After waiting ten years, Pikmin is back. The title of the main figure of the authorship of Nintendo, Shigeru Miyamoto, is a strategy game in real time, where players control an explorer on an alien planet which in turn can control tiny creatures called Pikmin. This means that in reality will be able to control the Pikmin. In Pikmin 3 the player controls three characters, Alph, Britanny and Charlie, who were sent to space to find resources to take back to their planet.
Everything seemed to be going well until, well, start to go wrong. On the planet Pop-404 crashes into the ship and each goes to his side. Pop-404 is the planet Earth even now, despite the race being extinct, something that was confirmed by Shigeru Miyamoto himself in an interview. As the three characters are separated in the crash will begin by controlling only Alph, but the other characters are being introduced gradually. Although the game unfold on earth will not recognize anything. There are no major cities or landmarks recreated recognizable simply because the playable characters are lowercase and Pikmin are even smaller.
