Pikmin 3 is a fully reimagined; mass-action strategy title from the critically acclaimed Pikmin series. Players will discover a beautiful world filled with strange creatures and take command of a swarm of ant-like Pikmin trying to survive. The world is densely packed with treasures and enemies; which makes the game much more action focused and fills it with layers of potential strategies and paths adding greater replayability to challenge modes.
- Players can play using Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk-based controls or the Wii U GamePad controller. With new intuitive controls that make it possible to aim at objects directly players can command their tiny yet powerful squads in different ways.
- The GamePad acts as an overhead map and radar to track Pikmin movements in real time. Players can slide a finger across the touch screen to quickly switch between areas giving greater flexibility in commanding multiple groups of Pikmin.
