Considering how many people are going mad over the recent release of Screenshots for Mario Kart I've decided to do a post on other big E3 game. So here we go, info gained via Nintendo's official website:

The company he works for is going bankrupt, so to save it, Olimar must salvage the treasure buried all over the planet. His company's debt is a whopping 10,000 pokos- luckily, Olimar brought an assistant, so if the two of them can delegate their work well, they should be able to erase that debt in no time! Of course, they'll need the help of the Pikmin to do that-these two can't do anything by themselves. Alternate controlling the main characters-Olimar and his assistant-as you command your Pikmin to defeat enemies, propagate more Pikmin, collect precious doodads, and solve puzzles. With no time limit, new colors of Pikmin, and two-player cooperative play, Pikmin 2 improves on the original in every way.

Cool ;)

Just been thinking.

In the first one, Olimar comments on how he can't think at how the plants got so big. Meaning that he'd be used to normal sized plants and, presumably, animals and everything.
Sooo ..... if the game's set on his planet, everything should be in proportion, right?
Riiiight.

When you're drunk you must feel like you're tripping.

I found Pikmin hard but then I only played the first few levels while I was drunk and haven't played it since.

The day time bar's still there, so there's still daily time limit.

Maybe just not a limited number of days, total. But then 30 days was very easy on Pikmin (1).

It's all about the least days possible, so I don't see removing the total days time limit will make much difference.

Can't wait.

Hope it's big.
