Pikmin 3 is scant days from release, so if you're not familiar with the premise, it's probably high time you checked out the latest trailer. It's effectively Pikmin 101: an introduction to how each Pikmin type works, how to use them effectively and how your burgeoning mob of colourful critters can become an effective army in your mission to find fruit and send it into space. It's Pikmin. It doesn't have to make sense.
Pikmin 3 launches this Friday in the UK, exclusively on Wii U.
