Miyamoto’s animated Pikmin short films, which were released in Japan last month, are now available in the West, on both the Wii U and 3DS eShop.

You can purchase the three films in a package for $4.99. The 3DS versions will be viewable in 3D, and the Wii U versions in HD, so let us know which one you end up downloading. There’s also a trailer, which you can view above.

The Pikmin news continues with the release of a Pikmin 3 demo for the Wii U. The demo will allow the transfer of save data to the full game, so its a good excuse to try one of last year’s best games for the Wii U if you haven’t already had the chance.
