New Play Control! Pikmin

Though the Pikmin series made its debut on the GameCube, it always felt more at home on the Wii. The style of gameplay that Pikmin employs just seems like a natural fit for pointer controls, so it was quite nice when the first two games were redone for the Wii.

Perhaps in light of the recent announcement of Pikmin 3DS, Nintendo of America has opted to bring the first New Play Control! Pikmin to the Wii U eShop in this week's update. Though the original Pikmin may seem a bit simple by the standards that were set by its two sequels, it still provdes a satisfying experience and is well worth a look for anyone who missed out the first time around.
