Pikmin 3 on Nintendo Wii U

Pikmin 3 is a real-time strategy video game developed by Nintendo for the Wii U video game console. It is the direct sequel to the 2004 Nintendo GameCube game Pikmin 2 and is the third game in the Pikmin series.

The inhabitants of the planet Koppai are suffering from a shortage of food. Two inhabitants from the planet, Alph and Charlie, along with a botanist from the colonised moon Kopali, named Brittany, are sent to explore a planet which they name "PNF-404", although they crash-land and are separated. After Alph and Brittany reunite, they find that it has an abundance of fruit, rich in the nutrient "Piktamin U", and set out to track down Captain Charlie, and more fruit. Because the fruit is much larger than expected, they cannot retrieve it themselves. They find and grow Pikmin to help them harvest the fruit, both for their own survival and to return the seeds to their home world to prevent their people from dying of starvation.

Pikmin 3 expands on the gameplay of the previous Pikmin titles, in which the player commands a horde of up to 100 plant-like creatures called Pikmin and uses their unique abilities to explore in-game worlds and uncover treasures within them. Pikmin can be directed to accomplish various tasks, such as building bridges, destroying barriers, and defeating enemies. The Pikmin themselves come in various colours that signify their special abilities or immunities to hazards. For example, red Pikmin are immune to fire and blue Pikmin can enter water without drowning.

While red, yellow and blue Pikmin return from previous Pikmin games, Pikmin 3 introduces two new Pikmin types: rock Pikmin, which are used to smash through tougher barriers and glass, and pink-winged Pikmin which can attack airborne enemies, carry items through the air, and lift gates.

The player controls up to three different leaders of the Pikmin, compared to its predecessor Pikmin 2 in which only two leaders were available. Players can instantly switch between these groups in order to accomplish tasks more quickly or solve certain puzzles.
