Good Things Come to Those Who Wait: Pikmin 3

From Toasty Controller...

"Yep, Pikmin is skipping the Wii. This is far from the worst thing in the world, the Wii U is no doubt going to be at least twice as strong as the Wii thus leaving room for a much better overall title, but the controller... how the heck is this gonna work?

Let's not forget the last time an iconic Nintendo franchise completely skipped a console. Metroid managed to never find a fitting home on the Nintendo 64, after a Metroid hiatus on that console we went on to receive arguably the greatest game in the entire series, maybe even the greatest game to release for the GameCube; Metroid Prime. This was the first game in the series to appear on a console since Super Metroid released for the SNES in 1994, and Prime released in 2002. Yeah, a whopping eight year difference." ( Pikmin 2, GameCube, Nintendo, Pikmin, Wii, Wii U)

I loved pikmin it's the only RTS I ever really loved. Seriously hope they make a third I've been itching for a new one. Its one of the reasons why I watch the Nintendo conference at E3

Yeah pikmin was awesome, but if you have a Wii and liked pikmin I HIGHLY suggest playing "Little Kings Story" as it is heavily influenced by pikmin and a very worthy game of any pikmin fan.

They shouldn't make it only for the Wii U. The console will cost probably 250 dollars then 60 bucks for 1 game! They can make a Nintendo 3DS version and call it Pikmin 3D! That would be fun!

They have already said the Wii U would be significantly more expensive then the Wii at launch (straight from Reggie)... no official price, but my guess would be in the range of $400, $350 at its cheapest, and games... not sure, since it will be ahead of PS3 and 360 it could be 60, but because it will only be ahead for a short time before PS4 and whatever Xbox calls their new system, it just may stay at $50. Here's hoping I guess.

But back on topic Pikmin is awesome and I can't wait to play 3 when it launches.

I would love to see how well a Nintendo console does at that price range.
