Pikmin flowering

Nintendo chooses life!

Source - Cloudchaser Nintendo

Nintendo of America and Syngenta Seed's flower brand, S&G Flowers/USA have teamed up to create the five-petaled Pikmin flower. The Pikmin flower is a genuine flower with a yellow centre that resembles the plant-like creatures in the videogame, Cloudchaser reports. Nintendo's veepee of sales and marketing Peter Main commented, "Naming a flower after a video game is just one more way Nintendo is 'seeding' creative marketing." Good grief. Gardening is the number one pastime in America. Related Feature - Pikmin preview
