Pikmin 3 release date scurries into view


Whilst we already knew that Pikmin 3 would release across North America on August 4th, today’s Nintendo Direct brought confirmation of its European arrival. That date is July 26th.

We also learned the names of the new playable characters – Alph, Brittany and Charlie – who must join forces with the Pikmin creatures to gather fruit to save their home, Planet Koppai, from perishing.

Players will use the Wii U GamePad, which is referred to as the KopPad in-game, as an overview of their surrounding environment.

Differing control options are available too, seeing you use either the Wii U GamePad alongside your television, Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk, or Off-TV Play with such combination.
