During this morning’s Nintendo Direct—dedicated entirely to Pikmin 3—creator Shigeru Miyamoto and comedian Hitoshi Matsumoto demoed roughly 15 minutes of Pikmin 3 gameplay.
Fair warning: the video (embedded below) is in Japanese, and it ain’t got no subtitles. So the specifics of the duo’s hands-on time with Pikmin 3 will be lost to most, I imagine (myself included—never got around to learnin’ it after an old RPGFan coworker informed me he spent 8 years of undergraduate and graduate school mastering the language). There is, however, plenty of new gameplay footage for your viewing pleasure.
Supposin’, of course, that you’re into Pikmin.
Pikmin 3 launches in North America August 4. Japan and Europe get their hands on the Wii U real-time strategy game a tad earlier, however: July 13 and July 26 respectively.
