Can we talk about Pikmin 3?

Pikmin 3? Sorry buddy. Wonderful 101 is the talk of the town.

I would like to see more info on Pikmin before I can really say anything. I only played a little bit of the first one on my friend's gamecube. The Nintendo Land minigame also has me a bit interested.


Wonderful 101 looks fun, I'll get it eventually when the Wii U has at least 10 good looking games.

The ground textures are meant to be viewed at more of a 45 degree angle and far away.

I'm actually quite impressed by those screens. I never noticed the crusty texture on the Bulborb's face until now.



Also, the terrified face of the blue Pikmin about to be eaten by the crab makes me sad.

There is a Pikmin 3 board you know.
I'm so looking forward to this. I was pretty disappointed there wasn't a new trailer at the last ND, but whatever. We got these screens, and I can wait a little longer for the full game.
What I really hope for is a new song by Strawberry Flower.

Does seem better in some areas from the past videos which is why it's so jarring for me.

The lighting in particular seems to have improved. The DOF effect seems unchanged, but it was pretty great to begin with.

Why spend time making some parts of a game look good but the rest look terribad?

Probably because it started as a Wii game and plays in a top down perspective.
What's odd is that the Pikmin seem rather smooth despite being so tiny and numerous.

Game itself looks fun, but what is going on with the graphics of the game? Parts of it look great, other parts of it look like a Gamecube game.

The ground textures in particular are some of the worst I've seen in quite some time. I'm starting to think this is why the game is being delayed so often. Thoughts?


I've got to agree, those ground textures are terrible. Just about everything else looks very nice.

Honestly more excited about Wonderful 101. Too bad most people only get hyped for sequels.

I think it looks great. However, I'm the kind of person that still considers Gamecube graphics to be great.

Either way, Pikmin 3 started as a Wii game, and then Miyamoto decided to move it to WiiU. So most of their time has probably been spent updating all the work they did so far and then finishing off the rest of what they need to do.
