Pikmin is a strategy video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo GameCube video game console in 2001. Pikmin is the first game in the Pikmin series of video games, and the third game for the gamecube overall. It was designed by Shigeru Miyamoto. The sequel, Pikmin 2, was released in 2004. The image song, "Ai No Uta" by Strawberry Flower, appeared in the Japanese commercials for the game, but soon became an unexpected hit song, eventually eclipsing Pikmin's sales. As of March 31, 2002, Pikmin has sold over one million copies.

2.0 Windows XP x86 AMD Athlon II x2 215 @ 3.45GHz NVIDIA GeForce 7025 (: Game completed! Sound disappears in intro and some other places. Small slowdowns in huge places. †.fl.l).
r7687 Windows 7 x64 AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400 @ 2.2GHz NVIDIA GeForce GT 440 Perfect, but having more than 60 active Pikmins causes the game to slow down. Endres
^3.0 Mac OS X 10.7.4 Lion x64 Intel Core i7 @ 2.2GHz AMD Radeon HD 6750M Works great at 100% speed almost all of the time, using 80+ Pikmin will cause a slight slowdown (from 100% to 87%, not major at all). No bugs encountered, completely finished the game. Axxer
r7714 Windows 7 x64 Intel Core i3-370M @ 2.4GHz AMD Radeon HD 6370M Fully playable: No slowdowns, no known glitches.
3.0-151 Windows 7 x64 AMD Phenom II X6 Black 1100T AMD Radeon HD 6850 Perfect, without any crash or slowdown during all game, just some audio crackling sometimes, I recommend LLE audio plugin Aldaris
3.0-201 Windows 7 x64 Intel Core i7-2700K @ 4.2GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 HD Perfect with LLE audio plugin bcheng
3.0-801 Windows 7 x64 Intel Core i7-2670QM @ 2.2GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M Perfect, minor slow down with 100 Pikmin in the field with LLE Audio enabled. AR Codes no longer appear to crash the Emulator on Startup Phazon Lord
