Nintendo decided to open its E3 2012 press conference with a bang by showing the long-anticipated game Pikman 3, which will hit the Wii U during its launch window.
Controllable from both the Game Pad and the MotionPlus, Pikman 3 will continue the franchise with four new heroes. Each of these characters can be controlled individually, or simultaniously through the recently revealed Game Pad. All the classic Pikmin colors will be returning, but a Rock Pikmain that can be used to break walls and objects was introduced on the stage.
A brand new challenge mode will also be available in the final product, adding replayability and rewards for faster times to different levels in the game.
