Pikmin 3 Gets A Rebirth With Short Films And Wii U eShop Demo!

Pikmin 3 is easily one of more unique titles to grace Nintendo's first HD console but unfortunately never got the recognition it deserved due to the the unwarranted media bashing of the Wii U during 2013 and a lot of 2014. Fortunately Nintendo is giving the game a second chance now that everyone is crawling back to the Wii U due to it having the best exclusive titles of the eighth generation consoles (Wii U, PS4, XBOne). One way they are doing this is by offering a full playable demo of Pikmin 3 on the eShop. What makes this demo special is that any of your progress in the demo will be saved and carried over to the full retail version of the game should you decide to add this gem to your collection. I highly recommend giving this game a try if you have a Wii U or are getting one this fall.

Nintendo is also releasing a series of adorable Pikmin short films on the 3DS & Wii U eShop. The films were crafted and directed by series creator (and legendary game designer) Shigeru Miyamoto. These three short films titled The Night Juicer, Treasure in a Bottle and Occupational Hazards further expand on the cute little Pikmin and their lives outside of the game world. Your viewing preference will be based on the console of choice with Pikmin Short Movies 3D for 3DS and Pikmin Short Movies HD for Wii U priced at $4.99 each. Your film purchase will also include the animated storyboards Mr. Miyamoto used to plan the film which were created using Nintendo's own Flipnote Studio software from the Nintendo DSi. Enjoy!
