Man, I wasn't expecting Pikmin 4 info to be so casually dropped.

Having a character creator is a fun idea.

A character creator poses it's own difficulties for story telling. With most custom characters, you're essentially decorating a plank of wood. They don't say anything during cutscenes, and their personality is non-existent. Compare that to previous games. Olimar could express his inner thoughts through his diary, and Louie was a massive goofball. I also liked the interactions between Alph, Brittany, and Charlie. Even if only one member of the rescue team is your custom character, that's still one character that's might be not contributing much to the story while the others are chatting it up.
