    So, I've been playing this non-stop since yesterday! I can say it's hugely addictive and lots of fun. I must have played it for 15 hours at least in 2 days.

    In slightly unexpected news, Pikmin 3 has had a new update that includes a new control option. You can now use the Gamepad's touch screen to control the game.

    I'm not sure it'll better the Wii remote control option, but i'm going to take a look and see what it's like.

    That's an impressive sounding update. I wonder if it's something that was always planned, but they couldn't get to work well enough for the original release, or if it's something they tinkered with after?

    Certainly it's a nicer set of release notes than the usual stuff you see in patches like "fixed game breaking bug, finally got game to decent resolution" etc. etc.

    I've just tried a few days with the stylus control scheme and wow. I wish I had been able to play through the first time like this, it's transformative. The accuracy and reliability of the pointer without sacrificing the control pad (or at least having to place it in the least awkward place) and retaining full camera control. Having it in your hands at all times makes a big difference.

    This feels like the way the game was meant to be played and I recommend everyone gives it a go. Superb use of Wii U features.

    @Erek

    This was my free game choice and read online that Nintendo had added a control scheme. Think I will start my play through with that then.

    I commend you on your free game choice! ;)

    I went for W101 myself... although to be honest it's because I had all the other (decent) ones.

    I'm really going to have to try this now. The game is due another play through anyway.

    @Erek

    Thanks. I already owned some of the other games. I wasn't too keen on the W101 demo as I kind of got confused with what was happening lol. I already own Zelda and NSMBU so it was a toss up between monster hunter and Pikmin 3. I don't really have the time to commit to MH so Pikmin was the only real choice. I did briefly play it when it came out last year but due to my mum passing :(
    I wasn't gaming at all then and actually sold a few of my games across my systems. Pikmin 3 being one of them.

    I've just bagged myself a copy of Pikmin on Wii for a fiver. Looking forward to playing that. However, i've just noticed I haven't even tried the Pikmin 3 DLC I paid for all that time ago. D'oh!

    Pikmin no longer available from Argos, based on the fact that it doesn't show up through the search.

    Oh my god this game is shaping up to be special. I put it on tis evening and I just lost my self entirely to it. I just completed day 3.

    Last played a Pikmin title on the cube so it's been a long time. The graphics are splendid, the music I'm already humming, the voices of alph and co are pretty cool , and the gameplay is tight as screwfix .

    I'm using the stylus control method I think. Well the gameplay and stylus In to. The default setting if you are not playing with the mote and nunchuck. And it works , I can rest the game pad on my lap whilst sitting up in bed and just point and click and whistle using the L button. It works for now. I'm not sure How it will hold up under frenetic moments but at the moment I can think and do it.

    Sigh got work tomorrow :(

    Very much this. Pry yourself away from it for now, then continue when you have the batteries.

    Pikmin 2 is harder, so if you find yourself feeling a little short-changed (and you might), get the Wii or GC back out and look for Pikmin 2.

    I'm still looking out a Wii copy of Pikmin 2. Its quite pricey online. I've played the first, which is great, but 3 is brilliant. I've completed that one twice and achieved gold or platinum on all the mission maps.

    You'll love Pikmin2. Doesn't looks as good and the bosses aren't as weird, but it's harder and has more depth to it. Cave exploration has a degree of risk, but offers goodies to fill your treasure and creature lists. They're mostly optional as far as the main game is concerned, but for completion value they're excellent.

    I think Pikmin 2 is better than 3, but I don't know how it will be going from 3 to 2. Maybe it'd be better to wait for the retro download, assuming Nintendo will package up GC stuff.

    That's the thing, I did not like the dual analog set up for Pikmin 3. The stylus and Wii remote options are game changers, for me. I need to play the Wii version if I can.

    Is there a point in the game where it encourages you to back to explore the levels or does it to and fro between them with objectives?

    @Great-Googly-Moogly

    Yup, and you will be told during one of their babbling spaceship talks after completing a mission towards the end after unlocking the fifth new location (may or may not be a spoiler for you).

    ... just keep going until you are aware that you can go back to the same planets with new Pikmin(s) in tow.
