What's a space traveler to do without his trusty spaceship? Don't panic, but you're going to have to seek out all of the parts of your once solid craft in this epic search. A collision with a meteor has left your ship in pieces strewn about a foreign planet. Now, your spacesuit is the only protection against a deadly atmosphere and lots of enemies. In addition, you'll be challenged to protect the tiny Pikmin, a local life form that develops into leaves, buds, and flowers.
