Miyamoto has finally revealed the third installment in the Pikmin series for Nintendo’s new Wii U console, Pikmin 3
. The new game will feature new types of Pikmin and the ability to have your Pikmin gather resources for building things such as bridges.
The game will utilize the Wii U Gamepad as a perpetual map of the game, eliminating the need to take up screen space with a mini-map. The game also features support of numerous leaders as Captain Olimar is no longer the lead character; now there are 4 space leaders who will control all of the Pikmin simultaneously.
The game will feature numerous modes in addition to the standard adventure such as a challenge mode and competitive multiplayer options. No release window was given for the game, though it looks very far along in the development process.
