Is that a screenshot in-game? MAN I'M IMPRESSED! LOOK AT DEM GRAPHICS!



Does this mean there is online multiplayer for this game? Or is your highest score in challenge mode just going to be put online?

Online leaderboards means probably just high score leaderboards.

In that case they should do this for Super Mario 3D World if it can. Or have ghost data you can dl to race or out perform like Mario Kart.

That's what I'm wondering as well.  Looks fucking phenomenal.  Even though there is not too much going on in the scene and if that's really in game then this will really show the power of wii u. I have my doubts, but from the gameplay vids it still looks amazing.

you serious? that's 3D pikmin with real flowers and stuff, not in-game




No more purple Pikmin in the story mode?

I suppose it's better. As strong as they were, they removed that fear factor whenever you found a big enemy.

damn I don't like that they removed the white and purple pikmin from the main game :(

Nice that they're supporting all available controllers. More Wii U titles should follow this example.
