Not sure, but Wii remote is best for games like that!

Would be nice to see how gamepad is used though

Unknown sir. Not every game supports off screen play. I dont recall them confirming this, but they may have.

"Pikmin 3 to feature three control schemes and Off-TV Play"

So, yes, it's looking that way.

GameFAQs is like a car crash - you know it's horrible but you just can't turn away.

Pretty sure you can, but honestly I'd rather use the wiimote or touch controls similar to the pikmin adventure on nintendoland.
