In an announcement that we genuinely hadn't predicted, Shigeru Miyamoto just made an appearance at the Nintendo Direct Showcase to reveal that Pikmin 4 is on its way, finally! Check out the teaser trailer above.

While there was little in terms of gameplay or release information, Miyamoto stated that the game is going to employ a new Pikmin deployment mechanic in which you will be able to play in a mode much closer to the ground.

After only seeing one brief screenshot and small teaser, we don't have a lot to go on here; however, that doesn't mean that our excitement is any lessened. It looks like we are going to find out more in the coming months as the game is currently listed for release next year.
