Back in the fall of 2001, a great Gamecube title landed on store shelves only a couple of weeks after the console launched. Pikmin was the brainchild of legendary Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto, and it's about to make its return on the Wii U with its third installment. Owners of Nintendo's new console should be excited, as it's been too long since we've had an armada of adorable aliens nipping at our heels.

Considering how long it's been since a new Pikmin was released, we decided to take a look back at the original. Join Andrew Reiner, intern Jordan LaPorte, myself, and a departing Jim Reilly as we guide Captain Olimar on his quest to repair his spaceship.
