I'm not convinced of that assumption. No one at Nintendo has said this is why Pikmin 3 has been delayed, and the fact that all of Nintendo's Wii U games have been delayed so much is indicative of something bigger going on internally at Nintendo.

Speaking of assumptions...is this actually confirmed that there is no story mode co-op?

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

@MasterWario I think there will be a co-op story mode since there are more captains.

Pikmin 3, Only type on wiiu.

Also here is a Spoiler of Pikmin 3 evev tho its a perdition I think im 99% correct!

If you have seen the newest video from nintendo he talks about thw winged pikmin. If you look closely you will see the pikmin carry a 5 and a 1 pellet!!! This makes me believe that the winged pikmin will have onions!

They showed in the video that the pink pikmin do have their own onion. also of course with this game there have been many delays, but every time we see a new video, the graphics have drastically increased. Maybe the delays might be because of miyamoto realizing that they could do online multiplayer, in the co-op i think you would just share 100 or so pikmin. Or maybe he is seeing all the people wanting the option for multiplayer co-op?

Hey guys, regarding multiplayer, In light of Nintendo Land introducing a lot of people to the Pikmin franchise for the first time with a simplified but fantastic Co-op. I feel it would be a huge mistake not to bring some form of Co-Op mode to Pikmin 3.
Shiggy has said that "the Co-Op mode is really fun" in an interview : http://www.co-optimus.com/article/8437/miyamoto-talks-pikmin-...
I really hope this means there is a drop in drop out style system for the different Hocotate crew. It was a screamingly obvious feature in Pikmin 2 so I really hope they don't neglect it again.

Sadly, thanks to the new info in the latest Nintendo Direct, I've become very doubtful there will be co-op multiplayer in the story mode. It seems the player has to find the other captains before he can use them. Brittany and Charlie seem to take days to unlock. This suggests there almost can't be co-op play, at least for the first few days. I suppose it is possible the player unlocks co-op play along with the captains, but that just doesn't seem tremendously likely to me at this point.

I really hope I'm wrong as co-op would be excellent in the story mode. It seems like such an obvious feature. It would be a shame if not included. At least the game will still have co-op multiplayer in some capacity. I guess there also is a small possibility they will handle co-op Portal 2 style, with a whole separate story just for multiplayer co-op. In a way that might be ideal, but I'm doubtful Nintendo would do that.

I would actually prefer having challenge mode co-op rather than story mode co-op. Story modes in most games are single player anyway. Co-op modes usually have their own sets of levels or whatever designed specifically for two people. Portal 2 is probably one of the best examples of this. If Pikmin 2 had a co-op mode where you REQUIRE two players to beat the level that would be pretty cool, although I liked the challenge mode in PIkmin 2 with two players too. Lots of fun! Versus mode was also very cool but it could use some refinements.

There's still the possibility of other players being clones of one of the 3 captains because in the first footage of Pikmin 3 you could see a red version of Alph. Hopefully there is another co-op mode besides challenge because I'm not fond of the time limit in Pikmin 2's challenge mode.
