Pikmin 3 gameplay video demonstrates a fight against a giant enemy crab

In-game footage of upcoming Wii U release Pikmin 3 was shown during today's Nintendo Direct conference.

The short video shows off in-game combat between Pikmin and a giant crab, as well as exploration through a dark area lit by mushrooms as the player performs ranged attacks on a number of different enemy types. These include lumbering fire-breathing creatures and an enormous flying enemy that create torrents of wind around the Pikmin.

The game is slated to release next spring.
