It seems ages since we first heard about Pikmin 3, doesn't it? Shigeru Miyamoto apologised for its no show way back at E3 2010, and it was the same at last year's show. There'll be no such apology this year, as Nintendo confirms we will see Pikmin 3 in June.

The Wii U threequel will be the first HD entry in the series, but other than that we don't know much. A Nintendo representative told Kotaku:

In a recent interview, Mr. Miyamoto confirmed that a new Pikmin game will be shown at the E3 Expo in June. He believes that anyone who has played Pikmin games in the past will enjoy playing.

So there you go: a new Pikmin game that Pikmin fans will enjoy. Post your reaction to this bombshell in the comments below.
