    We know its been in development and was originally for the Wii. Then Mr Miyamoto said it was heading to Wii U, well by the end of E3 this year we would definitely be seeing it.

    Absolutely awesome news. Pikmin 2 is still imo one of the best games made, and if Pikmin 3 is a launch title for Wii-U, it's definately going to be my first played Wii-U game.

    EDIT: " He believes that anyone who has played Pikmin games in the past will enjoy playing."
    Uh.... anyone else worried that this means there is going to be some major change to the series? If it'll be another true pikmin game, why would he feel the need to say that?
    Maybe it's going to be a spinoff or something....

    I'd like to once again build up my army of pikmins ready to take over the world and its giant insects.
    I can already imagine myself throwing pikmin on the wii u pad. :yay:

    PICS OR GTFO.

    If this is legit then I might just buy the Wii U @ launch.

    I can't say much for the games (I never got around to playing them), but I'm not sure how effective this would be as a launch game for the system (if it will be a launch title at all).

    Sure, people will buy it, but would it have the same drawing power as a new Mario or Zelda game?

    Its legit, Kotaku won't lie like that.


    I'd doubt that its really meant to draw people in, its an additional game to the game that made you buy the console or for those who HAVE to have a Wii U regardless of what there is released.

    Might be because of the tablet controls. Since pikmin is a micro management game they probably based the control scheme around it. Least that is my guess :)

    I hope you don't have to wildly finger the touch screen to throw pikmin. The Wiimote+Nunchuck controls are great in the Wiimakes though, it would be nice if it supports that.

    Honestly them nailing this game is going to be crucial in even getting me to consider picking up one of these.

    Pikmin in HD, fuck yeah. The game already looks great in SD on the Gamecube. Just imagine those lush environments in HD.

    I wouldn't be suprised if this comes out at launch. After all, the game was in development for a while now (originally on the Wii).

    I still think Pikmin would make for a good PC game.

    I so can't wait to sacrifice more carrot-people for my own amusement.

    No, seriously, I want this game to do just that. :D I've had a blast with the first two, so the third is a must.

    Never really saw the appeal in Pikmin. I'm not a big RTS fan in general but Pikmin just seemed too simplified for that even. Plus I really only like the RTS games that involve like building a base and stuff.

    And I tried playing the first one a bit but I lost interest.
