Aw, those Pikmin – they’re so cute. And so helpful! Whatever you need done, be it swimming across treacherous waters, building heavy wooden bridges, or carrying life-threatening bombs, those little Pikmin just love helping you out. In NEW PLAY CONTROL! Pikmin for Wii, you take on the role of Captain Olimar who has crash-landed on a mysterious planet, watched his spaceship explode into the ether and now needs to find some Pikmin pals pronto in order to get back into orbit.

Nintendo has remade this GameCube real time strategy classic for Wii as part of the NEW PLAY CONTROL! series. Now every Wii owner has the opportunity to take on the surreal world of Pikmin and track down the pieces of Olimar’s spaceship by overcoming the obstacles, puzzles and foes that lie in wait. There are three types of Pikmin you can guide through the lush landscape: the fiery, aggressive Red Pikmin, the amphibious Blue Pikmin and the bomb-specialist Yellow Pikmin. They don’t just appear out of thin air to obey your every whim though. They live in special little Onion capsules and start off life as an Onion seed, which you must nurture through three stages of development. And make sure you get them all home safely by dark – hostile enemies lie around every corner, so it really pays to know your Onions.

The all-new Wii version of Pikmin adds several features to the game, including the ability to replay any day, and an enhanced control system, using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. You only have 30 in-game days to complete your mission and get the Dolphin spaceship up and running. Can you manage it? You’ll need your wits about you as you rediscover the magic of Pikmin in NEW PLAY CONTROL! Pikmin on Wii.

* Collect up to 29 spaceship parts so that Captain Olimar can continue his journey

* Multiple endings to enjoy, dependent on level of success

* Use Wii Remote and Nunchuk for intuitive gameplay

* Part of the exciting NEW PLAY CONTROL! series on Wii
