In case you missed it, Pikmin 3 just launched yesterday for Wii U. Nintendo doesn’t want you to forget either and has kindly released a new trailer that introduces us to the three intrepid explorers, as well as the strong and fire-proof Red Pikmin.

The explorers, Captain Charlie, Brittany and Alph, must cooperate with the adorable Pikmin in order to find fruits to  bring back to their food deprived planet Koppai. There are several types of Pikmin they must learn to use and the Red Pikmin variety are the most common, the strongest and the best option to fight against enemies that use fire attacks.

There’s also a handy trailer that gives you a nice introduction to the world of Pikmin 3 here. You can also read my review of the game here.
