So, Nintendo hasn't said anything whatsoever about the Pikmin animated shorts since they announced them (if my memory serves well anyway). I guess by this point they won't come out until after the game has released.

That's too bad. I was looking forward to these to build some hype or Pikmin 3. :/

I was wondering the same thing. Where is anything about these Pikmin short clips?

This will be my next big game I'd say. I liked the first game more than the second actually (not really sure why honestly), but I think this one has a good chance of surpassing both from the looks of it.

Did anyone else think 2 got crazy hard after SPOILER you went back to the planet for Louie? (however you spell it)

Yes, the final cave was especially hard though

There's one freakin' floor, I think in the SPOILER Hole of Heroes or Cavern of Chaos SPOILER, where you land on a stump in the middle of a water pool...one of the most terrible floors if you're going for a no Pikmin death run. At least there's only one treasure, so it doesn't take long to grab it and get the heck out of there.

Actually that area is in both caves. I don't mind it since I have a strategy. First I carefully move the entire squad off the stump onto the dry land, and take out any creatures in that area. Then I leave it to the Blues to take care of everything else. Also, the one in the Cavern of Chaos has one of my favorite soundtracks in the game, and it is only used in that one sublevel.

I just love the mysterious, eerie vibe it gives off, like as if you are going through a lifeless watery cave.

I think one of them is in the Dream Den, I know because that particular one has the Graitling Groink. (however you spell the name of that stupid walking fish, lol)

In a way that's kind of what you have to do...your Pikmin aren't safe on that stump and there's only a small dry path off. That's probably the reason it gets frustrating, especially the one with the Gatling Groink, that nightmare! Starts sniping my Pikmin before I can even call them all. I wonder what'll happen when I get there in my no reset run; just run fast I guess, and hope the Gatling Groink spawns on the other side of the floor.

I'm often so concerned about keeping every single one of my Pikmin alive...makes me wonder if anyone actually sacrifices Pikmin as part of their strategy...

I just read about that earlier today. Strange that I didn't notice it...for me it seems as familiar as just about every other underground track in the game.

I don't know about you guys but I found a little surprise in my pants when the waterwraith came early when I played Submerged Castle for the first time

Actually I was wrong, it's the Hole of Heros that has that sublevel with the one soundtrack with the Dream Den having that sublevel too just with different music. I know this because I just went through Cavern of Chaos yesterday (playing P2 as we speak) and the sublevel wasn't there.

Oh, and as for dealing with Gatling Groinks, I always have an Ultra-Bitter Spray set aside just for them.

I still hate those things. SPOILER Especially that one level in challenge mode with a bunch of them SPOILER

Not for me. SPOILER For me, they are crazy frightening in Submerged Castle, since you don't have the purple Pikmin. But in challenge mode, you start off with them, so it's not that bad (still kinda scary).

That reminds me, I wonder if Pikmin 3 will still have the caves. Not necessary, but they were fun. (not to mention the game had a crapload of bosses, lol)

GameXplain on YouTube has an analysis video (I think it's Pikmin 3 Analysis Part 4) where he noticed something that looked like a hole from Pikmin 2, so I think it's safe to say that it'll be back
Plus in Pikmin 3 Analysis Part 5, he noticed that some clips didn't have a timer at the top of the screen that shows how close you are to sunset, so he speculated that the footage was in a cave area underground where time does not pass, just like in Pikmin 2!

The WaterWraith is so cool I had to name my PSN account after its frightening glory.

The Water Wraith was terrifying and my Brother and Father rushed into the living room after numerous shouts and screams were emitted from it. I got my vengeance though after it had Spoiler thrown on it and ran around the room with its arms Spoiler.

Maybe the Waterwraiths will make a return in Pikmin 3. They'll be even scarier in HD!

So there is going to be a Pikmin 3 specific Nintendo Direct tomorrow, through granted Japanese only at this time of writing. Are any of you expecting a surprise and such? I for one am not getting my hopes up too high and am just anticipating more footage and whatnot. The only things I can think of in terms of surprises is Olimar's confirmation in the story mode and one of the new Captains (most likely Alph) announced as a new Smash Bros. character.

@WingedFish I'm not sure I'll watch. I don't want any more spoilers.
Oh, I didn't think about Smash Bros... Hmm, I might watch then.
