Pikmin 3 returns with more of those colorful little alien monsters in this gameplay demo from Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto's E3 2012 press conference. Sadly, Olimar has been inconsicuously missing from videos of this next installment of Pikmin, but there are four new characters to play, including a pink-haired girl, a bald general, a green-haired boy, and a tall, green-haired man.
Pikmin 3 also introduces two new Pikmin, including pink Pikmin, and stone Pikmin, which can be hurled at walls or enemies. In this demo, stone Pikmin are thrown at an ice insectoid to break its outer shell.
Pikmin can also grab objects, like fruit, adding another level of strategy in Pikmin 3. The captains can also throw other captains, and may be able to play together in the main story mode.
