Nintendo bred a new flower to market Pikmin on GameCube!?

Latest Did You Know Gaming? blows my mind

The common refrain these days is that Nintendo doesn't know how to market the Wii U. But I know the creativity is still there, waiting to be tapped. Case in point...

The latest episode of Did You Know Gaming? arrives just in time to celebrate today's release of Pikmin 3. Narrated by JonTron (Jon's back! Yay!), this Pikmin-themed special runs through some of the more familiar nuggets of Pikmin lore, such as how it was based upon the Super Mario 128 Spaceworld demo.

One bit of trivia that I was totally unaware of was that Nintendo bred a new flower called "Bacoba Cabana" that resembled the flower on the yellow Pikmin's head and sold it to the public five months after the launch of the original Pikmin. When you are literally creating life just to promote a videogame, you've officially entered the realm megalomania. Stop playing God, Nintendo!
