During this morning's Nintendo Direct, Iwata explained how Pikmin 3 would feature an in-game camera that allowed you to take photos from the Pikmins' point of view and share them on Miiverse. Meanwhile, some sample photos were shared, looking positively Tastykakes.
Something noted by the NeoGAF community is, though Pikmin 3 uses nice textures, viewing any surface at an angle yields a blurry mess. This is because the game lacks anisotropic filtering, a process that would improve the quality of textures that aren't viewed straight-on. It's not the end of the world, but the nitpickers are bound to jump on that shortcoming. Better to call it out here so we can all move on to better, more important things.
