The Game Logo is Different Now.

#1G-Force88Posted 1/23/2013 7:09:06 AM
Just finished watching the North American Nintendo Direct. Unfortunately, they didn't really show any new gameplay footage. There were only 2 new things I picked up about the game, and neither of them were a very big deal.

First, the logo seems to have tweaked slightly, in that the 3 is made of red flowers now, instead of the blue-violet ones from before. That probably means either that the new Pikmin are gonna have red flowers instead of blue-purple, or that there is another Pikmin type in the game with red flowers that is more significant than the ones we've seen with blue-purple.

The other thing is that they're planning to implement a feature where you can take gameplay screenshots from a Pikmin's-eye view and post them on Miiverse. I'm not terribly excited for that because Pikmin enemies already creeped me out, so getting an actual in-universe, up-close-and-personal view is just so damn far out of my comfort zone.

I'm sorry that there wasn't more to share.

Just imagine that you see some really funny quote here.

I'm fine with the camera feature.

BTW, you seriously think that is RED?
Looks Orange, IMO.

But lets see what the internet thinks...

No, I thought it was orange too.

I'm still a bit curious as to why they changed it.

I thought the blueish flowers looked good on both the pink pikmin and the rock pikmin. Hopefully the logo represents another new pikmin type that we have not yet seen.

A while ago, I was thinking about how Pikmin 3 would have Miiverse functionality. I was excited about seeing a whole community of people drawing Pikmin 3 stuff and talking about the game. The camera feature looks pretty damn awesome, although I imagine it could be pretty difficult to take pictures of certain enemies without getting attacked. Did you see the ones of the bulbear getting progressively closer. Yikes.

I was really hoping for more info out of today's presentation, but I enjoyed it anyways. They had some new games to announce and some interesting info on the Wii U system updates.

If I had to guess, I would say that they likely change the flowers of the new Pikmin.

Next screen shot we see may have the Rock Pikmin with Orange flowers instead of blue.

I liked the purple/blue (personally my favorite color), but Orange will make them stand-out more.

Maybe some play-testers at Nintendo said that purple is easy to confuse with pinkż?

ORLY?
Well in the new screenshots, the Rock Pikmin still have PURPLE flowers.

Those are buds. For all we know the purple buds mature into orange flowers.

That's very unlikely.

I agree.
Purple buds turning into Orange flowers? Please, give me a break.
