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.
going to be great
Hopefully it comes out next year (I'd like it to be this year, but I'm probably dreaming). I'm dying to play a new Pikmin game.
i never played this game,is it good?
If it is DS, I will cry.
Then, of course, I will buy it anyway. Next I will play it. Soon after that I will fall completely in love with it and realize that my misgivings were unfounded all along.
If it's DS, I will cry.
i just wet myself (not really). im so happy!
The pikmin series is really good and you should really get 1 and 2 sometime.
I'm enjoying the first Pikmin at the moment and I heart the second one is better. So the third one should be awesome.
I'm hoping for DS myself.
I got the first one and don't see a need for another, but if they can make it robust and compelling I'll be there.
WOW this made my day!
Never played the first 2, but want to play those and this. I'm waiting for New Play Control Pikmin 2 to release in America. Although, didn't he "confirm" that Pikmin 3 is in development a year and a half ago?
What #11 said, didn't he confirm that a new Pikmin was on the way at last year's E3?
Regardless, looking forward to this
I hope it comes soon!
And I had never even thought about it being on DS, but I don't see why not. Seems like a perfect fit, and after the NPC games I'm not sure it would be quite as exciting on Wii.
I'm honestly looking forward to this game more than Galaxy 2, Other M and even Zelda. Pikmin 2 was amazing, and I've had to go cold turkey for six years. I need my Pikmin fix.
WII VERSION PLEASE!!
I would suspect it would be for the Wii.
Im hoping for the DS, the Wii just isnt cutting it anymore.
Until I see some concrete, physical evidence of Pikmin 3, I refuse to believe it's happening, no matter how many confirmations of its development Miyamoto-san gives us.
I've wanted Pikmin 3 to happen far more than any other sequel for any other series, on any other platform for six years now; I don't want to get all psyched up for it, only to hear that the development team decided - or was told - to spend their time making another Mario spin-off or something.
But still, this is certainly much more encouraging than reading of its demise.
I have the first Pikmin for the Wii, yet I havent played it yet.
So my excitement is at a zero hehe.
It is going to be on wii. Why would they rerelease gamecube pikmin games if they were not making it for the wii?
Dreams do come true.
YES!!! Im looking forward to this on the WII.
i hope he realizes that pikmin 2 is not in NOA (for wii) and it's time to publish it
this has to be on the wii, it will suck if not, but they can make a DS version too. maybe to interact bla bla.
This is officially the best year ever.
DS or Wii I'm good either way
I'm hoping for a Wii version. If it were DS, I would likely not find the controls and graphics anywhere near as appealing as the console games. Of course, that would only be if it's the same style as the other 2.
I thought this was confirmed a while ago...
This was confirmed a while ago, and second time at last year's E3 when in an interview Reggie stated that the reason there was nothing on Pikmin 3 then was that they didn't feel it had enough to release anything on yet
Nonetheless I am excited
O_O Great Arceus almighty, why is everyone so excited?! Pikmin isn't THAT great.
Oh yes it is.
Making it for the DS would be an epic win! The touch controls would be perfect!
I'd still rather have a new Star Fox, new Kid Icarus, or Mother 4.
Anyway, I read this and just.
Meh, I'm not a fan
Would be better for Wii rather than DS, but its got to be all new, can't just be a slight improvement over the previous games.
I don't think the DS could handle 100 Pikmin on screen at once. Wii all the way.
I didn't like Pikmin, actually. At least not the first one.
I haveint play it but thats grate news. And other game I'll have to try!!! Nintendo makes so many good games.
I absolutely loved the first one, so I'll be getting this.
I recently picked up the NPC Pikmin, but haven't opened it yet. Looks like I'll need to get to it. I have my doubts that were going to see NPC Pikmin 2 in the US. I think the New Play Control line was pretty much a mistake for Nintendo. Instead of releasing new games, they released old ones, just with new controls. It was bad PR. Not that the games weren't improved, but they should have been working on new games, not old ones.
I guess this is the game that Miyamoto currently has his hands full with
HECK... YES! I really want this to be for the Wii (I don't have a DS).
If this comes out in the 2nd half of the year, along with a new Legend of Zelda game... /dies!
I CAN'T FREAKING WAIT!!
Finally. I'm sure it is going to be on the Wii and the controls will be similiar to the Wii controls for the Pikmin 1 port.
@Koto: To be fair, he has/had his hands full with Galaxy 2 and Zelda Wii Miyamoto is one busy guy
AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YESSS!!!!!!!!!!! FINALLYY!!!!
Aight now that i calmed down i can say that if its gonna be on the ds it will be for the DS succesor not the Ds because i dont think it has the power, capabilty, or graphics(for that matter). So for my part, i hope its for the DS 2....... THAT WOULD BE FREAKIN AWESOME!!!!! AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! (freaks out again)
Finally! I can't wait! I'm hoping that it's for the Wii, but I wouldn't be too upset if it turns out to be released for the DS.
Maybe you Americans are getting pikmin 2 bundled with pikmin 3 and thats why its not been released?
Hopefully we'll get Pikmin 2 new play control soon now. Surprised we haven't gotten it yet.
@ Croz That would sort of suck actually, since it wouldn't space out the games. Unless they had it as a free preorder bonus like they did with WW and OoT Master Quest.
I think the days of preorder bonuses that sweet are gone, however. I could see it coming in the fall though, I'd imagine there'll be a pretty big gap between Galaxy/Other M and whatever Holiday games are coming.
Pikmin 2 is like my favourite game ever, I've been waiting for this for years!!
hmm, I doubt we'll see 2 bundled with 3, maybe a trilogy special edition like with Metroid? I'm not going to play 3 if I can't play pikmin2. And I'm not going to play the cube version when I know a wii version exists.
BBBOOOYYYAAAHHH! THANK YOU NINTENDO!
HOLY CRAP ANOTHER SEQUEL?!?!
I don't have this kind of money!
Anyway, I'm defenetley going to buy this.
YES! Woooohooo! It paid off real well! Thank you, Lord!
Considering how the first two looked on the GCN, I honestly can't wait to see how this one look on the Wii...it better be on the Wii! OR ELSE!!...(I'll buy it regardless anyway, lol)
Oh yeah, and also...MULTIPLAYER ADVENTURE MODE, NAO!!! lol
I have NPC Pikmin 2 but I'd love a Pikmin 3 DS. I hope at least it is on the DS, but I have a feeling that it'll be a wii game.
Unless NPC Pikmin 2 is released in America in some fashion (I suspect a special "1 & 2" bundle released after a big E3 Pikmin 3 reveal would sell MUCH better than individual NPC releases, for example), I'm not getting this. There's just no going back to the GCN controls after NPC Pikmin 1, besides which Pikmin 2 on GCN is rare and expensive.
If they DO finally release a Wii version of Pikmin 2, however, this is good news. Not useless like some people said, because it confirms a sense of PROGRESS. For a game having been announced at E3 2008 and then ignored, it's good just to know they're still working on it. I wouldn't be surprised if it got a bigger reveal at this year's E3 and a "holiday" release.
AWESOME!!! I remember when I first got Pikmin and thought it would be a dumb game and I loved it, then got Pikmin 2 which I played for a long time and finally beat it.
I'm so exited. I wonder if there will be new types of Pikmin.
Fanstatic News I'm really happy! Oh yes.
here´s a "YAY!"
Ops, accidentally pressed "enter" before I was finished with the comment
Awesome! I reeeaaallly hope it on the wii
awesome, first they need to port pikmin 2 to the wii
This reminds me that I still need to finish 2.
Its about time. Last years tease of the remake made me mad. Thought it was to be a new game when first announced!
i"ve beaten both pikmin 1 and 2 many many times for the past couple months now and i cant wait for pikmin 3 yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy :]
