Nine years. That's how long it has been since a new Pikmin game has graced a Nintendo system. With the exception of two motion control-enhanced re-releases which proved how suited the franchise was to the Wii, a new entry in the series was conspicuously absent from the system's line-up. Nevertheless, Pikmin 3 is finally here — for Wii U no less — and hungry fans will be happy to know that this latest instalment has been well worth the wait. Taking advantage of all the unique features the Wii U has to offer and featuring some stunning visuals, Pikmin 3 is above all an enthralling and highly entertaining experience that all Wii U owners should try.
