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.

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? :p

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

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.

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)

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...

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.

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. ;)

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)
