    For those that remember, back in 2015 Nintendo said that the game was close to being finished so it's safe to assume that in 2016 the game was golden for a commercial release. Yet, here we are in 2017 and Pikmin 4 for the Switch (they kinda cancelled it for the WiiU with that statement) and the Switch list doesn't feature it either.

    Eurogamer: Pikmin 4 in development and "very close to completion"

    The Switch games' list:

    Considering how terrible the launch lineup of the Switch is, Pikmin 4 should be there as it'd give variety for the customers to pick up more than one good game.

    Since Zelda was the last title for Wii U. So, I bet that they decide to transfer it to Switch version instead of Wii U and stay quiet for a Pikmin 4 ? I think they will release it someday. E3 for this summer, perhaps ? Yeah.

    If the launch lineup was stronger then more people would consider the Switch but as it is, it's only going to be aimed at Nintendo players. Lack of third party titles doesn't help either.

    I agree completely. Launch titles are important if you want to sell the system. At least we know there are at least 80 or more games already in development for it, including some I am personally VERY excited for, such as Yooka-Laylee. Thats something, at least.

    Then we will have to wait and see If the third party titles increase at the end of this year and next year. It is only a beginning of March with some 3rd party list. Just wait and see. :)

    I mean, although most are smaller titles, there have already been more announcements after the presentation.

    I would be surprise if I didn't hear something about at or before E3.

    Man i love pikmin. I own ever copy of them.
    I hope they make one for the switch it would be great. And they need to make one that is true mulitplayer and add some online play.
    That would be great. Battle your pikmin with others. Take on bosses together etc...

    Be we will see what The Big N does.

    Have faith. They will transfer it to Switch instead of Wii U, I am sure!
