Pikmin 3 To Have Three Playable Captains, According To Miyamoto

Apparently we’ll have one less captain to play as in the Wii U’s upcoming Pikmin 3, according to Shigeru Miyamoto himself. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Miyamoto talked a bit about strategy in Pikmin 3 and the degree of control gamers will have over their colorful walking sprouts. Contrary to what was previously stated though, Miyamoto now says the game will only have three playable captains rather than four...
"With Pikmin 3, you’ll have the ability to have three different captains or leaders of Pikmin groups and you can switch between them. So it sort of allows you to approach the game from a much more strategic position. The volume of work that you can get done within the timeframe has increased dramatically. And so that in and of itself really enhances the depth of strategy that’s available to you in that game."
We can only guess Nintendo decided to take things down a notch with four captains making things a little too...complicated? Regardless of the actual reason, we can only hope it’s for the best! Pikmin 3 currently is set to release in Q2 of 2013 exclusively for the Wii U.
Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
In some sort of cosmic twist, I have seen the future. No, I didn’t find out where/when/why I’ll die, nor did I even find out what I’ll have for breakfast tomorrow (I hope it’s pancakes). But I assure you, I have seen the future.
The future of video games that is. I recently got to test out Morpheus - uh, I mean PlayStation VR - Sony’s answer to the ever-growing interest in virtual reality. Although the headset is currently far from completion, it’s also far from shotty.
Whether it’s a rainy day, a sickness, or some other reason not to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer air, video games are the perfect way to spend your time - that is, if you can find a game to play. In terms of releases, summer generally isn’t the most fruitful of seasons, and this year is no different. So what games could/should you be sinking your teeth into during the dog days?
Since its reveal at E3 2009, The Last Guardian has not resurfaced other than in rumours and in statements regarding said rumours. Sony admits to major studio problems during the game’s development, but constantly reassures those anticipating the game that it is still not, and will not, be canceled. So is this the year that we finally see the resurrection of The Last Guardian? In my opinion, the answer is a big fat NO.
