Will the president be in this game too somehow?

XD Wow that's funny, I never noticed! This just reinforces my thought that Nintendo won't just "drop" the cast of Pikmin 2. Even if they aren't playable characters, they'll at least be in the game more or less like this.

So does anyone have any opinions on my previous post? Do you agree, or disagree, or just don't have anything to say about it?

Ok, I was looking closely at the video and something caught my eye:

I circled it in red...it looks like an underground tunnel, not to mention it looks like a dead end, and there's a weird blacked out area in the map right before. Seems very likely that it's an underground tunnel

It's very possible. The image isn't very clear though, so I'm not so confident that's what it is. It could still be a number of things.

However, someone else noticed this: UntitledAs you can see, there is clearly some kind of hole there. We don't quite know for sure what this is either, but it could very well be a cave. It could also be something that an enemy uses similar to the holes bread bugs and hermit crawmads lived in in the previous games.

If caves are back, we certainly don't know they will be implemented in the same way they were in Pikmin 2. We've seen one dark underground environment in Pikmin 3 so far. That could be a cave or another "cave area" like the Forest Navel in Pikmin. It appears to me to be much larger than any of the environments in the caves we explored in Pikmin 2, which tended to be fairly small and involve lots of fairly tight corridors; so I'm leaning towards the possibility of another cave-like area more similar to the Forest Navel. The one thing that puts me in doubt of that however is that there was no sunlight at all visible to us in that area. It was tremendously dark. That means there would be no way, to our knowledge, for the ship and onion to land down there. That would imply something more similar to Pikmin 2's caves, although there may be a spot for the ships that we just can't see.

@Tainy Thanks for your response! That's quite interesting, It looks too small to be a cave but at the same time too big to be like, a geyser. I guess we'll just have to wait and see! So excited!

Random guess: caves will be back but there'll be less of them (like more levels than previous games (or longer levels?), with 1-2 per level). Seems like something they would do, I dunno.

also i noticed this is a 3 person team on a console trying to have some emphasis on 5 player co-op...and Olimar and Louie are absent...

hmm...

Olimar does seem notoriously absent. Maybe these guys are the employers of his new, own corporation

Goodbuy indebted president, lol!

No, these new Captains are from a separate planet from Hocotate, so that isn't possible. I imagine they'll bump into Olimar at some point though.

I've been watching Top Ten Nintendo whatever videos, and one of them about underrated had the Pikmin series in the countdown.

For a minute, I agreed, but then I got to thinking. While Pikmin has been rather obscure as of late, pretty much ever since Olimar's inclusion in Brawl the franchise has pretty much blossomed (pardon the pun) everywhere.

The Pikmin carrying data during 3DS/Wii U system transfers, an upcoming set of animated shorts, a third game for Wii U, and several other references from other games such as WarioWare, Mario Golf, and other examples all point to Pikmin taking a top spot among the Big N ranks. Not as big as Mario or Zelda of course, but the franchise has been getting a LOT of attention. And seeing as the Pikmin series is one of my favorites (second only to Smash Bros.), that's fine be me.

Yeah, I wouldn't quite call Pikmin "underrated," although it is in some ways. The series has been fairly successful critically. It really isn't that popular at this point (though popular enough to survive fortunately), and I'm not sure those things you've listed are quite evidence of a series blossoming. I think it's more that Nintendo just wants Pikmin to be another major franchise, and they are trying to market the series to Nintendo fans over time. In fact, I don't think Pikmin is the only series Nintendo is doing this with. I wouldn't be surprised if there are games in the works or being considered for every Nintendo Land attraction.

Much of the Wii U seems like a response to the Wii's abysmal software attach rate. Nintendo Land is basically a big marketing game designed to sell people on the Wii U console as well as various Nintendo series. In a way, I think Nintendo sees Wii Sports as a failure because it failed to ignite interest in other Nintendo games (though at this point they might see Nintendo Land as a failure too). With Nintendo Land, they've used Nintendo characters instead of equally appropriate generic themes. It's not hard to imagine someone who really enjoyed the "Pikmin Adventure" attraction in Nintendo Land being automatically intrested when they see Pikmin 3 on the shelf at a store or see fans exlaiming their enjoyment on the Wara Wara Plaza (I think free ads are the real reason Nintendo made the Wara Wara Plaza). I've seen tons of posts on Miiverse of people saying how much they like certain attractions despite not having played an actual game in the series. Those people will be fairly easy for Nintendo to persuade.

It will be interesting to see how Pikmin 3 fares compared to its predecessors. That will be the first test to see if any of these things actually translate in the real world. I personally think it's just a matter of proper exposure and marketing, which unfortunately Nintendo doesn't always get right.

Wow that box art IS gorgeous! I can't wait to get Pikmin 3! I have been waiting almost 10 years for it!

You can pry my bassoon from my cold dead fingers!

Apparently I guessed right, there will be a Boss Battle mode! It's shown/talked about near the end of the video.

It seems like you are the only one besides me who consistently posts on this thread @MasterWario. Seriously why does practically nobody else talk Pikmin around here?

August 3, according to Nintendo Life website!
I lost track of the release date myself, in the endless hyping. o.o

I imagine this game being so good, it's not even funny anymore

Does the versus mode support off tv play? one on the tv, other on the gamepad? Since you CAN play off-tv in singleplayer.

I doubt it though cause I guess we would have seen something about it by now if this were true.

Well for me personally, it feels like activity on the entire website has been down recently; sometimes I go like 2 weeks without any posts on my watched topics.

So did anybody notice some things about the bingo battle? First off, Olimar (that's right folks, Olimar) is one of the playable characters. So at the very least, he'll appear in that. I also saw that there was an option to switch from a 1v1 to a 2v2, so it looks like Pikmin 3 might be getting getting 4-player! (or you just have 2 captains to control, that's a possibility also) We'll have to see if you can also have more than two players in challenge mode.

Also, I heard the guy talking about how if you're good enough, you can beat the game in 30 days...I'm quite curious if you could get lower than that, because 30 days chock full of Pikmin action would be, FANTASTIC! (I can beat both Pikmin games within 10 days)

@Longforgotten I have no idea
