Pikmin Short Movies now available on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS


Shigeru Miyamoto made a welcome appearance in this week’s Nintendo Direct, to discuss the Pikmin Short Movies that were recently premiered at the Tokyo International Film Festival.

Pikmin Short Movies are now available on Wii U in HD, or on Nintendo 3DS with stereoscopic 3D support, priced at £4.49 (€4.99). A free Pikmin 3 demo version for Wii U can also be downloaded, with Shigeru Miyamoto to make join the game’s Miiverse community again soon.
