure on dropping 40 quid on it. Does it use off tv play as surprisingly this is what I use my wii u for the most
No off-TV play unfortunately. It is a damn good game though. It's an easy one, which is unsurprising, as it's a kids game at heart. However, it's very well designed, has a entertaining story, plenty of charming characters, many film, tv and gaming references and offers a lot of extra challenges outside of the main missions.
I was never a big fan of the Lego games i'd played before this one. They felt a little too simple and repetitive, but this one has been great fun. A brilliant game.
