Pikmin 3 Banner

We shouldn't forget that, despite the fact it was released in a particularly quiet spell for the Wii U and games market as a whole, Pikmin 3 is a top-notch game; lest we forget, it had been in demand for a number of years. It's also a relatively rare instance — though there are other examples — of Nintendo being rather active with DLC, releasing three additional packs.

The most recent, and highest priced, is certainly the most substantial and arguably most interesting of them all. There are eight new challenges set in all-new locations, and Nintendo's now published a new trailer that shows us these areas in greater detail; they look both intriguing and tricky. A software update will be needed to buy this DLC, but those that go to the trouble to apply the update will be treated to a free festive stage, which looks perfectly suited to the Holiday season.
