Pikmin 3 supports local multiplayer gameplay, such as the Challenge mode, which supports 2 players and is a cooperative mode. In Challenge, players team up in order to collect as much fruit in a given time period. Both players can use the Wiimote and Nunchucks to play — the GamePad isn’t required (but can be used).
Check out two gameplay videos that show how the mode works: the first video shows the co-op game mode, while the second video shows the new Bingo Battle mode, where players compete with each other.
Pikmin 3 has been very successful in Japan — Wii U sales doubled after Pikmin 3 was released. Nintendo currently has a Wii U eShop deal where players who purchase Pikmin 3 get 30% off on The Wonderful 101.
