Pikmin 3 Short Films, Previously Paywalled On The Eshop, Are Now Available For Free

The Pikmin 3 short films released in 2014 are now free to watch.


Pikmin 3 Deluxe is coming to Nintendo Switch on October 30, and in preparation for the series' return, Nintendo has released some Pikmin short films on YouTube. These films, which were originally released as a bundle of three on the 3DS and Wii U Eshops for $5, are now free.

The movies have been uploaded to Nintendo Japan's YouTube page, and we've embedded all three short films below. These movies initially debuted at the Tokyo International Film Festival.

Occupational Hazards

Treasure in a Bottle

The Night Juicer

These videos were originally available in stereoscopic 3D on 3DS, but these are the HD versions that were released on the Wii U.
