UPDATE: You can now see footage of the new control option in action after the jump!
Even though Pikmin 3 is nine months old, it looks like Nintendo is still supporting it. A recent software update for Pikmin 3 adds yet another control option to what was already a very customizable game: stylus control.
The stylus control option is often likened to "Pikmin Adventure," from Nintendo Land, so players who love Nintendo Land's Pikmin attraction will find themselves right at home controlling the full adventure with the Wii U GamePad and its touch screen.
I haven't downloaded this update yet myself, but the internet's reaction is looking pretty positive. If you have Pikmin 3, you can download the update and tell us what you think!
