A new video for Pikmin 3 introduces five of the Pikmin variants featured in the game, and provides a brief overview of their unique traits.
At the core of Pikmin 3‘s real-time strategy gameplay are Blue Pikmin (whose amphibious nature allows them to survive in land or water), Red Pikmin (who are resistant to fire and more ferocious in battle), Yellow Pikmin (who are resistant to electricity and can be thrown higher than other Pikmin), Rock Pikmin (who are heavier and can be used to break through crystal walls), and finally Winged Pikmin (they fly—shock and awe—and can carry things over water and lift obstructions).
According to creator Shigeru Miyamoto, the purple and white Pikmin types from Pikmin 2 are hidden somewhere in Pikmin 3.
Pikmin 3 launches August 4 in North America, next week in Japan, and July 26 in Europe.
