Pikmin 3 Will Support GamePad-Only Play

Posted on February 5, 2013 AT 11:22am

During Nintendo’s latest financial briefing, Shigeru Miyamoto touched upon Pikmin 3 and specifically mention the inclusion of GamePad-only play.

“You can play this game only with Wii U GamePad,” said Miyamoto. “If it is hard to imagine what it will be like, maybe you can recall the visuals of the original Pikmin for Nintendo GameCube and imagine how you can play it with the smaller but more detailed screen in your hands. The two control sticks of Wii U GamePad will let you play this game more comfortably and, with a TV screen, the gyro sensor inside Wii Remote Plus will further help your gameplay.”

Pikmin 3 is expected to debut on Wii U sometime this spring.
