In another new video from Nintendo, we learn more about the Pikmin types, as well as some gameplay basics that will help players become more efficient in the game. Pikmin 3 was released for North America on August 4th for Wii U.

Yellow Pikmin can be thrown higher than other Pikmin. However, their true talents lie in their ability to start electrical currents and fight against enemies that use electricity. The video also shows you how to multitask between separate squads, which allows you to perform different tasks in different areas simultaneously. The video has been posted below, so check it out for a dose of cuteness. You can also read my Pikmin 3 review here.
