Pikmin 3 Nintendo Direct: watch it live here
Franchise creator Shigeru Miyamoto and comedian Hitoshi Matsumoto played Pikmin together in a special Nintendo Direct broadcast.
The video showed a captain crash landing on the Pikmin planet, only to be attacked by a monster inside a dark cave. Control then switched to a second captain who then enlisted the help of red Pikmin to help him build bridges over gaps, and push heavy boxes, all using the original Wiimote and nunchuck controller.
