Nintendo's E3 showing was quite a success for fans, showcasing the new 3DS handheld and the return of beloved characters in the forms of Donkey Kong Country Returns, Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kid Icarus: Uprising. But despite the slew of new reveals, one question couldn't be shaken:
What's up with Pikmin 3?
An investor during a recent Q&A session asked Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto what he was up to lately with regards to new games. While busy with 3DS things, he acknowledged that he's also been working on a certain previously announced project.
Amongst the present promises, I have to finish Pikmin quickly, so production is progressing extremely well.
Development of Pikmin 3 was first revealed, somewhat reluctantly, during a journalist Q&A session at E3 2008 with nary a peep on it since.
Sweet. I played the NPC version of Pikmin a little, and I definitely saw potential for something amazing.
Its going SOO WELL but we haven't heard squat in 2 years since its announcement
I have never played a Pikmin game. Not sure if I would like one.
And yet still no NA release for NPC Pikmin 2. grumble
More playing with colored ants.
As long I can still battle with them, and watch them die, then its a must buy
Please, Miyamoto-san, just throw me a bone. Just one screenshot is all I ask for! I started getting the shakes four years ago!
I believe he mentioned that it was for Wii during a recent interview with IGN.
Miyamoto said he wants it out fast soood thing development is going well
I can't wait!!
It's about time!
Why nobody asks to Mr. Miyamoto what is up to F-ZERO or Star Fox?
I hope it's for the 3DS, but I doubt it. It's been in development for awhile now (almost a year before the 3DS was even announced). Although, Miyamoto did say this: "My basic idea is that the sense of the depth of the game and the simplicity of the control will all be there."
Notice the word DEPTH.
I think it would be cool if it came out for the 3DS. Pikmin '3'DS. Get it? I said the same thing about Kingdom Hearts '3'DS. But no, I know it's coming for the Wii.
I just hope they make two player battle mode even more awesome. I still play Pikmin 2 for its battle mode.
I don't like how he said, "I gotta finish it quickly". I fear the game is gonna feel rushed and won't be as good as the last 2, but the simple fact is, the franchise has lots more potential. I just hope it will be really good and have as much charm as SMG2, because it's one of my favorite nintendo franchises.
@komicturtle92: maybe its coming for both
I unloaded the NPC version of the first game awhile ago, so I'm ready for this one if it delivers the goods.
it will definetly not be rushed if its taken this long to even announce NEWS on it. it will definetly not be rushed. anyone else agree?
That's good, at least we heard SOMETHING about Pikmin 3.
Seriously can't wait for Pikmin 3.
Though I hope it won't be rushed. But if it's not it's gonna be awesome!
I think 2 player co-op should be an option for the story mode, or maybe not... I don't know if the game would be any good if they designed the levels for split screen and you're just playing by yourself
