Just thought this title needed an official thread.
Yesterday, while browsing the interwebs at work, I found a hands-on of the game that mentioned something that I had not heard of anywhere else. Unfortunately, I don't remember where it was, but here's the gist...
Pikmin 3 now has an evade move! From Nintendojo "Handy, then, that our new lead character has a nifty dodge ability that sees both him and his band of Pikmin roll to the side in perfect unison whenever dangerís about to rear its ugly head. It took a while to master, especially since there seems to be a small amount of recovery time before you can initiate another one, but it brought a welcome sense of drama to the fights, as well as a greater feeling of control over your large army."
Let's give this launch window game some love! ERRR.....Releases August 4th!
Well, I tried to post the trailer. Thanks Renjaku!
Now lets take a look at Gamexplain of the newest video
Let us not forget you can STILL FINISH THE GAME WITHOUT OUT ALL OF THE PIECES. You just won't see everything the game offers (most likely just the final landing area/boss) and you'll get one of the 2 lesser endings. You don't get stuck in gaming limbo or a Game Over screen, you complete day 30 and either the Dolphin takes off or it doesn't.
I loved the time limit but others hated it. I think the best thing for Nintendo to do is to have it as an option.
But the time limit was fantastic. I have only beat the 1st one once but I have been meaning to go back and improve my time. My main problem is the second areas boss. I always lost tons of Pikmin on that thing.
They need to make it so that if you complete within a certain number of days (x) you'll get the 100% end. If you complete within y number of days, you'll get the normal ending. And if you can't complete it by z days, your Pikmin will turn on you kinda like Magwais at midnight.
