    According to Spanish newspaper El Mundo (as reported by Game Informer), Miyamoto says fans can expect to see the long-awaited Pikmin sequel at this year's E3 event. Game Informer later confirmed the news with a NoA rep.

    "In a recent interview, Mr. Miyamoto confirmed that a new Pikmin game will be shown at the E3 Expo in June," the representative said. "He believes that anyone who has played Pikmin games in the past will enjoy playing."

    This year's E3 event begins on June 5.

    I replayed Pikmin 1 and 2 with the NPC Wii versions in my dorm and I absolutely loved the nostalgia (and widescreen glory). I have no doubt that Pikmin 3 will be amazing.

    Looking forward to it. And really, when does Nintendo NOT win E3? Not a fanboy, but really, they know presentations.

    When they dedicate an entire show to Gamecube/GBA connectivity.

    Or if you're Guild.

    They're not always awesome but they still win because the others a very "meh". Still I really hope we don't get "hey look how well Wii/DS/3DS have done, here's some graphs..." on their show. They have A LOT to show, Wii U stuff & 3DS stuff.

    Nintendo ALWAYS do graphs, you know that.
    Can't wait for the Smash Bros. Kerfuffle reveal with Sakurai. That man is a god.

    Here's to hoping. If it's a Wii game, I'll most likely rage.

    Awesome! Pikmin 1 and 2 were great games (Although I liked 2 a lot more), so I'm looking forward to seeing info about Pikmin 3. E3 is going to be amazing this year, in terms of Nintendo products.

    Pikmin 1 and 2 for 3DS and Nintendo would have all my love.

    Pikmin 1 and 2 for 3DS + Pikmin 3 for Wii, and they automatically win E3

    Either way, Nintendo has been owning E3 pretty easily the last few years

    I looked up "pikmin fan art edgy" for the sake of a joke and got this...

    I realized that the joke was on me.

    Damn you, Nintendo. Damn you.

    Exactly what I was coming to post.

    I have no idea why it's taken them so fucking long to make a sequel. This series was pretty much a hit, so why the hold up? Hopefully this game will be good enough to warrant the long wait.
