Just what does life look like from a Pikmin's perspective? You're not going to have to wait long to find out — Pikmin 3 will include a camera mode to let you get right down to sub-ankle height and see the world in a whole new way.

We still don't have a solid release date for the third Pikmin game, but a new function of the strategy title was shared during today's Wii U Direct presentation. You'll be able to use the Wii U GamePad to take photographs from a Pikmin's eye view. Maybe you'll be a bit more sympathetic to your followers when you see the world from their point of view.

Any images can be shared through Miiverse, presumably alongside more traditional screenshots as with other Wii U titles. We expect to see plenty of lovely nature pictures — mixed in, of course, with lots of terrifying Bulborb mug shots.

What're you looking forward to snapping in Pikmin 3?
