1. Pikmin 3
Famously one of Shigeru Miyamoto's favourite games the puzzler which was one of the few GameCube titles to shout about almost ten years ago, is back. Once again the cutesy real-time strategy title let’s you control an army of ant-like creatures around a rich environment with GamePad support that means you can scroll around the map or use Wiimote and Nunchuk from the Wii to navigate the Pikmin around. There’s a new Challenge mode and a Rock Pikmin to throw at hard objects and judging from the footage, sports some slick visuals.
