The Ten Pikmin Secret Codes Reveal Videos

Recently, we told you about a set of secret codes hidden within Pikmin 3. According to Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto, they unlock a number of special videos.

In a new Miiverse post, Miyamoto explains that the codes must be entered using the blue internet browser symbol. The videos can only be viewed through the Wii U.

If you don't want to go through the trouble of finding the codes yourself, GameXplain has done the hard work for you. They've posted a video (embedded below) that shows the misadventures of Captain Olimar and his sidekick Louie.

Whether this is the end, or just another breadcrumb on the trail has not yet been revealed. However, NeoGAF users speculate that one of the areas shown is not featured in the core game. Additionally, whatever makes the loud growl in the final clip is not shown.

What do you think? Are these videos the big reward, or is there something left up Miyamoto's sleeve?

Our Take
These videos are amusing, but I bet Miyamoto is teasing something bigger. Nintendo has gotten more involved with DLC, and it wouldn't be shocking to see some new content for Pikmin.
