    I fell in love with Pikmin once I played it on the Gamecube. I wonder if they are going to make one for the ds. I guess its one of those things like Super Smash Brothers still waiting I guess. Is there a game like Pikmin?

    I just can't wait until those 2 games come out, hopefully they will.

    There should be Pikmin DS... I want it. Together with a Wii version would be cool, with nice connecting fuctions that go beyond item exchange gimmicks. How about an online multiplayer that works with both the DS and the Wii version? [​IMG]

    The DS wouldn't do Pikmin justice in my opinion. There's no way it'd look as nice as it should, not to mention animating hundreds of little Pikmin models at once would be almost impossible.

    Pikmin really doesn't need to be rendered in 3D. They could do an excellent pikmin game with 2D graphics, and it would look much better than if they tried to do it in 3D.

    3D pikmin on the DS would suck. Even on the gamecube you can barely see those little bastards sometimes.

    Well, maybe it could work with 2D sprites in a 3D environment.

    Still, the environment was one of the big plusses in Pikmin, everything looked very nice, and dare I say, realistic. I don't know if you could achieve that on the DS.
