    This is awesome if it's legit, a full Pikmin game, and for the WiiU.

    Hopefully it's not for the Wii U, the Wii U is a horrible console. I think it should be on the n3dsxl

    Why is it a horrible console?

    Wouldn't a Pikmin game on such a small screen would be unplayable? The whole game would have to be simplified; 100 Pikmin on screen would be intensive on the 3DS as well as a pixelated mess to look at.

    Nope. The Pikmin God has already stated that a 3DS Pikmin wouldn't work. Pikmin 4 will probably be a NX launch title.

    I guess ill never understand Pikmin cuz I couldn't get into it on gamecube. However I hope it comes out for Wii U and maybe NX because those who bought a wii u deserve more before the Nx comes out. Can't wait for Star Fox Zero myself. :)

    Well, it is his opinion, no matter how flawed it is. I could easily say the 3DS and all its variants are horrible consoles, but without any substantiation to my argument, it would be meaningless.

    I am open minded, I want to hear his opinion before I do anything. If he gives me a good enough reason, he might even change my thinking towards the console.

    Well, at least I will give you my opinions in this aspect.
    The Wii U is not really horrible, but the lack of software makes it a PITA.
    Also the gamepad was a bad idea, it just isn't nice. A control system that would be uniform so that every player uses the same (like classic pro game controllers or wiimotes) would have been better.
    Of course you can just ignore the big piece of cumbersome controller and let it collect dust while you use pro controllers or so.
    The Wii U online services are bad, but at least they are not classic Nintendo bad.
    The hardware and graphic capabilities are OK, and the size and power consumption are great.
    A normal user will need a bigger USB HDD, and the lack of power in the USB ports that makes you either use two ports for an external unpowered HDD or use additional power adapters and cables for an powered one is... stupid... hell, the Wii was able to handle the required power.

    TL;DR: The only thing that really makes the Wii U horrible is the awful lack of game variety and quantity, and the very bad PR that Nintendo is doing that makes you believe that they will not support it strongly anymore (perhaps that's just in my head).
    PS: And the lack of a Metroid game, yes, that makes it horrible.

    I love the guy but
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I got Pikmin 3 for free when I bought Mario Kart 8. I haven't turned it on yet. I heard it's really good but I can't bring myself to do it even after all this time for some reason.

    The same happened to me. Actually I think I went through 3 or 4 levels, it still felt like an introduction/tutorial, and I left it there to connect virtual dust.
    I suppose I don't find it addictive at all.

    Hm, I never expected the next pikmin to be here so soon, and like many I also have 3 but havent played past the start yet. It didn't capture me that much anymore. I would be more interested if it was on 3DS to be honest, but I doubt it will be.

    Good God... They knew this would happen! That's how they could give it away for free! I also haven't played mine much, even though I loved the first one

    If this one DOES come out it will light the fire needed to complete 3 I guess

    I liked Pikmin but the problem is Pikmin 3 was just too easy I liked the first one better since it gave a very good challenge but 3 was still ok.
    I am disappointed Nintendo are not making a proper metroid title or not releasing zelda Wii u since I really like those but at least the next Pikmin will not be a disappointment well i hope
    I would really like the Pikmin to have online multiplayer
