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!

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

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).

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! :D

Been thinking lately, that Shulk would actually make a really good Smash Bros. character. (Still would rather have King K. Rool though)

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. :P
Oh, I didn't think about Smash Bros... Hmm, I might watch then.

So based on what we've seen in the Direct it was only a playthrough of the first day, so pretty much just an elaboration of the same scenes the trailers have shown before. There are a couple curious moments to take note of however.

First is that Alph and Charlie talked with a voice and not just text. Now since it was all Japanese I couldn't tell if they were speaking actual words instead of gibberish like in the Pikmin 2 cutscenes, but it looks possible that Pikmin 3 could have voice acting. But considering all the other footage we've seen in English consisted of them shouting and grunting, plus when the texts did appear it was just electronic effects, I have my doubts.

Also interesting is you can see an Ivory Candypop Bud a few times during the gameplay. Some have worried that Purples and Whites have been cut from the game since we've only seen them once back in January, so this should ease any concerns.

I haven't played any Pikmin games. I was out of the Nintendo console scene for many years, but now I'm back and very much looking forward to this title. It looks amazing and fits with the kind of play style I appreciate at the moment. Thanks to all the information you guys are posting. It helped me learn a lot about what I've been missing.

Looks really good indeed, but you're sure it's not cut-scene footage?

I'm really glad they tweaked the ground textures. They looked very bland initially. Looks a lot better now.

Looking forward to: ZeldaU & Hyrule Warriors

Wow, I noticed an improvement, but I had no idea it was that much better! I still hate that it was delayed so long but at least, now I know it was worth it. :P

It's funny you saying about GameXplain i've been watching GameXplain too, i seen that hole too which also shows up on the Gamepad map too, looking at them pictures it was the right choice for Nintendo to delay the game take note Bethesda. This is one game i'm really looking forwards too, and will be well worth the wait.

The Japanese official website for Pikmin 3 has been completed, and, there's some good news and some bad news. The good news is that Louie is the game (multiplayer at least), Burrowing Snagrets do in fact have a foot like their Pileated cousins, and for the first time in the Pikmin series there is a mammalian enemy creature.

However, it's been confirmed that Purple and White Pikmin will not be in the Story Mode, just for the Challenge Mode. :(

Here is the latest footage with analysis.

And the UK introduction video, also with analysis.

I'd guess two reasons. One, there would be too many types of Pikmin to control at once, at least to the point that the type of complexity having so many Pikmin types would achieve is not what the developers wanted in the game, if that makes sense. (Also, they can limit the amount of Pikmin types you get in challenge mode, e.g., I wouldn't expect a challenge mode level to contain all types of Pikmin.)
Two, Purple Pikmin were way too overpowered.
And honestly, if there were any Pikmin you would have cut from the game, purples and whites make the most sense. And they are kind of a pair too; it would be very odd if they they included white Pikmin and not Purple Pikmin, and vice versa.
