Gotta love 'em!

According to the Official Nintendo Magazine, Miyamoto has just confirmed that development of Pikmin 3 is "well under way". Unfortunately, we still don't know if the game is being developed for the Nintendo Wii or DS system.

At the very least this is great news for fans of the series who've been patiently waiting for a new Pikmin release since the second title was released on the Gamecube console back in 2004.

We'll keep you posted on any new information regarding the game and hopefully we'll get some juicy new information at the upcoming E3 show in Los Angeles in June.
