Winged Pikmin aircraft to fly at Red Bull Flugtag Ottawa-Gatineau

Nintendo of Canada will enter an aircraft designed after Pikmin 3's winged Pikmin in Red Bull Flugtag Ottawa-Gatineau.

Red Bull Flugtag Ottawa-Gatineau is a regular event hosted by Red Bull in which participants create human-powered aircrafts and launch them off a 22-foot ramp. Participants are awarded points for how far they fly, how creative their aircraft is and showmanship.

Winged Pikmin are one of two new breeds included in the upcoming game. The Pikmin ship, which you can view above, is a nod to Pikmin 3's North American release on Aug. 4. For more on the game, check out our in-depth piece from E3 2013.

Red Bull Flugtag Ottawa-Gatineau takes place July 27.
