The latest edition of Japanese gaming publication Famitsu has the first review of the long-awaited Pikmin 3 for Wii U. The magazine awarded the Wii U exclusive a more than respectable 37/40. The four reviewers awarded the game three 9′s and one perfect 10. Pikmin 3 launches in Europe on July 26th and in North America on August 4th.

    A lot of people don’t seem fully interested in this game , but it’s up their with Smash and X for me , definitely.

  4. Does anyone know of a Japanese review site similar to Metacritic? I’d like to watch for the reviews of Pikmin 3 in the next few days if possible.

    • As Anubis pointed out above, a 37/40 is equal to 92.5%. If that was the average review score for Pikmin 3 when all is said and done, it would blow away any other games currently on Wii U.

      • And they rated The Last of Us 38/40. The Last of Us did end up getting about 95% average rating; even if it was actually a terrible gameplay experience.

        Put simply, Famitsu are fairly accurate with their reviews.

    • If it’s anything like the first 2 you’ll be glad you bought it. It’s one of those series that I think a lot of people don’t know about yet, but is good enough that most people will in a few years.

  8. I’m just SO afraid to buy a Wii U right now. Because I just KNOW that right when I go and buy one, some new colors will suddenly come out. And I’ll want to SCREAM!

      • WHEN Pikmin 4 comes out! WHEN!

        Sons of Pikmin, of Nintendo, my brothers,
        I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me.
        A day may come when the courage of Pikmin fails,
        when we forsake our friends
        and break all bonds of fellowship,
        but it is not this day.
        An hour of bulborbs and shattered helmets,
        when the age of Pikmin comes crashing down,
        but it is not this day!
        This day we fight!
        By all that you hold dear on this good PNF-404,
        I bid you stand, Men of Hocotate!

        • never played pikmin but i have had my eyes on it lately. i used to think it looked pathetic until i noticed that its one of the ips nintendo doesnt milk and also is one of the newest ips by them. so whats better pikmin on gamecube or the wii???? like pikmin one is cheap on gamecube but cost way more on wii but the second one is really expensive on gamecube but cheap on the wii. what ones are better????

          • imo the wii ones are better, because of the improved targeting, but any ways, you’re right the community here is horrible. I’d say it’s 10X worse than N4G, 100X worse than gonintendo, and 1000X worse than nintendoeverything and all of these sites report news 10000X faster than MNN,

            • I never liked playing with the Wiimote. It felt like I had a tougher time controlling the Pikmin. Or maybe I just think the GameCube controller is just the best.

                • im more of a fan that wishes nintendo to be back how they were, now they arnt what they could be. its pathetic because if anybody else was in nintendos position say sony, they would have died a long time ago. nintendo CAN do a lot better than what they have become and i hope they can fix it. like the other day i was going to play dk64, been like 3 years, but it died……… nnoooooooo stupid battery!!!!!

          • I have Pikmin for the GC but Pikmin 2 for the Wii. I like the motion controls, but then again, sometimes they will fuck you in the butt. I guess it’s personal preference. You should get this, though.
