Fast-forward, rewind or pause while assessing the previous mission to decide on other paths.In addition to the five original types of Pikmin encountered in previous games, the new Rock Pikmin bring powerful new abilities and are able to crack hard outer shells of enemies and break through solid barriers.Mission Mode challenges players to earn the most treasure in a given time.
