Cheap for a Nintendo first party game.

Release date: 26/07/13

Description:

Pikmin 3 is a fully reimagined, mass-action strategy title from the critically acclaimed Pikmin series. Players will discover a beautiful world filled with strange creatures and take command of a swarm of ant-like Pikmin trying to survive. The world is densely packed with treasures and enemies, which makes the game much more action focused and fills it with layers of potential strategies and paths, adding greater replayability to challenge modes.

Players can play using Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk-based controls or the Wii U GamePad controller. With new intuitive controls that make it possible to aim at objects directly, players can command their tiny, yet powerful, squads in different ways.

The GamePad acts as an overhead map and radar to track Pikmin movements in real time. Players can slide a finger across the touch screen to quickly switch between areas, giving greater flexibility in commanding multiple groups of Pikmin.

The greater processing and HD capabilities of the Wii U console are put to extensive use, resulting in a more intricately designed world, enhanced ant-like movement of the Pikmin and precisely detailed overhead views for enabling easier strategic use of the Pikmin.

After completing a stage, the replay feature allows players the option to review their results using the GamePad and TV. Fast-forward, rewind or pause while assessing the previous mission to decide on other paths.
In addition to the five original types of Pikmin encountered in previous games, the new Rock Pikmin bring powerful new abilities and are able to crack hard outer shells of enemies and break through solid barriers.
Mission Mode challenges players to earn the most treasure in a given time.

Does anyone know when Shopto take cash ?



Usually on the day it's out or the day before shipping, which is usually the tuesday of the week it's out.
I'm fed up of ShopTo everytime I preorder at a cheap price they cancel the order claiming "technical difficulties" then ask me to reorder at release price stay clear.

I've pre ordered from shopto twice and it's been perfectly fine for me.
I'm especially happy how they don't take any money till it's released and they dispatch it first class for free.

Each to their own but I wasn't happy paying full price when there was so many good preorder prices elsewhere obviously not as cheap but cheaper than full price!
Ahhh, the Wii U launch window... And the main reason (along with W101) I went for the Wii U at launch!

I can't wait for this, and this is a great price for a first party Wii U game especially. The first two, especially Pikmin 2, are among my all time faves.

And I can't say I've ever had an order cancelled by shopto either (out of maybe a dozen or more orders), it's not like this price is totally out of the realms of possibility, and I think it was a similar price at Zavvi/The Hut at one point I think.

Cheers OP!

After the Xbox One event the Wii U looks amazing lol. Doesn't charge you extra to play the games you bought online, doesn't charge extra for used games, multiple people can have different online accounts and not pay any extra and the Wii U doesn't throw a ton of advertising in your face that you don't want. It's just a game console for um games. Nintendo will do fine this gen imho..

Xbone looks awful in comparison..
