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 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.
