There are a lot of franchises made by Nintendo that don't get a lot of the spotlight. F-Zero, Kid Icarus, Metroid, and one of the more recent franchises: Pikmin (though not as bad as some of the above). Three games have been made for the series... and at time of writing I have not played any of them. I'm curious about the series and I intend to play the newest one, Pikmin 3. Recently however, three short films have been posted to the WiiU and 3DS eshops. So, for the last post before the start of the marathon, time to take a look at the life of the Pikmin.
The three shorts are The Night Juicer, Treasure in a Bottle and Occupational Hazards, each one longer then the last one. With the plots as follows
- The Night Juicer: Captain Olimar is brewing a favorite juice of his and three Pikmin look at the remains.
- Treasure in a bottle: A Red Pikmin is trapped in a glass bottle as a result of trying to retrieve a glass marble that was used to seal the bottle. The rest of the short is trying to get this Pikmin out of the bottle.
- Occupational Hazard: Captain Olimar, with his Pikmin, are trying to collect parts off a run down excavator, but as a result, disturb two Pikmin predators.
