The Return of an Army

Pikmin 3 is a fully reimagined, mass-action strategy title from the
critically acclaimed Pikmin series. Players will discover a beautiful
world filled with strange creatures and take command of a swarm of
ant-like Pikmin trying to survive. The world is densely packed with

greater replayability to challenge modes.

their results using the GamePad and TV. Fast-forward, rewind or pause while
assessing the previous mission to decide on other paths.
• In addition to the five original types of Pikmin encountered in previous games,
the new Rock Pikmin bring powerful new abilities and are able to crack hard
outer shells of enemies and break through solid barriers.
• Mission Mode challenges players to earn the most treasure in a given time.
