For those of you excited about the release of Pikmin 3, Nintendo have released a new trailer showcasing the many different types of pikmin you’ll have at your disposal. All the traditional pikmin are shown off, including the new rock and winged type pikmin. Let us know what you think about the trailer below and whether or not you’ll be picking it up once it’s released on August 4th. local_offer Nintendo pikmin 3 wii u stars Further Reading Legendary Pokemon coming to Pokemon Go The cost of Nintendo consoles in today's dollars Wii U gets firmware update Watch the Smash 4 EVO Finals on Disney XD Take a peek at this week’s Nintendo Dow 9 things you probably didn't know about Super Mario Bros. IncubatedDucks I thought there were more new pikmin that wasn’t shown yet? Schultz38 Huge Pikmin fan since the first one years ago. Pre-ordered this one over a month ago. That being said, I’m a little disappointed with the Pikmin types in this game. The rock Pikmin just feel like purple pikmin with a new coat of paint. And where’s the white Pikmin? I thought they flowed very well in Pikmin 2. 😐 Oh well. Not that big of a deal. Pink Pikmin are awesome and the game is gorgeous. So not trying to complain, just my thoughts. I’m sure the game will be amazing and I’ll love it. xD Noteak The wierd thing is if you look at the japanese wallpaper for pikmin 3 they have the purple and white one in the background? PS4/WiiU Weird. I just saw the Japanese box art and it looks exactly the same as the American one except with purple and white pikmin added Baum 「ツリー」 Both of them are in challenge mode. But that doesn’t explain, why they should be on the cover… Matthew Like I said before: Rock pikmin aren’t completely like purple pikmin. Purple are 10X strength and do 2X damage. Rocks do 1.5X damage, break crystals, and can’t be crushed. They are only similar by wind resitance. Noteak Noooo! Where’s the pikmin from the 2nd game, white was poison resistant, and purple who is basicaly the rock pikmin. But serouisly I am a huge pikmin fan and this is the only wii u game I am probably getting this year. IncubatedDucks The purple and white pikmin aren’t available through story mode, only challenge mode. Noteak ok i thought they were going to be completely written off but this is better. Matthew Rock pikmin aren’t completely like purple pikmin. Purple are 10X strength and do 2X damage. Rocks do 1.5X damage, break crystals, and can’t be crushed. They are only similar by wind resitance. Noteak O, That makes more sence. iPedro1000 These are the kind of ads that Nintendo needs to run! Flood the airwaves with exclusive games. I’d add “Only on the New WiiU” to reinforce that it’s a new console. Pitch the games and the console will sell itself. FoxMulder900 Agreed! More ads need to have the textual descriptions like this too, it gets across the depth of the game a little more. At any rate, i’m so excited for this game!! fireheartis1 This is true man. The only reason I bought the original Wii was because of those Wii would like to play ads. It made the Wii look awesomely fun and so when the Wii came out I bought one right away. Nintendo made the mistake of thinking the Wii name in the Wii U is going to sell the system, but a lot of people are still happy with the Wii, and they aren’t going to pick up the Wii U until they see more advertisement for it. Sad to say, but people are still confused and think the Wii U is a new accessory for the Wii. Nintendo needs to fix this and get those advertisements out like now. RockieOllie 1 more month! i’m so ready for this game! Clel MY PIKMIN ARE READY Michael Ocampo I believe you meant to say their bodies are ready? ^-^ WolfgangAmadeusMozart I feel just like a purple pikmin ! Matthew Problem is, there is no purple pikmin in story mode, just in mission mode. It is confirmed. Noteak Where are people getting this news, was it in one of the articles and I missed it? Matthew I got it from the japanese website, and other news about pikmin I get from directs. david jarman I’m so in love with this game and The Wonderful 101. Linskarmo Looks great. These kinds of ads are good for passing on information. Jack5221 Cant wait to get my copy! MY BODY IS READY!! Josiah Parsons I’m surprised the winged pikmin didn’t get more talk. he was in every single trailer. Baum 「ツリー」 The ad’s actually several days old 😛 But I really love that kind of advertisement Nintendo does now in Europe wober2 Nice nintendo Uk, where is the Nintendo of America marketing effort :D. Everything I have been hearing lately from nintendo has been Iwata, miyamoto, and reggie being interviewed or investor Q&A. Where is the marketing? Ice Climbers The NA marketing should be coming soon enough. sd I actually did something odd last night and emailed nintendo asking them when they would actually market this console. I gave them some tips of what to do for free as well ( i.e. show game footage, not people with gamepads). Cant believe their efforts so far. wober2 I loved the video before launch with the “nondescript action figure”. What happened to that nintendo that seemed to know its adult audience with quirky humor. It is interesting that a huge company would be sooo quiet when one vocal social media campaign can be run by one person… sd Exactly. All you need is someone to leave breadcrumbs on social media. If done right the hype is free. Even xbox had a huge amount of hype over their poor DRM policies. This made people aware of the new console. Now with a reversal it will sell as people know about it. audi lover Aint it released on 26th july in uk thats what it says on amazon sd Should be yes. companyoflosers is it coming out in the uk before the US? odd considering its usually the other way around because amazon says august 4th in the US audi lover YEAH IT IS 26TH OF JULY FOR UK SAME AS SMBLU Michael Ocampo I just realized that the wonderful 101 is kinda like pikmin in which you’re the captain and command 100 people to battle sd I have preordered pikmin, never played one before and I really want it to be good. But i want w101 more that game looks great. Michael Ocampo Pikmin 3 seems like a must have to me but I recommend playing the first 2 before it comes out because those were awesome as well Toadlord This game not being out is the only reason I have not bought a Wii U yet. Does anyone think there will be a chance of a bundle in North America upon release? companyoflosers probably not a bundle but the console is already 100 less than a ps4 will be and 200 less than the xbox one so its not like spending 60 bucks more on the game will be a bank breaker. there are plenty of other fun games though that could have held you over until pikmin came out. companyoflosers so are we assuming that white pikmin are gone along with the other extra types we saw in 2? i think there were those mini bulborb things acting like pikmin. rock pikmin obviously replace purple pikmin but other than changing their look, is there any difference exactly? Matthew Well before I knew that white and purple were only in mission mode…. Rock pikmin aren’t completely like purple pikmin. Purple are 10X strength and do 2X damage. Rocks do 1.5X damage, break crystals, and can’t be crushed. They are only similar by wind resitance. But they will not be available in story mode. companyoflosers you could get white and purple pikmin in the story. you cant make a bunch like you can with the regular three colors but if you find a white or purple flower you can throw pikmin in and make white or purple in the story. you usually find these flowers in underground caves. i assume a similar system will be available to make flying and rock type pikmin. i also assume rock pikmin will be fire proof but i could be wrong. having said this, we still dont have any denial or confirmation of the reappearance of white or purple pikmin in this next game. and again, i think it would be a bit of a let down if players couldnt use the two new types in the story like the previous game did. timehacker11 Have you not seen any of the 2013 game-play from the directs? Because clearly winged (pink) and Rock Pikmin have onions. When you get their onions, they fuse into the Onion they have and thus that’s why you see only one “Master” onion. companyoflosers well thanks for letting me know. still doesnt answer my original question about whether or not they are getting rid of white and purple. though what you have said raises another question. if theres a “master” onion how does it decide hw many flying and how many rock pikmin it makes. is it random? is it 50-50? can you actually specify? or maybe set a desired ratio that you want? Matthew Look I know you thought I didn’t know that I have both pikmin games. I do know that you get less purples and whites by flowers or by their original name candypop buds. In pikmin 3 however, they will be only in mission mode confirmed by Japanese website. There is a master onion. However you have to add each pikmin’s onion to make it combined. Getting rocks or flying pikmin will be like the original three; sprouting them. They also have there own colored pellets too. By the way I know you thought I was talking about pikmin 2. I wrote challenge mode instead of mission mode.Edited it now. Matthew And I have 100℅ both games. 100 purples was an easy task. White and purple pikmin just left because purples are overpowered and are nothing like rocks, rocks are less broken, and to keep variety in Pikmin 3. Matthew Oh, rock pikmin aren’t fireproof. companyoflosers weird considering rocks dont typically catch on fire. odd logic nintendo XD Matthew If you think about it, it makes sense. Volcanoes have lava, melted rock. Also, most hazards endanger pikmin leaves. Fire burns them, water suffocates them, and poison also suffocates them. companyoflosers yes but not all fire is as hot as lava. then again it is just a game, i dont suppose they will be considering the properties of rocks and their flammability in development XD Joyous Killer So…. No Purple and White Pikmin? Matthew Nope. Only in mission mode. Joyous Killer Damn… Aleks My Wii U is making me bipolar or something. I want to play this, but am not much impressed by what i’ve seen. Nostalgia or just desperate for games? IDK. Now, 101, Donkey Kong, Bayonetta, Smash and Mkart there is no doubt im into lol.
