Pikmin 3 trailer is wholly adorable

"A thirty-second trailer?" I asked, trying to raise one eyebrow and look witheringly cool. "There's no way I'll post that." Thirty seconds later, here, look: a new trailer for Pikmin 3. It is delightful.

I saw some flying Pikmin carrying a pear and all the Pikmin floating down a stream on a lilypad and they were in the snow and they were picking fruit off branches I was happy and there were monsters but they were cute too and one of them spat a snowball but it's all okay!

Pikmin 3 is coming exclusively to Wii U on August 4. Nintendo has experimented with bringing the strategy series portable, but found its prototypes were never up to scratch.
