Olimar was a terrible instructor, as seen in Pikmin 2. These three are better off learning through experience.

Does this mean we'll finally be able to have more Pikmin in the field?

But the new 3 look stupid Especially Charlie...

It's okay though, because I won't/don't have a WiiU!

This is the main reason why I will be buying a Wii U.

Interesting to see how the new characters will work out.

Saving a starving population perhap?

Don't really care for the new characters, I kinda wish they had just kept Olimar in at least but then I suppose it won't matter once you get busy playing. Besides, maybe they'll make up for it with lots of personality.

I like Charlie's design. Louie and Olimar were too generic looking to be taken seriously as captains--no stache, no nothin'.

Really though, I wonder how they can grow any hair when their species can't process oxygen.

I'm sad to see they brought the number of leaders down from four to three. I thought the design they had for the fourth looked much cooler than the other three.

I think Brittany and Charlie look kinda dumb, so Alph is my favorite of them. Their names are super unoriginal too.

Anyone notice how their head shapes are the same as the old leaders? Alph's is like Olimar's (round), Charlie's is like the President's (?plum-shaped?), and Brittany's head is shaped like Louie's (pear-shaped).

I like Brittany's design, and Charlie looks funny(in a good way), but I really don't like Alph's eyes.
