The lights are on
Hidden throughout Pikmin 3 are ten secret memos that players can find during the story mode. At first glance, these little confounding notes might not appear to be much. However, famed Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed that they are a pieces of a puzzle.
NeoGAF user Jaded Alyx captured the following image that Miyamoto posted on Miiverse.
Have you found any of the memos? Any ideas about what the big secret might be? Let us know in the comments (and be sure to read our glowing review of Pikmin 3).
Our TakeI played Pikmin for the first time this year on the Wii (New Play Control version). I had a hard time getting into it, and had planned to skip Pikmin 3 (which looks absolutely gorgeous).
For me, this kind of hidden meta-puzzle is a throwback to everything I love about Miyamoto's earlier work. I love the tease, I love that there is mystery buried deep, and I love being reminded about why Miyamoto is one of the greatest this industry has ever seen.

Hopefully my brother get this for his birthday so that I can play it! It comes out 2 days after his birthday.
I'll try to find the code.... once the game actually makes it onto US shelves this weekend.
AWWW YEAHH!!! I can't wait to see what the secret message is!! Hopefully its a message about the new IP he's working on or a clue about Zelda U!
I can not wait for PIKMIN 3
I already have it paid for!
I can't wait until Sunday!! Less than 1 year ago, I finally 100%'ed Pikmin 2 and it was some of the most fun I've had playing a game ever :) And man oh man do I love my Nintendo!
Oh, awesome! I'll check it out, I think I've collected most of the memos. That's not the only message really, the whole game has a pretty cool environmental message.
This should be quite the scavenger hunt indeed.
It's really awesome that Nintendo still does these kinds of things.
Further proof that Miyamoto is the most brilliant man on the planet.
Find all ten memos and you can fight Slenderman.
I'm really afraid this is gonna be a really pointless message... Haha
Boot up those Wii U consoles and start searching!!
