New Play Control! Pikmin News
We propose and pick apart Pikmin 4 theories
Last year we looked at the dormant Nintendo franchises we'd like to see return on Switch, and our desire to see any or all of those series again still burns strong in 2020. With Nintendo's biggest money-spinners having received a Switch entry already, it's now time to bring back some of the company's...
Partly as a plug for Hey! Pikmin pre-orders
Hey! Pikmin isn't too far away now on 3DS; actually, it is, it's not out until late July. Well, whatever, My Nintendo's latest update in North America is themed around the franchise and the upcoming portable spin-off; if you're getting a sense of deja-vu that's because the European service had the same...
Yo-kai Watch 2! Sonic Boom! Azure Striker Gunvolt 2! FAST DLC! Much more!
It's time once again for the North American Nintendo Download Update details. This week includes some tempting and - in some cases - high profile download-only releases on both systems, while the 3DS also has two retail releases to consider. Throw in some rather exciting...
The defintive version of Olimar's debut
Though the Pikmin series made its debut on the GameCube, it always felt more at home on the Wii. The style of gameplay that Pikmin employs just seems like a natural fit for pointer controls, so it was quite nice when the first two games were redone for the Wii. Perhaps in light of the recent announcement of...
Get a discount if you also buy Skyward Sword
During today's Nintendo Direct festivities it was confirmed that a new Pikmin game is coming to the 3DS in 2017, and it adopts a 2D side-scrolling approach.

If you lose your keys, just whistle
Club Nintendo rewards, in Europe particularly, aren't updated particularly regularly. When something new arrives, as a result, street parties are held, firework displays are common and gamers are merry. Well, OK, that doesn't happen, but considering that some of the existing rewards in Europe are DSi kits and...
Three down, more surely to come
Pikmin 3, after a lengthy development period, is now beginning to grace Wii U systems around the world, and is clearly a source of great pride for Shigeru Miyamoto. The famous Nintendo designer has described it as the "ultimate version of Pikmin 1", and to date it's received substantial critical praise, including a...
Games that tug the heartstrings
Valentine's Day is sometimes derided as a "Hallmark Holiday" - a day created for shops to sell stuff like greeting cards and chocolates due to feelings of obligation. Despite this, it must be said that having a day in which you're expected to express love and devotion to those closest to you can't be all...
Take over the world one garden at a time
Club Nintendo in Europe is on top of things. Stuff may be relatively expensive, but the variety and timeliness of gifts is usually much better than its American counterpart. Case in point: for 2000 stars, you can snag your very own blue Pikmin doll. The stuffed buggers are 24 cm, which isn't even close to life-size; kinda makes you wonder whether some sort..
We're still working on it: honest guvnor!
With all the excitement at E3 this year surrounding the new Super Mario games and Team Ninja’s take on Metroid it would be easy to forget about Shigsy’s plans for Pikmin 3. Could it be that the project has been forgotten about? Thankfully the good fellows over at Kotaku were able to get a bit of one on one time with the famed producer yesterday at E3 to..
