Nintendo @ E3 12: Pikmin 3 shown for the first time

Pikmin 3 was first announced several years ago for the Wii. But Shigeru Miyamoto wasn’t able to create the game he wanted with that hardware. But, he says, with the higher resolution available on the Wii U, he can.

New Pikmin types including “Rock Pikmin,” which can be used to break hard objects.

Basic controls with Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk. Playing with the Wii U GamePad adds an interactive map to the tablet controller’s touchscreen for quick movement.

Pikmin 3 will offer the ability to control four leaders, but “Captain Olimar is not among them. Why is a secret.”
