New to Pikmin 3 are a number of new multiplayer modes that really take the strategic depth and fun of Pikmin to new levels.
You’ll have to compete with another player to try and kill all of their Pikmin or try and collect enough Fruit in a certain order in a unique Bingo style. Where the first player to find all the fruit in a certain order (based on his game board) wins. It sounds more boring than it looks, once you see it in action you’ll be a believer and see how awesome it is.
It looks like a heck of a lot of fun.
Sadly Pikmin 3 will NOT contain a co-op multiplayer mode, or online multiplayer. This is an extremely disappointing fact, but to be expected from Nintendo (sadly).
Pikmin 3’s release date is next month on August 4 2013.
Here is an Pikmin 3 Developer Direct Interview with Shigeru Miyamoto from E3 2013.
Pikmin 3 looks absolutely fantastic, and I can’t wait to buy the game as soon as I get a WiiU console.
