Knowing how to command your Pikmin is key—and luckily, it’s easy to do. Pikmin 3 offers several different control schemes for total flexibility.
Starting 5/29/14, you can aim and throw your Pikmin using a stylus and the Wii U GamePad's touchscreen.
The Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers make aiming and throwing your Pikmin simple and intuitive. Just point to the area on the screen where you want your Pikmin to go, and send them flying with the press of a button. This also lets you keep the GamePad by your side so you can view maps and all kinds of other helpful information as you play.
