Pikmin 3 is a game about nature, just as it always has been. But on Wii U it’s so believable it often feels like you’re sitting in a real garden, playing with ants and beetles in dappled sunlight. Despite the macabre undertones of the cruelty of nature, the game is charming, funny, and utterly captivating. It is without doubt yet another Miyamoto masterpiece, and one that the Wii U desperately needs.

Miyamoto has said that his vision has finally been realised in Pikmin 3, and there’s much that can be found to support that claim. As the Wii U firmly sets its sights on a resurgence, Pikmin 3 delivers an action-strategy experience like no other. And at a time where many complain that Nintendo isn’t investing in new IP, it serves as a reminder to the fresh breeze of creativity that can be achieved when they do.

Pikmin 3 is a delight. There’s nothing else like its gentle combination of exploration, strategy and discovery, and it made me feel both empathy and responsibility for virtual creatures that most games would treat as disposable fodder. It transported me like few other games can, giving the feeling of being a stranger in a strange (but oddly familiar) world. It's over too soon, but it leaves a lasting impression.
