We're certainly intrigued to see how the Arzest-developed Hey! Pikmin turns out on 3DS, with the spin-off adopting a 2D approach and offering something very different from the home console titles. Of course, it's not Pikmin 4, a title many want for the Nintendo Switch.

Eurogamer, which first quoted Shigeru Miyamoto regarding Pikmin 4 back in 2015, followed up with the legendary Creative Fellow on the game. Clearly aware of the unnecessary pressure he created by talking about it two years ago, Miyamoto-san only gave a mild reassurance this time around.

"I've been told not to share anything about this from PR," Miyamoto laughed, "but I can tell you it is progressing."

In mid-2016 Miyamoto-san spoke of challenges prioritising work on the next full entry on the series, but hopefully - like Pikmin 3 on Wii U - it'll be worth the wait.

Are you eager to see Pikmin 4 on Nintendo Switch?

Thanks to all that sent this in.
