Pikmin 3 to feature Alph, Brittany, and Captain Charlie

It'll also launch with lots of control options

Nintendo let loose a ton of new info on Pikmin 3 today, like the fact that the new cast consists of characters named Alph, Brittany, and Captain Charlie. These adorable creatures have crash landed on a planet while in search of new food sources for their home. Their overarching goal is to grab food and bring it back into their ship to convert into fuel.

The GamePad will act as a map, and can also control your Pikmin. You can also use the Wii U Pro Controller and Wii-motes to control the action (including the ability to use your GamePad as the TV while you use a remote), which makes me very happy to know that there are options.

Pikmin 3 is launching on August 4th in North America and July 26th in Europe, and somewhere, Chad Concelmo is freaking out.
