Meet the Cute Creatures of Pikmin 3

Meet the Cute Creatures of Pikmin 3

Nintendo has uploaded a video that introduces each of the five different Pikmin types you can expect to meet and greet throughout Pikmin 3.

In addition to their intros, the video also shows off some gameplay action for each creature. Other confirmed Pikmin, Purple and White, will make their return as well; however, it is currently unknown if these two colors will be available during Story Mode.

  • Blue Pikmin – They’re amphibious and can survive in water or on land.
  • Red Pikmin – They’re resistant to fire and are much fiercer in battle than other Pikmin types.
  • Yellow Pikmin – They’re resistant to electricity and can be thrown higher than any other type of Pikmin.
  • Rock Pikmin – They’re much heavier than other Pikmin types and can be used to smash through Crystal Walls.
  • Winged Pikmin – They’re small and can fly, enabling them to carry things over water and lift obstructions.

  1. I think this video is cute. I hope this helps to draw in those who are unfamiliar with the series. I do hope for an additional later video that explains the difference between the Purple and White Pikmin even if they are only reserved for mission/battle modes.
