  Action-Packed DLC for Pikmin 3

Business Wire

REDMOND, Wash. -- November 6, 2013

Fantastic new challenges in the world of Pikmin 3 are only a download away.
Starting today, new challenges in the “Battle Enemies!” mission type in Pikmin
3 can be purchased as downloadable content in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U for
only $1.99. One stage is free, and is available via an automatic software
update.

The pack of four stages is based on locations from the game’s Story Mode and
is crawling with tons of hostile creatures. Like all the other stages in
Mission Mode, these new challenges can be played solo or cooperatively with a
friend. High scores earned in this mode will be displayed on a global rankings
leaderboard, encouraging friendly competition with other players all around
the world.

To purchase the new downloadable content, Wii U users with broadband Internet
access need to select “downloadable content” from the Pikmin 3 page in the
Nintendo eShop and follow the instructions to confirm their purchase. Once
purchased and downloaded, players can access the new stages from the Mission
Mode menu in Pikmin 3 after the game has been restarted.

Pikmin 3 is the latest installment in the fan-favorite Pikmin series. Designed
by Shigeru Miyamoto, the game finds three space explorers leading an army of
adorable Pikmin on a quest to find supplies for their home planet. The new
stages in “Battle Enemies!” mark the second set of downloadable content in
Pikmin 3. Additional downloadable content for Mission Mode launched earlier
this year in the Nintendo eShop.
