There are quite a number of control options for the highly anticipated Pikmin 3; the Wii U GamePad, Wii U Pro Controller, Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk, and now it's been confirmed that you can use the standard Wii Remote and Nunchuk.

In our first impressions of the game, we were only able to test it out with the Wii Remote Plus, so this is good news for those that still have original Wii Remotes stored away; that said, playing with the Wii Remote Plus will give you a better experience with the upcoming title.

We've just about reached the final hurdle, as Captain Olimar and co. are set to land on the Wii U on 26th July across Europe, and a week later in North America on 4th August. So which control method will you choose on your journey through Pikmin 3? Let us know in the comments section below.
