Pikmin 3 recruits new screens, game details and a release date

Nintendo unveiled a little bit more about Pikmin 3 during the Nintendo Direct conference earlier today. The game will feature a trio of new playable characters and will launch on August 4th.

They also sent over a huge flood of screenshots of the game as you can see below.

Pikmin 3 screens:

New playable characters Alph, Brittany and Charlie recruit the Pikmin creatures to help them gather fruit so that they can return with the seeds to save their home, Planet Koppai. Players can divide activities among the different characters, and explore separate areas in the same map with different groups of Pikmin. Using the GamePad (known as the KopPad in the game), players can view the overall map and grasp what each character and Pikmin are up to. Players also can choose their preferred control option: GamePad in conjunction with the TV, Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk combo or GamePad only in off-TV mode. Players can also use the Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk with the GamePad as a second-screen monitor. Pikmin 3 launches Aug. 4.
