Pikmin

Nintendo’s taken to stage, with iconic designer Miyamoto showing off Pikmin 3 for the Wii U.It’s the first time we’ve seen a Pikmin since the Gamecube

In Pikmin 3, you’ll manage up to 100 Pikmin at a time, primarily using the wii-mote and Nunchuck combo – but you’ll be able to strategically control your Pikmin – including a new rock type Pikmin – using the system’s touch-screen tablet controller.

You can control up to four leaders, but curiously, Olimar seems to be missing. Shiggy says the reason for that is a secret. "It’s an all new Pikmin game," says Nintendo.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
