Nintendo at E3 2011: Where were Pikmin 3 or The Last Story?

GPT: "Nintendo's E3 Press Conference this year was one of the most anticipated events of E3 for many denizens of the gaming hobby. For people like me who play games for fun and not to champion some console like a knight of old in order to win glory and maidens, I resign to my fate of simply enjoying as many video games as possible and not giving a crap about who makes them. Instead, I watched E3 objectively looking for new fun things to do over the next year and beyond." (3DS, E3, Kirby Mass Attack, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, Pikmin 3, The Last Story, Wii, Wii U)

Right with all of Nintendo's other quality-exclusives, nowhere to be seen! haha.

Pikmin 3 was actually confirmed at the Roundtable. But yea, it wasn't talked about at the actual conference.

The Last Story.......I give up on that, it's not coming out here lol.

the last story will see a north American release ... its one of those games you hope for in the land of sequels prequels and triquels? that game really stood out

@ fatstarr... the word you were looking for was trilogies. Lol.

I like the first Pikmin on the GC, but Pikmin 2 sucked it. Not too sure how the third one will pan out, but considering they won't even talk about it, not good.

Just because they don't talk about it doesn't mean its bad.
Miyamoto stated that because of the Wiius horsepower he would love to see the game on that platform. Development actually started for the Wii but then got switched for Wiiu.

They don't need to talk about it, and if they don't it doesn't mean it a thing.

Yeah, Pikmin was moved to the Wii U because of the horsepower.

Had nothing to do with them abandoning the Wii and having nothing to put on the Wii U...

Definitely because of the horsepower, cos you know Pikmin is all about the visuals.

Miyamoto is such a corporate slave.

Miyamoto is such a corporate slave."

Why not look at the video on e3.nintendo.com
He states it himself that the extra power can really put justice to the aesthetics. Cause its something that COMPLIMENTS Pikmin.

Not sure where he stab is coming from.
Who wouldn't wanna see pikmin with beautiful environments?

I'd say the extra power could COMPLIMENT skyward sword a hell of a lot more.

Oh, and I have beaten Pikmin 1 and 2.
ChickeyCantor  +   1630d ago
Skyword sword was already going trough final stages.

So even if skyward sword could benefit from it more,sounds like you want it on the Wii?
Wiiu can provide so much more detail ( like troops of pikmins, good looking flora and whatever...and this is a bad thing?) .

Not sure why you don't want it on the WiiU..
Knushwood Butt  +   1630d ago
You seem to have missed my point.

Point was that Miyamoto sounds stupid trying to explain away boardroom decisions.

He's a corporate slave.

VampiricDragon  +   1630d ago

Desert Turtle  +   1630d ago
Even if that were to happen, the Wii is still region locked.

Pikmin is one of those games I would really like to play someday. I never played when it first came out, but their Smash Bros. Brawl peaked my interest in it. ^_^
