Nintendo's creative genius explains how you'll use the GamePad

Shigeru Miyamoto believes that the best thing about Pikmin 3 is the beautiful HD visuals. Aside from the GamePad map, Pikmin 3 doesn't boast many features that make use of Nintendo's new controller but, according to Miyamoto, this isn't a game that demands asymmetric gaming.

Got this on Preorder.

Why does it need Motion Plus? To point? The Wii could do that from day 1!

This is amazing news. It means they aren't going to tack on awkward controls just because they can. If they decided to do the two DS Zelda games without touch screen controls, I might have enjoyed them a lot more.

HOWEVER, I think the biggest draw should not be the HD but new gameplay elements. Seeing every pikmin's individual movement will be nice, but if it plays exactly the same as one of the previous games, then whats the point?

To be fair, it's not a case of it just pointing. It's a similar mechanic to throwing bombs (or Remlits) in Skyward Sword, using the MotionPlus for more accurate tilt recognition to mirror the right trajectory.

It's the same game I've played twice before but with HD graphics!

Come on Nintendo bring some thing new out to show off the Wii U.
