You’ll control three captains in Pikmin 3


Players will be able to control three separate captains within Pikmin 3, each allowed to control different groups of the colourful critters.

According to Miyamoto, this will allow players to “approach the game from a much more strategic position,” elevating the varying opportunities of approach available to you.

“With Pikmin 3, you’ll have the ability to have three different captains or leaders of Pikmin groups and you can switch between them,” Miyamoto explained. “So it sort of allows you to approach the game from a much more strategic position.

“The volume of work that you can get done within the timeframe has increased dramatically. And so that in and of itself really enhances the depth of strategy that’s available to you in that game.”
