Pikmin 3 Nature

Pikmin 3 is now surprisingly close to its European release on 26th July, while North Americans only have a little longer to wait until 4th August. As the first firing shot in what Nintendo plans to be a bombardment of top-notch titles to shift Wii U units, we can expect plenty of hype and build-up.

Naturally, not all current and prospective Wii U owners will have encountered the first two titles, so Nintendo UK has produced the first of a new series of videos dedicated to the upcoming release. The first part goes right down to basics, introducing the different Pikmin types and showing their abilities in action.

If you want to begin to understand the power of Pikmin, this video is a decent place to start.
