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.

When Nintendo delays a game, it's always for the best. They just won't stop til they deem their games as perfect. And it's always worth it in the long run...

You can really see a difference in texture and quality in the first comparison.

I'm glad it was delayed now

Wow, what a difference! Interesting how the Rock Pikmin's flowers changed from blue to purple.

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: No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again

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.

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

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.

I would have never guessed Weezing was so useful until I played a HeartGold Nuzlocke!

Ah...oh well. I just hope some challenge mode levels have hidden items that you need white Pikmin to dig up. Finding every treasure in each challenge mode level was always a goal for me, and a lot of the tricky ones involved using white Pikmin. Purple Pikmin don't seem as necessary now with the inclusion of rock Pikmin, but they still have their difference. I just hope that the game will force you to be creative with each Pikmin type in challenge mode somehow! They all have their own purposes!

Oh, I'm so looking forward to this title! I've never played Pikmin before, but I've heard from a friend that it's and awesome game (and I trust him!) and also played the NintendoLand version, which I enjoyed a lot, so it will most likely be a hit. Plus I just realized that the European release date is in just a couple of weeks and not the beginning of August, which I thought at first. Yaay for that:D

With the purple and the white pikmin gone from the main story, aren't we going to get the rock and the flying ones in return?

Seems like it, and as someone else has already said, we don't know if there will be another secret Pikmin type because of that Orange 3 on the cover.

@Nintendroid5000 good to see that; I'd be pretty sad if that wasn't the case.

Where did that picture come from? How did that person get the box already? Is there more?!

The game will release in 4 days in Japan, so I guess it's possible for someone to have gotten it a bit early...?
