“With Pikmin 3, you’ll have the ability to have three different captains or leaders of Pikmin groups and you can switch between them. So it sort of allows you to approach the game from a much more strategic position. The volume of work that you can get done within the timeframe has increased dramatically. And so that in and of itself really enhances the depth of strategy that’s available to you in that game.”

Maybe there will be 4 captains for multiplayer? I don't know. Anyway, I wonder what he meant by "time frame." game time limit like Pikmin 1 or just the individual day clock? I'm sure he's referencing the latter but it could be both.

Were the four captains in concept art ever shown all together in gameplay? Because if all we had were those drawings, then it's not surprising one got cut.

Nope. Only that one drawing was shown. :P

"Captain 4" is probably scrapped. At least for single player mode. It's a shame because I like his design. Oh, well. There's still multiplayer. XD Let's see how it goes!

Pikmin 1 = 1 captain
Pikmin 2 = 2 captains
Pikmin 3 = 3 captains

Keeping the number of captains in line with the game number makes sense.

Why would they drop the fourth guy though? This isn't Rampage.

But if it really is three men, then brilliant, I see what they did there. And they look fine anyway.



Maybe later in the story, some characters will get swapped out for others, like the President replaced Louie in the second half of Pikmin 2.

Maybe the game will still offer four-player multiplayer, however only have three-player campaign co-op. The fourth player would be Luigi's light blue color scheme from Super Smash Bros Brawl.

What if one of them were only half a man? (Insert obvious reference here)
