Watch the Winged Pikmin take flight on July 27 at the Red Bull Flugtag event!

2013-07-23

Inspired by the new character in Pikmin 3, Nintendo of Canada has built a Winged Pikmin! The flying machine is scheduled to launch off of the Flight Deck at Red Bull's Flugtag event on July 27 in Ottawa-Gatineau.

Team/Aircraft Name: Winged Pikmin

Nintendo of Canada has built a Winged Pikmin, a NEW type of life-form in the Pikmin series of video games and making its debut in Pikmin 3!!!

Pikmin 3 is a new game coming to Wii U. In the Pikmin 3 game, players take command of three explorers and a legion of Pikmin in a fight for survival. By employing the unique abilities of these tiny Pikmin creatures, players will solve puzzles, battle dangerous predators and recover food needed to save the explorers’ depleted home planet.

Pikmin come in different forms and the Winged Pikmin is a NEW character that we thought would be super appropriate for Flugtag, obviously because it can fly!

Watch it take flight on July 27 at the Red Bull Flugtag event in Ottawa-Gatineau!
