Video: Pikmin 3 US TV commercial

Nintendo has rolled out the US television commercial for Pikmin 3. The ad goes in a different direction as opposed to the Wii U’s first campaigns for its early titles in which we are shown a young child commanding a small Pikmin army. Pikmin 3 is slated for release in North America on the Wii U on August 4th.

    Any idea where these commercials are going to air? Nick or something like that?

    Interesting commercial though. Seems like they’re trying to lure young male gamers. An audience they don’t have right now obviously.

    I have never played a Pikmin game before. I didn’t have a Gamecube and didn’t buy the Wiimade ones. I will be buying this one though. I would just like some thoughts from some veteran Pikmin fans what to expect for a first timer to the series. Thanks in advance infendo readers.

    As a fan of the first two games (playing the first on the GameCube and second on the Wii edition) Pikmin is a game quite unlike any other. Both games ease the player into the world of pikmin very well and don’t assume you have played it or anything similar so I don’t think new players have anything to worry about jumping straight into the 3rd.

    You basic build an army or different types, the more you have the easier to fight enemies or destroy obstacles, there’s also lots of environmental puzzles using the different types.

    The games have a good mix of combat, puzzles and time management – having to focus on doing one or a few tasks each day before nightfall.

    Basically I would recommend the Pikmin franchise to anyone who is open to trying new types of gameplay, it’s drench with the Nintendo charm and can be played in many play styles, after all this time I’m very excited to get to play a Nintendo franchise which is still fresh.
