Players control a spaceman named Captain Olimar who has crash-landed on an unusual planet. The goal of the game is to help Olimar collect his vessel’s lost parts, which have been scattered all over the planet. Luckily for Captain Olimar, the planet is inhabited by strange little creatures, called Pikmin. Pikmin are plant-like life forms that come in three different colours red, yellow and blue. Each type of Pikmin has unique strengths, which Olimar must use to his advantage. Red Pikmin can withstand fire, blue Pikmin can survive in water, while yellow Pikmin can destroy obstacles by using bomb-rocks. Players can control the Pikmin sprouts individually, in groups, or in one large Pikmin posse of 100 creatures. Pikmin on Wii will allow users to utilise all new controls when playing this GameCube favourite, and offering a more complete experience on the Wii. The New Play Controls have made this version of Pikmin more accessible and tighter, with the most notable difference being that Captain Olimar is now controlled with the Nunchuk’s Analogue Stick while the cursor is moved with the Wii Remote’s pointer.

The player’s goal is to use the Pikmin to locate the 30 different parts of the Dolphin and carry them back to the spaceship to repair it so that Olimar can return home. The catch is that this task must be accomplished within 30 in-game days.
