A Nintendo representative walks us through the two-player versus mode "Bingo Battle" in Pikmin 3, where you must command your troops to mine resources to match pieces on a bingo board. Resources are limited, so you can block your opponent by mining pieces they need most. This was one of our most anticipated games of E3, and one of the stronger titles in this winter's lukewarm Wii U lineup. For another look check out Miyamoto playing it.
Pretty fun stuff, and while not terribly difficult to explain this is certainly not Candy Crush Saga. You're going to need to find someone who smells Mid-Core or smarter if your trash-talking bingo session is going to be more fun than chilling with grandma at the parlor.
