The New Pikmin 3 Update Version 2.0.0 Adds Smooth Stylus Support

Nintendo has released a new update for Pikmin 3. The version 2.0.0 update adds stylus support and allows players to seamlessly switch between controls. (Pikmin 3, Wii U)

After checking out the new functionality, I think it's nice. Like with the Wii U Gamepad, it will be hard to get used to this new scheme. Also, there's no doubt that Nintendo is starting to try to prove the value of the Gamepad.

Just in time for me to Download the game tomorrow, after I get Mario Kart 8.

It's pretty good. I'm thinking of going Zelda myself, maybe Wiiu party. I haven't decided

I am also indecisive between Wind Waker and Pikmin 3 but I tend to Pikmin because I can play WW anytime on my cube... just not in HD. But Pikmin is a totally new and really good looking game. Also I would like to get Monster Hunter 3 but I am not sure if it is a lot of fun to play that game alone (none of my friends own a wii u) -_-

Such a tough decision...

Monster Hunter is very fun. You don't have to play solo because they have online multiplayer.

Before you play, I highly recommend watching the Pro Jared Monster Hunter for beginners video series. It's hilarious and highly informative. To get a good start, use whatever weapon you want. Really, all of the choices are great, so choose based on what weapon will be the most fun for you. I spent a good 2 hours just on weapon selection

I'd get Zelda too but I got it with the WWHD bundle, already have NSMBU & not really interested in half the games within Nintendo Land + always wanted to play a Pikmin game.

For me the decision is easy, but I'm glad they gave everyone 4 options.

So I'm getting the new Mario Kart bundle and as you may or may not know, you get a free game when you register Mario Kart. I'm trying to decide whether to get Pikmin 3 or Wind Waker HD. Any suggestions, guys?

Pikmin 3 is a new game and not a remake, so I'd lean more towards Pikmin! Plus there's a new Zelda game coming, and I don't think there'll be another Pikmin game for a while.

Pikmin 3 also has really fun co-op modes if that interests you.

However, it's up to you! If you've never played Wind Waker before...well, you're missing out!

haha, I'd eventually get both.

Pikmin 3 needs a lot of support, the future of the series it's getting darker,Zelda on the other hand it's one of Nintendo's pillars, so it barely needs support by the fanbase. Pikmin doesn't have that and I'm feeling it will run the same luck of other Nintendo's franchises like Star Fox and F-Zero. But this update it's a step forward and also a break because it shows that Nintendo is still interested in providing content to the game even months later after its initial release.

Pikmin 3 it's a great game and it's my favorite game of the system, it's a pretty RTS very addictive but it's pretty short.

However, the decision is up to you, choose the game that better fits you.

I say get both.But get Pikmin 3 this way because it's a $60 game were as LOZ WW is only $50.That said if you need something that will take along time to beat and haven't played it on GC go with now Zelda now for sure.Metallox has it right with "choose the game that better fit's you" And P3 is way shorter then WW.

Support new games not ports
GamingSinceThe80s  +   325d ago
Just read below that Nintendo reduced all these games to $40.So price is not the issue here after all.So I say get Zelda.

W1o1 is like 25 bucks on eBay
Benjaminkno  +   325d ago
... please tell me you played Wind Waker..

It's a favorite of many fans. There are a few things I didn't like about it, but it's an all around phenomenal game.

Pikmin is always fantastic imo.
Totoro17  +   325d ago
I absolutely have played Wind Waker! It's one of my all-time favorite games, actually. That being said, I've yet to play Pikmin 3, though, and as much as I'd love to see WW done in HD, I'm a tad more interested in Pikmin, especially now that they've done an update to incorporate the game pad and make it a really terrific gaming experience.
GamingSinceThe80s  +   325d ago
Wow $25 is a steal.I payed $60 when it came out.But mine came with the Ganon statue.I was going to skip it because I still have the GC one.But the the sales clerk at my GS it a huge Zelda fan also,so he talked me into it.Glad I reserved it when I did because they stopped taking them the next day and once I couldn't get one then that when I would have had to have it. That's exactly what happened with the Bravely Default's box set.I have calmed down now but for the first few week's I was pretty upset at my self.I must be crazy.lol

Ooh, tough choice there... if you haven't already played the original Wind Waker, I'd say get Pikmin 3.
Benjaminkno  +   325d ago
Great game
Loadedklip  +   325d ago
I have Pikmin 3 (FANTASTIC and beautiful game with tons of stuff to do) ... so the choice for me is either New Super Mario Bros U or Zelda Wind Waker HD.

I love Windwaker on GCN ... but I still own a Wii and I still own my GCN Windwaker.

I think I will go with New Super Mario Bros U.

I have beaten this game at my brothers house with 3 friends but I never played it solo which is probably a very different experience single player than it is in the chaotic (but fun) multiplayer.

Pikmin 3 all the way if you don't have it yet. Pikmin is one of my favorite Nintendo franchises of all time, but I am also a huge real time strategy fan, so it really hits home for me. Collecting resources and battle, nothing is better in gaming.
