Time for all you Pikmin fans to start digging, and I don’t mean for strange little carrot creatures either. Nintendo Creative Director Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed the existence of a secret code hidden within the game, and he wants you to find it.
Taking to the Miiverse to make the announcement, Miyamoto explained the basics to finding the secret code.
I don’t suppose you’ve come across any Secret Memos while playing through the Story? Did you know that once you’ve collected ten of these Secret Memos, the numbers contained in them will combine to form a special code? I’ll be in touch again to explain how to use the code, so be sure to make a note of it once you have it!
I have not come across any Secret Notes in the game, but that is of course because the game has not yet been released in America! Hopefully Miyamoto gives American gamers the same opportunity he has given Japanese, Australian, and European gamers to uncover the notes before he succumbs to excitement and spoils the fun.
Just two more days Miyamoto. Just bite your tongue and wait a bit longer, please.
Pikmin 3 is launching for the Wii U on August 4th around the country. Those who pre-ordered the game digitally on the Nintendo eShop can check it out tomorrow. You can read our thoughts on it in our review here.
